We're looking for a senior developer to join our team, reporting to the head of software development.
You'll be a senior developer in one of our small technical teams, overseeing the creation of significant new features on the Flourish platform. You will :
This is a thoroughly hands-on development role : most of your time will be spent working with code. But you will also mentor and manage other developers and work closely with the product team.
This role is mostly focused on the Flourish platform rather than the visualization templates, which are developed separately.
You are an experienced developer who enjoys working collaboratively and loves to learn new things. You care deeply about the quality of your work and are thoughtful about how to improve both what you're doing and how the team works together.
You're happy to adopt existing conventions of the codebase.
Importantly, you're excited by Flourish and the opportunity to make it better. You're a friendly colleague and you work well in a close-knit team.
GitHub, CircleCI, Sentry. We don't expect you to have worked with all of these, but any you have are a plus.

And we're high-momentum, focused on delivering magical products that our users love. We socialise as a team at least once a month.
If we ask you to take this test and you are not selected, we will give you a £50 Amazon voucher to say thank you for your time.
Next there is an interview stage designed to be rigorous but friendly and collaborative. We'll ask you to do some pair-programming with us, to get a sense of how you communicate, but we don't do stressful whiteboard coding.
We also embrace fully remote staff, though ideally, we like the whole team to gather once a month for meetings and social events.
