Join the Simply Business tech team

If you're smart, passionate about technology and enjoy solving complex technical challenges, we'd like to meet you.

Our technology team isn't just award-winning, it's at the heart of our strategy as a brand and business. So we invest in our teams and working culture, building a company that talented people want to join and work with. We're smart-working, so location and flexible working hours are a given, and we regularly fund training, conference tickets and all sorts of personal development plans.

Our hackathons are legendary and so are our summer parties.

Our approach to technology

Most of our applications are built with Ruby and Ruby on Rails, Python, Scala, HAML, SCSS, JavaScript, CoffeeScript and some Go. They sit on top of different databases like MongoDB, Redis, MySQL, Spark and ElasticSearch and testing frameworks like RSpec, Cucumber and Jasmine. Glueing all this together, we rely on RabbitMQ, Puppet and AWS, amongst others.

careers how we work

How you'll be working

  • Agile/Lean
  • Continuous delivery
  • Pair programming
  • Data-driven decision making
  • Active participation in open-source

On top of these things, we're also dedicated to building on our innovative working culture. We work in cross-functional teams, collaborate closely with non-tech folk and run hackathons and level up sessions to drive innovation continuously, right across the business.

Our London hackathon

We run all sorts of hacks throughout the year. They’re a big part of our learning and empowerment values and, of course, our passion for creating something better with technology.

Our last big London hackathon saw cross-functional teams working on everything from a Slack application that presents routes and options for walking meetings, to a 'business name generator' designed to help small businesses come up with creative names.

why simply business

What we are working on

There's always a lot going on to grow our digital platform.

We've built a modular content delivery platform in ReactJS to serve Simply Business content on the web. It's about empowering people across the company (including non-technical business teams) to get involved in pull requests, sign them off and even write code themselves. This is a big part of our culture, and we're constantly evolving it.

We're also adapting our architecture to embed data into the heart of everything we do. Using the latest approaches in event streaming, we're building a data pipeline that will elegantly support the analysis of both structured and semi-structured data in near real-time. It's providing rapid and intuitive customer insight for our decision makers, along with exciting machine-learning capabilities.
