We use continuous delivery where new features are released as they are ready. Design work is collaborative involving many members of the team to identify the best possible solutions. We believe in continuous improvement and hold regular retrospectives to improve and streamline our practices. On Fridays we share knowledge with short presentations and relax with a drink.

Application Process

Apply via the job ad on LinkedIn.

Don’t worry if you don’t meet all the requirements, we’re just looking for passionate, experienced, keen to learn, smart people - apply anyway and let us know what your strengths are.

The process works as follows:

  • Applications will be initially screened and a select few will be phone interviewed.
  • If the phone interview goes well you will be issued the “Tech Task” - a deliberately open ended take-home assignment to show off your skills. You’ll then meet with the team to talk us through what you have created.
  • If your Tech Task wows us you will be invited to a non-technical, 3 hour “Topgrading” interview with key personnel from our Senior Leadership Team.

We are looking for the best of the best and understand the above process is a big ask. We aim to be respectful with your time and if you make it through we think you’re really special.
