  • Be both Student and Teacher to everyone you work with in a culture that focuses on intellectual curiosity and development.

  • Be supported and encouraged to develop technical skills that interest you and to experiment. There are plenty of opportunities to work on stuff outside of your remit.

  • Build brand new features from the ground up that are core to the business.
