What does the work involve?

You'll be working on both the front-end (Angular) and also the back-end (Node, MongoDB, Redis and a message queue). The work is challenging, as we're building a platform that is sending and receiving messages to/from several platforms.

Although there's obviously some complexity in the codebase, we've worked hard to reduce technical debt, achieve excellent test coverage, and follow conventions where possible. So you'll be joining a project where most of the working day is spent thinking about the future rather than catching up with the past. That's not to say our work is done, we have a long way to go!

The role is for a senior developer, who will lead other developers as we grow our team in Padiham, UK. It's a 40 minute commute from Manchester, with plenty of free parking and a view of the countryside!

The team

We're a small team split between head office (near Manchester, UK) and remote developers based in the UK and worldwide. Tools such as Trello and Slack help us communicate. We try and make roles, responsibilities and goals clear so that we can each get on with our own work without needing to be in constant communication.

Ideally, you will: 

  • Have experience of Node, Angular & MongoDB.
  • Preferably have worked with Redis and MySQL too.
  • Know common tools such as Git, unit testing frameworks, and PaaS such as Heroku.
  • Have worked with API's, and are familiar with SOAP, XML, JSON and API authentication strategies.
  • Be engaging, approachable and pragmatic.
  • Be great at written communication.
  • Be thorough. Always be considering 'what if', so you can write code and design logic that is robust and secure.
  • Have commercial acumen and business awareness.

What's in it for me?

  • A very competitive salary.
  • Flexible working hours.
  • Part-time remote working available.
  • A great team.
  • Free parking.

We're a business that believes in finding great people, giving them clear goals, and letting them get on with the job.
