Job description



The company:

Legal & General are a leading financial services company in the midst of major positive digital change. They have made the most of the thriving local tech scene and have a significant developer presence in their Hove Park office.

They have recruited people from smaller cutting edge businesses across Brighton, are premier sponsors of the Brighton Digital Festival this year, and are now expanding their development team.

The roles:

The L&G digital team are recruiting multiple Front End Developers with a focus on modern JavaScript frameworks and effective software development practices. The 'My Account' team build, maintain and continuously improve their core customer self-service platform. It's challenging work; it's used by millions of people, and is central to the company's digital strategy.

Built in Angular and supported by Amazon EC2 infrastructure, the team utilise and champion the latest agile technical practices; TDD, CI/CD, pair programming, refactoring, automated containers and emergent design are all in play.

They are given free rein to investigate and propose new open source technologies that could benefit the platform. There's a real buzz in the team at the moment, and they are now looking to bring in some new local talent. There are multiple positions, at mid- and senior level.

What you'll need to succeed:

You will have demonstrable experience of working with modern JavaScript in a delivery focused team. The team work with Angular, but their infrastructure means they can play with new technologies. Any exposure to other libraries or frameworks (React, Vue, Node etc) will be beneficial.

Just because L&G are a large and well established business, it doesn't mean that they only want to see applications from people that work in large corporates or with Financial Services experience. They value innovative thinkers that are passionate about technology, and recognise that Brighton is full of talented coders working in smaller organisations.

What you'll get in return:

A very competitive salary, an annual bonus scheme, a brilliant pension plan, a generous holiday allowance and excellent flexible benefits.

Flexible and remote working options are in place, and they look to promote from within before bringing new people in to the business. L&G are pouring resources in to their digital offering at the moment, and joining the team now will offer incredible career progression opportunities.

Job description

At bluespot we've created a new kind of web-development consultancy. We value honesty, transparency and open communication and strive to bake these values into everything we do.

About bluespot:

  • Employee owned business where the team are the shareholders

The tech

We would like to talk to people experienced in any technologies/languages, but at the moment our go-to server stack is Ruby and Ruby on Rails. We occasionally reach for Node.js where appropriate.

We love React and Redux in the browser and find React Native makes us incredibly productive when creating native apps.

We favour deploying to Heroku and enjoy its tight integration with Git and GitHub.

Our approach

We work using a simple but powerful agile methodology that encourages collaboration, delivery, reflection and improvement. Each week, we plan and deliver completed features to our clients, with our aim always to have teams working together, not in silos or staggered across iterations.

Developers at bluespot hold weekly (or even more frequent) face to face meetings with clients where they demo the iteration's work, give advice, and talk through plans for the future of the project.

When not on a client project, our developers might be working on internal products, joining chats with potential clients, contributing to open source projects, writing blog posts, or learning about anything else new that takes their fancy.

Job description

We are looking for someone to solve complex data scalability challenges and build out our data engineering function from scratch

Octopus Energy is a tech-focused energy supplier for the UK market and we’re looking for an experienced Data Engineer to work closely with our Data Science and Development teams.

We're building a modern, event-driven platform for interacting with both consumers (via the web, mobile and smart-meters) and the industry (eg data flows, consumption forecasting, trading on the wholesale market).

This is a rare opportunity to use technology to help fight climate change through helping the UK to use green technology and renewable energy sources.

As our customer base grows exponentially so do our datasets. We’re building a modern, functional data platform that can harness this data and use it to improve our customer experience and boost the efficiency of our business. This is a unique opportunity to solve complex large-scale data scalability challenges that come with implementing a new environment into production. You will be given the autonomy to make important technical decisions and be given the authority to build out the Data Engineering team. If you are looking to make a real impact in a fast growing company and step up into a lead position then this is the role for you.

Why you should work for us

  • We have difficult technical problems to solve. With the advent of smart meters, we'll soon be processing millions of meter readings a day. We need the right technology in place to handle this smoothly as well as feeding data into analysis and machine learning pipelines.
  • Engineering standards are high. We pair program, thoroughly review and test code before it deploys and maintain fast, high-value test suites. We have weekly tech talks, monthly blitz-days (eg sharpening our internal tools, upgrading dependencies), host our own Hackathons and can often be found at tech meet-ups and conferences.
  • You'll be working for a company that’s fighting climate change. Our parent company is the largest investor in solar generation in the UK, and are funding wind and anaerobic digestion. As a supplier, we're helping people to use greener technology and renewable energy, all helping move the UK towards a lower carbon future.
  • We are leading the industry in data and innovation. We recently launched the UK’s first dynamic time of use tariff, the Agile Octopus and are working on projects in electric vehicles, home batteries, smart charging and smart meters.

Our technology

On the server-side, we mainly use Python. Most of our websites are powered by Django and the Django-REST-framework. Our data science team works with the Python Data Analytics stack (Pandas, numpy, scipy, scikit-learn) for analysis, forecasting and machine learning. We use Celery, RabbitMQ, SQS and Airflow for background processing and data pipelines.

We use AWS heavily, employing most of the "Hashistack" (eg Packer, Consul, Terraform) as part of a continuous deployment pipeline. See, for example, Django, ELB health checks and continuous delivery.

What we’re looking for

  • Experience administering SQL databases (ideally Postgres)
  • Competent in building optimised and efficient SQL queries to extract data
  • Advanced Software Engineering experience in Python
  • Extensive experience working with medium to large datasets using the AWS toolset
  • Hands-on use of workflow management frameworks (e.g. Airflow, Luigi, Apache NiFi)
  • Exposure to medium to large data processing and querying tools (e.g. Spark, AWS Athena or Presto, Hadoop, ELK etc)
  • Experience with data lake/warehouse and data pipeline design
  • Passion for solving complex technical challenges using data
  • £30k - 45k
