The Role


You will be the first hire in the Customer Engagement development team, working directly with the Engineering Director. Great teams collaborate and have trust in each other. In a great team you feel safe asking ‘stupid’ questions, or admitting you don’t know something. In a great team you can ask for help. In great teams people are learning from each other all the time. Great teams aren’t afraid of failure but learn from mistakes. You will be instrumental in helping to build this culture.


Day-to-day you will be working with existing systems, improving them and supporting their growth. There are also several major new projects in the pipeline, which you will be fully involved in shaping. You will need to get things done and constantly be learning. At the same time, technical debt will kill our ability to move fast, so code and system quality/simplicity are essential.


Overall the way we work is that we’re given high-level goals and left to figure out the best way to achieve them.


Essential Skills
The ability to build and run entire systems, not just a bit of them
General software development 8+ years
Ruby (on Rails), 5+ years
Lots of experience with automated testing and refactoring
Postgres or similar
Web (CSS, JS)
AWS (EC2, S3, Cloudfront etc.)


Nice to have
Experience of doing agile for real i.e. not Waterfall with standups ;-)
Some data analysis (R/Python)


What You Get
The chance to shape the team and technology in a very fast-growing business
The Mac of your choice ;-)
Great team atmosphere with regular social team events = unlimited drinks, snacks and more
Top central London location
All perks we sell to our customers are perks we get for FREE.
Salary is very competitive and based on experience
