Position: Junior Back-End Software Engineer

We’re looking to hire a junior back-end developer to help us build Adnuntius Advertising — an advertising management and delivery system that serves customers the world over and handles billions of requests each month. Our system is primarily built using Java and deployed to bare-metal servers running in multiple data centres distributed around the globe. 

We need someone who is self-­directed, can receive general guidance about what needs to be done and take responsibility over making it happen. Our team structure is almost completely flat — we are all developers, with no team or dev leads; no project managers or business analysts; and no architects. 

As a junior developer, you would be given guidance to implement a feature and you would work out how best to achieve the objectives while leaning upon the expertise of your more experienced co-workers. You’ll get a wide education in building robust, maintainable software in a friendly environment.

Current Tech Stack

  • Java for application development
  • Kafka for messaging
  • PostgreSQL for relational databases
  • Python for quick tooling, scripting and testing
  • Elastic for search
  • Gradle for build scripts
  • Guice for dependency injection
  • Consul for configuration management and service discovery
  • Prometheus for gathering, storing and alerting upon application metrics
  • Grafana for monitoring and visualisation of system performance
  • HAProxy for load balancing
  • Nginx for web serving and reverse proxying
  • Ansible for automating machine management and deployments
  • Linux for development and hosting
  • Git for version control
  • GitLab for continuous integration and code review

Ideally, we are looking for candidates whose interests lie in back-end technologies, but not necessarily with any direct experience with any one piece of technology that we currently use.

General Perks of Working with Adnuntius

  • 5 weeks of annual leave
  • Flexible working arrangements
  • Opportunity to work from home
  • Ability to salary sacrifice one laptop and phone each year
  • No standard development machine:
    • we will supply you with a machine, but you can also work from your own machine if you prefer
    • you can install your OS of choice and manage your own machine

Areas We Can Improve Upon

  • No in-house barista, although unlimited do-it-yourself coffee is available
  • Beer is not provided from Monday to Thursday (inclusive)
