Description:

As a Back- End Developer at Magnetic Rock you'll immediately be working on real products which will be shaping the future of education in the cyber security industry. As an early employee (low double digits) you’ll have a real opportunity to influence how we do things, the technologies we adopt and the chance to build products based on modern technology stacks.

We have a number of products that we are currently incubating either written in PHP or .NET, with React front-ends, MySQL databases and hosted in AWS. As a Developer, you’d work with the rest of the Product team Front-End Developers, Full-Stack Developers, Lead Developers, Product Designers, Product Marketing Managers and Product Managers) to iterate an incubated product into life.

We also have a Core team ready to support all our Product teams, which include DevOps specialists, Cyber Security specialists, Project Managers, UX Researchers and Design experts. Our Head of Engineering will also be available to help with any architectural decisions, processes, strategy or pastoral support needed but you will be empowered to truly own the code you write (we are not a feature factory).

  • Be joined by other new developers and Product team members (so you’ll all be on a new journey together).
  • Actively contribute to an MVP or next early iteration of our product, driven by a clear long-term strategy and metrics to measure success.
  • You’ll get to know what the product is about, who the users are, the value we are trying to deliver and why we are doing what we are doing (you can probably help shape this through technical innovation).
  • Will build new features and architecture (and may even choose to rebuild some parts of the product prototype already built).
  • Attend peer review and acceptance test other developers’ code/changes/pull requests.
  • Participate in projects to choose technical strategy, approaches, frameworks and tools for your product and future products that we build.
  • Write tests, implement logging and build out technical documentation, setting the product up for long-term success and health.

  • Some interest in front-end technologies (to understand how the web app works together and to provide occasional cover/assistance to the rest of the team).
  • Some interest and/or experience in building performant, scalable and reliable databases.
  • An interest in a wide range of best practices in software development for example DevOps practices, OO design/development, SOLID.

Benefits

  • Flexible & remote working. We are a remote-first business with flexibility for you to work in tandem with your home life. We also have access to an office in the Cotswolds so we still meet up regularly, but more for socials.

  • Swag bag. We want you to feel welcomed so expect a pretty sweet new starter pack.
  • Private health. We offer Vitality health insurance that comes with its own perks from free cinema tickets to a discounted Apple Watch.
  • Referral programme. We are growing rapidly so if you introduce us to an amazing person who joins us then we'll pay you £1,000 as a little thank you.
  • Thoughtful onboarding. Joining a new company can be daunting, we want you to succeed so we have a programme to get you up to speed with our culture and your role.
  • A bigger team. We're part of a collection of companies (including Helical Levity, Spinning Fox and Secure Impact) run by the same leadership team. So there is lots of shared learning and some epic summer parties.
