We are looking for a Chief Architect to join our Engineering team
The world is changing. We all want something different.
At Luno, we see you as an individual, and we want to unleash your potential and empower you to become the best possible version of yourself.
Luno welcomes crypto lovers and crypto newbies. You - just like everyone in the world - are on your own unique crypto-learning journey.
We are a mission-driven cryptocurrency company that is building more open and equal access to the future of money. You don’t have to know lots about crypto to be interested in joining us, you just have to feel that upgrading the world to a fairer financial system matters, and that you’d like to be part of this global change. We’re a passionate and committed team taking on a challenge of epic proportions. Like the first moon landing, it requires a special kind of people working together with unusual skill, focus and determination. We need the best team on board for our mission.
If that sounds like a culture you’d thrive in, then we are excited to hear from you.
Luno offers a "Remote but Reachable" working approach. Please check out the details HERE
Our engineering team (currently ~100 engineers) is split into organisations which we call Fleets. Each Fleet focuses on a core customer journey (onboarding, security, payments, support, new business, growth and marketing etc.). Each of these fleets contains multiple smaller teams called Pods, each of which focuses on a specific aspect of the product.
Pods will include a product owner, product designer, back-end engineers, Android, iOS and Web developers, who each bring a unique perspective to the problem you are all contributing towards.
We're agile, use scrum, continuous integration and continuous delivery, deploying to production every single day.
We're building teams to help us succeed in our mission to upgrade the world to a better financial system. You’ll be joining a group of highly motivated software engineers who you’ll work collaboratively with across our pods.
As a fast-growing company with offices around the world, you’ll immediately see how your contributions directly impact both our internal users and client experience. Many of the problems we are solving result in trail blazing solutions which can’t be found on Stack Overflow; so we’re looking for engineers who flourish working in a complex domain.
...begin your journey at Luno by learning our processes, meeting the wider team, and starting our onboarding program. You’ll join the Engineering Leadership team meetings and start to understand our objectives and OKRs, and the challenges that we have to rise to in order to deliver against them.
We’re entering our next phase of growth on our mission to bring crypto to the global mass consumer market. That means we know that we have big, complex (and exciting!) architectural challenges ahead of us, so we need you to take a seat on the Engineering Leadership Team and partner with Engineering Directors, Staff Engineers, and wider to help us navigate the best possible path for our customers and our business. Your path will involve;
We’re looking for someone that is in touch with the technology, that likely can still write code occasionally, that knows the difference between Kafka, Kubernetes, Kotlin, and Queuing, and can find their way around large distributed microservice platforms (preferably written in golang), ensuring 100ms P99 latencies, event driven architecture, big data analytics (billion+ new rows per day), and large online application data tables (more than billion rows). If that sounds like you, and you have architected systems at consumer-facing internet-scale before, we want to speak to you.
Don’t be put off if you don’t tick all of the boxes – they’re a guide based on what we’d love to see but we appreciate that excellent software engineers have diverse backgrounds.
If you’re looking to work on something truly global and disruptive with a forward-thinking and ambitious team that highly values diversity, teamwork, and the continuous quest for excellence, then this is an opportunity for you.
Like the majority of the companies, Luno is currently working remotely to keep our employees safe, which means you will not be physically, but virtually onboarded for now!
We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status. You'll need to hold the legal right to work in the UK already as we cannot provide visa sponsorship.
Be part of the change! 🚀
