PROJECT CHALLENGES

They are currently looking for a hands on Team Lead who has a strong technical background in either Java or JavaScript. You will lead a team of highly experienced cross-skilled developers. They tend to recruit ‘software craftsman’ style engineers, those with a genuine enthusiasm for constantly improving both software and software development processes.

They are looking for someone who is enthusiastic about both technical practices and incremental product delivery. In this role you will be using the extreme programming methodology in a business built around Agile and “Lean Startup” philosophies.

You will be responsible for ensuring that all aspects of product development are working smoothly and effectively, this includes collaborating on product direction and working with their major partners to ensure incremental value is delivered to their customers and that there is a shared longer term vision in place.

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.

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 predominantly use Java and JavaScript across their teams. A more detailed list of their tech stack is as follows: 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+)

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.
