What kind of person are we looking for
We’re looking for a junior / trainee developer that wants to start their career at an inspiring company. Someone who’s as crazy about writing code as eating cake. Do you lie awake at night wondering how to crack the code? Do you start every email with “Hello, World!” Then we’re looking for you.
Our client is helping their clients develop inspirational learning journeys with their platform. To make sure their platform keeps on developing, they need great talent to join their team.

You’re up for a challenge and you come up with your own creative solutions. You are a team player, analytical, result orientated and love to learn.
Sound like you?
