Software Engineer (Backend)

Website Zoopla

At Zoopla we want to help everyone make intelligent home buying decisions. We are building a team that will have the once in a career opportunity to re-imagine our industry. The interesting stuff…

  • You will have spent lots of quality time with your IDE of choice, learning the powerful idioms and important idiosyncrasies of at least one programming language. We like to code mostly in Golang, Python, Node.js / JavaScript, .NET Core and Perl here, but we’re open to all.
  • You regularly practice honing your engineering craft, expanding your skills in techniques such as TDD, refactoring, clean code and pair programming.
  • You will ideally be familiar with AWS, although it’s useful if you have some knowledge of other cloud services, too.
  • You appreciate the benefits of CI pipelines and automation for both quality and deployment.
  • You understand the importance of delighting users with your product while making sure it remains stable, performant, observable and supportable.

  Why Zoopla…

  • We’re serious about tech but we don’t take ourselves too seriously.
  • We are spiritually agile, not religiously agile.
  • We strongly believe in the value of good design. We believe it is a primary differentiator in an increasingly crowded marketplace.
  • We believe in the value of data. We run a team that is data informed. We think being data-driven is soulless and dangerous. Clean, confident, clear data combined with the insights of the team is what drives our decisions.
  • We want to build small, collaborative, cross-functional teams that push each other to create elegant, simple solutions to difficult customer problems.
  • No matter what the role we want everyone to be obsessed with getting inside the minds of our customers.

How do you know we’re the best place for you?

  • You strive to set the standard and are always looking to raise the bar and want to be surrounded by others who do so as well.
  • You enjoy knowing your customer.
  • You want to build things together, collaboratively with your team.
  • You want to own it; to have ownership and accountability for the outcomes of your effort.
  • You value sharing and committing to discussions and debates with your teammates.
  • And if you want to come help us re-imagine an industry.
