QuantSpark helps businesses by blending commercial strategy, data modelling and software development to support smarter decisions. We use complex datasets, build bespoke analytical tools and derive meaningful insights, to tackle strategic problems.

What the role is about

As a Full Stack Developer at QuantSpark, you will work in a client or product squad. You will be able to switch between squads on a regular basis, thus experiencing many opportunities to have an impact on a range of projects.

Whichever squad you work with, you will develop client-facing functionality, such as websites and web applications, from detailing requirements, designing and developing a solution to testing and validating that the solution does match user expectations. You will work both on the backend (eg API endpoints) and frontend (eg JavaScript/HTML) of features.

Our squads are small and nimble, so you will have plenty of opportunities to bring in your own expertise and introduce your preferred best practices.

Requirements

The key qualities we are looking for are Analytical ability, Technical creativity, Grit, a Desire to learn and clear Communications

We welcome applications from any educational background and level of experience. We don't expect you to be brilliant at everything, but we value a broad set of competencies as much as experience, so any interest in people management, data science, strategy or product management would be appreciated as well.

You should have the following technical skills:

- Javascript full-stack development (Node, NPM, Nginx, React, Webpack, HTML, CSS)

- Python development (Flask, Gunicorn)

- Data storage and caching (eg Sql, MongoDB, Redis)

- Unit testing, TDD

- Linux / Bash

- Code management (Git, Bitbucket)

As a bonus, you would also have the following:

- A keen eye for good user interface design and user experience

- Experience of designing a web app architecture

- Knowledge of advanced code deployment (CI, CD, Jenkins, Docker, Kubernetes)


We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, or disability status.
