Graduate/Junior Developer

Posted 6 February by RecWorks Limited Easy Apply Ended

My client are based in the Old Street area and have a typical startup culture, although they are a more established company now. To start off with they develop cutting edge products in the social video space using a combination of lean and agile development practices. They recruit 'software craftsman' style developers, those with a genuine enthusiasm for constantly improving both software and software development processes. They are extremely keen on TDD and pair programming too, you can see from this that development is extremely highly regarded rather than the classic approach which can have time favoured over quality. One of the real unique selling points about them is that they have a unique system in which you can spend up to 20% of your time working on your own personal projects or investigating new technologies.

There are monthly bowling nights, weekly deliveries of muffins, beer, and fruit, an interdepartmental foosball contest, Xbox contests, film nights, occasional poker nights and an annual company festival.
