Gower Street Analytics is a well-funded growing startup doing predictive analytics and data science in the movie business. We have contracts with major movie studios that are household names, and we’ve just closed a Series A level funding round. We’re growing the engineering and data science team to 10 people, and are therefore looking for at least one senior developer with at least 5 years experience to join our team.\n\nWe code in a range of languages, including Clojure, ClojureScript, Python, R, Bash and JavaScript. We use Postgres and S3 for persistence, and host a range of web services and APIs with Docker, Terraform and AWS. These are 100% remote positions based anywhere in the UK, but you’re welcome to work from the London office part of the time should you choose to.\n\nWe love service-orientated architecture, and often name our services after [Mustilidae](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mustelidae). We are, however, running out of animals in this family so suggestions for new woodland creatures to use as a naming convention would be gratefully received.\n\n### Your benefits\n* You will earn over market salaries for on-site roles, even though we’re fully remote. We also contribute 2% of your salary to a pension.\n* You will get five weeks off a year, plus eight bank holidays, and private health insurance.\n* You will know exactly how your salary is calculated through our transparent compensation ladder, and what you need to do to progress.\n* As long as you’re available during our office hours, you can live and work anywhere you like in the UK.\n* You will choose your own working environment - you aren’t forced to work in a noisy open plan office.\n* You’ll get the chance to go to one β€œbig” and one β€œsmall” technical conference each year. There will also be opportunities to go to film industry conferences from time to time, in places like Barcelona, Las Vegas, Miami and Hong Kong.\n* If you’re in easy reach of London, you will have opportunities to attend private screenings with distributors on an ad-hoc basis.\n* You will get what you need to work to start with us, including a large monitor, laptop, docking station and a decent office chair. We’ll also get you anything else you need as things move on.\n* You’ll get Wednesday afternoons to work on self-directed projects, individually or in groups, with the aim of personal improvement and innovation of new products.\n\n# Responsibilities\n Here’s what you might expect on joining the tech team:\n\n### Within your first month\n* You shipped several things, pairing with other developers via tmux and video chat for much of your day.\n* You had lots of questions - we had lots of answers.\n* You are learning at least one piece of technology you are unfamiliar with, drawing on our strong tech culture of curiosity.\n* You’ve learnt how to work closely with other remote people on your team, adopting our strong remote-first culture. This is regardless of whether you’re working in the London office regularly, you’ve visited once, or you haven’t been at all.\n* You understood how Gower Street will significantly impact the future of the movie industry. You know our short term business goals, why they’re important and how we’re tackling them.\n\n### Within your first three months\n* You have continued pairing with others on all areas of the code, leading independently on areas you’re most familiar with.\n* You have an overview of the tech stack, naturally specialising in one or more areas.\n* You have been a part of one of our six week development cycles. You’ve seen how our process works from pitching ideas, negotiating scope and working in very small teams to completion.\n* You have worked with our film analyst team to improve their workflow, helping the company to estimate the movie box office worldwide.\n* You’ll have been coached weekly in Data Science, Software Development or Product Development (your choice)\n* You will likely have caused a bug that was fixed by a team member without any blame, and may have done the same for someone else. You will have improved our systems to minimise the impact of human error in future.\n\n### Within your first year\n* By now you most likely will have been at a whole company meetup in London, working remotely the rest of the time.\n* You have taught someone else what you have learned so far.\n* You shipped significant features that bring lasting value to our customers.\n* You attended two technical conferences to grow and learn, and perhaps as a speaker and ambassador for Gower Street. \n\n# Requirements\n### About you\n* You are smart, get things done and love to ship features to customers.\n* You are keen to learn and try new languages, tools and technologies.\n* You are familiar with test-first development and functional programming. You will be comfortable in at least one programming language, perhaps more.\n* You are comfortable self-managing and working remotely over video chat for much of the day.\n* You are eligible to work in the UK, and are able to get to London once every few months.\n
