About you

You’re a developer. You’re awesome. You’ve just joined us, and as part of our growing engineering team, your days are filled with writing beautiful code, drinking delicious coffee, and making new gif emojis for Slack.

You build interactive products, and websites that people love. You have an eye for the finest details, and you’re just as happy nerding out in a code review as you are writing a fresh and crispy-clean API.

You’re not fluent in all the fresh-hotness of The Frameworks of Tomorrow's Stack™, but you’re not scared because you have a natural curiosity to try things out – just because.

You’re able to make calculated decisions about what tools to use based on conversations with clients, and your excellent project managers; working with your colleagues you scope out a project estimate, a sprint, and then the plan for architecting the solution. You’re a productivity god. After work you join some of your colleagues at yoga, or at a pub for a beer, where maybe you drink a cocktail because the Shoreditch craft-gin scene is pretty great. You go home and sleep, warm and cosy in the bed you made for yourself.

Tomorrow you wake up, refreshed and already thinking about new architectures and techniques, and you just. flipping. love. the idea of developing highly functional (yet very beautiful), data-rich web applications with a hyper-clean and focussed UI. #bullshit-bingo

Knowing tech like you do, you're excited by the future of the web and what lies ahead with advances in technologies like React, GraphQL, and Node, and you cannot wait to tell somebody.
