Junior Data Analyst and Software Developer | £18K | Advertising Start-up | Central London

Salary: £18,000 (per annum)
Location: London
Start date: ASAP
Sectors: Marketing, Science & Technology, Media, Research & Analysis

Our client is a visionary young business, currently laying the ground work for a new revolutionary advertising platform.

This is a permanent graduate position paying £18,000 Per annum (plus £6,000 in company shares)

Role Overview

We're looking for a junior software developer to join our internal engineering team. You'll be joining us at a very important part of our business development as we build out the first end-to-end version of our product.

The engineering work itself revolves around building a full advertising sales tool and associated supply chain management solution. The unique "secret sauce" of our company is our ability to utilise performance data from live campaigns to dynamically and automatically move our physical adverts to the distribution points where they have the greatest impact. This is a solution that does not exist anywhere in the world and the technology we're building is cutting edge.

The work involves grappling with very complex applied statistical concepts and models. For this reason, it is an imperative that the right candidate has a very strong mathematics background. This could be Applied or Pure, but as you'll be thrown into the deep end, you'll need to know your statistics to be the right person for us. Our current tech stack is a strong mix of Python and PHP, so we'd expect the best person for the role to also be proficient in either of those, preferably Python (2 or 3 is fine).

The ideal candidate's personality and qualifications:
• Strong formal Mathematics (Statistics) education
• Basic competency in developing either PHP or Python
• An understanding of how Agile development teams operate
• An understanding of how full stack development teams are structured and operate
• A strong desire to work within the exceptionally difficult Start-Up environment
• A strong self-driven work ethic to manage your own schedule independently
• A high level of Emotional Intelligence

For the right candidate, this is a fantastic opportunity to be involved in the kind of work that will build up your experience and skillset immensely, far beyond what a junior developer at a larger business would receive. The scale of what we're working on will put you years ahead of your peers in terms of tangible experience shipping full products and solutions to a global audience.
