Who we are @ Driftrock

Driftock is a software platform founded in 2013 that uses data to help start meaningful conversations between people and brands. 

We do this by creating, connecting, and managing all the surfaces and data where customers choose to interact with brands. 

We work with some of the world’s best data-driven brands, such as BMW, Volvo, BT and Vitality.

We are a team of 20 people who care deeply about what we do. As a result, you’ll have a huge impact on Driftrock’s culture, product, and how we work. 

Driftrock is a remote-first company but also provides flexible workspace passes if you need them, giving you the freedom to choose how and where you would like to work each day. 

About the team & technology

You will be joining a small team of engineers who are deeply passionate about technology and problem solving, and you will have a chance to make a huge impact on the culture and practices of the team, and the wider company.

We believe in continuous improvement and we are constantly optimising how we work and communicate. 

We plan our work weekly, using a lean approach (a mixture of Kanban and eXtreme Programming). This way we are able to deploy several times a day, allowing us to have a short feedback cycle on our changes.

We have a data-driven mindset and we use data to drive decisions on everything from user story prioritisation to company strategy.

We also strongly believe in observable systems and keeping a close eye on how our product is behaving.

Our platform is made of multiple services (mainly built in Elixir, plus some Ruby services that we are transitioning to Elixir), talking to each other via APIs and RabbitMQ and storing data in Postgresql and redis. All services are hosted on Google Cloud using Kubernetes.

We have fully embraced Phoenix LiveView for our frontend. We still enjoy playing with it and keeping up with all the exciting updates as part of our journey of experimentation on new technologies.


  • 3 years+ of software experience
  • You should have a backend experience (Elixir and Ruby are our favourites but everyone’s welcome) and some experience with frontend frameworks.
  • You should demonstrate a desire to continuously learn to improve your technical, communication and other soft skills.
  • You value and enjoy working in a small team, collaborating closely with other engineers as well as members of other teams.
  • You can provide new and diverse viewpoints for our technical and product discussions.
  • You are interested in, and have a view on agile practices such as eXtreme Programming, continuous delivery, TDD, pair programming, code reviews and retrospectives.
  • You are keen to ensure there is a high standard of quality and security in the software we produce as a team.
