As a member of our team, we want you to:

  • Team drinks out roughly every month, and twice yearly team parties

  • Loads of snacks/fruit/sweets to keep you fueled

Some of the nitty-gritty bits:

  • This is a split remote/office role, with 2 days a week (Wednesdays/Fridays) in our central London office, and the rest wherever you decide

  • We have both mid-weight and senior roles open, so depending on experience, we expect you to be able to work independently with support from our senior backend developers and technical director.
