Description

MyBuilder.com helps homeowners find reliable tradespeople through the power of online reviews. 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.)

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.

We want to work with people who are curious, honest, courageous and passionate - if that sounds like you and you want to work for an innovative, successful web business helping homeowners to find reliable tradespeople, then you may have found a new home.

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
  • PostgreSQL
  • Apache, Nginx
  • Varnish
  • 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 will really want to learn and continuously improve yourself.

Ideally you will have worked on open source or small projects which you can show us.

You should want to have a good understanding of modern programming practices and techniques.

Why you'll enjoy working at MyBuilder

We’ll set you up with a new Mac and a spacious workspace at our lovely office located in Clerkenwell. You’ll enjoy the best coffee around, great food and regular team outings. Most importantly, you’ll be in great company, surrounded by a top-flight team on a mission to make the world a better place, one project at a time. We'll also add:

  • Competitive salary
  • Company pension
  • Bonus holiday scheme
  • Childcare vouchers
  • Cycle to work scheme
  • Season ticket loan
  • Foosball, darts, skateboards & guitars
