  • Designing well thought out web APIs.
  • Become a pragmatic engineer who actively avoids over engineering solutions.
  • Understanding how to maintain high quality of code in a delivery focused environment.
  • Use of a CI / CD pipeline to build and deploy new functionality safely and effectively.


Your Behaviour

  • You respond positively to feedback.
  • You are confident to engage with your team.
  • No challenge is too big or small for you.
  • You question ideas that you do not fully understand or agree with.
  • You desire to work in a respectful, transparent, and collaborative work environment.

We would love if you

  • Have some experience with C# or Java.
  • Have some experience using version control.
  • Have some experience writing automated tests.
  • Have an awareness of extreme programming development methodologies.


Other reasons to join our team:
