On behalf of Just Eat, Ciklum is looking for a Senior/Lead .NET Engineer for our team in Kyiv on full-time basis.
This engineering opportunity is in the Growth team which is responsible for developing and testing new ideas to help customers using Just Eat, as well as developing and managing tools to help market Just Eat to the world. The ideas tend to touch a variety of stakeholder groups (internal customers, consumers and restaurant partners). You’ll be part of the team that helps drive best practice throughout the area.
The Growth team is responsible for a number of consumer, business and internal facing applications to support Just Eat’s marketing teams around the globe and drive orders through the most popular takeaway ordering platform in the world.
Using a variety of technologies, the team works very closely with other technology teams to deliver numerous applications of varying size, from blogs to tools that manage multi-million pound advertising spend & interface with key partners including Google, Facebook, Salesforce & Microsoft, to stakeholders at all levels of the business.
Every member of the Technology Team is responsible for:
- The availability, security, scalability of our e-commerce platform
- Delivering our product roadmap
- Planning for the future
We don’t divide responsibility for development and operation of our platform, so you and your team will support the changes you make all the way through to operating successfully in production at peak times.
Our product development teams are growing because we have a huge number of ideas of how to improve the experience customers and restaurants have. As a Senior Engineer you will need to play a key role in turning those ideas into reality. You’ll need to:
- Track the progress that you are making towards the wider goals of your team, and transparently communicate that progress to your team and Technology Manager.
- Keep to the processes, standards and designs that your team has agreed.
- Ensure you and others continuously improve by proposing and then implementing new processes, designs and engineering practices that make your team more effective.
- Contribute to the definition of product features, including in workshops with other product development teams.
- Communicate the technical work of your team to other product development teams.
- Take responsibility for supporting your changes all the way through to proving that they work well – and continue to work well – in production.
If you are a Senior Engineer, we also expect that you:
- Will become a trusted technical authority and specialist in one or more technical areas of your team. You’ll be someone the rest of the team and your Technology Manager can turn to for engineering advice and guidance.
- Collaborate with other product development teams and use their feedback as a basis for improvements.
- Write technically sound, clean, maintainable code – with practical application of established patterns and practices.
- Web API Development
- SQL Server, MySQL or PostgreSQL, DynamoDB
What's in it for you
- We’ll believe and trust in you and your abilities. So you and your team will have the authority to make the technical decisions you need to meet your responsibilities to the rest of the platform and company.
- An environment in which good, evidence-based arguments are always listened to, and will win out.
- Regular 1-to-1 meetings with your manager, with support and guidance to set and then meet personal career objectives.
- An open, friendly and fun environment; we have a relaxed dress code and regular social events.
- Regular hackathons – use your imagination, ideas and technologies of your choice to innovate and deliver prototypes of new products.
