We are looking for a JavaScript developer who gets excited about creating elegant, scalable, robust and maintainable solutions to complex problems.

You’ll be developing on good kit alongside a friendly team at our Manchester HQ and around the UK. Our large customer base is growing quickly and so this is a great opportunity to work with highly scalable systems.

Capsule is built using the latest version of the Ember framework. Using Ember we have substantially sped up Capsule from our legacy server rendered app. Not having previous experience with the Ember framework shouldn’t be a barrier to applying, we’re also keen to talk to folks who are familiar with similar frameworks like Angular, React and Vue.

You’ll be working with a team of developers and designers to create new features and enhancements. You’ll develop your code in GitHub feature branches and pull requests that are regularly merged into master and shipped to customers frequently. We’re constantly improving Capsule so we ship new releases every day and can quickly see feedback from our customers.

Your tool kit includes access to unified logging, application performance monitoring, statistics and stack traces from production environments for diagnosing issues, monitoring performance and understanding user behaviour. Capsule has a comprehensive Jenkins CI environments with an extensive automated test suite, static code analysis and monitoring for security vulnerabilities.

Deployment of Capsule is fully automated and releases are shipped to Amazon Web Services. As a result Capsule’s infrastructure and code is performant, reliable and available for our customers 24/7.

To help you get more in-depth knowledge of how the entire system works, the development team cycles through week-long stints working with our wonderful support and customer success teams. During these weeks, you’ll help resolve technical issues for customers and support third party developers who are using our API. You’ll be supported with a buddy when you need help getting to the bottom of an issue or raising it with the wider team.
