Overview

Is this role a good fit for you?

  • Are you the ‘go to’ person on your team?
  • Does every difficult task seem to end up on your plate?
  • When everyone else gets overwhelmed (‘this will take weeks’), are you the person that just gets stuff done (‘I’ve fixed it’)?

If so, then you are the kind of developer that would fit in here at Day Digital.
We are open to all manner of applicants. In particular people with a few years of experience that don’t feel like they have the chance to thrive, and also recent graduates who don’t to waste any time getting ahead in their career.

How are we different?

At Day Digital we believe most companies over complicate software development.

We pride ourselves on keeping things simple, user-focused, and commercially pragmatic (i.e. profitable for our clients).

Other companies may emphasise ‘You must have X years experience in technology Y’, we focus on people’s potential, and giving them permission to thrive.

What are we looking for?

We are looking for a full-time developer to join the team , and build great products for our clients.

We help clients of all shapes and sizes, in particular larger businesses for whom technology projects often mean more process and less outcome.

We focus, start small and iterate rapidly.

Personal qualities

We pay attention to skills you can’t always teach someone – such as integrity, common sense, empathy, being a fast learner, and having a good natured personality.

  • Hard work No one gets to the top without making significant effort. You must have good day-to-day working habits, and want to succeed without cutting corners.
  • Your potential – You must be able to take on responsibility for client projects from day 1, and thrive on learning new skills constantly.
  • Must have skills – This is a brand new role and an exciting opportunity to help shape our technology choices going forward.
  • We are technology agnostic, the overriding objective is to do more with less, and get the job done for the client. We use lightweight, modern, and open source technology.
  • Rapid Prototyping
    This is often the quickest way to show clients that ‘you get what they want’.
  • End-to-end delivery
    It is imperative that you can design, build, and deploy software on your own.
  • Customer driven, technology focused
    The reason our clients enjoy doing business with us, is because we can help them in ways that no one (including a lot of smart people) have spotted.
  • Hard worker, with ability to focus
    You are highly receptive to feedback and ideas, however once priorities are clear you are quick to get going, and not easily distracted.

What we offer

A challenging job with responsibility from day 1 (interaction with clients, technology decisions, responsible for end-to-end delivery), rapid career progression.

You will be a key part of the team as we enhance our reputation for being hard working, easy to deal with, and above all… getting the job done.

Step 1: Application

– please send us your CV (above)

Step 2: Paid work exercise

We will be inviting the best applicants to take part in a paid exercise (1 week deadline, with payment based on current income).

We look forward to hearing from you.
