In sum, Plentific is a technology-led business developing cutting-edge solutions - and that’s only possible to do with a great team. Our culture is open, empowering and fast-paced. If you’re tenacious, passionate and driven, you will fit right in.
We’re looking for a scrum master to join the engineering team. You’ll be working alongside a highly technical and motivated team and report to a senior Scrum Master or CTO. You will help our numerous cross-functional engineering teams using Agile methodologies such as Scrum/Kanban. Our engineers are split across our London and Ankara offices as well as remote members. You'll be a vital cog in the future of Plentific as we strive to use best-practice and maintain our own high standards as we expand the team. We currently have and will continue to have an environment that allows our engineering teams to be the best they can be in order to offer a platform unrivalled by others.
The engineering team sits at the centre of everything we do at Plentific and is constantly tackling challenging problems, such as online payments, quoting, invoicing, booking, search / scoring algorithms, ETL, data pipelines, in-app messaging, real-time notifications and fraud prevention. Our backend engineers mostly work with Python and Django on an increasingly more service-oriented architecture. The rest of the tech stack include Django REST Framework, PostgreSQL, PostGIS, AWS, ES6, React.js, Alt.js, Node.js, Express, Amazon Redshift, Kubernetes, Docker, Redis, Celery, Pandas, Numpy, Scrapy, Git with Zenhub, Jenkins, Elasticsearch, Logstash and lots of raw SQL for analytics. We have a very large but clean code base as we put significant emphasis on design patterns, code readability, testability, maintainability and extendability.
You will be working from our established Ankara office and be part of a distributed team of engineers working from the UK and Europe in addition to Turkey. There will be plenty of opportunities to travel and collaborate face to face.
