Job Description

We are a team of highly experienced software engineers and hands-on coaches who move fast to solve our clients needs providing bespoke consultancy, training and pairing to upskill teams and deliver effective change.

Our aim is to identify the gaps in the client's engineering capability and then work to transfer our skills, knowledge and experience to their organisation providing repeatable patterns and behaviours to create sustainable change and build a culture of continuous improvement.

Armakuni is a test first and agile environment, with a keen focus on the quality of the software that we develop, and how we can support our Engineers to continue their learning and career journey.

About the role:

Our Software Engineers deliver cutting edge solutions which allow organisations to leverage technology and fully optimise their cloud journeys. You share our belief in development best practice, and will be given the opportunity to further hone and develop these skills in a practical manner.

We are advocates of crafting clean, well-written code using XP practices as part of a model that leans on concepts such as microservice architecture. When combined with a CI/CD culture that includes automated deployment, we work in a way that enables organisations to build, deploy and run the highest quality software, faster, with more confidence and less risk.


  • Your primary responsibility will be working alongside Armakuni colleagues and client engineering teams to deliver code-based solutions to a range of challenges, such as web-based applications, infrastructure-as-code and microservice architectures
  • Training and knowledge sharing with client Engineering and Development teams. You are evangelistic about development best practices, and enthused by the concept of transferring this to new teams as they enhance their capabilities further
  • Mentoring client engineering teams in the adoption of new tools, technologies, techniques, patterns and processes, ultimately helping leverage a range of tools and methodologies
  • Representing Armakuni and communicating our vision to client engineering teams, technical management and executives when required
