About Atellio

Atellio is the first platform designed to help creative teams scale content production, from brief to deliverable. Our SaaS product is used by leading fashion brands, tech unicorns and film studios, helping them all move away from a mishmash of spreadsheets and disparate tools, to a single unified workflow.

We’re a small, remote-first team spread across the UK, Europe and the USA, backed by leaders in the creative industry like ustwo and the ECD of Wieden & Kennedy.

Now is a great time to join Atellio if you’re looking for a role that will challenge and reward you in equal measure. We’re growing fast, have a great team and big plans for what comes next.

The Role

We're looking for a Backend Engineer to work on our core SaaS product. You’ll primarily be responsible for creating and updating services and endpoints, improving and expanding our deployment process and exploring the adoption of new technologies and enablers that could enhance our product.

You'll be comfortable offering your opinions on how an approach could be improved and identifying edge-cases that haven't been taken into account. You will have good understanding of architectural best practices and make recommendations on tools and technologies that could help us be more productive.

This role is right for you if you’re a mid-weight engineer looking to take more ownership, build new features and learn from a great team of experienced Go engineers.

  • You are comfortable working with Docker
  • Based in UK, or similar timezone (e.g. Portugal, Spain, Germany, France, Netherlands, Greece, Ireland etc.)
  • You are comfortable and productive working remotely

Bonus points for:

  • DevOps skills: Docker Swarm, Pulumi, Terraform
