  • Deployment and Devops (we use AWS and usually Docker),
  • Writing clean code, contributing to open source and internal libraries
  • Code reviews and potential mentoring of a Junior developer

We are looking for someone with a good level of experience who will be comfortable to grow with the role and take on more responsibility as the team expands. We are still a small team, so you must be comfortable with conversing across all aspects of development and reacting quickly to new information.

Technology we use:

We have no particular preference for the technology that you may wish to use and are agnostic about what we use day to day, preferring the right tool for the job. That said, on our backend we currently use a lot of;

  • Go (And Scala but not imperative)
  • Python/Ruby for scripting
  • Postgres and PostGIS
  • Docker
  • AWS

If you are looking for a forward thinking, technology driven business with the opportunity to grow with the business and have a real say then please apply with your latest CV. They client will also consider remote working should you not be based in a commutable distance to the London office.
