We're hiring! Join us as a Full Stack Developer

Airship builds products that serve the best and most exciting brands in the UK hospitality industry - think Revolution, Byron, The Alchemist, Leon, Turtle Bay, Franco Manca, Zizzi and many more.

We have a relaxed and flexible workplace ethos and we’re looking for a Full Stack Developer to join our small team (circa 30 people), with the option to work remotely or from our offices.

Our engineering team are also proud to be the 2021 winners of the UK Dev Awards “Best Dev Team of the Year”. Come and join us!

Our technology

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 also run our own private cloud hosting infrastructure.

Airship, a guest engagement and CRM platform, stores around 14 million lines of guest data on behalf of our customers, while Toggle (a hospitality commerce platform) has been used to sell over £9.5 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’ve found your feet 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 PWA’s codebase to quickly prototype, iterate and release new features, working alongside 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.


About you

You’ll love writing code and deeply care about learning your craft as well as contributing to the success of our products You’ll no doubt have some of your own personal and professional projects under your belt to show off your technical interests and proven track record, and probably be somewhat obsessed with writing readable, secure, accessible, testable, standards-compliant code.

Our engineering team generally works on web based applications, so you’ll need to be very familiar with HTML, CSS, MySQL, Javascript and PHP. Experience in NodeJS, Laravel, Vue.js or React would be useful too. You will also be very familiar with APIs, including REST, SOAP and GraphQL.

A graduate degree is not a necessity. We welcome applications from self-taught developers and graduates alike.

Benefits & culture

We have embraced a flexible, remote working culture, so pick and choose where you work, with our only preference being that you’re somewhere in the UK, so that we still have the opportunity for some real-life meet-ups now and again.

If you are coming into the office, 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.

We equip everyone with a Macbook or development machine of your choice.

There is an EMI share options scheme in place for employees, so our gain is your gain too.

Where can I find more information?

The best place to start is by checking us out on our two product websites:
