What You Bring: 💭

One of our core values is ‘Deserve the Customer’, so a customer first attitude is paramount for us and as a tech team, we need to embrace that as much as anyone. From a technical perspective, there are a few things we do that we think have been pillars in our success as a tech team. We build robust and scalable systems; we champion Test Driven Design, and we push for the absolute best practices and standards across the scale-up landscape. If you think you can contribute to all those points, that’s a huge tick for us.

Our Tech Stack Is Predominantly

  • Typescript, React, Node & GraphQL
  • Some legacy PHP that is actively being replaced
  • Hosted on AWS where we leverage RDS, ECS, Lambda, SQS, and EventBridge

As a Senior Engineer, we envision you guiding and leading the teams technically, and doing this without experience in the above technologies would be too much to ask, so we’re looking for some quality experience in any of the above tech. This is a full stack role, so experience wrangling API’s in the backend as well as building beautifully working structure in the frontend will be super useful!
