Location: London, South Bank - WeWork

Position Type: Full-time & Permanent

What is Akoova?

Akoova provides K-Hosting, a managed cloud hosting platform for online retailers running on Magento, such as Graze, Time Out, O'Neills, Piazza Italia, Byredo, Swoon Editions and Dover Street Market.

The core of everything we do is based on Respect for People. We don’t show respect by empowering people and letting them get on with their job. We show respect by challenging each one of us every step of the way.

What is your opportunity?

As one of the early team members, you will participate in the evolution and management of the Akoova platform (K-Hosting) where you’ll find many opportunities to apply and refine your operations and development skills.

Nothing you do will go to waste. If something doesn’t work out, we learn from it. If it does, it will quickly find its way to production. Part of the challenge is to move quickly without breaking things, and you’ll help to build the tools and processes to keep that a reality. Building on AWS means we can rapidly evolve the platform that we’re constantly improving.

You will help Akoova redefine what online retailers should expect from their hosting partner.


You'll be:

About you.



Although we expect that most applicants will have a background in system administration, we encourage operationally-minded developers to apply, we are building a platform!

The hiring process

Initially you will have a telephone conversation with Zac, co-founder and Chief Architect of Akoova, to make sure there is a fit both ways. You will then be interviewed by some team members and the two co-founders. We see this as a two-way process; we will put you through your technical paces to ensure we are happy with your skills as well as to ensure you are happy with the role's challenges, the purpose of the company and what we are trying to achieve. We will also take you out for lunch or drinks (your choice), allowing us to get to know each other a little more in a more relaxed environment. We will be looking for fit at different levels: cultural, attitude, skills and abilities.


Please DO NOT apply unless you are already in the UK, or able to confirm that you are relocating here. This is an on-site position and working remotely most of the time is not an option. Unfortunately we are unable to offer work permit assistance at this stage.
