We’re currently on the lookout for a talented software engineer to join us in our (pretty awesome) Bristol studio. So if think you’ve got what it takes to build digital products and services that break new ground for some of the biggest brands on the planet, we can’t wait to hear from you.
At Potato, best in class software development and human-centred design are at the heart of everything we do. We’re a talented bunch of problem solvers who are committed to finding a better way; delivering smarter products that provide more satisfying experiences and more valuable outcomes for our clients and their users. Our clients include Google, Mozilla, RBS, Cambridge Audio, and the BBC.
Most of our products are web-based and use Python (and occasionally Node.js) on the server, most often Django on Google App Engine (sometimes Firebase, AWS, or Azure). We use a mix of relational and non-relational databases, and other cloud services. We aim to strike a balance between leveraging our existing strengths and exploring new tech.
As part of one of our friendly, supportive, proactive Agile product teams, you’ll take a leading role in helping to deliver a complex, highly successful automated sales platform, serving a global customer base using the latest Google technologies. You will help us make sound architectural decisions and execute the delivery of excellent, reliable, secure, and maintainable software, meeting user and stakeholder needs and timelines. You’ll also mentor engineers both in your product team and across our wider engineering team.
We expect engineers at Potato to be able to find creative solutions to technical problems and user needs, whilst also finding opportunities to optimise and simplify software. For this role, we’re looking for people capable of supporting, guiding and empowering teams to produce excellent software, striking the right balance between perfection and delivery.
We’re looking for someone who writes great code, but also enjoys working directly with stakeholders whilst taking a high-level strategic view of the product. For this role, you must have an appreciation of the full web stack, as well as an appreciation of current trends in both backend and frontend web technologies.
You must have:
Working shoulder-to-shoulder with some of the most talented coaches, designers and product leads in town, we’ll give you the freedom to manage your own work and trust you to get things done. Want to work from home occasionally? Go for it. Need to unwind with a game of pool or some studio dog cuddles? All good. Ultimately, we just want to make sure that you have everything you need to help us build the best products possible.
You’ll have many opportunities for growth and learning: collaboration within teams, rotation to different products, experimentation on internal tools, involvement in new business and pitching, our Potato Talks events, mentorship, training courses, and conferences.
