Software development at MyBuilder
Our focus is to produce high quality, working and tested code which not only keeps us happy and productive, but also helps the business to succeed. Our development process has been honed through exploring various flavours of agile and we believe that our way of working helps us get the right things done at the right time.
Our current main technology stack is:
- Symfony on PHP 5.6/7.1
- Apache, Nginx
- ReactJS, Redux/Flux
We practice clean code and have been using DDD at MyBuilder for over 3 years.
We have open sourced a number of our tools and happily contribute back to projects we use.
The right person
We are looking for people who care about good craftsmanship, who strive to improve themselves, their code and the workplace.
You understand that maintenance — bug fixing, addressing technical debt, refactoring, increasing automated test coverage — are as important as writing new code.
You don’t need to have worked with all the technologies we use.
You should have worked for a number of years building software including taking ownership of large projects from idea to completion and then maintaining and growing the system.
You should have experience in, and an understanding of improving the performance of the code and systems you create.
You should have a good understanding of modern programming practices and techniques.
Despite having years of experience you will understand you have a lot to learn.
We’re a market leader in the UK and are part of IAC, a well known New York based internet group (Tripadvisor, Vimeo, Match.com, Tinder, HomeAdvisor, etc.). MyBuilder operates throughout the UK.
Our headquarters in Clerkenwell reflect our unique culture: we have an amazing office bar, guitars, a drum kit, a bike mechanic workstation, extensive library and a rotating food team who make lunch for everyone. It’s a fun place to be and that’s mainly because everyone in the team believes in the mission and is seriously good at what they do.
