It’s important to question everything
…and here’s where we try to give you some answers.
Where are your offices located?
Our offices are typically found in the heart of the cities that we and our affiliates are based in. In Hong Kong, we’re in the Central district, close to restaurants, public transport and many convenient amenities.
What type of individuals do you hire?
We seek extraordinary people to help us create the technology of tomorrow: Problem solvers who thrive on challenges and take extreme ownership over what they produce.
What is the interview process like?
Regardless of the role you are applying for, the process is multi-stage and tests two aspects: Competency and core values.
For an engineer, the process might start with a simple CV review and phone screen. Depending on your experience, your next step might be a technical test before two rounds of assessment: A technical interview and pair programming with a senior engineer. Finally, a core values interview with one of our senior executives - to make sure your view of this beautiful planet aligns with ours.
What is the pay like?
We offer competitive salary packages, adjusted accordingly for experience and market conditions.
What are the perks of working at BGL?
We don’t have a ping pong table but we’ve got all the important areas covered including:
Comprehensive health insurance (for full-time employees)
Paid weekly team lunch
A fully stocked pantry with lots of healthy (and some not-so-healthy) snacks
Happy hour drinks
A great work culture that encourages personal growth
What technologies do you work with?
We work with some of the newest technologies available, as well as more established coding languages like Ruby, Python and Golang. Ultimately, we believe in using the right tool for the right job, and pride ourselves on our ability to acquire new technologies if it’s appropriate for what we’re trying to achieve.
Our services and tools run on Kubernetes (AWS, GCP) fully implementing the 3 pillars of observability: metrics, logging and tracing. Operations adopt SRE concepts, infrastructure observability services are based on Istio, Kiali, Prometheus, Grafana, Elasticsearch and Kibana. External service providers are used too, like Datadog and others as well as various cloud provider services like BigTable, BigQuery etc.
But what if I’m not familiar with the technologies you use?
Never fear, we have hired people who might be missing a specific skill set or aren’t familiar with coding languages we use. We’ll give you a go, as long as you can demonstrate your willingness and capacity to learn.
