Description of Opportunity

  • As a software engineer at FutureLearn you’ll collaborate in a multidisciplinary product team to deliver working software. This will include writing HTML, CSS, Ruby and JavaScript to deliver new features for their users.
  • Cross-team collaboration is encouraged, and teams are flexible with people moving between them as needed. They work in short sprints & regularly share, reflect on and iterate on their work.
  • Their platform uses the Ruby on Rails web framework along with the React JavaScript library. The team uses unit, integration and acceptance tests to drive design and keep everything working.
  • Every engineer has the ability to deploy, and they deploy multiple times per day via their CI/CD pipeline to a large-scale system on AWS.
  • You’ll enjoy learning, teaching & sharing your experience with your colleagues in various ways; they encourage code review, pairing, mentoring, giving (and watching!) regular lightning talks, and getting/giving regular feedback.
