Our Tech Stack
At Octopus Labs we’re building everything a suite of micro-services. We have two teams. One is building micro-services in Python, running on Tornado and hosted on Kubernetes in Google Cloud. The other team, dealing with decommissioning of legacy systems, is building micro-services in .Net core on Azure. Our front-end developers use React. All backend teams use MySQL databases. Jenkins for our deployment pipeline and Sentry for exception reporting. We are integrating everything, from our own micro-services to third-party tools, into Slack.
- You will be a key part of a small team that will build very high volume FinTech platforms from the ground up.
- Flexible working hours.
- Stunning office.
- Salary (tell us what you are worth) + benefits.

We're ideally looking for a candidate who can work from our offices in London, but are willing to consider:
- Someone in the commuter belt who would come in to the office 2-3 days per week, and work from home the remainder of the time.
- Send a brief cover letter and a CV.
Random acts of kindness make the workplace a better place. So, go out of your way to be helpful, and give people reasons to smile.
Be straightforward Life is complicated enough. Don’t make it harder for yourself, or for others. Sometimes the simplest approach works wonders.
Be bold Every great business started with a flash of inspiration. If you’ve got a great idea, don’t keep it to yourself.
At Octopus, we recognise the importance of embracing diversity in order to create a high performance culture.
