Elixir Engineer

We're a technology company focused on building the most powerful product sampling platform in the world. Our products are used by brands such as L'Oreal and Cadbury, as a way of driving trial and reaching new customers over social media. We launched in 2012, initially with the goal of creating a dynamic postal address linked to social IDs, shifting our focus to product sampling a year later.

We're a small but growing team, headquartered in central Newcastle and with offices in London and New York. Our business is well capitalised, with venture capital and angel backing.

Our mission is clear - we want to be the world’s most powerful product sampling platform.

Essential

  • Functional programming skills
  • OTP application design
  • Git & Github workflow

Our platform is 95% Elixir, and we follow the OTP style of application development. You're going to need to have an understanding of OTP and Elixir or be able to demonstrate that you're able to get up to speed quickly.

Finally, we all work using the Github Workflow and so you need to have a solid grasp on Git and also this way of working.

Optional

We use these languages/technologies here and being aware, or having capability is a clear signal that you possess the right set of skills for this role.

  • Python is used very liberally in our stack for applications and processes not classified as high performance.
  • Elm is our UI language of choice so bonus points for being able to work with it.
  • Our stack is a series of docker images running inside of a Kubernetes cluster, so having
    some experience of working on this kind of stack would be a definite advantage.

Holidays & Benefits

  • You'll get 23 days holiday plus bank holidays a year. Once you have been here for three years, we'll give you an extra two days holiday allowance per year.
  • We keep a well-stocked fridge full of soft drinks, or if you prefer something more refined, we have delicious coffee beans and a great coffee machine. We engage in team activities once in a while, bringing everyone in the company together from all over the world.
  • You will also get some excellent tech to use. You can either choose between a non- retina iMac + 4K monitor or you can have a retina iMac. Once you are out of your probation, it is also customary to reward you with a lovely mechanical Cherry keyboard.
