What this role isn’t: Turn up at 9am on the dot, throw together another WordPress site as quickly and as cheaply as possible, FTP it straight to production with no tests and hope it’ll be alright on the day.
OK, so what is it then?
We believe in doing things properly. We want you to as well.
While Parallax is definitely an agency, we don’t do a lot of “agency” work. Sure, there’s some websites in the mix of what we produce but the breadth of software that we develop as a team in IoT, Healthcare and Mobility are really exciting. They’re genuinely cutting edge.
Two of our Directors work every day as part of the development team. They’re hands-on. We do regular hack-days, we provide accredited training and we place a big focus on professional development.
We use source control, automated testing and we firmly believe in doing things the right way.
We don’t scrimp on spending where it matters. Everyone gets a Mac with all of the RAM and licenses for best in breed software to get the job done the best way possible.
We’re one of the front-runners in the agency/tech world, especially in Leeds, with a significant proportion of our team AWS Certified, frequent speaking gigs at tech events around the city and leaders in technologies such as Serverless.
We’re the kind of company that work with people, not CVs. If you’re not totally up to speed with every one of the following, don’t worry – we’re good at seeing potential in people and if you’ve got the right attitude for the job and a passion for enhancing and expanding your skills, we want to work with you.
Work shouldn’t be a necessary evil. Here are some things we do to make work fun:
