Software Developer in Test

Limitless choice isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

After a point, adding more options gets overwhelming. It stops us choosing at all. Or leaves us regretting the choices we make. Here at 15gifts, we’re obsessed with the psychology of choice. Studying the key elements that drive people to make confident choices on the high street, and bringing those qualities into the digital world through intelligent decision engine technology.

Today we power thousands of confident consumer choices every day across some of the largest brands in the UK, Europe and the US, including Verizon, Sprint, Sky, Ziggo, Virgin Media, EE and The Times. With every engine interaction, we’re learning more about customers, gathering insights and powering more and more accurate recommendations.

We're a smallish team with a great culture and we're excited about the opportunity ahead of us.

NO AGENCIES 

Fundamentally we want someone who is smart and can get stuff done, it may sound clichéd but we would much prefer to hire someone who is talented and allow them to train and gain experience, than to hire someone with all the points checked off but who has the wrong attitude.

If you are willing (and more importantly, wanting) to learn and get on with being a part of a growing team, and are excited about helping us to maintain and improve the quality of the excellent work we do then we want to hear from you.
