Aspirant Analytics is looking for a bright and driven Full-Stack Developer to help build our core analytics engine and web applications. You will work with cutting-edge technology in a collaborative and agile environment. You'll be part of our core team and work with us to build a successful business.
Aspirant Analytics is a tech startup based in Shoreditch. We provide the most impactful People Analytics, delivered in the simplest way. Since winning the Innovate UK grant in 2015, we have been busy building technology that gives our clients game-changing insights about their people. By unlocking insights from clients' data, our work has helped our clients to roll out initiatives which tackle transparency and fairness in the workplace, such as interviewer bias and gender diversity. Our clients love our work! We’re so proud of what we’ve built and the impact it has had so far, but we’re only just getting started.
We have an informal, hard-working, and supportive team culture. We are small but very diverse: collectively we speak 13 languages. Our past experiences range from corporate careers in Bloomberg, Goldman Sachs, and McKinsey, to recent graduates of leading UK universities and European business schools.
Our infrastructure runs on AWS and we use many of its services (EC2, S3, SQS, Lambda, Elasticsearch to name a few). AngularJS is our choice of front-end web framework. Back-end services are built with NodeJS, using Docker for deployment. Our knowledge graph is built using the RDF standard, queried with SPARQL. We employ a number of machine learning and automation techniques using Python. As we are a small team, over time you will likely gain exposure to all of the above technologies and tools.
You are an enthusiastic problem solver who loves a good challenge. You have a strong background in web application development and would embrace any opportunity to learn new technologies across the stack. You get a kick out of making things work, and even more so when you deliver good service to others. You are a self-starter and want to work with other smart, hard-working people, to build something great that you'll be proud of.
