Senior Full Stack Developer

Location : Central London
Type : Permanent/Full-time

Development Team Overview

BroadbandChoices.co.uk has a fun, fast paced and energetic culture. We follow the LEAN methodology, embrace ‘no-estimates’ and employ a highly skilled team of full stack Senior Developers. We adopt new technology and systemically remove technical debt. We focus on working software delivered to end users as our measure for success. We apply cutting edge KPI driven development practices while still upholding the principles of the Agile Manifesto and Test Driven Development practices.

We have ambitious plans for our price comparison products both improving our current online experiences and for new product verticals. We work to a flat structured team removing ego and status to quickly iterate, test, deploy and learn from our ideas. Our Developers build compelling user journeys and use technology to solve real comparison problems for our customers.

We are proud of our Codebase and Products and passionately believe in our technology as the continued driver to our company’s growth. We believe that great people are at the centre of our continued success.

Your role in the Dev Team

As a Developer in our Team you will be confident working anywhere in the dev stack. We look for entrepreneurial spirit, surrounding you with skilled and articulate technical peers to bounce ideas off. Our team encompasses integrated UX and Product specialist roles. The Team is constantly challenged to build the best products. You should have a passion for building sites that solve real problems for a user.

You should be an articulate, passionate and driven individual. You need to be open to new approaches and feel comfortable supporting your opinions to your peers. You are friendly, approachable and intelligent.

You are a technologist, a people person, and a professional and passionate about writing great code to solve complex problems and have an active role and say in growing the business.

You will report to the Technical Lead.

Our code

Mostly MVC.NET with some other technologies used where applicable. We host on AWS (VPC) and deploy several times daily through CI/CD. DevOps are handled on team. Our code base is thoroughly tested at 6 different levels including UI/HTML and JavaScript with minimal manual regression testing required. We use Angular.js and Underscore to perform comparison in real time on the client’s browser. Our site is localised for 3 different territories. We use NoSQL data stores and leverage a service orientated architecture. Code is kept up to date and technical debt prioritised and removed. We use Git for source control and don’t allow feature branches! We are working on a development blog which will start raising the profile on some of these successes. We use every means possible to keep our developers focused on improving the product and not caught up in code spaghetti.

The keyword bit… Useful skills

  • Full stack developer
  • Advanced experience with TDD, BDD and SOLID principles
  • Advanced experience implementing Continuous Integration (TeamCity or similar)
  • Advanced experience of C# and the MVC framework
  • Experience with front end JavaScript technologies (Angualar.JS and JQuery)
  • Proven experience in customer facing web sites
  • Good working knowledge of IOC and ORM systems
  • Strong communication skills
  • Pragmatic approach and fast delivery of product
  • Kanban or Scrum or LEAN experience
  • Desirable - Experience with Jasmine JS Unit testing
  • Desirable - Knowledge of NoSQL databases

The Company

You spend around eight hours a day using digital devices, and fork out over £1,500 every year on the digital market - broadband connections, mobile tariffs, upgrades and so on - so it makes sense to do your homework before you sign up to any costly services. BUT doing your homework takes time and, to many of us, is frankly, pretty dull.

That is where we come in.

The Decision Technologies mission is to be the destination for finding people the best communications and entertainment.

Our ambitions are two-fold:

Firstly, we have a crucial role in helping our customers make the most of their digital lives, from connectivity to entertainment packages and data management, it should be personalised and simple so you find the right solutions for you.

Secondly, we connect our customers with service and hardware providers. We pride ourselves on introducing the right customers, at the right price. We’ve helped our customers to save hundreds of millions of pounds (or euros for our Spanish and German customers) - a fact we are pretty proud of.

We are obsessed with performance, we want to match every single customer with the right provider, and, as we only get paid if our matches work we have an extra incentive to get it right, every time.

We have three brands based in our Holborn office; broadbandchoices which deals with the UK market, comparaiso which is our Spanish website and schlaubi which is our German website.

Why work for Decision Tech?

This is a fantastic opportunity that would suit someone who wants to drive their career forward and develop quickly as the business, and team, grows.

We believe that our great team is at the centre of our continued success. We work hard to get the right people on board and have created an exceptional culture in which you can flourish. We celebrate fresh ideas, enthusiasm and motivation – and seek staff who will bring that dynamic and more.

Package/Benefits:

25 days holiday per year + bank holidays
Free breakfast
Company Pension scheme
Paid day off for your birthday
Fruit in the office
Annual season ticket loan
Subsidised Gym membership
Free massages
Child Care voucher scheme
Monthly Get Togethers

Dear recruiters,

Thanks so much for checking out our vacancies page. While we do work with recruitment agencies, and appreciate all the amazing staff they have helped us to find, we are VERY particular about who we work with.


Here are our rules, and while we like to break the rules as much as the next revolutionary business, there will be no deviating from THESE rules...none:

Rule 1: We are entirely pro-active in our agency selection - every single agency and person we work with is either already known to us, or someone who comes with a personal introduction from people we know and trust.

Rule 2: To say we are not fans of receiving cold calls from people who have disregarded rule 1 is an understatement. You can email us, and we promise we’ll read it, but….

Rule 3: If you have emailed us, and we are interested, we'll certainly be in touch. If you don't hear back, then on this occasion our paths will not be crossing.

Thanks
Decision Tech
