Lead Backend Developer

London, United Kingdom


Are you sick of mixing server side code and html? Do you love building a clean separation of data and logic? Come build logical, secure and scalable APIs for our Frontend team to work their magic with.

We design and build disruptive technology solutions that give entrepreneurs, businesses and brands an unfair advantage. We’re on the hunt for a super talented Lead Backend Engineer to join our established Design and Frontend teams.

As a core part of our development team, and leader of our Backend function, you will participate in the hands-on architecture and development of our websites and products. You’ll have a great understanding of web development technologies, possesses a positive attitude, and have a desire to learn new technologies.

While a small part of the role will be managing the development process, continuous-integration and deployment of our projects (as well as the opportunity to architect the deployment system going forward), the bulk will be hands on coding, building rest APIs serving up JSON to our web products.

We’re looking to be technology agnostic and able to genuinely suggest the best tech for each project and product we work on. Our legacy work is in PHP (Symfony 2) so experience in, and an ability to support on that, is a benefit but not a must-have. Going forward we want to be building the Backend in Node as that’s what we’re using on the Frontend. We have great synergy between our Frontend Developers and the Design team, and we’d like to see that same chemistry between the Frontend and Backend teams.

This role will be supported by our strong, tight knit, driven team of Frontend Developers, Designers, and Project Managers here at NEVERBLAND. We champion a culture that owns the why, thinks fast & ships smart. We understand how great design and UX, underpinned by forward thinking tech, delivers great products. Working from our lively central London office you’ll fill your days engaging interactive products that people will love.

Join us.
