How passionate are you about software development?

Our Client is an exciting, award winning Education Technology startup company launched in 2017 – They have schools using them on 4 continents and the future is looking great for the company.

If you are an innovative JavaScript developer ready to kick-start your career and take the next big step they want to talk to you.

As a startup they guarantee that you’ll get to take projects from design through to launch with significant input at all stages and you’ll be able to look back and say “I did that”.

The ideal person would have a solid understanding of JavaScript. Candidates should have a passion for all things coding and tech, as well as being enthusiastic, hungry to learn and a keen problem solver.

You would be the type of person that has real passion about technology – a proper geek like them that wants to go places and change the world. If someone asked you about Vegas you’d think “CES” not “Elvis”, you tell people that Arduino is an electronics project not a grime artist and you have a house full of raspberry Pi’s to automate things that probably don’t even need automating – just because you can…
