Backend Software Engineer - C++

I am currently looking for talented backend software engineer to work in a technical team based in central London. The role allows for occasional working from home but principally looking for somebody to work in London. The teams goal is creating new platforms exposing RESTful services to the IoE/M2M industry

On a day to day basis you will be creating high performance platforms for internal and external use exposed in a RESTful fashion and backed by large SQL data stores.

Required Skills and Experience:

- You already master a few programming languages, or easily find your way around a new one. The companies stack is mostly Go, but when there are better tools implemented in different languages, we do not hesitate to use and improve them.
- You have a solid C/C++ foundation. We appreciate high level languages that avoid heaps of boilerplate code, but at the same time we need to know what goes on under the hood, and so should you.
- You have a high performance systems background - content delivery, trading, networking, e-commerce, ticketing, etc. Everything we build has hard performance requirements. Relying entirely on the language/framework for optimisation is a luxury we do not have.
