And you - what are your aims and goals?
You will be selectively targeting a small, highly innovative, yet 'name’ company indisputably on the way UP. That the role will enable you to take on more responsibility, meet your key desire to build great software, that you'll be 'always learning' - aside from the dazzling technology the existing team is pretty senior - all within a company with a start-up feel.
