  • You'll have 3+ years experience as a Lead Developer. With a passion for coding and a track record of developing high quality products. 
  • You'll have a passion for building teams. As we grow rapidly, you will need to instil excellent technical best practices, like peer reviews, and improve our development team.

  • You'll have a history of delivering high quality products. Working across the business to distil requirements, working with designers, project managers, marketeers and developers to create products that deliver impact.

The Benefits 

We hope that you love your job because of our mission, culture and the work. But, we also put a lot of thought into providing great benefits to make your job that bit sweeter, such as:  

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. 

Great equipment and software. All team members use high spec Mac's and the latest software to make working enjoyable and easy. Plus, we can kit you out with any peripherals you may need. 

Generous holiday. 28 days plus bank holidays per year, and we close over Christmas.

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.  

Quick recruitment. We appreciate finding a job is time consuming and often slow, so we aim to move from first interview to offer within two weeks.
