Become a Craftsperson

Our craftspeople are practitioners, teachers, mentors, and leaders. We will assess your expertise in the following areas to see if you are a fit for us, this will also help you understand if we are a fit for you.

Practices

We are practitioners of Agile/Lean processes and Extreme Programming Practices, specifically TDD, CI, and Simple Design. We prefer to work in a DevOps culture and value Continuous Deployment/Delivery. We love automation, and value the tools that allow us to automate. We know how to work in an Agile team and can help mentor teams to adopt these processes and practices.

Design and Architecture

Our Craftspeople have a great appreciation of Software Design both at macro and micro levels. We naturally follow Clean Code principles. We understand architectural concerns relating to performance, security, logging, monitoring, and operations. We know the major architectural patterns including Microservices, Hexagonal, Event Sourcing, and CQRS - and their suitability to particular scenarios.

Technology platforms

Although we are always exploring different technologies, currently, the three main technology platforms we use are JVM (Java, Clojure, Scala), .Net (C#, F#), and NodeJS. Most of our projects use amazon AWS or Azure as a cloud solution. We expect a solid experience in at least one of the languages we use and familiarity with cloud solutions. We expect our Craftspeople to have a good grasp of front-end technologies based on HTML, CSS, and Javascript.

Personality

Good communication skills essential to our work. We need to be able to present our opinions and ideas in a clear, collaborative, respectful and effective manner. We have strong desire to build well-crafted software, constantly improve ourselves, and to help others do the same. We are constantly learning and apply many different approaches to our learning. We lead by example and we are always keen to explore and work with different technologies.

What you'll get

Our product is our people. We firmly belive that your job and associated benefits should allow you to flourish both personally and professionally.

Learning and Development

Conferences

5 days of conference budget per year, including T&L and tickets, covered by us. We’ll pay for you as well, so no need to use your holiday days.

Training

No fixed training budget. So long as the course is relevant for the company and you'll do a lightning talk on the subject, we’re happy to pay for it.

Books

Found something interesting to read that doesn’t already live in our office or digital library? We’ll cover book expenses - and ask to read it after you as well!

You’ll be working alongside Craftspeople who share your passion for learning, whether that’s on a client project or contributing to our internal projects.

Transparency

All of our salaries and finances are available to everyone from day one. Nothing to hide here.

Autonomy

Got an idea? Form an Initiative Circle, take ownership, run with it and see it through to delivery.

We offer 22 holiday days (increasing to 25 over time), in addition to national holidays. We’re also flexible with how our people manage their time. Need to work from home? No problem.
