itison is Scotland’s number one deals and events service, helping over a million members across Scotland and the North of England discover great new places to go and things to do in their cities, from five-star hotels to brand-new restaurants and local favourites.
We’re a Sunday Times Top 100 Company to Work For and our Glasgow HQ was dubbed Scotland’s coolest office in the press.
We're looking for a talented Ruby on Rails developer with a strong background in web development, to join our team.
About the role
This is a full-time position for a UK based developer who can make trips at least once a month to our Glasgow office in the second half of 2021, or can chose to work from there full time.
This role will see you working within our six person Development team to improve our existing products and develop new services for our users. The teams' focus is the itison.com e-commerce site and the associated apps, which process thousands of transactions every day and help businesses across the UK reach our users. We also develop a suite of internal tools to help run our company.
You'll work closely with the rest of the team to produce high-quality, tested code for our products and be expected to take ownership of projects from planning through to implementation and launch.
What we're looking for:
Our Development team consists of four Ruby developers who work on our apps, one DevOp who wrangles our servers and one Front-end developer. We do stand-ups and use automated testing, but couldn't claim to work to a specific methodology like Agile or XP. We aim for an open, grown-up culture where everyone has an equal voice in discussions and brogrammer is a dirty word.
We score about 10/12 on the Joel test
The Joel Test is a twelve-question measure of the quality of a software team
