Who we are

The Dazzle team are set to revolutionise the customer experience in public transport using machine learning and personalised, automated conversations.

We want to impact the lives of millions of people every day in the transportation sector, including those who may currently find the transportation system scary or inaccessible.

The atmosphere overall is dynamic and unique. It’s influenced by our backgrounds at successful startups, big tech companies, and premier consulting firms — blended and crafted into what feels natural and right for this company. It plays out in our balance of scrappy and strategic, frameworks and fast thinking.

We’ve won multiple awards for our white label conversational commerce platform and we’ve just completed the Wayra (O2/Telefonica) start-up accelerator. We are ready to go big.

If you’re interested, keep reading.

Our Vision
The Dazzle platform will enable deep insight into the preferences, context and needs of the individual user. It will then compare, collate, analyse and learn in order to orchestrate and personalise every conversation, taking the pain out of travel decisions, delivering a new transportation paradigm.

Our technology will enable transport customers to have automated, natural language conversations using any digital channel, including those they already use in daily life to plan, book and manage their multimodal travel and take advantage of additional, highly relevant services.

How we do things

We work in cross-functional product teams with bi-weekly sprints.
You can expect to work on a wide variety of technical solutions from user-facing applications to internal tools.
We take pride in the code we ship and aim to do all the right things (test driven development, code reviews, “leave it better than you found it”, etc) and expect you to contribute to the improvement of these development processes.
We have the whole company in one office to make sure we operate as a close-knit team. This means that everyone learns together and delivers together and it means that everyone can be close to, and contribute to, the pulse of the business.

Some of the technologies we use:
We currently use Java (Netty, DL4J, Elasticsearch) to write our application code, Ansible to deploy and Javascript (MaterialUI, React.js, Redux.js, ES6, Webpack) on the frontend. Some of the services we use are Dialogflow, Amazon Alexa, Contentful, CloudFormation, Twilio.

How we interview
We start with a face-to-face meeting to get to know you and give you an introduction to the company to ensure everyone is happy with the fit. If everyone wants to go further this will be followed by some simple coding challenges. If that goes well, there will be a final interview with the engineers and product managers you’ll be working with.
Your interview will be centred around a pair programming exercise and we’ll also look for evidence of strong communication and team skills. We promise no brain teasers! Throughout the process you’ll meet a number of people including engineering leaders, fellow individual contributors and product managers. We’ll aim to get back to you the day after your interview with a final answer.
