Job description

Our team is made up of great engineers that work in an extremely collaborative environment.  We are very happy with remote working and are set-up with the right technology to make this seamless.  Our team comes from a wide range of backgrounds and experience.

What we offer engineers is the opportunity to experience solving challenges at real scale.  Our Awesome Ads platform deals with over half a billion views every month, our social platform has 5 million users and some of the stuff we're doing we can't even talk about here!

What do you MEAN by Full Stack?

What we are looking for is engineers who understand the relationship of each section of our stack and how your work can effect the different areas.  This is critical when dealing with the challenges that we face.  Our stack looks something like...but we are not limited to just these technologies.

Angular, Redux, Node.js, TypeScript, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, Cassandra, Docker, Kubernetes, Memcached, Redis, Kafka, AWS

You don't need to be an expert in both the front and the back end but you do need to be able to understand and explain the relationships between them and beyond.

Why should I join 

Well, our mission is pretty cool, we're making the internet safer for kids.  So you'll be coming to work armed with the knowledge that you are making the world a better place.  If that's not enough for you then we also offer a real opportunity for you to develop and grow your skills by working with an exceptionally talented team.  We look after our engineers and they all haver a voice in the design of the products (regardless of experience).

I'm not sure if this is right for me?

A few people sometimes get in touch with us directly beforehand.  If you have questions then please email so we can answer any queries that you have.

Remote does that work?

Our remote policy is pretty simple.  You do need to come to the office but we can work out exactly how that works for you.  Some people do 3 weeks away and come for a week.  We have accommodation that we can normally put you up in, so that takes care of any additional cost to you.  Other people work from home a few days per week.  It's really about managing being part of the team.  You do need to be within +/- 3 hours GMT and ideally +/- 2 hours.  You'll also need to be able to travel to the UK regularly.

Job description

We are a Software-as-a-Service start-up that powers the iOS and Android shopping apps of international retailers like House of Fraser, and Missguided. We’re relentless at seeking out the most advanced technology and our software is constantly improving. This means that our clients are always at the forefront of innovation.

We have collaborated with many clients and integrated with lots of partners to launch apps with cutting-edge features including: augmented reality, product merchandising, tailored push notifications and app marketing. The Poq platform drives millions of revenue for our customers every month, and facilitates thousands of transactions every day.

Poq was founded in 2011 and we have built an amazing team of diverse and brilliant minds.

About the role

Apps are replacing the mobile web. As the next generation of shoppers go online, they increasingly go mobile, and they favour apps. Nielsen and Flurry both report that 90% of time spent on mobile is spent in apps. Apps are taking over, and it’s happening faster than people thought. The problem today is that apps need a completely different back-end compared to the web. Instead of rendering the HTML on the server and pushing it to a browser, the new generation of REST APIs provide clean and tidy JSON data that's easy and fast to use in apps.

And this is when you come in. The apps are a shiny front-end, but all the cool stuff actually happens in our APIs in the cloud. Because our platform plugs retailers into an ecosystem of technology providers in the cloud, we need to connect our customers to our platform and to providers such as Magento, Shopify and Stripe. As an essential member of our Professional Services Team, this role will help to make that happen.

What you'll be doing

• Translate user journeys and data flows into functional back-end integrations 
• Design, build, and maintain efficient, reusable and reliable code and tests 
• Ensure the best possible performance, quality, and responsiveness of applications 
• Identify bottlenecks and bugs, and devise solutions to mitigate and address these issues 
• Help maintain code quality, organisation, and automation 
• Suggest improvements and optimisations to the back end platform 
• Strive to create solutions that adhere to platform standards

What we’re looking for

• 2+ years experience with C#, .NET 
• Strong knowledge of working with Rest APIs using Asp.Net Web API 
• Creating solutions that customers love 
• Love of writing clean, maintainable, easy-to-test code. 
• Working with Cloud Infrastructure (Azure, AWS, Google) 
• Agile experience

The desirables

• Mobile development experience 
• Experience using Test Driven Development 
• Experience developing e-commerce solutions 
• Knowledge of working in open source communities 
• Experience with distributed systems and micro-services architecture 
• Degree or equivalent in Computer Science or similar


• Competitive salary. 
• Training Budget of £750 per person, per year 
• Genderless Parental Leave Policy based on primary care-giving for biological and adopted children 
• Comprehensive Private Medical Cover including optical, dental and mental health
