Thousands of businesses use Geckoboard to build live TV Dashboards that focus teams on what matters. We take the complexity out of connecting data and make it simple for anyone to understand key metrics at a glance. We have pre-built integrations with 60+ tools including Google Analytics, Salesforce, Zendesk, Intercom and Google Sheets and our customers include Marketo, Slack, and Skyscanner.

We have been reimagining the way our customers get their data in Geckoboard and have a lot of interesting and creative work to do to shape their experiences. We’re looking curious problem solvers to help us on this journey.

Based from our London office, you'll be joining a friendly team with great people in an environment with empowered engineers, flexible working conditions, and a focus on skill development (see "Life at Geckoboard").

As one of our Backend (Golang) Developers:

You will help architect, design, and build Geckoboard’s future data pipeline.You’ll maintain and optimise our existing infrastructure and services.You’ll be writing in Golang on a day-to-day basis.You will be involved in the prioritising and evaluation of our work. You don’t need professional experience with the Go language and we're not expecting that you’ll have worked in all of these areas before. More than anything, we value people who are passionate about picking up new skills and sharing what they’ve learned with the rest of the team and a diversity of backgrounds.

If the idea of working on distributed systems at scale inheriting aspects of database theory in your solutions excites you, we’d love to hear from you.

Life at Geckoboard

We’re constantly striving to ensure that we offer the most encouraging, inclusive, and efficient environment possible.

We don't just pay lip service to work-life balance, we actively and strongly encourage it. Flexible working hours and the ability to regularly work from home lets you work in a way that fits you and your family. We see our contractual obligation to offer 25 days of paid holiday as a minimum for everyone in the organisation, not a limit.

We actively contribute to professional development, courses, conferences, and books. We also run fortnightly "Innovation Wednesdays", where everyone has complete freedom to work on anything that interests them, from contributing to open source, to learning a new skill, or improving our internal tools and processes.
