What are the Best and Worst things about your job?
Problem solving - it's fun. I enjoy writing code which works, is future-proofed and easy to understand; the harder the problem, the more challenging the solution, and therefore the more fun!
Out of hours calls. We're all on call all of the time, which is understandable (and I wouldn't want us to leave our product broken overnight, because that would put lives at stake). We're making changes to make this less likely (e.g., we're doing a big piece of work to reduce the likelihood of our most common problem by 94%!) but it's still annoying and disruptive when we do get calls.
What is the annual salary for this role?
Starting salary: £31,000 - £33,000
Current salary: £49,000 - £51,000
What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
In the past, I vetted applications for the software developer role, and it was always far nicer to see applications from people who had put effort into their CV and cover letter (although we've done away with cover letters since!). Put some effort into making your CV readable, and try to show off the things that make you a good candidate for our work.
Also, don't be put off by the "aptitude test". It's basically a maths quiz, and if you've got the A* in Mathematics that we need, you'll enjoy working through the questions.
Do you have any interview tips?
Be authentic. It'll make your interview more enjoyable for both you and the interviewers!
Get to grips with logic puzzles; we're after people who can quickly solve problems, often out of the blue. Your solutions don't necessarily need to be right first time, but you need to be comfortable working through them.
