Senior Developer — Lifestyle & Events App
London, Fitzrovia | Salary circa £60k + equity
We want to help the world experience more. We’re building a product that lets users get more of what the world has to offer. We want the world to REVL!
We’re doing it by organising and personalising the world’s events. We provide the data, the platform and the functionality to let users list their favourite interests, places, people and events.
REVL is your social life oracle.
The scale of this project and it’s potential application is immense and it’s all being built by our small team of outstanding engineers who work across the entire stack.
This is the team we’d like you to join.
Our values are clear and well communicated. We celebrate the wins and quickly discourage the stuff can build up resentment. We’re a professional company run by adults, we think positive and we always look to develop the careers of those who chose to join our endeavour.
Before we go on…
First and foremost we need you to be able to self manage and like that autonomy. Every working week is different, challenges here morph pretty quick. Being flexible and having a ‘let’s get this sh*t done’ attitude is what we need.
Python is our primary technology and significant experience with the Django framework is preferred, but deep familiarity with frameworks in other languages is good too.
Stuff we’d like
- API’s — we use Django Rest Framework and direct experience with this would be excellent
- Transforming various data sources to work with our data model — be it APIs, XML files, CSVs or something entirely custom
- Experience with Celery or other task queue technologies
- Building web views, front ends and widgets
- REACT would be nice
Our ops setup, experience of this stuff would be very useful.
- AWS — particular EC2, RDS, ELB, VPCs
- Ansible & Terraform
- Any formal security experience
It goes without saying too much that we expect you are very comfortable with the likes of Git, terminals and have a desire in producing something to be proud of! Are we in the right ball park?? Ok great. What more should you know…
Here’s why we think you’ll want to work with us
You’ll have huge levels of input into how the roadmap can be developed and improved.
You’ll be encouraged to try new things. We don’t want our team to limit themselves and we’re creating the environment that, whilst frenetic, supports you taking time to learn. As a lean team you’ll get to dip and dive into different challenges.
What about the perks?
Apart from free burritos and an amazing work culture, our salaries are top quarter market rate — there’s an equity package and a tech budget so you can pick your own kit.
But given what we do, we are also a hugely social company. Not just the normal regular team lunches and drinks after work — we do major stuff too. Everything from House Festival, Glastonbury and Taste of London — and we give our team regular free tickets to great events (and we’re always the first to hear about them too!).
