We’re looking for a creative developer to join our mission to change people’s lives with tech.
If you're thinking you're not a match at this point, we'd urge you to read on and reconsider.
We’re looking for someone deeply curious about the development world, a proactive problem solver with a positive and supportive vibe. As a small team, we work very closely, so communicating well should be important to you. You might sometimes head up certain features or entire projects, so the ability to manage your own workload is important.
There are a few tasks that you might be expected to be involved in:
Implement solutions to complex problems with our development team
Work with our designers to add your creative verve to build design systems
Create frontend systems with React and React Native (with GraphQL)
Build APIs using GraphQL and Lambda (usually with MongoDB)
Articulate decisions with the team and clients
Use Git to version control all your code
Work in sprints on multiple projects
All of our products use TypeScript and live on AWS. We use React.js on the frontend, either with MaterialUI or by building a completely custom interface. We use Node.js on the backend, running through AppSync and Lambda functions with MongoDB usually. Accessibility and knowledge of web standards is important to how we work.
We’re offering you an opportunity to grow as a person at a small company where everyone has a part to play. Personal development and wellbeing is an important part of our culture. We try to fit side hustles and R&D projects whenever possible to keep the creative juices flowing.
Super flexible hours: core hours Monday to Thursday 10am - 2pm GMT.
25 days leave plus birthday and bank holidays off
Closed to clients over Christmas
Private healthcare for your family
Regular team meetups, online cuppas, virtual festivals
