* Comfortable working in an AWS CentOS environment
* Knowledge of best practice processes for deployment, message queues, continuous integration, agile, git

And in return we’ll be able to offer this:

* You will be an integral part of a small dynamic team
* You will be helping us to creating impressive, immersive experiences using the the latest technology
* Flexible working hours
* A relaxed but committed and ambitious working environment
* You will be involved with technical and business decisions and will have a hand moulding the direction of the company
*A combination of a competitive salary (£30 – 40k) and some highly valued stock options.

So What Now?

We are a small team with big ideas. We need someone who has excellent knowledge of backend and sysadmin to build new features, maintain our website and look after our stack.
