Job description

We are looking for a junior software developer to join our core engineering team. As the ideal candidate, you know at least the basics of one language among Java, Javascript and Python, and the most common of algorithms, data structures and programming techniques. You may already have some experience hacking your own projects but not necessarily at a workplace. If you have a Github profile or code portfolio, that’d be awesome to show! You’re humble, willing to learn, open to new challenges and have the determination to see things through to the end. You have an engineering approach to things by first understanding the problem and then fixing it.

On our frontend, we use Javascript, HTML and CSS, plus a bit of React. On the backend, which exposes REST APIs, we use Java, NodeJS, Python, Apache, MySQL, RabbitMQ and Ansible for deployment automation in the cloud. All our core microservices are currently written in Java with Spring-Boot, we are using Python for some supporting functions and services. We use Kanban as a development process, some TDD, but we are flexible.

You will be working side by side with our CTO Bruno – a good mentor who can really teach you a lot, giving you the tools for a successful career in software development. In terms of the contract, this is full time and permanent employment. You will be provided with a shiny new Linux laptop, an extra monitor and all the help we can provide. Your salary will be between 20k£ and 23k£ for the first year, depending on your experience. The position is fully remote, but we do occasionally visit the office in central London for team meetings. At this time, we are not able to provide VISAs, so please make sure you have the right to work in the UK.

Most of your day job will be around coding, under supervision and mentoring, so that you can improve your skillset and become more valuable. There are a lot of very interesting (and challenging) features to build, some more complicated than others, and we have a never-ending backlog to go through! Some time in your workday will also be dedicated to DevOps, support and QA: at this stage in the company, all engineers need to be able to do a bit of everything and be responsible for their own code. You can choose to focus on backend, frontend or both 🙂
