About the role

In the words of Dan, our Tech Director “For something to be simple to use it requires complexity somewhere else and we hide all that away from the agent and the tenant, Vouch just does it all for you”

If this sounds like something you might say then we could be a great match for you!

We are looking for an ambitious, passionate Senior C# Engineer to join our close team working on our award-winning platform and partner integration framework.

No two days are ever the same so what you’ll be up to will vary. The pace we move at also means priorities will change and you’ll need to be comfortable with this (we’ll support you!). But these are the things that will be core to your role and will keep you busy.

The day to day stuff:

  • Liaising with stakeholders and engineers you will build out new product feature sets and cloud services to help drive the platform forward.
  • Helping to build out a partner integration framework to allow us to grow our expanding list of 3rd party integrations.
  • Working reactively as issues arise and being able to resolve these in a timely manner
  • Communicating any issues/challenges with the relevant stakeholders within the business.

About you

You should apply if you have:

  • Commercial experience developing distributed applications in C# or Node
  • Strong working knowledge of databases (relational and NoSQL).
  • Familiarity with Github and Devops processes (CI/CD) and be able to write clean, easily maintained and testable code.
  • Working knowledge of Azure (preferable) or AWS cloud platforms and Docker
  • Proficient with advanced software engineering design and architecture principles, patterns and practices.
  • Strong knowledge of web application security and how to guard against common vulnerabilities.
  • Strong communication skills and can adapt to the technical level of your audience.
  • Focused on providing value, solving end-user problems and having a real impact on the organization.
  • Biased towards collaboration.
  • Open to learning new languages, technologies and ways of working.

You should also:

  • be comfortable taking concepts and ideas building out a work plan and executing that plan and working in an agile environment.
  • Have strong communication skills and be happy working as part of a team as well on individual tasks.

And it would be super great if you:

  • Have knowledge of PHP
  • know what it’s like to work in a young company and love the vibe (and sometimes chaos!)

ABOUT US

We started Goodlord because we wanted to make renting simple and transparent for everyone involved: the agent, landlord and tenant. We knew generation rent would lead to more tenants, with higher digital expectations and we were confident we could provide a solution.

And we did. Like all high growth companies it’s been a bit of a roller coaster journey, but we’re now stronger than ever, with over 2500 happy customers and exciting new products. We have ambitious plans but with William Reeve at the helm alongside co-founder Tom Mundy and a brilliant team of over 200 talented Goodlordians we are confident we’ll achieve these.

Our values guide our decisions, the way we work, our culture and the people we ask to join the team. We work hard, have fun and support each other. We’re not afraid to make mistakes (we’d never learn if we didn’t) and we’re always looking to challenge ourselves. Our style is collaboration based on honesty, friendship and respect.

And we’re proud to have been recognised as a Great Place to work. No one likes a show off, but we can’t not shout about this. We’ve worked hard to make Goodlord great, and it’s important you know this isn’t just words on paper; Goodlordians have validated this which has led to us being accredited:

The Interview Process typically looks like this

  • First, you will have a 45 minutes call with an engineer to go over some questions mostly related to your way of working and explore your experience in more detail. Do not expect tricky questions, the focus will be on finding out what you have done so far. This is your first chance to ask any questions about the role to someone who’s already in it.
  • If your experience and knowledge are relevant, you’ll be invited to either a Take home exercise followed by 75/90 minute virtual live interview to discuss exercise & work on a feature to demonstrate your skills. OR a virtual “face to face” interview consisting of a tech exercise to demonstrate your skills, this will be appx 2 hours. You’ll be joined by a couple of engineers who will assist you when stuck and will answer any questions you have about the exercise.
  • Finally, right after the technical interview, you’ll be speaking for about half an hour with two more people about our values. This is to ensure that this is an environment in which you will thrive - and who doesn't like talking about themselves right?
  • We will feedback to you within 24-48 hours.
  • For more information, Donovan, our CTO, has written a blog post that goes in-depth into our interview process: https://blog.goodlord.co/careers/how-goodlord-recruits-engineers.

    Goodlord wants applicants from all backgrounds and walks of life, we are an equal opportunity employer committed to creating an inclusive environment.

    In fact one of our core values is Bring our whole selves to work which is really important to us, if there is anything you need to participate fully in the interview process we'd like to hear about that too, please just include it in your application. Come join us!
