Back-end developer (Go)

We are looking for an accomplished Go developer to take primary responsibility for the maintenance of a small number of backend components within the Exivity cloud billing solution and to become a key member of the backend development team.

This role also entails being involved in the design, implementation and maintenance of additional components going forwards.

Our company culture allows for flexible working hours and a large degree of self-management so things like starting later in the day, working from home.

You’ll be working closely with our lead backend C developer, sharing your knowledge and experience of Go to assist them and others to learn and improve their abilities with the language.
