Full Stack Developer


RATE: Salary up to £50k + bonus

We are looking for an experienced full stack developer to join our dynamic development team. We might just be Oxfordshire’s best-kept secret, in a beautiful location with a wide range of innovative and challenging projects for some brilliant clients (e.g. BMW, Barclays, Rolls-Royce and InterContinental Hotels). We work in a forward-thinking Agile development environment with the latest technologies and processes, and we’re looking for a talented developer to join us.

You’ll have 4+ years of commercial experience, working in projects on both front end (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, jQuery) and back end (Ruby on Rails, Linux, Heroku, PostgreSQL) and though you may have a natural leaning towards one or the other, you will be passionate about using and extending your skills across the whole development platform.

Your personality is important to us too. You’ll be professional, assertive and well-organised with the ability to prioritise, delegate and multi-task under pressure. A sense of humour and a sense of perspective would be hugely beneficial too. As would a love of cake.

We are relatively small company (20 Juicers) and all parts of the business work closely together, so experience of working within a similar production/agency background would be very beneficial.

Skills required:

  • An excellent understanding of HTML, CSS, JavaScript, jQuery and associated front-end technologies and tools, including experience with AngularJS, React or similar frameworks
  • An excellent understanding of Ruby on Rails, Linux, Heroku, AWS and associated back end tools and technologies
  • A solid understanding of networking tools and technologies such as SSH and VPN
  • Proven experience of testing approaches and tools like RSpec and Cucumber
  • A strong understanding of mobile web development, debugging and optimisation (Native app development an advantage)
  • Solid experience of Git for version control
  • An excellent understanding of database technologies, object-orientated programming and design patterns (PostGreSQL a distinct advantage)
  • Conscientious and team focused, happy with peer review and pair programming.
