How we help our customers

Fospha are a fast growing, friendly team trusted to deliver real impact to businesses wanting to harness their data and optimise their marketing. We use the power of AI to drive multi-touch attribution modelling to provide marketers with an understanding of the end-to-end customer journey, in order to optimise their cost of customer acquisition and lifetime value.

We are very well funded and count many FTSE 100 companies and high growth start-ups as our clients. Our marketing analytics product is used in the real world to solve real problems. We are attracting interest from engineers that want to experiment with and build the next version of our platform. Our prototypes and proof of concepts that will soon hit production will utilise more technologies such as Scala and Kafka to further process and enrich real-time algorithms which are truly disrupting the industries we target, we will do this both through our enriched data and our client’s own eco systems.

We currently have a very robust application suite that evolves with each new hire, we value security and data compliance to the highest possible standards. Our clients really value these things which is why we are taking a steady approach to building a brand new system from the ground up to eventually supersede it over the next 18-24 months.

The Role

We can sponsor a visa if required.

Our customers expect the highest levels of security for their data, our main application suite is built around Java and SQL, this role involves working on many proof of concepts and cutting edge prototype systems through to production over the next couple of years. Your involvement will cover all parts of planning, designing, explaining, testing, implementing, deploying and supporting our solutions. You will also get to heavily influence best practice (CI/CD, testing etc) for the entire dev team as we scale.

  • Our main application suite is built in Java with Spring, along with SQL. We are happy to consider candidates with experience in other languages, so long as you believe you can work comfortably within a JVM
  • Be data aware, and knowledgeable about API security
  • Management of own work and communication with clients

Looking to the future:

  • Build an environment where data science deployments can happen in a unified way – we’re not there yet but the next engineering hire will play a pivotal role
  • Build more enterprise integrations around processing for our platforms
  • Our backend is built mostly in Java but we have also utilised Scala over the last couple of years and moving forward we will also look to bring in more additions such as NoSQL database like Cassandra, MongoDB, and Elasticsearch
