  • Geofencing platform that has supported innovative location-based campaigns worldwide.
  • Play a pivotal part in the companies tech offering, work with React, Ruby, AWS.
  • Build a small team of full-stack developers.

A really cool company that is basically the Pokémon GO of branded content is getting some huge success due to their impressive relationships, working with one of the biggest names in boxing, a well-known global pop star, a hugely successful TV show and many more; they are in need of a Senior Developer or a CTO to work on their new platform for campaign work. This role boasts a big part for their growth, you are expected to be hands-on to begin with, but as you grow the team you can start to move towards management (if you wish).

What experience you’ll need

  • React (or similar front-end framework, such as Angular or Vue).
  • Ruby / Rails (or similar back-end language / framework).
  • Modern JavaScript, such as ES6.
  • CSS3 and pre-processors such as LESS and SASS.
  • Git (or equivalent VCS).
  • Amazon Web Services would be desirable
  • Docker is advantageous
  • Semaphore CI (or equivalent, such as Travis or Jenkins) would be a bonus
  • Agile and continuous deployment also desirable.
  • Developing enterprise software ideally but not essential.
  • An interest in eventually growing a team.
  • Good communication skills.

What you’ll be doing

You will be the main developer working with the team to expand and maintain the current React/Ruby on-Rails platform. You will provide support in the production of campaigns using the CMS working with the sales team to gather new requirements and see them through to completion. On a weekly basis you will write and document code on the platform, adding new features across the CMS and application, writing unit tests to test your code. With other developers being a part of the company you will participate in code reviews, using Github to pull request feature. As it’s all on cloud you must deploy code to AWS, help maintain the Cloudformation stack. You work will be done in sprints, which is for you to take ownership of. Inheriting this code-base is a big deal, so you must be up to the challenge on taking a globally used platform and keeping the reputation together. If something faults it is up to you to fix it. It is expected that you are inspired to see what else you can do to improve the stack, productivity and UI offering.  

What you’ll get in return for your talents

It’s a great time to join this company with a brilliant sales pipeline and plenty of growth. Not only will you be at the top of the development with the chance to grow a talented team but you will have the flexibility to do so.
