Type of person we are looking for

We are a small, young company looking for people who want to have a real impact where they work. We want technical leads who enjoy finding new ways to solve technical problems. You will need to be experienced at both designing the technical solution and implementing that solution. You should be capable of quickly picking up and working with new languages and technologies. We think people should enjoy what they do, we are looking for people who have a genuine interest in writing code and have been doing it in their spare time for many years. We would expect candidates to have been involved in multiple open source or commercial software products outside of work. We are interested in speaking to people with 3+ years career experience.

The starting salary will be dependent on your experience.
