Full Time

My client is one of the UK’s leading customer generation companies. They are a rapidly growing business - they topped the Sunday Times Tech Track, and since then grew 278% per annum before tripling in size again. They now employ over 350 staff in the UK and USA, and conduct marketing activities in more than 120 countries.

The Tech Team

My client’s Technology team vision is to create Industry leading products in the areas of publishing, customer acquisition, mass channel marketing automation, global consumer scale CRM, petabyte sized analytics, call centres and internal processes. They expect much of their growth to come from great ideas our team members generate, with our collaborative approach accelerating their delivery.

We value people who are proactive and react swiftly, so you will contribute by making considered, meaningful changes to our live systems, improving the operation of our business from your very first week.

As you progress you will learn about relational databases, how to write a query using SQL, and generate a report. Your role will expand to provide first line support of a wide range of our software products. There is no limit on what you can learn and deliver.
