We love functional programming and adopt many of the concepts and methodologies that come with it. If you have experience with functional programming that’s a bonus, but don’t worry if you don’t. We know some companies give their team access to Pluralsight and expect you to cope. But Intelligent Editing is different. We all love learning, and we pride ourselves on our training even at senior levels. We have a core belief in training and mentorship, and we will give you the time, tools, and personal assistance to properly learn functional concepts even if you’ve never done it before.
About Intelligent Editing
Intelligent Editing was launched in 2009. We’re not going to be the next Uber, and we don’t want to be! We like being small and profitable with a great team. We believe in steady growth, quality service, and producing an excellent product.
We’re at the forefront of proofreading/editing technologies. We were among the first companies to produce apps for Office and add-ons for Google Docs. We’re interested in ways that natural language processing can advance the field.
Our development team enjoys complex problems. Most of us have our own projects outside of work, and we bring that energy to the (virtual) office. Books that get passed around the team include Clean Code (Uncle Bob), Functional Programming in C# (Enrico Buonanno) and Domain Modeling Made Functional (Scott Wlaschin). Oh, and did we mention that we’re obsessed with unit testing?
We believe that developers can contribute more to the business when they get to interact with end-users. Some of our best business ideas have come from giving our engineering team exposure to customers and the problems that they face. We’re always open to new and innovative suggestions from all our developers at any level.
We have a team call every day between 2pm and 4pm (UK time). All other hours are flexible. If you produce great work, we don’t care when you do it.
A Life Beyond Programming
We believe in work-life balance. We think it’s not realistic for developers to work more than forty hours per week and sustain quality. We’re sympathetic to the demands of parenting and welcome applications from experienced professionals from all backgrounds who need to work flexibly.
An Accepting and Diverse Workplace
Intelligent Editing is committed to being an equal opportunity employer. We aim to create a workplace that celebrates diversity. We do not tolerate discrimination. Our users are keepers of the written word, and we stand with those working to shine a light on all forms of exclusion and inequality. #BlackLivesMatter.
Summary of Highlights
Our work makes a difference. We help users focus on the parts of their job that matter. From medical writers working on vaccines (yup) to proposal writers bidding on some of the biggest engineering projects in the world, PerfectIt helps people focus on the meaningful part of their work.
Candidates must have the right to work in the UK and must be based in the UK.
