Our only boss is what our customer wants.

We value highly collaborative, hardworking people, who can deconstruct problems on the fly and talk to others as they do so, while being inventive, iterative and agile. We never want to reach a stage where you are not challenged daily – because it means we’re not going fast enough.

Key Skills:

• Have a Bachelors’ Degree or above in Computer Science / Math’s / Physics or similar from a leading University

• You will need to be proactive and bright, able to build effective systems quickly and correctly, act on your own initiative and help grow the team and both yours and our capabilities at considerable speed.

• You’ll need to be fluent in Java and Kotlin or in Swift and Objective-C - preferably all four.

• Excellent English communication skills, both written and verbal

• We’d like you to have a good working knowledge of app development, of computer science concepts, python, and some design expertise would be useful.
