Senior Ruby on Rails Developer - UK

We are looking for individuals committed to learning more of their trade, and supporting each other’s growth in the process. We still have a startup-like culture of openness to ideas and opportunities for talent to be put to good use… plus a market-tested and profitable product line.

You will join around 80 of us, based in comfortable, freshly renovated offices located in a conservation area in Hampshire. Trains to Chichester, Southampton, Brighton and London are a 5 minute walk away, and we are also a 15 minute walk to the sea. We’ve got all the usual suspects; breakout areas, a games room and free on-site employee parking. And plenty of the more unusual suspects; a sizable garden, fitness suite, a plethora of musical instruments, modern kitchens, a host of the latest gadgets, opportunities for sporting enthusiasts, copious nerf guns and much more. Plus a 1Gbps fibre connection… we take our technology very seriously!
