Creating a more diverse, equitable and inclusive Dojo

Dojo’s 150,000+ customers reflect the diversity of the UK High Street. Building teams with diverse backgrounds that are representative of the customer base which we serve is fundamental to creating innovative products at Dojo. Whoever you are, if you’re passionate about your work, curious, relentless and customer-obsessed, you have a place at Dojo.

We want everyone to be the best they can be throughout the recruitment process; if you require any additional adjustments please let us know.


Data powers decision-making across the business and underlies how Dojo understands and impacts the world. To that end we are building a state-of-the-art data platform, empowering domains and teams to manage and process their own data pipelines, providing the tools required to make an impact, quickly and at scale.

Joining an experienced team of data engineers you will assist our internal clients with their data integrations as well as help design, develop and maintain software solutions to common problems across the business.


What you will do:

  • Stakeholder Collaboration – you will partner with both technical and non-technical stakeholders to define, design, and implement new pipelines and features within our data platform.
  • Microservice ownership – you will develop expertise in all aspects of our data microservices from managing Kubernetes deployments to ensuring the highest standards of code quality and test-driven development.
  • Data Management – you will ensure we continue to deliver high-quality data to our customers with as low a latency as possible and Infrastructure Management – you will design, implement and own data infrastructure utilising Infrastructure-as-Code principles.
  • Kubernetes Deployment – you will help manage the complete life cycle of Kubernetes deployments using tools like ArgoCD and Helm.
  • Observability – you will proactively monitor the health of the Data Platform and its components using our Observability stack, which includes Grafana Cloud, Prometheus, AlertOps, PagerDuty, and more.


What you’ll bring:

  • Programming expertise – you are an experienced Python programmer who is as passionate about code quality as we are. You’re someone who treats unit tests as an integral part of the development process and always produces clean code that is an asset to the team.
  • An understanding of data – having previously worked within a data team you are familiar with cloud-based data warehouses such as BigQuery and Snowflake, as well as the principles of a modern data lake based on Apache Avro and Parquet.
  • Infrastructure-as-Code – you understand Infrastructure-as-Code principles and have experience with Terraform or similar. You are excited to work with Kubernetes, Helm, ArgoCD and related technologies.
  • Collaboration Skills – you have proven ability to work alongside a diverse set of stakeholders, ensuring alignment of technical solutions with business needs.
  • Experience with Big Data Technologies – you are familiar with technologies like Trino, Apache Flink or similar is valuable. You understand distributed computing principles and being able to work with large-scale data processing systems is a plus.
  • Familiarity with Cloud Platforms and Services – you are proficient in using cloud platforms like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), or Microsoft Azure for building scalable and reliable data solutions.

About Dojo

We launched Dojo in 2019 to address business owners’ pain points across the UK. Since then, we’ve seen incredible growth as a scaling fintech, welcoming over 150,000 customers and growing the Dojo team to 1,000+ people across five locations. In that time, we’ve also introduced Dojo Virtual Queues & Bookings and the Dojo restaurant finder app, formerly known as WalkUp and loved by 1,000 restaurants and 750,000 diners.

Today, we work towards our mission to empower businesses to thrive in the Experience Economy by creating the tools and technology that turn transactions into meaningful relationships. For our business customers, that means fast funding, the fastest payments, smart integrations, and efficient virtual queues & bookings – all with instant insight across the board. For diners, that means getting seated at their favourite restaurants with just a couple of taps on the Dojo app. Whether it’s for busy business owners or hungry diners, every Dojo product is built to address real customer pain points by our dedicated teams in London, Bristol, Hull and Belfast.

Our values

At Dojo, we’re curious. We have an insatiable desire to learn and innovate. And we’re relentless. We persevere even when it’s easier not to. But, we’re nothing without our customers, who drive everything we do. From day one, Dojo was built on real customer pain points and every one of us is customer-obsessed.

Our way of working

Dojo has adopted a set of shared principles with the aim of increasing in-person collaboration and amplifying our ‘Customer First’ values. We encourage our employees to meet in-person over virtual meetings, and our communication is mostly asynchronous. Unlike most other businesses, we are intentionally avoiding a rules-based approach, and each team is empowered to make the arrangements that work best for their success. The answer to every scenario which tests these principles is: We trust you to use your judgement responsibly, in the best interest of our customers.
