The software that we are building solves business problems for companies in a variety of industries including but not limited to eCommerce, warehouses, retail buying departments, photography studios, supply chain companies, government services.

We like to treat our staff and take retreats and trips every year. We have a fantastic Central London office but if you work better remotely, this is an option.

Annual leave? We don’t track it. We encourage you to take as much time off as you need to feel refreshed and focused to create the best code! Also, we offer an annual performance-based bonus.

We are growing significantly and this is the perfect opportunity for a lead developer to join our organisation and shape the way we move forward and your own career. Please send a copy of your CV and GitHub to Abbie or James.
