Head-twisting challenges, family-friendly, and dedicated to being the best.
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 just ask about our summer parties. You’ll need a passport.Check jobs board
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.
On top of these things, we’re also dedicated to building on our innovative working culture. We sit in cross-functional teams, collabroate closely with non-tech folk and run hackathons and level up sessions to drive innovation continuously, right across the business.
Hackathons are part of Simply Business’s DNA, and in 2017, we held our biggest one yet, as cross-functional teams from around the business set about creating something better for our customers, our culture, and the world at large.
From a Google Home action that benefits charity, to an online customer network, nothing was off limits. Don’t believe us? One set of ambitious hackers even set about flying a drone with an electric guitar. See how they – and the rest of our teams – got on in our video.
There’s a lot going on, but current projects include:
Seedy Seedy is our in-house CMS. Custom-built, it’s essentially a hybrid of mark-down, Sinatra and TDD. It’s 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 perfecting it.
Aerie We’ve completely overhauled our architecture to embed data into the heart of everything we do. Using the latest approaches in event streaming, we’re building a brand new 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, and we’ve won several awards for the work so far.
