    OUR TECHNICAL ENVIRONMENT

    Our engineering team is 100% remote with engineers based across the UK/EU. We favour open-source collaborative development, adopt the DevOps lifestyle and have a "you build it, you run it" mentality.

    Our tech stack: Go, AWS, Kubernetes, Docker, Terraform, TravisCI, Elasticsearch, CQRS, Postgres, Redis, Prometheus, Nginx, Consul, Linkerd, Kong, Vault, PagerDuty.

    We believe in the Unix philosophy of small composable modular architecture, which we automate full stack tests against. Every single piece of the platforms is managed using infrastructure as a code.

    We're recruiting 40-50 Senior Software Engineers in 2020, creating 1-2 new teams every quarter. Same trajectory in 2021 - so lots of opportunities for growth and getting your hands on the latest tech!

    WHAT IT’S LIKE TO WORK HERE

    Building greatness in a disruptive era requires strong ambition, talent, curiosity, diversity of thought and a belief that we’re better together. We want our employees to grow whilst with us so we’ve created an environment that encourages everyone to learn, challenge each other and create extraordinary experiences for themselves, their colleagues and our customers. We are continually on the lookout for talented people from all backgrounds that can further contribute to this amazing culture.

    WHY WE LOVE IT

    We're one of the best companies to work for when it comes to remote & flexible working!

    When we first started Form3, we hadn’t seriously considered the idea that we would grow to become a company where the majority of staff work from home 5 days a week. But when we looked at how we could best evolve as a rapidly expanding start-up, we realised that building a remote-first culture brought a huge number of benefits. In particular, as a company that is ultimately driven by our employees, allowing our staff to build their own personal environment, work from anywhere, and collaborate with the rest of the team on an equal footing, allows us to hire and work with a diverse group of some of the smartest people, no matter where they are based. Although we are only a hundred people strong, we already have staff from over 40 nationalities who are based in more than 14 countries. Remote and flexible working is now completely embedded in our culture. Our engineers typically work from home 100% of the time, while other team members work from home 50% or more. For some, this is about meeting life’s commitments, for others, it’s about being able to use remote/ flexible working to strike a great work-life balance. We want to be the most successful company for remote working and so are working hard to make this happen. We’ve been remote working for a while now and can put our success in this area down to three things in particular.
