  • Are a good problem solver; you've previously considered problems either around performance, reliability, scalability, or even usability
  • Are familiar with the basics of the modern web (HTTP requests, web APIs)
  • Most likely have a good technical degree from a reputable university
  • Have full existing UK work permission without time limit, restriction, or sponsorship

You do not  need:

  • To be a full stack developer
  • To be a world-leading expert in a specific language
  • To have an encyclopaedic knowledge of the cloud
  • A PhD (though PhDs are as welcome as graduates)

If you know any one of the following, that's great, but this isn't a list of requirements, just a bonus – so please do apply without them! – C#, .NET Core, Python, AWS, Closure or other FP, Kubernetes, message queues, workers, databases, ORM (e.g. EF Core).
