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 nick.yockney@superawesome.com so we can answer any queries that you have.

Remote working...how 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.
