Remote Software Engineer

Department:Technology\n\nType of Contract: Permanent\n\nWorking Pattern: Full time\n\nLocation: Remote (GMT +/- 2 hours), with optional London-based workspace\n\nAbout the Role\nSoftware Engineers at FutureLearn work in multidisciplinary product teams, collaborating with designers, other engineers, product managers and stakeholders.\n\nCross-team collaboration is encouraged, and teams are flexible with people moving between them as needs change, so there's plenty of scope to become familiar with the whole platform.\n\nWe work in short sprints & regularly share, reflect on and iterate on our work. This helps us focus on shipping small, iterative changes and responding quickly to changing business or user needs.\n\nOur platform uses the Ruby on Rails web framework along with the React JavaScript library with Typescript, and we use unit, integration and acceptance tests to drive design and keep everything working. Every engineer has the ability to deploy, and we deploy multiple times per day to a large-scale system on AWS, supported by our Site Reliability Engineers.\n\nKey Responsibilities\n\nAs a software engineer at FutureLearn youโ€™ll collaborate in a multidisciplinary product team to deliver working software that has an impact on your teamโ€™s metrics. This will include writing Ruby and JavaScript to deliver new features for our users, as well as refactoring our codebase to make it more pleasant and productive to work on.\n\nYouโ€™ll be comfortable writing modular code and thinking about how your work fits into the big picture, and collaborating with our data engineers to make use of our reporting and analysis.\n\nYouโ€™ll have strong communication skills, and be comfortable discussing problems and solutions with your team-mates. Youโ€™ll be asked to give your input & ideas to help make decisions and shape features via design sprints, planning, story mapping and other product development activities.\n\nYouโ€™ll enjoy learning, teaching & sharing your experience with your colleagues in various ways; we encourage code review, pairing, mentoring, giving (and watching!) regular lightning talks, and getting & giving regular feedback.\n\nRequirements \n\nWeโ€™re looking for people with experience with Ruby and Rails.\n\nExperience with JavaScript, React in particular, TypeScript, GraphQL and Next.js would also be valuable.\n\nYouโ€™ll have previous experience building, maintaining and deploying a large interactive web application at scale, taking into account performance, security and maintainability.\n\nYouโ€™ll have experience writing high-value tests and have a good understanding of software design principles.\n\nIdeally youโ€™ll also have experience of incrementally improving a large legacy codebase and shaping it into sensible, well-organised modular components, alongside delivering features in a cross-functional agile product team.\n\nBenefits \n\nSalary: ยฃ45k-60k (mid) or ยฃ60k-75k (senior) depending on experience\n28 days holiday (plus 8 days public holiday)\nBuy & sell up to 5 days holiday\nWestfield Healthcare Cash Plan\nFree access to Calm app\nDedicated personal learning & development budget\nCharity day (volunteer for a charity of your choice)\nCycle to work scheme\nSeason Ticket loan\nFlexible working environment/hours\nPension (4% employer / employee contribution)\n\nAbout FutureLearn\n\nFutureLearn is a leading social learning platform formed in December 2012 by The Open University and is now jointly owned by The Open University and The SEEK Group. FutureLearn has over 10 million people signed up worldwide. FutureLearn uses design, technology and partnerships to create enjoyable, credible and flexible short online courses, microcredentials, as well as undergraduate and postgraduate degrees that improve working lives. It partners with over a quarter of the worldโ€™s top universities, as well as organisations such as Accenture, the British Council, CIPD, Raspberry Pi and Health Education England (HEE). Itโ€™s also involved in government-backed initiatives to address skills gaps such as The Institute of Coding and the National Centre for Computing Education.\n\nApplications\n\nPlease use our online form by pressing 'Apply for this job' below, including your CV and a cover letter telling us why you'd like to come work with us.\n\n\nSoftware Engineer interview process\n\nWe do an initial competency interview which consists of some screening questions, like checking your right to work in the UK (unfortunately we canโ€™t sponsor visas), and your experience in our hiring competencies.\n\nThis first interview has two purposes: it's a chance for you to ask questions about how we work, and for us to find out what you're looking for from your next role.\n\nWe'll also be interested to find out more about your curiosity, initiative, technical, communication and teamwork skills. So we'll be interested to talk about things like: your approach to dealing with difficult situations like dealing with conflicting or ambiguous requirements, how you communicate your work with others and how you learn new things and teach others.\n\nThe final stage interview consists of a pairing session with one of our engineers. You'll also get the opportunity to meet a couple of people from the Product org to ask any further questions.\n\nHow we assess candidates\n\nWe use a set of competencies to evaluate candidates throughout the interview process: communication, initiative, teamwork, curiosity and technical skill. You can read more about these in our blog post about our hiring framework.\n\nRecruitment Process\n\nPlease contact [email protected] if you require any reasonable adjustments or alterations to be made, to support you through the recruitment process.\n\nDiversity Statement\n\nWe value all the great benefits that diversity brings and encourage everyone to bring their whole self at work, regardless of gender, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age or disability.\n\n\nCOVID19\n\nWe encourage freelancers and people who have been made redundant as a result of COVID-19 to apply for opportunities at FutureLearn. We believe that in these difficult times, good employers have to rise to the occasion and play their part in the community. At FutureLearn, we take care of each other.\n \n\nBe sure to mention the words **TALENT RURAL GUILT** when applying to show you read the job post completely.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Please reference you found the job on Remote OK, this helps us get more companies to post here, thanks!

When applying for jobs, you should NEVER have to pay to apply. You should also NEVER have to pay to buy equipment which they then pay you back for later. Also never pay for trainings you have to do. Those are scams! NEVER PAY FOR ANYTHING! Posts that link to pages with "how to work online" are also scams. Don't use them or pay for them. Also always verify you're actually talking to the company in the job post and not an imposter. A good idea is to check the domain name for the site/email and see if it's the actual company's main domain name. Scams in remote work are rampant, be careful! Read more to avoid scams. When clicking on the button to apply above, you will leave Remote OK and go to the job application page for that company outside this site. Remote OK accepts no liability or responsibility as a consequence of any reliance upon information on there (external sites) or here.
