About the job

The Technical Platform Teams provide the foundations for the structure and operations of the entire Allegro platform. This is where we build tools, development and infrastructure stacks and automation systems used by more than a hundred Allegro product teams and by the customer support department. We develop the full stack, starting from our own server room and private cloud, through containerization, mobile apps and application software to tools which offer AI support to our customers. At the same time, we are responsible for the performance, availability and security of the entire platform.

Our team is responsible for service to service communication. Our Service Mesh proxies 2 million RPS. We are using Consul for Service Discovery and Envoy + in-house control plane for Service Mesh. We are planning to migrate to Istio.

By joining us, you will have a real impact on the infrastructure at Allegro. You will design and implement highly scalable distributed solutions to facilitate business teams.

We are looking for people who:

  • Are familiar with Go language (must have)
  • Who have commercial experience in Java or any high level language (very good knowledge required)
  • Expect work that has a deeper meaning (not only tasks "management has commissioned") and want to enjoy its results
  • Want to be proud of the code they create. They eagerly accept comments and share knowledge during code reviews
  • Can look for effective solutions to the requirements set by users
  • Want to constantly develop and update their knowledge
  • Know English at B2 level (communication in the team is in English)

Nice to have:

  • Practical experience building infrastructure on a cloud provider (GCP preferred) and/or on bare metal
  • Good knowledge of Kubernetes, Istio or any other service mesh

Additionally, we offer

  • A hybrid work model that you will agree on with your leader and the team. We have well-located offices (with fully equipped kitchens and bicycle parking facilities) and excellent working tools (height-adjustable desks, interactive conference rooms)
  • Annual bonus up to 10% of the annual salary gross (depending on your annual assessment and the company's results)
  • A wide selection of fringe benefits in a cafeteria plan – you choose what you like (e.g. medical, sports or lunch packages, insurance, purchase vouchers)
  • English classes that we pay for related to the specific nature of your job
  • 16" or 14" MacBook Pro with M1 processor and, 32GB RAM or a corresponding Dell with Windows (if you don’t like Macs) and other gadgets that you may need
  • Working in a team you can always count on — we have on board top-class specialists and experts in their areas of expertise
  • A high degree of autonomy in terms of organizing your team’s work; we encourage you to develop continuously and try out new things
  • Hackathons, team tourism, training budget and an internal educational platform, MindUp (including training courses on work organization, means of communications, motivation to work and various technologies and subject-matter issues)

Why is it worth working with us?

  • The IT team is made up of over 1700 members who have shared their knowledge at multiple conferences, such as DevDays or Devoxx, and co-create a blog:
  • Microservices – a few thousand microservices and 1.8m+ rps on our business data bus
  • We practice Code Review, Continuous Integration, Scrum/Kanban, Domain Driven Design, Test Driven Development, Pair Programming, depending on the team
  • Our internal ecosystem is based on self-service and widely used tools, such as Kubernetes, Docker, Consul, GitHub or GitHub Actions. This will allow you, from day one, to develop software using any language, architecture and scale, restricted only by your creativity and imagination. 
  • To match the scale, we also focus on building entire Platforms of tools and technologies that accelerate and facilitate day-to-day development, and we ensure the best Developer Experience to our teams
  • Technological autonomy: you get to choose which technology solves the problem at hand (no need for management’s consent). You are responsible for what you create
  • Our deployment environment combines private Data Centers (tens of thousands of servers) and Public Clouds (Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure)
  • Over 100 original open source projects and a few thousand stars on github
  • We organize Allegro Tech Live event, a 100% remote version of our offline Allegro Tech Talks meetups, and we make guest appearances at the invitation of such communities as Warsaw AI, JUG (Poznań, Łódź, Lublin, Wrocław), WG .Net, Dare IT, Women in Tech Summit
  • We focus on development as well. We organize hackathons and internal conferences (e.g. the annual Allegro Tech Meeting), our employees regularly participate in events both in Poland and abroad (Europe and USA), and each team has its own budget for training and study aids. If you want to keep growing and share your knowledge, we will always support you
