  • Excellent oral and written communication skills.
  • User centricity and an attitude of taking responsibility for the product and code you ship to our students.
  • Awareness of non-functional requirements and consider these as part of your work, including: performance, testing, usability and security.
  • Experience with version control (ideally Git & Github).

Nice to-haves:

  • Professional experience in high performing cross functional product teams that work closely with the end user, and deliver working software incrementally.
  • Experience working with our favoured tools: Typescript, Next.js, React, Express, Postgres.
  • Experience developing CI / CD and deployment pipelines (e.g. Github actions, AWS / Google Cloud, Cypress, Jest).
  • Any experience of content management or search engine optimisation is a bonus.
