We’re a collaborative team so you’ll work with the Product Manager to define the roadmap for any given product and translate this into user stories

In short, please apply if you are interested in working with our stack! As soon as you join you will have an on-boarding plan tailored to you, challenging and bringing you up to speed.

About you as a person:

  • You think about things critically - we’re the first to do what we do in this industry, so you’ll come across new problems every day
  • You’ll fearlessly attack problems - we think the tools you know now are secondary to having the mindset to fix things, i.e. you’re a problem solver and not just a builder
  • You like working in a team - we have an agile development environment and get stuff done together in multi-disciplinary teams
  • You’re flexible and adaptable - we have multiple teams working on complementary but different products, so you’ll thrive on variety


About your skills:

You are proficient in backend and frontend development, and you have experience developing large and complex web applications and building high throughput systems with microservices and/or event-driven architectures and both relational and non-relational databases.
