In a nutshell, we are changing the way people buy greeting cards.

We’ve built the next generation marketplace for the creative industry, where artists from around the globe can create awesome greeting cards and leave the hard work of selling, customising, printing, dispatching, supporting etc. to us.
With over 22,000 cards on sale, available on iOS, Android and on the web, and with customers and sellers from 100+ countries, we’re changing the world a card at a time.

We’re looking for a Junior Backend developer to join our Core API team.

More than commercial experience, we are looking for truly passionate developers. If your friends call you a geek, if you spend some of your nights doing "one last thing" on your computer, get excited about new frameworks, API gateways, micro services, NoSQL databases with billions of entries... we need to talk.

We are running a fully stateless, micro services API on Spring Boot which powers all our clients (web and native mobiles) as well as a host of internal management apps, scripts, .... With millions of requests managed per days, uptime of 100%, and daily releases, you'll have your first features running on production in days.

*Required Skills*
* 0-1 year commercial experience with Java
* Good Understanding of RESTFul API, stateless services
* Experience with Spring (particularly Spring Boot and Security)
* Good understanding of Object Oriented programming and standard design patterns
* Git

*What do you get out of it?*
The opportunity to develop and grow fast along with the business, and learn a whole lot along the way.
A central London office featuring an office dog, a garden shed and a large supply of Nespresso.
Regular office treats (doughnuts fuel our creative fire!), and freedom from stuffy dress codes and corporate attitudes!
