Who you are

The Dundee team

As one of our Dundee engineers you will join one of our three product delivery teams or two platform teams offering you a wide variety of work. We operate in autonomous cross-functional teams of engineers, designers, analytics and product. Our working practices help us move fast but help us keep our pace sustainable and maintain a strong work-life balance. In February 2018 we moved into the new state of the art DC Thomson offices at Meadowside in Dundee city centre.

Our tech stack

Our core programming languages are modern JavaScript and Elixir with a good portion of our existing platform in C#. We’re building a new customer experience underpinned by React.js while building out a platform of microservices with Elixir and Node.js. Don't worry if you don't know our languages, we help all our new engineers get up to speed quickly through a thoughtful and supportive induction program.
