Join the fastest growing rental marketplace in the world. Backed and advised by world-class investors, Fat Lama is a sharing platform which enables anyone to rent anything to and from others nearby.

Technology is at the heart of everything we do at Fat Lama, allowing us to solve a problem that has never been solved before. Our whole team gets a say in the product & tech roadmap, and our engineering team takes pride in writing, testing and deploying new features on a daily basis.

As an engineer at Fat Lama, you’ll be responsible for crafting, building and running the software which underpins our marketplace. We’re looking for somebody that can deliver solid engineering whilst moving at the same speed as our constantly growing business. You should also be excited about helping shape the direction and culture of our engineering team going forward.

Are you excited by the prospect of learning new technologies? As engineer number 5, you’ll be required to wear many different hats. Whether it be designing scalable systems, building tools to help our Operations team keep the business running, or slicing and dicing data for our analytics dashboards, you should welcome the challenge. You should thrive in a constantly changing environment and enjoy learning new things at a fast pace.

Our team takes pride in owning our work truly end-to-end. We’re looking for people who can plan, experiment, build, test, deploy, measure and iterate before calling it done. As a small team, we try and build on the shoulders of giants, which means that you’ll often find us working with the latest and greatest technologies.

You might be a good fit for the role if you:

- Want to work in a team that values teamwork, learning and collaboration.

- Love writing clean, elegant code that other people can read.

- Have an understanding of at least two programming languages or paradigms.

- Are familiar with building web services and APIs.

- Take pride in your fastidious approach to testing your code.

- Have a real passion for user experience. Every. Lama. Counts.

We would be thrilled if you also had:

- Experience building distributed systems or microservices.

- Android, iOS or React Native work under your belt.

- A deep understanding of JavaScript or Golang.

- Experience working with and launching cloud-based services.

If you don’t feel like you fit all of these areas, don’t worry. We are dedicated to the development of our team. Whether you’re a computer science graduate, an artist or a bricklayer, as long as you’re also a programmer, we’d love to hear from you.
