AWS Serverless Guru

Backend Developer

Do you feel excited to build microservices and work with serverless, GraphQL and bleeding edge technology? Do you think it’s fun to be constantly challenged and have the freedom to experiment and be creative? If so, then Blanco is the right fit for you. We’re a scale-up that develops innovative solutions for Wealth & Asset Managers and we’re looking for the next rock-star to join our team.

What would you do?

Of course we need you to fully master Node.js, because that is what we use to write our Lambda functions. We use the full AWS Serverless stack (and even more) so we hope you will be comfortable using the API Gateway and configure the endpoints. Our workflow-heavy platform is supported by SQS and Step Functions to organise and orchestrate events. A solution architect certificate is not required, but if you used S3, Route53 and/​or CloudFront that would definitely help you get on top of the list.

Since we work with personal and financial data we need top-notch security so why not use API keys and Authorizers while we are at it. To manage our users we use AWS’s Cognito User Pools and Identity Pools to secure the API with temporary IAM credentials and permissions.

If you master this trick you probably also master NoSQL and DynamoDB does not have many secrets for you. Or maybe you can convince us to use Aurora for specific use cases? The team would love to hear of and learn from your experience in frameworks, we hope you also might convince us to use solutions you used in the past as well.

As our project grows, deployment becomes more important. You do not want to deploy all Lambda functions manually and define the endpoints one-by-one. that is why we want you to get introduced to the Serverless Framework. A set of tools to make deployments easier. So yeah, we want you to have some experience and knowledge on automatic integration and continuous deployment as well because that is just good development practice. We did say we need a Guru…
