The Role

Our client is looking for a full stack developer who has a particularly special place

code for our entire platform with potential to touch everything from backend programming and

infrastructure automation through to building amazing user experiences in React.js.

You would ideally have 4+ years mid to senior development experience and a computer science

degree or equivalent backing that up. You will have had a significant hand leading a development team through to successful delivery of products and enjoy mentoring your more junior team mates.

technologies, don't worry, we'd still love to hear from you.

  • MySQL / ElasticSearch
  • JavaScript (we like ES6, React & Redux)
  • AWS / Google Cloud Platform


  • Design, build, and maintain efficient, reusable, and reliable code
  • Ensure the best possible performance, quality, and responsiveness of the platform
  • Identify bottlenecks and bugs, and devise solutions to these problems
