Job Description

Who We Are

accesso® is a world-wide software company delivering industry leading virtual queuing, eCommerce and ticketing solutions for the attractions, cultural and leisure industries. Our Ingresso global distribution solution deepens accesso’s ability to help clients drive efficiency and realize greater value from their ticketing operations. The technology connects directly into any ticketing system, allowing for low-cost distribution of tickets in a seamless, dynamic environment. Since 2011, Ingresso has processed over 7.2 million ticket sales on behalf of our API-connected venues, totaling over $400 million.

Who We Are Looking For

We are looking for multiple smart and motivated Front-End Developers to join our small, London-based team. You will work across the Ingresso suite of products, but will be primarily focused on our ticketing websites. We sell thousands of tickets per day via the sites so you will have the chance to improve a popular consumer-facing product. We are embarking on a project to rewrite most of the site in React, so you should expect to spend a lot of time on this project.

You will work closely with product management and other front-end and back-end developers to improve our products and create new products. You will have an opinion on what makes a good product and are comfortable suggesting improvements.

Our ticketing platform consists of:

    • A transactional ticketing API
    • Ticketing websites (e.g. branded as Ticketmaster Theatre or our own retail brand, From the Box Office)
    • We aim to make these two products best in market and need your help to do it.

Our Stack:

    • Our web stack includes Python (Django), MySQL, React, Angular
    • For our backend services, we use a mixture of Python and Go, with our legacy application written in Objective C
    • Our stack runs on Kubernetes in GKE, with a legacy system running on-premises on FreeBSD

Required Qualifications:

    • Knowledge and experience of JavaScript, HTML and CSS
    • Experience with front-end build tools
    • Experience building single-page applications with React (ideally), Angular or Vue.js
    • Good communication, have an analytic mindset, and be a fast learner

Nice To Have:

    • Experience with LESS or SASS
    • Experience in other programming languages. Our website backend is written in Python / Django which you could eventually contribute to.
    • Experience with Git and Continuous Integration environments
    • A sense for UX / design
    • Previous experience developing eCommerce sites
    • Experience in startup environments and agile development

Perks & Benefits:

    • We offer a generous health insurance and pension scheme.
    • You will be given a new MacBook Pro or other laptop/OS of your choice.
    • We have free fruit, Friday afternoon beers, and often free tickets to West End shows and other entertainment.
    • accesso full-time employees benefit from unlimited Udemy courses as part of our global learning culture.

Other Considerations:

    • This position will be located in our main Ingresso office in London, W6.
    • We are unable to sponsor work permits at this time, therefore all candidates must be authorized to work in the UK.
    • accesso is a drug-free company.
    • This is a full-time, permanent position. No contractors please
