Our cutting-edge platform combines the previously disconnected capabilities of search, business intelligence, link analysis, big-data operational logging, and alerting.

Our HQ is in Galway, Ireland and we have offices in the UK, Italy, France and the US.

We offer:

In this role you will:

  • Provide technical leadership to teammates through coaching and mentorship.
  • Work closely with other team leads to organise and prioritise development work, working directly with the other Engineering team leads and the Product team.
  • Contribute to modernising the application as we refactor legacy Angular.js components to modern React components, adding new components in React/Typescript and improve general usability.
  • Contribute to regular bug scrubbing and fixing.
  • Engage in code reviews for your teammates on GitHub.
  • Participate in design meetings, sprint planning, demos and retrospectives.
  • Candidates for this role must be based in Ireland


  • At least 5 years of experience in full stack application development.
  • Strong experience with JavaScript, React and Node; familiarity with Angular.js and Hapi would be a big plus.

  • Strong experience in writing and consuming REST APIs.
  • Experience with modern authentication frameworks.
  • Experience in designing technical implementations for user requirements.
  • Experience in managing a small team of developers.
