Software Engineer – React, Node.js, AWS, Serverless
What does an Engineer do here?
Engineers are at the core of what we do at Mission Labs. As well as making some killer React apps, our clients also count on us for our backend chops – so whatever your forte is, we'd love to chat!
Whether that’s using Kinesis streams, lambdas & elastic search clusters to build data pipelines that process and store data from tens of thousands of live calls every day; or harnessing the power of Serverless, API-Gateway and Lambda to build lightning-fast, scalable APIs to power our front-end apps, we’re the team that delivers the core functionality that users love, rely on & use on the daily.
We’re an AWS Advanced Consulting Partner and leverage a tonne of services from the AWS ecosystem. Some say we’re bezzies with Bezos – but we don’t like to brag’ Ultimately, we just think servers suck and prefer to deploy huge chunks of cloud infra in minutes not months – HBU?
Our technology stack is:
- AWS Services – Lambda, API-Gateway, DynamoDB, CloudFront
- Athena, Kendra, Redis
- Serverless, Cloudformation
What do our products actually do?
Looking back over the last twelve months the team have achieved some pretty incredible things. When COVID-19 first crippled the nation, we built an intelligent IVR that helped Sainsbury’s identify, prioritize & assist their most vulnerable customers.
Since then, we’ve implemented cloud solutions across the public sector; from enabling people to organise their council tax, and access emergency government funding, to helping people travelling by train plan their journeys more accurately with rescheduled timetables, E-tickets and intelligent seat reservations.
–> Helping people is a big part of what we do – and we like that.
