We are looking for agile software engineers with passion and energy, a strong desire to learn and improve and a commitment to testing and excellence. You'll have to make tough decisions, implement best practice and provide compromises when situations are not ideal. Oh and you'll need to explain that to people. Not just the technical ones. Because we work in product teams where not everyone is a techie. It's fun, you get closer to the business and know more about why we do what we do, not just how.
Our core technologies are React & Java, but (because we're a bit old-skool) we prefer our engineers to be full-stack devs. Coding is coding and the main difference is syntax – right? So were looking for passionate programmers who are comfortable with using a variety of frameworks, languages & tools and who are happy to pick up new skills when the need arises. We know that you will have a go-to language where you can spin up & deploy new applications in a few minutes and where your expertise shines through, but don't be shy about picking up a new skills and knocking out some killer code.
The quality and maintainability of our software is very important for us, we are looking for engineers with real world experience of building and running contemporary software, especially in terms of the whole development lifecycle. You will help us to design and implement tightly focussed APIs, user interfaces , services that internalise our core business logic or internal tools and, together with your team, you will support them in production. We want you to share your opinions on how we are doing things – and help us get better!
