Who we are seeking

We are looking for people that share our vision for high quality code delivered in a highly professional and caring way. We’re keen to see applications from talented candidates that want to be involved with an innovative and thriving start-up business.

To help, here’s a summary of who we are looking for:

Essential

  • Knowledge of Node.js, React and/or Vue JavaScript frameworks;
  • Familiarity with database technology, architecture and solutions (NoSQL and/or SQL);

Company and Projects

Cambridge Kinetics was founded in response to a clear demand for high quality software development services around Cambridgeshire. We provide our clients with bespoke, custom software solutions - focusing on user experience, design and performance. In particular, we forge long-standing partnerships with our clients - and provide them with tangible business results.

There is certainly no typical project and those involved in the company can look forward to involvement in a wide range of projects - from augmented reality, to CRM, to enterprise systems. As a valued part of the design and development team, you will be encouraged to be involved in all aspects from solution concept and design, through to delivery and support.

Location

We provide our team the flexibility of a hybrid combination of remote and in-person work.

We have a strong presence in the Cambridgeshire area and, while the position is mostly remote, you will need the ability to travel to in-person meetings from time-to-time.

Remuneration

We offer a salary dependent upon your experience. Additionally we offer BUPA health cover, a flexible day-to-day commitment and holiday entitlement well above statutory minimum.

We expect all applicants to be legally authorised for employment in the United Kingdom and not to require employer-sponsored work authorisation now or in the future.

How to apply

If you think you are a good fit for the role, the company, for our clients and our products, then drop us an email to careers@cambridgekinetics.com with a bit about yourself and a CV. If you’ve got a GitHub or LinkedIn profile you should include that too.
