YOUR JOB

We are looking for a seriously clever person to join us in Fulham. Creative with known skills and adaptive to new skills. The only reason you’re not arrogant is because you are *that* brilliant.

Our technology roadmap consists of a Lumen (PHP) API, React/Redux (including serverside rendering,) MYSQL, Redis and Docker DevOps on AWS. You will be working closely with the CTO (a co-founder - also brilliant. Also writing this) to develop tech strategy and architecture while also adapting and improving legacy (CodeIgniter) code to the new paradigm. We like to use cutting (but not bleeding) edge tech to keep us in the sweet spot of improved speed and efficiency but without sacrificing confidence in the tools. While your focus will, initially, primarily be PHP, we are a dynamic team so overlap with the front end and deeper backend systems will be encouraged.

THE COMPANY

We are a rapidly growing online marketplace for hiring event spaces, meeting spaces and offices. Backed by the guys behind Rentalcars, Zoopla, LoveFilm, Shazam, Betfair and more, you’ll be joining a distilled team of outstanding professionals who have been working like crazy in a collaborative, innovative and progressive tech company. While well established, we still feel very much like a start-up, and input in all aspects of the business will be welcomed and factored into core strategy.

THE INTERVIEW...

... will focus significantly more on your ability to think rather than problems that can be solved with judicious use of Google. We will, however, expect a good level of understanding of various programming styles (such as OOP and functional) since the learning curve is going to be steep enough as it is. You can apply for this job if you don't currently understand recursive binary search, but I will expect you to understand it by the time we interview you.
