Team Kraken is part of the Office of the CTO at Beamery. The team works to accelerate delivery and innovation at Beamery by tackling complex projects at an early stage. As evangelists and thought leaders for technology, we also assess and evaluate cutting edge technologies, frameworks and ways of working. Work in Team Kraken is varied, so there is always something new and exciting to learn and understand. Recently we’ve built a server-side-rendered app to enable a phased rollout of self-serve reporting to customers, we’ve architected and demonstrated a migration pathway for identity management and we’ve iterated on the design and features of our internal-facing browser extension, the “Beamery Hub” to help our colleagues keep up to date.

Beamery is a hive buzzing with excitement! We are one of the fastest-growing tech companies in the UK and London's top HR tech startup , disrupting recruitment with our Talent Operating System and building the world's smartest Talent Data Platform driving intelligence, insights and innovation around candidates, skillsets, diversity and more. Our customers include renowned brands (Nasdaq, AstraZeneca, Zoom, Zalando, Grab), undisclosed names (some of the world's largest organizations!) and many more coming on board in 2023!

Our team includes alumni from Spotify, PayPal, NVIDIA, DAZN, ORACLE, Starling Bank, etc. and everyone at Beamery brings something special. You could be just what we need. We seek and welcome people from diverse backgrounds who bring with them a variety of work and life experiences. We recognise there’s a lot of work to be done and we’re constantly looking for ways to bridge the diversity gap. We believe Beamery and the tech industry as a whole can only gain by providing opportunities to underrepresented groups and elevating their perspectives so that our culture, products and relationships are sensitive, inclusive and well-rounded.

Our tech stack includes Node.js, React, Golang, Kubernetes, GCP, Google Cloud Functions, Kafka, MongoDB, Istio, Terraform, etc. We believe in empowering teams to be autonomous and self-led to address our many interesting and meaty technical and organizational challenges.

People have joined Beamery for a variety of reasons: because of the category-defining product and the opportunity to disrupt how companies hire, because of the challenges and thrill of working in a fast-growing company while building out our engineering culture, or quite commonly because of the people they met in the hiring process and just resonated with.

Some of the things we’re working on this year include...

  • Using artificial intelligence and a knowledge graph so recruiters can find the right candidates with the right skills faster

  • Enabling data-informed talent transformation via dashboards that provide  deep insights into efficiencies and bottlenecks in recruitment workflows

  • Going from candidate-centric external recruitment to employee-centric internal mobility to help companies retain talent through internal opportunities

  • Leveraging our Talent Data Platform to integrate with partners and enable them to use our refined enriched data to help our customers’ workflows, cementing Beamery’s place at the centre of the talent software ecosystem
