  • A deep care for building quality products with a high attention to detail.
  • Experience deploying to a live environment.
  • A love for good UI/UX and design is a bonus.
  • Ideally, some understanding and experience with Google Cloud Platform (App Engine).
  • Like to keep up to date with the latest technologies & industry developments.
  • Preferably, some understanding of IT & Networking, to occasionally assist our CTO with IT infrastructure as we grow.
  • Can demonstrate top quality applications / websites that you’ve worked on before.

What you’ll get:

  • Competitive salary.

  • Top quality coffee, tea, drinks, snacks and treats once we move into our trendy new office. Plus team events and happy hours.
  • Choice of Macbook or Windows laptop, with allowance for the accessories you need for a productive environment.
  • Potential for perks from our travel clients.
  • Potential for increased benefits as we grow and establish our modern company culture.

*We have postponed moving into an office due to social distancing measures, so you will need to work from home full time initially. We hope to move into our London Bridge office after September.
