Software Engineer

Edinburgh, United Kingdom expand job description ↓


Who we're looking for

If you’re a recent graduate or early in your career, we’re looking for someone who has experience with modern JavaScript and/or Ruby on Rails and who’s happy to work across the stack. You’ll be able to show us significant contributions to previous projects or open source work. You’ll be a fast learner who’s looking for a place to build your skills.

If you’re further on in your career, we’re looking for someone who has deep experience in building web or mobile applications.

You might have had experience leading teams and you’ll be used to mentoring other developers and advocating technology choices.
