Senior Backend Engineers 🚀

What is Kiplot?

Kiplot enables large organisations to turn their strategy into reality.

Kiplot belongs to a new breed of enterprise software. Beautiful, visual, interactive, easy to use and endlessly configurable without the need for technical expertise or paid support. Our customers rave about the product and the business outcomes it drives for them. Now we’re focused on building more incredible features and getting more companies onboard to reap the benefits Kiplot provides.

We’re a start-up backed by a consortium of angel investors planning to raise Series A within 12 months. Despite being a young start-up, Kiplot's platform is already relied upon by some of the biggest and best known financial services companies in the UK and abroad.

We're a small and friendly team based in London but looking to grow significantly while keeping our fun but professional working environment.

About the role

We’re looking for passionate software craftspeople to help us take our platform to the next level and to more organisations. We’re united by a collective sense of pragmatism, purpose and a desire to continue to build a product that fundamentally changes the working lives of our customers.

From a technical perspective, it’s a very exciting time to join the company. We’re building a brand-new product, with the latest technologies, and you’ll be responsible for designing our backend architecture and laying robust, scalable foundations for the future.

Our tech stack:

Kiplot is a data intensive application that relies on an event driven architecture to deliver a dynamic, real-time experience to our users.

On the backend, Kiplot is built with ASP.NET Core in C# and NodeJS with Typescript.

Our platform makes use of patterns such as Event Sourcing and CQRS in a pragmatic fashion. All of this on top of PostgreSQL for persistence and making use of libraries such as Marten to do the heavy lifting.

Kiplot runs on AWS, leveraging technologies such as Docker, Kubernetes and Terraform to help deliver the end product to our clients.

On the frontend, we use Typescript, React and Redux to power the user interaction and D3 for the wow factor.

To ensure things work as expected, we use Jest, xUnit and TestCafe for automated testing and GitLab for continuous integration, source code and work management.

About you:

You will have a problem-solving mindset and an eagerness to see things through to the end. You’ll have a broad technical repertoire but with a focus and passion for scalable backend applications. You will:

      • Be confident leading backend development in ASP.NET Core applications
      • Have had responsibilities for designing and building end-to-end solutions against end user requirements
      • A passion for writing clean, efficient, reusable code
      • Ability and willingness to learn and adopt new languages and technologies
      • Enjoy working and collaborating with fellow colleagues (sometimes we pair and even swarm)

Company benefits
