Experience working on content management systems or digital audio / podcast platforms is highly valued.

Extra bonus if you have experience working with Voice User Interfaces, e.g. Amazon Alexa or Google Home smart speakers.

We're currently using the following, in no particular order:

We also use modern JavaScript features (ES8+) and CSS techniques such as Flexbox and CSS Grid layout modules. Proficiency in these is required.

Career Development

We're a small team with lots of room for growth and advancement. We believe strongly in balancing working quickly with taking the time to test and learn new, improved techniques. We're also always open to mentoring hard-working junior engineers looking to step up into their first senior engineer role.
