At Bit Zesty you will be responsible for building a wide variety of dynamic and interesting web applications. As you will be joining our high performing team, we are looking for someone who is a good communicator and can fit right in.

Our developers have the freedom to use the latest technologies when they are the right tool for the job. For example, we have been using MongoDB for over a year in a number of applications. You need to have a hunger for knowledge, be a fast learner and be willing to try new things.

Here are some the things our developers have been working on:
  • Designing a Multi-tenant SaaS application with various user permission levels.
  • Moving dynamic PDF generation to background workers, with status polling via AJAX.
  • Working with the Podio API to cache, aggregate and display data.
  • Implementing SSO from Google Apps.
  • Building an API to be consumed by mobile and desktop clients.
  • Getting involved in planning and estimating future projects.

Required Skills:
  • Good written and spoken English
  • Excellent knowledge of HTML/CSS (ideally also Haml/Sass)
  • Good Javascript skills (we use JQuery)
  • Knowledge of Ruby and Rails 3.1+

More Details:
This position is full-time, long term and remote (can live anywhere).
We have a group chat running and everyone is expected to participate in team talks.
We are flexible with working hours (must overlap with London time), but we expect you to respect your team members and be online and available during work hours.

At Bit Zesty our aim is to deliver high quality software for our clients, on time and on budget. We are not a ‘start-up’ so we don’t expect you to put in unpaid overtime.
