Full Stack Software Engineer

Job description

We're looking for somebody to join our small development team who is excited by the ability to have autonomy and help make decisions about the direction of our software, technology, architecture, and entire company. We are as fully remote as you want, but we like to get together once a month to have a party and see each-other in the flesh! We have co-working spaces available, and there are always colleagues there if you want to get into an office. 

We value working together and collaboration, solving challenges together, exploring new technologies and ideas together, and producing not only the best software, but the best technological solutions possible, solving problems in elegant, efficient ways. We value smart decisions that result in lean solutions. 

You will be working across all of our broad spectrum of applications, from our RESTful APIs, our Microfrontends, our third-party integrations, our portals, site builders, marketplace apps, or helping out with Terraform scripts to build out our deployment environments, you name it.

The technology stack is NodeJS based, with Fastify and HapiJS on the backend, SvelteKit on the frontend, and MongoDB at the database layer. We use a number of serverless deployment environments, mostly Vercel and Google Cloud.

We have a huge emphasis on clean, well tested code - how you get there is up to you, whether it's TDD or something else, as long as we can continue to deliver quickly, with a great level of confidence, and never have to diagnose or debug issues in production!

We pride ourselves on having a developer experience as good as our customer experience, which means that onboarding is a quick process, everything runs locally, our local environment, qa environments, and production environments are all as identical as practically possible, and there is minimal setup.

Our process is flexible - we have an agile mentality, with a focus on stories and acceptance criteria, but the process is largely created and driven by the team, and open to change. Pair programming is optional, but encouraged as it is useful for learning and getting complex solutions delivered quickly. 

About you 

Ideally you'd be somebody who is passionate about clean code and knows how to write tests, is proficient in NodeJS as well as in any frontend stack you like - We use Svelte throughout, but experience isn't necessary, is it as close to vanilla javascript as you're likely to find, and you can learn it in days. The CTO is a Svelte core maintainer, so experience is on hand.

You'd want to listen to customers to help shape the features you build. You'd want to work with stakeholders, designers, and the rest of the tech team to build amazing things.

You have a passion for making things better, showing us better ways of working, improving our software, pleasing customers, and getting features out in the wild on a daily basis. We move fast, but with care. You like to follow the boyscout rule - leaving things in a better state than you found them.

You'd get excited by hype around things such as AI, but level headed, thinking of ways that we could get practical use out of exciting developments in the technology space.
