🙆‍♀️ About us

We’re a market leading tech company that provides data on the fastest growing companies in the UK. We’re at a pretty exciting stage right now—we’ve built a profitable, high-growth business, with 120+ employees and an enviable client list. But we’re not done yet. We’re on a mission to become a global data company that helps every organisation discover and work better with ambitious, high-growth companies.

🥖 The role

 Our product engineering team works in tightly-knit squads that deliver a mixture of quick wins and larger scale updates. We need a great software engineer to help us deliver new and improved ways of accessing, storing, analysing, and presenting our data to make our product better than ever before – and ultimately drive our commercial success as a business.

Day-to-day your responsibilities might include:

🏆  Delivering quick wins: making quick improvements to the platform so we can make our users' work just a little bit easier

💭  Feature creation: building APIs to expose new datasets and creating new frontend components for features as we add them to the platform

👫  Working with the Product team: helping product managers and designers turn their ideas into reality, whilst prioritising usability and performance

Examples of the kind of projects could you be working on:

  • Working with our product team to make our current features like ‘Collections of companies’ & ‘People you know’ on the platform easier to find and use
  • Integrating the machine learning models we've built in-house to allow semantic search for companies
  • Handling performance & usability issues and helping to upgrade our tools to work with the data we have on the 10 million+ registered companies in the UK

👉 About you

There is no one size fits all for this role, but we’d expect you have at least 2 years of experience working as a software engineer in the industry.

Technical must haves:

  • Experience with both backend (such as Python, Ruby, PHP, node, etc.) and frontend web development (HTML, CSS, Javascript)
  • Familiarity with a Python web framework (like Django, flask or fastAPI) and a javascript framework (such as vue, React, Angular or Ember)

Great too (but not essential)

  • Understanding of some of the following: Django Rest Framework, PostgreSQL, Celery, Docker, NGINX, AWS, git or github.

Also, ideally you’ll be:

  • Detail-oriented – You are meticulous with a keen eye for detail, and know how to apply feedback to your work
  • Independent & proactive – You should be happy to take on small projects and run with them, but also know when to ask for a helping hand!
  • Natural problem-solver – You love getting deep into a problem & working hard to find the solution.

🕊️ Our offer

We're offering a competitive starting salary.

On top of this, we invest a lot in keeping our people happy and healthy! So as well as that, you'll also get:

🎓  Professional development: Ongoing training and development, and free books

🍰  A stake in the company: Substantial options scheme, so you can share in the growth that you help create

💻  The latest tech: We’ll provide you with all the tech you need to be productive (including a Mac!), whether you’re in the office or working from home

🌲  Health and wellness: Free counselling, wellbeing baskets, and healthy snacks

🎉  Events: Drinks every Friday, interesting talks from industry experts, company-wide parties and away days, plus regular team socials

🚄  Subsidised travel: Rail season ticket loan, free railcards, and a cycle to work scheme
