There are plenty of technical acronyms in here, but fundamentally we're looking for intelligent people who have an eagerness to learn new things, and the communication skills to be able to explain them to humans such as project managers and our clients.

As well as the technical knowledge, we need people that get it - people who can figure things out by themselves but know when to yell for help. Cutting down and simplifying complex problems with interfaces which make them appear straightforward.


You should probably know about...

  • Architecting and developing complex JavaScript-powered applications
  • Working closely with backend developers and UX designers
  • Javascript frameworks & libraries such as AngularJS or Backbone.js
  • Semantically marked up HTML
  • CSS, including LESS & SASS
  • git
  • Template engines such as Django, Jinja, or Smarty

  • Development & consumption of HTTP APIs
  • Internationalisation
  • Google Apps & APIs
  • Use of PaaS, such as Google App Engine, Heroku, Elastic Beanstalk, or Windows Azure
  • noSQL & SQL databases

In return you'll get...

  • Free lunch, drinks and snacks
  • A fun and supportive, developer-focussed working environment

Applying:

Feel free to apply with a cover letter and CV, but what we would really like to see is some code you've written. A GitHub or Bitbucket URL is ideal. Please let us know whether a freelance or fulltime position is preferable, too.

If we like what we see we'll get back to you quickly to arrange to have a cup of tea and a chat.
