About the Role

YellowDog is hiring a back-end software engineer, working with Java and Python, to help develop our multi-cloud workload management platform.

This is about delivering sophisticated new product features for release to our state-of-the-art software service, to helps customers optimally schedule, deploy and manage their cloud compute.

We can help you get to grips with our technology, the domain and its ecosystems. Your work will have a positive resource-saving impact for our customers, currently across the life sciences, aerospace, financial services, media and entertainment sectors.

We’re a small and expanding software development team building a unique orchestration and service mesh solution. It’s a microservice-based architecture, where you may contribute substantial new code and ideas around any of the following; applications, distributed services, integration, systems, analytics and – optionally – the dashboard too.

Java is our main language, along with some Python for AI and analytics, and we can allocate projects that build upon your strengths, with mentoring and structure.

It’s a fairly flat team structure and we employ an iterative, lightweight design process where everyone on the team gets to give their input. We’re Agile and manage our work using a gentle Kanban process, with regular stand-ups and a productive approach to development.

Joining YellowDog, you can enjoy the right mix of autonomy and the ability to shape and influence your role.

 

Responsibilities

  • Building microservices that provide global compute coordination, resource scheduling, data management, adaptive data transfer, analytics, billing, access control etc.
  • Common abstraction to different cloud providers, optimised to best practice for each cloud provider.
  • Integration with a rich ecosystem of tools and adjacent systems.
  • Using our new compute platform to upgrade our large-scale CGI rendering application.
  • Developing intelligent predictive scheduling and resource management based on heuristics and machine learning.

 

Technical Requirements:

We’re looking for:

  • Someone ready to build upon formative skills accrued in industry, now exploring new engineering challenges.
  • Familiarity with Java – even if this hasn’t been your main language.
  • Understanding of – or strong appetite to learn – the inner workings of cloud applications, infrastructure, serverless etc.
  • Some exposure to any of the following; distributed applications, effective resource utilisation, concurrency, scheduling, or similar.
  • Appreciation of clean code, good documentation and knowledge sharing.
  • An individual who is adaptable, receptive to change and pragmatic.
