About the role
We're looking for an ambitious, motivated, intelligent and pragmatic developer who is also passionate about human rights, the environment and making a difference.
Your role will be to develop the back end and devops for our platform. Your work will be central to our product and the role is expected to grow with the company.

Whilst we run a professional team with plenty of support, we’re a small company and you'll be building production code in use across our clients, so you'll be responsible for deploying and maintaining your own work, ensuring complete test coverage and optimising code performance as well as developing back-end features.
