AND Introduction
At AND, we accelerate the development of digital capabilities. In practice, that means helping ambitious leaders and organisations build the teams, products, processes and even operational structures they need to close the digital skills gap within their organisation today, so that they thrive tomorrow.

Clients rely on our experience, agility and craft skills across tech and business strategy, software development and product management to address some of the toughest challenges facing their businesses.

We bring aboard thinkers, tinkerers, passionate software craftspeople and inspiring technologists to help us solve these challenges. Together, we’re united by a sense of pragmatism, purpose and a deeply-held belief that digital products and technology alone won’t transform a business or save the world: it’s the people that count.

The Business Platform Introduction
To support our client facing activities, we have decided to build our own end to end software solution to run our business.

This solution takes the form of our Business Platform, Luna, which consists of a suite of apps to run our various business processes. Luna is a business-critical software platform that requires maintenance, expansion and preparation for use by a company with global ambitions.

We are on a journey, and your role will be critical to set us up for success, create the right engineering culture, and deliver outstanding software to support AND.

About You
As a Platform Developer, you will ultimately be responsible for maintaining, supporting, and expanding the functionality of the AND Digital Business Platform.

You’ll work within the Business Platform development team, as we complete development of the first suite of platform apps and begin optimising and extending their functionality, before we then begin adaptations of the platform for new regions to support AND’s rapid growth.

You’ll also work alongside and support the AND Digital Inner Source community of developers, who come from across our various Club and Cloud units to volunteer their time to work on the Business Platform codebase.

As a result, you will need to be able to:
Interact with a range of other developers, analysts and stakeholdersCapture requirements for new functionalityFollow source control best practice; branching strategy, code reviews etcDevelop software to embed business processesWrite automated tests for your codeSupport your code in production including infrastructureTeach and mentor others (senior levels only)
To do that, it’s essential you bring the following:
A good understanding of modern software development processes and tools, including working with Infrastructure as Code - particularly SAM / Cloudformation / Terraform, and writing automated testsStrong skills in JavaScript (React) / NodeJS / Typescript - with experience developing forms in React, and building RESTful APIs in NodeExperience of AWS (or other Cloud services provider), particularly Lambda, DynamoDb, IAM, Cognito, S3, CloudwatchGood communication skills and the ability to convey potentially complex technical information succinctly and concisely to non-technical stakeholdersWorking under your own initiative and making decisions when appropriate
It’s Helpful If You Also Have
Knowledge of SNS & SQS and/or experience working with other asynchronous messaging between services and the associated considerations e.g. idempotencyGood knowledge of data architecture and data modelling, as well as experience with tools used to support these processesExperience working within an Agile delivery process - e.g. Kanban or ScrumA thirst for the latest technologies and automation coupled with a curiosity to research and innovate on new approachesKnowledge of data visualisation tools and methods
Joining AND
From the work we deliver, to the way we serve and support our people, we work hard to ensure that there’s nowhere quite like AND. But joining a company is a two-way street: the fit has to work on both sides. So before you apply, here’s three key things to understand about us:
We’re built for people - like, real humans. Not ‘resources’ or ‘staff’. That means happiness and wellbeing really do matter to us, and we hate unnecessary hierarchy and bureaucracy.There’s no well-trodden path ahead: AND is growing fast and forging a new trail. That’s exciting, and gives us all the autonomy and opportunity we love - but bear in mind it also demands focus, patience and resilience.Diversity is a priority. After all, to build great products that a wide variety of different people love to use, we need a wide variety of people to help us build them. So diversity is more than a policy or a word: it’s business critical for us.
Still sound good? Great! Fill out the short application form below and we’ll be in touch.
