We Are Hiring: A Junior Full Stack Developer
Airship builds products that serve the best and most exciting brands in the UK hospitality industry - think Revolution, Byron, The Alchemist, Bella Italia, Turtle Bay, Franco Manca, Zizzi and many more.
We have a relaxed and flexible workplace ethos and we’re looking for two Full-stack Developers (one junior and one mid/senior) to join our small team (circa 50 people).
Our engineering team are also proud to be the winners of the UK Dev Awards “Best Dev Team of the Year” 2021. Come and join us!
You’ll love writing code and deeply care about learning your craft as well as contributing to the success of our products.
A graduate degree is not a necessity. We welcome applications from self-taught developers and graduates alike. We know that women and people from minorities are less likely to apply if they don’t meet 100% of the criteria and we encourage people from underrepresented groups to apply.
Airship and Toggle (our two key products) are both built with a Laravel powered back-end. Front-ends are built in VueJs/NuxtJs, rendered by NodeJS servers. We have both REST and GraphQL APIs which are used by both our own teams and external integration partners who extend and services via our APIs. We run a mixture of both our own private cloud hosting infrastructure and public cloud (AWS), and push and pull large amounts of data using Node-RED.
Airship, a guest engagement and CRM platform, stores around 20 million lines of guest data on behalf of our customers, while Toggle (a hospitality commerce platform) has been used to sell over £21 million worth of gift cards. We’re scaling fast and enjoying the challenge!
What to expect
Your role will kick off with mastering our overall product architectures and APIs, shadowing other developers and learning the ropes. You’ll drop into our sprint kick-offs and stand-ups so you have exposure to our processes and learn how we work and who we are.
Once you’re feeling confident and know your way around our products, you’ll start collaborating with the Product Development team to brainstorm solutions to engineering challenges.
You’ll help to modernise the codebase of our older product while taking full advantage of our newer progressive web app’s codebase to quickly prototype, iterate and release new features, working with other developers and creatives. Automated testing will be part of your game, and you’ll use your skills in unit and behavioural testing to help keep expanding our code coverage.
Bugs are bugs, and we’re not immune to them either. You’ll be quality-focussed, squashing the critical ones as they arise, assisting the Customer Success team with troubleshooting where necessary.
Benefits & culture
We have embraced a flexible, informal and collaborative working culture. We are largely an in-person team and we enjoy the collaboration that that brings. For the first 3 months you’ll be in the office at least 4 days a week, learning from the rest of the team. After that you’ll be in the office at least 3 days a week.
We work from the iconic Park Hill, right next to Sheffield Train station. We have views over the city, green spaces front and back and plenty of space.
We will also give you the time, space and budget to learn new technologies and further your own knowledge as a developer.
