We are looking for Software Developers to work on web-based applications and huge data analysis projects using cutting edge web technologies such as MongoDB and node.JS.

The successful candidate will be given the opportunity to contribute in some or all of the following ways:

  • Take ownership of new client accounts, working with clients to capture their requirements, then implementing custom JavaScript to work with clients' websites through to a full implementation
  • Provide creative optimisation solutions to issues clients are seeing. They will then run split tests to prove the effectiveness of their solutions
  • Develop real-time applications using JavaScript and HTML5
  • Develop our web-based application, real-time widgets and real-time data analytics
  • Build sophisticated analytic models of customer behaviour and activity
  • Work with and contribute improvements to relevant open source software projects
  • Work with a range of technologies, including Python, JavaScript, node.js and MongoDB

Requirements: Good experience of software development, especially in a web environment. Strong practical experience of programming with JavaScript and associated web technologies, or with analytics. Prior experience with Python would be an advantage. Will probably have taken a degree with a strong software element.
