Primer is an early-stage startup with backing from Europe's leading fintech investors (early stage investors in Revolut, TransferWise, Monese, UiPath). We're on a mission to help online merchants power the best commerce experiences in the world (we know, it won't be easy).

We believe the very best functionality comes as a result of deep technical insights led by engineering. We're not just building a product, we're building a company.

We're looking for super ambitious, product-centric folks to form our core engineering team as we build and scale our platform globally. This is an opportunity to join a well funded startup in its early days, to influence product decisions and shape our technical architecture.

Responsibilities:

  • Build our internal and public-facing APIs - and strive to deliver awesome developer experiences
  • Work directly with the Head of Product and Engineering to translate functional objectives into technical execution
  • Play a key role in establishing our technical roadmap inline with our launch objectives and delivery of our MVP
  • This is a Greenfield project where you will grow our stack using the best tools for the job
  • Establish a highly available infrastructure optimised for global reach
  • Establish a strong, customer-centric engineering culture of problem-solving, continuous improvement and always asking "why?"

Desired Experience:

  • Have experience securing highly sensitive data
  • Experience implementing serverless architectures and technologies (and generally managing high throughput traffic)
  • Have strong experience implementing service-oriented architectures
  • Have experience with a variety of cloud-services and container orchestration tools and systems (AWS, Azure, Docker, K8S)
  • We're building our initial API implementation in Python, but our stack's growing day by day :)

Benefits:

  • Greenfield project where the best ideas win out
  • Early stage share options
  • Set, execute and take ownership of our technology strategy
