  • You're a wizard with Docker deployments and can help our team transition to a containerized world.

  • Team lunch twice a month.

What to expect at the job interview

We'll take a look at your CV and GitHub profile. If you have some code snippets or projects you're really proud of; please send them our way so we can take a look at the code. We'll then give you a small project to work through, which will be followed up with an interview to discuss your general interests, the stuff you've done in the past and what your ideal workday is like. 

This is a full time, permanent remote role, which can be based in our office in Theale or any remote location throughout the UK.
