Our ideal candidate will be comfortable presenting to an audience, as you’ll work with the software engineering team to lead development best-practices and mentor your colleagues, as well as occasionally assisting in business development.

As part of your role you’ll be working on green-field projects, while researching new techniques, and working with new APIs. You’ll also work to maintain our existing software and systems, manage our infrastructure.

We support all our staff by providing training, conference tickets, and a work environment which encourages best practices.

You’ll be part of our fully-remote development team, and you’ll be provided with brand new, state-of-the-art hardware.

  • We develop a personal training plan for each employee, and we provide everyone with their own training and conference budget.

Application Process

Our application process is typically made up of three parts:

  • An informal chat over a coffee with our Technical Director; we will want to get to know you better, swap some stories, and try to understand your motivation and whether we can help you achieve your goals.
  • A small test piece of work in collaboration with our team; you’ll join us in Slack, and be able to chat with us, ask questions, and get to know the wider team.
  • A more formal interview, again with the Technical Director, and also one of the other directors at Giant.
