We represent our work on a Kanban board in JIRA and focus on having a good degree of contact between the development & design teams to ensure everyone is clear on what's being built.

We expect developers to have ownership of their work from start to finish, this means having autonomy to solve problems and deliver functionality into production in a timely manner.

We use pull requests & Heroku review apps to obtain feedback from our peers.

Testing is important to us and we cover feature happy paths with integration tests, use unit tests for other components and aim for test value over % coverage.

We also use rubocop, slim-lint & jscs to keep the code tidy and encourage developers to use overcommit locally.

We are looking for self-starters who enjoy collaborating to achieve our common goals.

Experience with our current stack is preferred but not essential.
