Careers

Backend Engineer

Risk Ledger is seeking software engineers to join our core team and take ownership in developing & shaping our platform that will improve the security maturity of the entire global supply chain. This is an opportunity to work with the latest technologies to solve an increasingly important problem, and to have an outsized impact on a product early in its lifecycle.

We are looking for an amazing and talented team from a diverse set of backgrounds and skillsets to help us grow and build a truly special company. The main focus of the role will be on backend development, but with opportunity to work up and down the stack. It’s all hands on deck at this stage, so you’ll need to be ready and willing to delve into the frontend, ship new functionality, and be involved in the product development, improving and learning as we go.

What you’ll be doing

  • Building our system’s backend, primarily in Go. If you’re a fast learner and keen to work with Go in production, we’d love to speak with you;
  • Getting your code, and that of the team, into production - hopefully continuously and bug-free by writing automated tests and engaging in peer code reviews.
  • Helping to expose the backend functionality in the frontend when necessary. The UI is built in HTML, CSS and JavaScript using Vue.js, so you should be willing to learn enough to understand how everything fits together and be happy to make improvements where appropriate.
  • Working closely with the customer success side of the company, to ensure that we’re always focused on and building what is right for our clients to make their lives easier, not just ours.

What success will look like

  • An awesome looking product, with the functionality our clients need.
  • A growing engineering team that people enjoy working with, who laugh together, know each other’s strengths and get the job done.
  • A rapidly expanding customer-base who are eager to use our product, keeping us on our toes when it comes to infrastructure and scaling.

About Risk Ledger

We’re a London-based startup with a mission of improving the way organisations approach cybersecurity and information management in the global supply chain. With over 60% of data breaches currently occurring through the supply chain, Risk Ledger provides the tools and knowledge that organisations need to increase their security maturity. Our platform changes the way that companies identify, measure and mitigate security risks for themselves and their suppliers, enabling them to truly understand their security landscape.

Risk Ledger is backed by multiple high-profile VCs, including Firstminute Capital, Seedcamp, Village Global and Episode1. Currently a small team, we’re looking to expand rapidly, and this is the perfect opportunity to put your stamp on a fun, fast-paced, early-stage startup.

We are currently based in White Collar Factory, next to Old Street roundabout.
