Overview

Recruitment is broken, we’re here to fix it. We’re an ambitious new technology startup based in a lively workspace in Farringdon, and we’re looking for a backend engineer.

We’re a small team and we’ve just got started. This is our first backend role, so you’ll have an opportunity to shape the technology for the site. We’re leaning towards Rails or Laravel, but we’re open to ideas.

  • Collaborating with the frontend engineer to help each other’s work
  • Setting up and managing tools for backend development
  • Creating and managing the backend build process of deployment

We’re looking for:

  • Somebody that can balance trying new things with trying not to re-invent the wheel
  • A love for attention to detail, but not getting drowned by it
  • A willingness to hear out other, non-technical and technical members of the team
  • A product-focused mind that’s prepared to do the hard work so the user doesn’t have to
  • Priority-focused decision making

We’d love you to have:

  • A great knowledge of at least one programming language
  • Experience with an MVC framework such as Laravel, Rails, or Django. More than one would be great
  • A strong desire to work in a test-driven environment
  • Distributed version control knowledge

Even better if you have also:

  • Have CI/CD experience
  • Have some server knowledge
