We need a motivated programmer who can learn quickly, works well as part of a team, and enjoys the challenge of working on varied projects in a busy client agency.
You should have an understanding of the web stack from top to bottom, and a natural instinct for practical problem-solving. You should be keen to contribute to the overall technical strategy and approach of the business.
You should be able to unpack client requirements and make decisions about how best to implement them. You should be able to motivate and guide a team of less experienced developers through discussions of best practices, practical advice and code reviews.
For the foreseeable future, this will be a remote role due to the current ongoing situation, with the option of returning fully or partly to a Brighton office-based environment when it is safe to do so. We may consider exceptional fully-remote candidates located elsewhere in the UK.
Below is a list of core technologies and skills we use at DabApps. We are not expecting any candidate to have experience or knowledge in all of these areas. What we are looking for is the ability and desire to learn the areas you don't have, when and if required.
- Django REST framework
- Web application design and architecture
- Technical strategy
- React Native
- Relational databases - MySQL and PostgreSQL
- Linux server administration
- Heroku platform
- Mac or Linux desktop experience
- Familiarity with working at the command line
- Agile development
We're looking for a candidate with the technical skills we need, who is also flexible enough to fit into the company and grow with us. We need someone with strong ethical values, who thrives on producing results, can adapt to new challenges, and enjoys learning along the way.
The role will be varied and you will need excellent prioritisation and decision making skills. You will need to be able to work effectively in a team-based agile environment, as well as playing a part in the growth and direction of the company as a whole.
If you’re interested in this role and have relevant skills and experience, please consider applying even if your background doesn’t perfectly match our ideal credentials. We are committed to diversity and especially encourage members of underrepresented communities to apply.
