    About Attest

    Welcome! We’re Attest: the Consumer Growth Platform. Our SaaS platform enables all consumer businesses to put data at the heart of decision-making, empowering them to drive predictive and repeatable growth. Our mission is quite simple: to put real consumers front and centre of every business.

    At Attest, we’ve simplified the exercise of gathering consumer intelligence so that our customers can spend more time understanding and taking action; making meaningful decisions faster and more often, to grow their businesses.

    2018 was a year of dramatic growth for Attest, with recurring revenues climbing 1,875%, and the Attest team more than doubling in size from 20 to over 50. The company's expanding client roster has added notable brands such as Heineken, Walgreens Boots, Samsung, Fever-Tree, Discovery and Transferwise. California-based NEA, one of the largest and most significant venture investors in the world, recently backed Attest with a $16m investment round in March 2019.

    Engineering at Attest

    Engineers join us for the technical challenges we overcome and stay for the incredible culture our Engineers create and grow, from talking at meetups such as the monthly 'London Microservices Meetup' (hosted and set up by our very own Technical Director) to contributing regularly to open source software (we're lucky to have the core contributor to Vue.js in our ranks). We work very closely with Product and Design in cross-functional squads, each of which has the autonomy to practice agile in the way that works best for them. If you haven't already, check out our video above to get a deeper insight into our people and company culture!

    Our Stack

    On the backend, our tech stack utilises some of the latest technologies, such as; grpc, linkerd2, Postgres and elasticsearch (to name just a few) all running on Kubernetes. We mainly code in go and java, and going forward we are focussing on building event sourced systems in go.
    Over on the frontend, we build out applications that use our REST and GraphQL APIs, written in Vue.js/React supported with TypeScript, and powered by Webpack.

    Context

    We believe great companies put consumers and data at the heart of every decision. These companies create better, more useful products and services, which leads to happier consumers and ever-greater success.

    That’s why at Attest we’re on a mission to bring every business closer to consumers, and empower them with the insights that drive predictable and repeatable growth.

    How? We call it a Consumer Growth Platform, where everyone can gain answers to their burning questions from audiences of over 100 million consumers across 80 markets.

    Our clients use Attest to learn more about their target consumers, enter new markets, build new categories, validate decisions, develop better products and services, measure their brand, track competition, all in with the goal of building new, predictable, and repeatable growth.

    Clients include Heineken, Walgreens Boots, Samsung, Fever-Tree, Discovery and Transferwise, Nutmeg, among many others. For additional information, visit www.askattest.com.

    Attest is backed by California-based NEA, one of the largest and most significant venture investors in the world, with over 225 portfolio company IPOs since 1977.

    How we interview & hire

    Our hiring process has four stages:

    1. 20 min phone call: you'll speak with one or two members of the team, we'll learn more about each other and you can ask any initial questions you have.

    2. Coding exercise: we'll send you a brief for a challenge we've designed to better understand your approach to front and back-end development. Don't worry it won't take up much of your time and gives you a chance to understand the sort of problems we try to solve here. It's a broad brief so you get a good chance to show off your skills.

    3. Come to our offices: we'll talk through your coding exercise, then we'll work on an architecture challenge (we're very interactive and love to whiteboard), discuss our vision and answer any questions you have. You'll meet the whole team and get a good feel for the business and atmosphere.

    We move quickly and make decisions with careful consideration, so we'll be able to create a formal offer quickly. As part of the offer process, we will ask you for contact details for at least two references.
