Safeguarding Monitor · Dec 18th 2018
Headquarters: Nottingham, UK URL:
Safeguarding Monitor provide systems to schools, colleges and multi-academy trusts to help keep children safe - the work we do really makes a difference. We were established a year ago and were recently acquired by Impero, a market leader in online safety. We’re a remote UK-based team and are looking for multiple Ruby on Rails Engineers to join us.
We are first and foremost looking for developers who can demonstrate strong engineering principles, and whether you’ve been developing for one year or five we may have a role for you. We can offer you the technical challenges, high standards and opportunity to make a difference to our products. We have an exciting roadmap ahead and you can be part of that journey as we transition from a startup to a global product offering. Our team is growing in a way that will allow you to play to your strengths: enjoy maintenance and optimisation, data analysis, or building huge new features? There’ll be a fit for you.
Our platform is built exclusively in Ruby on Rails, and we’re working towards continuous delivery - we currently deploy something every day of the week. We do the majority of our work and daily communication through Slack, with regular conference calls, screen shares, and opportunities for pair programming. We run weekly sprints in an agile fashion, but don’t get bogged down in the process. Our roadmap and in-flight boards are managed with Trello, and code is peer reviewed regularly through Github. We’re running above 90% code coverage, with a test suite written in RSpec and continuous integration to run these tests and code quality metrics.
We believe in creating careers, not jobs. During your time with us you’ll receive regular, honest, helpful feedback. We’ll be looking for ways to grow your expertise, and we will provide opportunities for your professional development. Although we’re a remote team, we speak every day, and arrange regular meetings both by department and as a company.
