We've been around for just over 3 years. Mention Me provides online businesses with a world-class Software-as-a-Service Referral Platform. We get online retailers excited by delivering them a refer-a-friend programme with minimal fuss. And we help them get it firing on all cylinders with our segmentation and A/B testing platform. We work with big companies like Farfetch, The Body Shop and Ovo Energy as well as smaller fast growing companies like Biscuiteers and Bloom & Wild.

We've boosted acquisition for our clients by 10-30% and it's incredibly satisfying helping our clients achieve results they couldn't get without us. We also give out millions of pounds (and dollars, euros!) of rewards a year to our customers, and we love doing that. To do this, we serve tens of thousands of referral offers a day, across an array of devices, in an ever growing list of languages including Russian, Chinese, Korean as well as the major European languages. We're globally available and we serve clients and consumers around the world 24/7/365.

About you

You are a software engineering pro. You design beautiful technology to solve business problems. You are happiest working on the technology that powers the business, from backend code through infrastructure and data storage and processing. You understand the complexities of the stack and strive to improve things with high quality code, great testing and a kick out of doing things right. You like to move fast, but not so fast you're breaking things on a Friday night.

You are an intelligent and first rate problem solver. You solve problems in order of business value and you know technical and business perfection are often competing goals. You have designed applications with production-strength, high traffic architectures and have an appreciation for complicated SaaS platforms with high availability. Security is always on of your mind and you'll strive to ensure your clients data is protected.

Ideally, you'll have experience in AWS or another cloud platform. You're comfortable on the command line and are happy with all the tools of a modern fast paced software development environment. Git and Jenkins are tools you can't live without.

You are looking for a role where you can get involved in major product and technology decisions from the get-go, and help grow our small business into a major online marketing business. Our future is as yet unwritten, and we'd welcome your skills and expertise in helping to write it.

Qualifications & skills

  • At minimum a highly accomplished undergraduate degree in Engineering, Maths, Computer Science or a related discipline.
  • Alternatively, 3+ years of demonstrable and relevant industry experience.
  • Ideally you'll have strong experience in Symfony2, PHP, JavaScript, CSS3 and/or MySQL but relevant skills in other languages, databases or frameworks is welcome too. Experience in Jenkins, Git, Logstash and ElasticSearch would be valuable
  • You should be familiar with Amazon Web Services (or another cloud platform) and the technologies beyond just EC2 (for example Cloudfront, SQS, Route 53, S3, ELB, RDS and IAM)
  • You must have the right to work in the UK
