Careers

Who we are

Arachnys is made up of smart, collaborative technical and industry experts.

Our core competency is harvesting data from the wild and helping customers use it to support better business decisions – about who to take on as a customer, which suppliers to use and who to hire.

Arachnys allows customers to search 23,000 corporate, news, social media and litigation sources – spread over 220 countries – in more than 90 languages.

Our approach is nimble and responsive, with close integration between marketing, sales and tech.

Why work for us?

In short, you get all the advantages of a startup (super fun teams, immediate impact, collaborative learning environment, greenfield projects, free snacks/ smoothies/ beers/ prosecco, and contribution to company strategy)…but with stability, predictability, and work-life balance that comes from steady growth 

Office location

Our London offices are located five minutes’ walk from Bank, with beautiful floor to ceiling views over the Thames. It’s a bright, airy space equipped with free snacks and drinks, showers, an awesome coffee machine and fresh towels, standing desks, and great people.

Our Stack

On the tech side, we work on hard but rewarding problems with advanced, performant technologies. We run our own distributed infrastructure with physical and virtualised servers located all over the globe, including a 100TB+ Hadoop cluster and a 10TB+ ElasticSearch cluster. Our services are deployed to AWS with Terraform and we make use of Docker and Kubernetes in production.

On the backend we use Python, Django, PostgreSQL and Redis. On the frontend we are using TypeScript, the latest version of JavaScript, React, Apollo GraphQL and even have our own Chrome extension.

We are contributors to open source, with our Cabot server monitoring tool starred over 4,500 times on GitHub and AthenaPDF, a PDF generation project in Go, over 1,000 times. We are constantly looking for opportunities to open-source more and more of our non-core tech.

We love to hear from people who have eclectic tastes in languages, but we have an established codebase in Python and React so we’d hope to hire people who are keen to do great work in those languages on a day-to-day basis.
