Skills Range:

Our ideal candidate will have experience of some or all of the following technologies:

Back end developers (Java, predominantly) with experience of:
• Server-side Java 8+ exposing RESTful web services using SpringBoot
• MYSQL or similar RDBMS

Front end developers:

Right now, we need solid (and indeed, SOLID!) hands-on coders, but as the company grows, there is the opportunity to leads teams in any number of exciting areas. We also have global ambitions, so if you are interested in travel, and possibly working in Australia, America, etc. this could certainly happen.

We are looking for great developers who are passionate about some or all of the following:
• Mobile development
• AI, Big Data & Machine Learning
• Wearable technology
• AWS / Cloud
• Continuous delivery / deployment

Person Specification:

Any applicants should have a keen interest in health, sports or fitness as this will be beneficial in shaping the product, and indeed testing it.
