We aren’t looking for a ‘Rock Star’ or a ‘Ninja’. We aren’t looking for a ‘Super Star Developer’ either. We want a team player; someone who is tenacious about getting things done as part of a team in an environment that expects creativity and quality delivery. Be a rebel but be part of our rebel alliance.

Our Agile development team are remote workers (home-based in the UK) who maintain a great team-working ethic with regular comms both electronically and visually. So you’ll be happy working remotely without ever feeling…well, remote.
