We're the UK's leading FilmTech scaleup (SaaS) and we're driving global film and television production into a connected, digital, standardised future. Recently acquired by US business Entertainment Partners, we're powering ahead with our goal to revolutionise the industry.
We are growing our team and we are looking for experienced developers who can help us deliver our vision for a fairer, more transparent future for high-end content production.
We want to find someone who is comfortable in a team, who can communicate clearly and collaborate effectively to make a great customer experience happen. Ideally we want to bring experienced people into the team to help support and balance our existing team members. We want to focus on helping you understand the world of film and television and our clients rather than helping you learn about technology.What technologies do you use?We are pragmatic users of:
- Web Standards
If you know similar technologies such as Ruby, Typescript, MySql or Azure we're happy to help you expand your knowledge to new areas if you're willing to try something outside of what you are familiar with.What will you be doing?
You'll be working as part of a cross-functional team tackling a specific business problem which might be enhancing some of our existing functionality to help make it more useful or creating a whole new feature set for a new audience. Whatever happens the work is going to be varied!
We'll also want you to find it natural to share what you know with other team members and to want to support them. We have internal training and knowledge sharing sessions and you'll be expected to be part of supporting and sustaining that culture as well as learning yourself.
We are looking for people who enjoy collaboration and want to engage with and understand our client's needs while bringing a technological understanding of what our existing solutions can do and how it can be expanded to meet new problems.
We'd like you to have a commitment to the idea of solving problems with working software. Leading by example and taking the initiative to break impasses and help the whole team move forward collectively.
While line management is not mandatory we would like you to have empathy and a desire to connect with and support other members of the team. We'd like you to be able offer support and energy to those members of the team who would benefit from it. If you are interested in line management then we will support you with personalised coaching to help you manage yourself and give you a safe place to talk about how to develop and support others.
We also you want to bring an engaged, informed voice to our technical discussions. As a team we are constantly trying to find the right balance of innovation and convention in our use of technology.How do we work?
Typically we use an informal Lean Agile process where empowered self-organising teams are granted a lot of autonomy to pursue the business objectives they've been set. This means there can be a lot of variability in how exactly teams operate as what works for an experimental discovery project isn't the same as delivering work for a big feature film on a deadline.
Hopefully you'll prefer the freedom to refine your ways of working instead of following a prescribed process.
We're a small team so we are always interested in techniques and solutions that maximise our impact and which help people join the team and be productive quickly. We have regular forums for discussion and hold retrospectives on projects and incidents to try and make sure we are always seeking to improve. We would like you to be proactive in seeking to fix problems and build on success.Our clientsWe work with the people behind huge film franchises like:
