PROJECT CHALLENGES

Their Reporting and Data infrastructure collects and processes over a terabyte of data each day, with 10x year on year growth, and even more growth expected this year. They work with a diverse set of technologies. They predominately use Java and JavaScript across their teams and are currently looking for Java developers to join the team, who are open to working across the full stack when needed.

Their tech stack includes the following technologies: Java 8, Dropwizard, ReactJS, Redux, Webpack, AWS, Terraform, CentOS, Terraform, Nagios, Graphite/Grafana, Postgres, Redis, Cassandra, Flume, Tomcat, Jetty, Junit, Mockito, Scalacheck, Selenium, Maven, Spring, Hibernate, Guice, Jackson, Jersey, Play/Scala, HTML5, Advanced vanilla JavaScript (ES6+)

Most of their infrastructure is hosted on AWS, and managed with Puppet.

COMPANY CULTURE

They are based in the Old Street area and have a typical startup culture, although they are a more established company now. To start off with they develop cutting edge products in the social video space using a combination of lean and agile development practices. They recruit ‘software craftsman’ style developers, those with a genuine enthusiasm for constantly improving both software and software development processes. They are extremely keen on TDD and pair programming too, you can see from this that development is extremely highly regarded rather than the classic approach which can have time favoured over quality. One of the real unique selling points about them is that they have a unique system in which you spend up to 20% of your time working on your own personal projects or investigating new technologies. Say you attend an event or read about something you are interested in, you can investigate it in more detail and use this time to see if it would add value.

There are monthly bowling nights, weekly deliveries of muffins, beer, and fruit, an interdepartmental foosball contest, Xbox contests, film nights, occasional poker nights and an annual company festival.
