Are you a talented, smart, conscientious programmer, who wants to gain experience in a fast-growing company? Join the team at BusinessBecause, a London-based tech start-up building a global community for the business school world! Launched in 2009, we’ve worked with 80% of leading European Business Schools and have over 35,000 members on our ever growing network. The BusinessBecause software is built in CodeIgniter/ PHP incorporating some modules from a CMS called Pyro. We’ve used in-house design and UX and we’ve gathered detailed feedback from thousands of our target audience to make sure we’re giving them a site they like and need!

Your role will be to focus on web development including enhancing and building core parts of the site, you will be supported by a larger team of web developers working on other projects. Ideally you’ll be great at back end and front end, but we appreciate you might be stronger in one area than another! We’ll give you a few weeks to up-skill but we’d like someone with confidence to take on core areas of the site. We have many exciting new features and functionality to add to BusinessBecause and we have other web development projects in the pipeline, so there’ll be plenty to keep you challenged.

Salary will depend on skill-set/experience. You’ll work in a beautiful office with a fun, no-nonsense small organisation who enjoy flexible working hours and style – but with a lot of challenge and responsibility.
