Engineering is a core part of who we are. You will work with a carefully selected team of ex-Google, VMware, ThoughtWorks, Facebook and Atlassian engineers among others. The team takes pride in its focus on engineering fundamentals. We strive to use the most appropriate tools for the tasks at hand and strike a measured balance between getting things done and long term maintainability. The team is tight, with no big egos, and welcomes engineers to come and join in on the adventure. Engineers frequently host sessions where a new idea or software engineering practice is discussed — this ensures that everyone in the team is constantly learning.
We work hard to get our fundamentals right across the business. Consequently, the frontend code base is constantly being improved and optimised so new features can be implemented easily. We also have a flat structure where engineers are invited to comment on the direction their peers are taking on features. When a new feature is being built, engineers review each other’s code; this ensures that knowledge is shared and it doesn’t need to be reworked.
