In the three and a half years since Brightbox started, we’ve built a solid reputation for our “Serious Rails Hosting” platform. We’ve spent the last twelve months building Brightbox Cloud our new cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service which is already making big waves. We’re now looking for an experienced software engineer to join our small but highly productive development team. This is an awesome opportunity to use your skills and experience to help shape our future products and direction in this exciting and fast growing industry.
You have an insatiable desire to understand things, to break them apart and to fix them. You are continuously looking for ways to improve things. You are enthusiastic about some technologies and vocalise your reasoned dislike for others. You have strong opinions and stand by them when it really matters, but are willing to compromise when it doesn’t. You are able to communicate your ideas succinctly with eloquence and clarity. You have probably contributed to some free software projects, and perhaps started your own. You don’t take yourself too seriously and are comfortable with others reviewing your work. You love what you do.
Like our systems, our teams are geographically distributed, communicating in real-time throughout the working day using our private Jabber conference or phone calls. We manage our work with Redmine, usually organising chunks of work into weekly sprints. We’re a lean organisation – you’ll have direct access to leadership as well as other teams. Our development, engineering and operations teams all work closely together which shortens the feedback loop and means we get things done better.
Remote, but ideally working within 2 hours of UTC.
circa £55k p.a. (depending on experience).
