Luno is a leading global cryptocurrency company operating across more than 40 countries and with offices in London, Singapore and Cape Town. We’re Series B-funded and backed by some of the top tech investors in the world.
Our products and services make it safe and easy for people and businesses to store, buy, use and learn about cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum. Our vision is to upgrade the world to a better financial system.
How we work
Our engineering team (currently >90 engineers) is split into organisations which we call Fleets. Each Fleet focuses on a core area of our product (consumer applications, business operations, new business, growth and marketing etc.). Each Fleet contains multiple smaller teams called Pods, each of which focuses on a specific aspect of that product.
A pod will include a product owner, back-end engineers, Android and iOS developers, and web developers who each bring a unique perspective to the problem you are all contributing towards. Engineering Managers at Luno take ownership and manage at Fleet-level.
We're agile, use continuous integration and continuous delivery, deploying to production every single day.
What you'll do
Your first 90 days
You will start by flying to Cape Town for two weeks to learn our processes, meet the wider team and start our engineering on-boarding program. After getting comfortable with the basics, you'll start learning our idiomatic patterns in a safe, easy-to-follow way - by building your own toy micro services. You'll get to practice how we do design docs, code reviews, deployments, events, logging and monitoring.
You’ll meet the Pods you’ll be leading and quickly align on the teams’ current OKRs and product roadmap. We succeed as a team, so we will provide you with regular feedback from your manager (Engineering Director) and peers (we currently have four Engineering Managers) and will encourage you to do the same.
