Before you start reading, keep in mind that the aim of this job ad is to give you a feel for what it’s like to work at Catapult. There’s lots of research which suggests people often don’t apply because of so-called “requirements” in a job description. If you’re an experienced engineer, like the sound of working here and see something you’re not an expert in yet, that’s great, apply and you can learn it here!
What you’re getting yourself in for
Our mission is to build the worlds best part time job. We spend our time thinking about how to give a global workforce complete control of their own work life while completely automating the hundreds of thousands of man hours which would normally be required to manage people on this scale.
We do this through React Native based iOS and Android applications, React based web applications, a mixture of Ruby/ Rails and Phoenix/ Elixir on the backend and Rest API’s to communicate with machine learning services from our data science team.
Businesses ranging from the largest high-street retailers to five star hotels and and independent coffee boutiques rely on Catapult as their casual workforce. If you’ve spent time in London, you’ve probably been served by a Catapult waiter or sales assistant without even realising it!
Our company values https://writing.joincatapult.com/our-values/ are really important to us and influence every facet of how we work together.
Things we’ve been working on recently
No two days are ever the same in a startup, but to give you a flavour of what we’ve been up to recently:
About the role
We’ve been growing rapidly over the last three years and as we start our international roll out, we’re looking for ambitious engineers to help us build the future of work. Our engineering principles https://writing.joincatapult.com/engineering-principles/ give a good feel for how we work together and what we value.
You’ll be working joining out remote team so working from anywhere in Europe is fine! We work in small cross-functional pods of developers who focus on a particular product area and encourage people to rotate across teams.
We've found that the best developers are outliers so these are guidelines rather than firm requirements. If you're passionate about building great software, finding the best tools for the job and learning new skills, we'd like to hear from you!
Catapult was borne with three founding principles. 1. Consistency b. Focus and 2. Never allow those who have influence over you to disrupt the way that you do the things that you want to do. And to be better at words. And why shouldn't everyone get what they want? There's enough work and there's enough staff right? Also, we should get a new freezer.
Catapult remains close to these core values and continues to work toward a flatter, better defined future that has fewer cabbage smelling things.
