Apply for this job

We’re turning the estate agency industry on its head, rethinking the entire process with the customer at the heart. We’re bringing innovation and user-centric thinking into a traditionally offline journey, delicately weaving together the conveniences of a digital experience and the trust of meaningful human touchpoints.

If you are technologically minded and keen to succeed within a company that promotes personal development and the opportunity of being part of something bigger, then we have the role for you!

Requirements
We use PHP and Symfony. We’re also using AWS Lambda, SQS and Elasticsearch. We’re big believers in BDD and TDD; we use PHPUnit for unit and integration tests and Cypress for functional end-to-end tests. If we feel that a tool is not the right one for us, we can always consider switching to something else. When we say greenfield, we mean it.

We currently rely heavily on the following tools and technologies:

  • PHP (Symfony) for our backend application code
  • MySQL for persistent data storage
  • Elasticsearch for logging and monitoring
  • AWS Lambda for serverless computing
  • AWS SQS for our asynchronous message queue
  • AWS for most other infrastructure
  • React for our client-side applications
  • GitHub Actions for Continuous Integration

You should apply if you have:

  • 3+ years of experience working in a relevant software engineering role.
  • Knowledge of software design patterns and the principles of SOLID code.
  • A practical understanding of the basics of HTTP and you know a RESTful API when you see one.
  • Experience with TDD and/or BDD.
  • Superb communication skills and the ability to interact effectively with multidisciplinary teams.
  • A desire to develop new skills and use the best tools, learnings through experiments and metrics analysis.

More reasons to join us

  • Flexible working hours - remote working during lockdown, then remote working with 1 day per month in our modern office in Colchester
  • Initially 30 days holiday (inc bank holidays), additional day for each year of employment
  • Access to company wellbeing benefits and discounts
  • Access to training and development programmes
  • Competitive salary with performance-based bonus
