Cambridge, United Kingdom
Job Type


Location – Cambridge

Start: ASAP
Vacancies: One position available
Type: Full time, permanent
Salary: £40-£60k

What we are looking for:

We're looking for full stack developers at junior and senior levels who can find pragmatic solutions to difficult problems. You may have worked in both backend and frontend roles, but enjoy working and learning across the stack. You know how to keep track of technical debt and write sensible tests to enable yourself and other developers to refactor with confidence. Crucially, you really know how to manage a database and create business logic and an API on top of it in Javascript, but aren't afraid to roll up your sleeves and learn something new.

We have a small-team philosophy and set the bar high: fewer, high-quality developers and software engineers can achieve far better results than a larger team of average developers. You'll be glad to know good developers will be reviewing your code, and that you won't be carrying weaker colleagues with your hard work.


  • Strong Javascript skills (we use ES6 on Node.js).
  • Experience with Vue, React or similar (we're leaning towards Vue).
  • Experience building REST APIs which can be consumed by the front-end.
  • Clean, semantic HTML.
  • Git (we use GitHub heavily).
  • An analytical, problem-solving mind.
  • Ability to communicate well with the wider team

Bonus Points:

  • Experience working with either MLab or Atlas hosted instances of MongoDB
  • Modern CSS, including flexbox, grid, animations and media queries (we use SASS).
  • Use of API authentication layers such as Kong
  • Testing and linting: Jsamine, Mocha, etc.


  • 20 days leave which increases to 25 days after first year
  • 3% employer contribution to pension, increasing to 4% in 2019
  • Courses / training where an employee wants it or needs it for personal development.
  • Plenty of fruit and snacks in the office, with great coffee too
  • Awesome people and Friday office drinks
