Swipe - Senior Developer - East London

Originally from Norway, Swipe is a team of three working in a brand new office just off Old Street. Their product allows you create presentations from anything (markdown included) and makes slides look perfect on any sized screen, ready to present live and share right from the browser. 

They are looking for a super smart coder who enjoys picking up new technologies and hopefully has lots of experience writing tests. They are using Go, Cassandra, and Backbone for the app but they pick technologies based on what fits best for the job at hand. Swipe is hiring for both front-end and back-end, but generalists are most welcome too.  You can apply here.



Future Ad Labs - Lead Designer - Brick Lane, London

Based at the very cool Unruly Media Building just off Brick Lane, ad tech startup Future Ad Labs balances their creativity with a dedication to data-driven decision making. Their first product is called PlayCaptcha, an attempt to gamify the currently annoying Captcha experience that doubles as engaging online advertising, which is already being used by publishers like ITV and BCC, as well as big brands like Heinz, Nestle KitKat and Cillit Bang, among others. 

They are looking for a lead designer to create top quality graphic designs for PlayCaptcha and future products. Led by Dr. Jacques Kotze, the tech team has an insatiable love of learning and tinkering with new technologies. Their current stack includes HTML5, d3.js, Node.js, socket.io, AWS and Linux, but the team is constantly trying new tools and attending developer events to learn new approaches.

GoCardless - Web Operations - Moorgate, London

The direct debit disrupters GoCardless need no introduction. Their recent Series B funding was one of the notable success stories of Silicon Roundabout and London’s burgeoning FinTech scene. They've already grown to become the UK's largest Direct Debit provider, and they're taking on Europe next.

As their operations scale, the developer-led team of 25 are looking for a Web Operations specialist to join them. Familiarity with any of Chef, Ruby on Rails, Postgres, RabbitMQ and Redis would be a big plus, and a passion for building indestructible infrastructure is essential. To learn more, head here.
