Are you an experienced Full Stack Developer / Software Engineer / Python Developer?

We have an incredible opportunity to join our award-winning company. As an experienced Full Stack Developer, we'll need you to innovate, design and develop an outstanding product which has a positive impact on hundreds of thousands of people worldwide.

Who are we?

We're a world-leading digital learning provider, designing and delivering custom workplace training for global brands across multiple sectors and industries including pharmaceutical, finance, retail, manufacturing and professional services. Our exciting client list includes some of the worlds' largest brands - Astra Zenecca, Coca-Cola, Tesco and Royal Mail, to name but a few. And it gets better...following an exciting acquisition last year by Aliter Capital, we've now partnered with Bolt Learning (award-winning LMS provider) and Mercurytide (digital creative agency), strengthening and extending our digital learning portfolio to better serve our clients. Combining powerful learning technologies with creative content development, the joining together of our companies creates a major new force in the learning technology market.

What you bring to us...

As a Senior Software Engineer/Full Stack Developer with strong experience, you have worked on several aspects of our technology already - from back end Python/Django/Go systems and scalable database design, to rich front end user interfaces. Our stack is diverse and comprises Python, Django, Node, Go, JavaScript, Vue, Knockout, Docker, PostgreSQL and Redis - you will have working experience of a number of these. You'll have solid experience with relational databases, strong problem-solving skills, understand the needs of highly available, scalable systems and have a good grasp of web security. You'll be a quick learner and enjoy keeping up to date with modern technologies and best practices.

What we give you...

Engineering great solutions

You'll primarily be working to add new functionality to, and enhance the existing features of, our platform. We take pride in properly understanding the true user requirements, so we can design and build the best solution.

Working with cloud-scale systems

We use both AWS and Google Cloud, along with a host of other third-party integrations.

Influence and steer our development plan and process

As an e-learning company with a core value of "always learning", we will want to learn from you.

Opportunity to grow and learn

Switching to microservices gives us the ability to expand our technology stack, so if you have experience or an interest in using other technologies (React, Node, Go, Rust, etc.) we will give you those opportunities and encourage your development.

R&D time

You'll get time to investigate and play with other interesting technologies such as machine learning, virtual reality (Oculus/GearVR/Cardboard), iOS and Android apps and real-time video communication.


Whilst we have offices throughout the UK (Devon, Bristol, Glasgow and Edinburgh), we understand the need for flexible and remote working, so as long as you are located in the UK and prepared to visit our offices if required, that's good enough for us.

How to apply...

We have an array of benefits which include workplace pension and flexible working and would love to hear from you. If you are tempted, think that you can meet our criteria and would like to join an innovative team that's impacting the learning industry, select the apply button shown to send us your CV and a covering letter now.
