Posted on Wednesday, April 24, 2024

At Qwilr we're on a mission to revolutionise what proposals are capable of. This involves a highly technical platform, coupled with some seriously cool innovative engineering with some seriously awesome engineers.

Qwilr Engineering has transitioned over a decade of phenomenal pioneering - from the creation of monoliths, to dabbling with micro-services, all the while pursuing cloud-native distributed architecture designed to stand the test of time and to scale. We aggressively replace old technology along the way, but only when it makes sense.

If you want to make an outsized impact, learn world-class Cloud Engineering and work in a great culture that values your voice and your balanced perspective, we look forward to hearing from you. With your help, our best work is ahead of us!

About you:

  • You're talented, humble and empathetic.

  • You love teamwork. You enjoy collaborating with others, in and outside of engineering - working as one team to achieve a shared dream.

  • You can also work independently, to reliably deliver your part of the puzzle.

  • You're pragmatic in your approach to engineering problems, knowing there are always trade-offs and different times for different approaches - you strive to get stuff done.

  • You care about building and operating reliable, scalable, maintainable systems.

  • You care deeply about the overall customer experience.

  • You're always learning, keen to hone your craft and actively participate in team improvement.

  • You want to work on, and have a say in, a product that can meaningfully impact people's businesses, across the world.

About the Team:

The integrations team you’ll be working with initially (we like to grow expertise as well as ensure we have the ability to swarm where the effort is most needed, with careful and strategic consideration - we believe this gives you the chance to dive deep and learn, as well as spread your wings and tackle a broad array of technical challenges) owns shaping, building and operating our integrations and automations platform, working with cutting edge cloud technologies as well as some solid orchestration on the back end.

What you’ll do:

  • Collaboratively define and deliver systems roadmaps for Qwilr.

  • Shape, plan, build and operate Qwilr’s integrations and automations features.

  • Design and implement solutions with a depth of understanding / awareness of future architectural directions.

  • Be capable of solving complex technical challenges.

  • Iterate on development practices to constantly improve as a team.

  • Be aware, and seek understanding of project requirements and priorities.

  • Find a balance between quality and speed that delivers consistent results, aligning with Qwilr’s goals.

  • Work independently, with a strong bias for collaboration, helping to uplift your team and demonstrating an openness to growth.

Our Stack:

  • React, Nodejs, Javascript, Typescript

  • MongoDB, Druid

  • Kafka, AWS, Eventing, Terraform, Kubernetes

Research shows that while men apply to jobs when they meet an average of 60% of the criteria, women and other folks in minority groups tend to only apply when they check every box. So if you think you have what it takes, but don't necessarily meet every single point above, please still get in touch. We'd love to have a chat and see if you could be a great fit.
