At Cutover, we’re focused on helping Enterprise teams move quickly with confidence, so we’ve built the world’s first enterprise-wide work orchestration and observability platform that enables seamless human and machine collaboration. We’ve just announced a $35 million Series B financing round led by Eldridge (alongside existing investors Index Ventures, Sussex Place Ventures, and Contour Ventures) and we’re thrilled to be embarking on our next exciting chapters of growth.

We’re scaling our Technology organization in a big way in 2021 and we’re super keen to bring some more folks skilled in Ruby/Rails into our core platform team. We’d love to find a talented, passionate, team-focused engineer who is excited to take responsibility for a broad array of our future technology plans.

What we’d like you to bring to the table…

  • You’re likely a passionate Ruby/Rails/JS engineer who’s excited to work for a modern SaaS business.
  • You’re excited about bringing extra layers of shine and polish to products; you’re rigorous in the way you test features and you’re committed to making the product you’re building the best it can be.
  • You’re both a mentor and a lifelong-learner at heart: you always have time to chat things through with junior engineers and interns, you want to throw ideas around with your team-mates, and you’re always keen to hear new opinions and up skill in new technologies.
  • You have a desire to be more “commercial” than the average SaaS company engineer: we want our engineers to get involved with client-facing work and problem-solving on occasion (it makes sense to know how people are using the platform we’ve built, right?)
  • You love striving to continuously improve your craft, and appreciate our values of empathy, curiosity, and learning.
  • What will your adventure here look like?
  • As part of our orchestration team you will be helping us to take care of incident response within our platform, looking to make sure response teams and orchestrators can mobilise, plan and execute concurrently in real-time.
  • Being our subject matter expert on Ruby on Rails and its software patterns.
  • Encouraging and readily giving and receiving feedback to help your team, manager, and wider stakeholders.
  • Working cross-functionally with product and design to discover and build solutions that are scalable and performant.
  • Prioritising best practices, keeping everything you do up-to-date, secure and compliant by default; recommending approaches, and providing timeline estimates.
  • Developing a deep understanding of our product and its customer base.
  • Forging the next step in your career journey, taking advantage of every learning opportunity that comes along!

The good stuff…

  • You’ll be given a solid compensation plan, with share options included.
  • You’ll have a strong benefits plan: 25 days of PTO (+ bank holidays), a top-tier private health insurance package, a 5% pension contribution, a learning and development allowance, and all the company swag you could ever need.
  • We believe in a flexible, autonomous way of working. We provide work from home stipends, and we have built a trusting environment together: do great work, and build an office+home schedule that suits your scenario.
  • You’ll get to learn from some pretty cool people across Cutover’s global business - we have an incredibly diverse array of leaders here, and you’ll benefit from hundreds(!) of cumulative years of top-tier experience on your doorstep.
  • You’ll be part of an early stage, rapidly scaling Technology Organization with a meritocratic approach: we want to promote and retain our top performers.
  • Safeguarding the mental health of our teams is paramount for us. If you’d like to, then you’ll be able to avail of multiple Cutover mental health initiatives, from fully subsidized therapy sessions, through to subscriptions to leading wellbeing platforms (and lots more in between)

Interviewing with us

Through our interview process, we aim for you to hear more about the challenges we work on and the problems we look to solve; to give you a great experience while meeting our team; and to ensure you leave with a good understanding of life here at Cutover!

Over three steps via Zoom, you’ll be meeting a member of our People team, future teammates, and two of our senior leadership team in engineering. We’re not fans of take-home exercises and we won’t ask you to spend any time outside of interviews on this.
