Memrise is an award-winning language learning system with a growing user base of over 50 million. By leveraging lots of brain science and plenty of humour, we’re striving to enrich people’s consciousness and help people achieve confident, real-world language skills in just a few short months.
Memrise has a small platform team that punches above its weight. We have great test coverage, deploy many times a day, and hardly ever get paged.
We’re looking for someone to help us provide better monitoring, logging, and alerting. We need your help measuring and improving performance on all our endpoints. You will need to make changes yourself, but also to help backend developers improve performance themselves by providing a combination of tooling and coaching. We have databases that we have wanted to upgrade for months, could you be the one that helps us actually do it?
This is an opportunity for someone to make the Memrise backend faster, cheaper, and easier to run, while building new capabilities for other engineers and the business, so together we can build a product that genuinely helps people understand and be understood by other people in a different language.
The platform team is a cross-functional team made up of infrastructure, backend, full stack, and data engineers. We ship incrementally, we learn all the time, and we regularly invest in making our jobs easier so we can do more to help the business and our learners.
Whether you are an SRE, in DevOps, or a backend engineer who cares about how their code runs in production, we are interested in talking to you.
Our team values empathy for the people we work with and the community we work for. We support each other. We are purposeful in our actions and effective at collaboration.
This position is open as a remote position to anyone in the UK. Though the team is mostly based in London, we are committed to building a sustainable remote-first culture.
