Reference 30473

A Pentasia client is on the the lookout for a full stack engineer to help work on a number of internal tools across their entire company. If you can help make our business users’ day to day lives better - then we'd like to hear from you!

Your profile should look like:

  • Minimum 3 years expertise in building web applications with varied languages and technology stacks
  • Experience in building solutions from scratch with only minimal requirements to begin with
  • A keen eye for user interfaces and an instinct for creating a good user experience
  • 2+ years writing raw SQL beyond just simple select statements
  • Familiarity with unit/integration testing
  • Good interpersonal skills and a great team attitude
  • The ability to quickly learn new things and adapt

What we'd love to see (in an ideal world):

  • Experience with browser based testing e.g. Selenium, Watir, Windmill
  • 2+ years experience with PHP and/or Java based tech. The existing Backoffice and other components are built in PHP and our backend services are all in Java and Scala. Therefore some experience of either would be great, both would be fantastic but not essential nor crucial.
  • Familiarity with writing business intelligence or analytics applications

Company Approach & Culture:

  • A small company, can-do ethos
  • Focus on getting stuff done, not on process or management hierarchy
  • A distributed workforce but regular communications
  • Sharing expertise and learning from others to keep improving as a team
  • A flexible working schedule
  • Self management and working autonomy, no micro management
  • Life happens, therefore there is no monitoring of checking in/out - we only ask you communicate.

The job at hand:

  • %100 Remote work
  • Approaching and working closely with people from every business function
  • Agreeing with business and technical staff on what solutions are needed
  • Providing a mixture of tools from small “glue” tools to full blown applications as required
  • Diagnosing and fixing production issues
  • Taking part in code reviews
  • Not being phased by the unique variation of things that need doing in a small growing company
  • Being proactive and not just waiting to be told the next thing to do
  • Finding better ways that we can get things done
