A global customer generation business, supplying some of the world’s leading global brands with high volumes of new customers. We’re on a mission to accelerate our clients’ growth through a passion for data, relentless innovation and the development of world-class teams - and we want you to join us!
We believe that people are our greatest strength, and are lucky enough to have a world-class team of 450+ MVFers building our remarkable culture and driving growth for our clients, primarily in the UK and US - and we’ll soon be launching our third office, this time in the APAC region.
We believe in working smarter, not harder. People join us to develop their careers, work with top talent - and transform the industry. We’ve grown rapidly and consistently over the last ten years, topping the Sunday Times Tech Track in 2013. We weren’t happy with 6th place in the Sunday Times Best Companies 2017 - so we made 1st place in the Sunday Times Best Companies 2020!
Our Technology team delivers our industry-leading platforms across every aspect of the business - content publishing, customer acquisition, marketing automation, global-scale CRM, and analytics across petabytes of data. We work with every other department to add massive value for all our customers - and we’re constantly looking for talented people to join us.
An enthusiastic, self-motivated, technically-astute senior engineer, eager to continue developing your technical skill set whilst helping to shape the future and direction of our industry-leading platform in one of our high-performing, autonomous teams.
You’re passionate about building what’s right for the user; you’re willing to take ownership of features - and contribute to making them superb. You’re keen to use your deep technical ability to develop the architecture and design of our platforms - and (most importantly) you’re confident questioning and constructively critiquing the status-quo.
You’re an accomplished PHP developer, with in-depth commercial engineering experience. You may also have experience of transitioning systems from PHP to Node.js. Node.js is one of our strategic technical frameworks and will be the platform on which we build a significant amount of our new functionality.
You’ll bring your technical aptitude and engineering experience to bear on complex customer-facing problems, solving them alongside a team of talented colleagues to rapidly deliver the right solution. You’ll have the opportunity to work across any and all of our platforms - we positively encourage our people to move teams and try new things - and you’ll work with the team to define and implement the future architecture for our products.
As a senior engineer, you can expect to be fully involved in the team from day one, including code reviews and daily standups, and you’ll be involved in discussions around delivery, architecture and software design of current and upcoming technical work. You’ll be working alongside other senior engineers to deliver highly-performant code, solve in-depth technical challenges and mentor more junior team members.
Your skills and experience:
- Solid track record of commercial development in PHP & mySQL
- Lean/Agile environment exposure, with continual improvement focus
- Demonstrable experience of TDD/BDD - and the benefits (or otherwise!)
- Commercial awareness of business impact alongside engineering excellence
- Clear ability to prioritise tasks and drive them through to completion
Bonus points for…
- Exposure to architecture and/or AWS-based development
- Experience developing in Node.js and/or React
