Full Time
We are looking for an experienced backend developer to join our fast growth business. You will work directly with our Technical Director to support the design and development of our new internal management system as we move our existing stack towards a new cloud based architecture.

Our innovative platform helps people moving home, saving them time, hassle and money. This is a very exciting time to join, as we have recently raised investment, have grown rapidly over the last few months, and are now looking to expand our incredibly smart, passionate and ethically-minded team (we have just become a B Corp!).

The ideal candidate has 4+ years developing scalable web based products and solid experience with AWS, is database savvy and has a strong knowledge of key web services (like REST). From a technical perspective, we want someone who has demonstrable experience scaling projects and ideally has been through a system transition before (not essential however).

From a process perspective, we’d expect you to have a broad range of experience in development techniques.

The existing system is built in PHP so a strong working knowledge of this is essential but we would like the candidate to help determine the future direction of the core stack with our management team. We are currently considering Python but very open to other recommendations based on the teams capabilities.

*Must haves:*
* Excellent PHP programming skills
* SQL / Database
* Highly experienced with AWS or other cloud services
* Javascript
* Happy in a growing startup environment
* API creation, development and integration

* Python or Rails
* Node.js
* AngularJS

We currently outsource development so reviewing code and working with these teams will be important at the start while we build our own team.

The ideal candidate is looking for a challenge, self motivated and excited to be part of a new team developing our future architecture/stack.

*The Offer:*
* A great product, amazing team and funding to deliver what’s needed
* An attractive salary from £40-45K depending on experience
* Options in the company are available
* Flexible working hours / location
* We are a B Corp
