The role

You will be working as a member of a small engineering team, delivering diverse features that span our clients entire technology stack. That stack currently comprises Ruby on Rails, Sidekiq, VueJS, PostgreSQL, Elasticsearch, Redis, AWS and more. Today you might be exposing an internal API. Tomorrow you might be writing front-end screens. Next week you might be evaluating a new framework or 3rd party API. Next month you might be working on our clients new mobile app or helping gain business insights from their growing datastore. Regardless of which layer of the stack you are working in, you will be practising TDD, committing code to Git regularly, submitting merge requests for peer review and reviewing other people's merge requests in return.

The ideal candidate:

You will have several, if not many, years of experience in full-stack web or mobile software development. Your experience might not match our clients technology stack exactly, but you will enjoy learning new frameworks and programming languages with the full support of an experienced team. You won't be tied to a single language or technology stack but recognise that modern systems comprise and benefit from polyglot approaches. You will be a quick learner - able to research, experiment, evaluate and demonstrate new tools, languages, frameworks or approaches effectively. You will always be looking for better ways to solve problems. You will be equally happy working remotely or co-located with colleagues; alone or paired on a task.

Ideally profile is 1-2+years commercial experience but our client will also consider a grad with a relevant placement year.
