Are you a passionate developer? Do you want to see your ideas make a difference in global education?

Our award winning web-based products are used in thousands of schools across dozens of countries – and we’re growing.

About us

We use modern web technologies and services, and know the importance of not only following the trends in our industry, but working out which ones matter.

We use React, Django and GraphQL for our core applications, and other frameworks and services wherever they make sense. Here’s our full stack.

We believe in continuous integration. When a developer adds a feature to our product, there should be no impediments in getting that feature out to our customers. And like all good developers, we know our limitations. Everything we release is tested and goes through a quality assurance process.

About you

Your skills and experience will complement ours.

  • You are an excellent problem solver with a passion for clean code and a solid understanding of software design principles, including object-oriented programming and test-driven development.
  • You know your way around version control systems, and are comfortable configuring your own development setup to work across multiple projects.
  • You will be able to work both individually and as part of a team to design and build interactive interfaces.
  • You are able to take static designs mockups and use creative flair to build an enriched user experience.

Skills

  • Proficient in JavaScript including thorough understanding of one of React, Angular or Vue JS and their ecosystems.
  • Familiarity with modern front-end build pipelines and tools
  • Experience with common front-end development tools such as Babel, Webpack, NPM etc

You’ll be able to rapidly adapt by combining your existing skills with our hard-earned expertise. In fact, learning to apply new and unfamiliar technologies is part of the job, and we’ll support you to do that.

In previous projects, you’ve brought valuable ideas to the table and allowed them to be shaped by others. 

About the job

We are expanding our Scrum teams and have a number of mid-senior roles suitable for experienced web developers who are passionate about what they do.

Some of the challenges you will face include:

  • Developing new user-facing features to both new and existing products
  • Writing reusable code and libraries for future use
  • Collaborating with designers to create rich interactive interfaces

As well as working with the latest tech and learning something new every day, being part of a growing company means you will have autonomy to shape your role and you will be given regular opportunities to advance your career.

Benefits

We have a welcoming open office space in the West End of Glasgow (Finnieston), and working with Twig offers many benefits beyond project diversity and a strong team spirit. We offer:

  • Competitive salaries commensurate with your skills and experience
  • A focus on your professional development
  • Free refreshments including breakfast, hot drinks and snacks
  • Cycle to work scheme, childcare vouchers, pension contributions and other benefits
