In applying for this role you will enjoy a straight forward interview process and comprehensive remote onboarding.

But don't just take my word for it:

Donal, Senior Engineer:

"I joined in March 2020, pre covid. I spent two weeks in the office in before working remotely.

Working from home has been a change of pace but the collaboration of the team and the communication/care from the management team has been very consistent. I was very impressed with the way the company facilitated the smooth transition for all employees during this period.

From my experience I feel I am a valued member of the team and have been given responsibility such as main developer on projects. This has allowed me to have creative control over the implementation of various changes along with architectural influence.

After 11 months I have been fortunate to be promoted to a Senior Software Engineer, an example of how the company values their employees."
