Senior Developer

London

7digital is transforming the listening experience for music fans, like you. Our robust, scalable digital music platform and flexible APIs are used to power comprehensive music and radio services for leading consumer brands, mobile carriers, broadcasters, automotive systems, retailers, record labels, artists and agencies. Alongside great technology, we offer global music rights, award-winning radio production services, and content management expertise, making us a leading global partner in this industry.

Working at 7digital, you'll have the opportunity to work with well-known brands and companies. Over the years, we have delivered services for multinationals such as Samsung, Blackberry and T-Mobile as well as for leaner start-ups such as Turntable.fm and Who Sampled. You will be able to experience the interaction between streaming and radio, as we are also the largest independent producer of radio programming for the BBC (including the Radcliffe & Maconie Show and Sounds of the Sixties).

Right now we are engaged in a number of very exciting wearable projects for will.i.am, hi resolution audio services with Onkyo, Technics and Meridian, video messaging with musical.ly, along with developing streaming products for ROK Mobile and Guvera.

We’re working at significant scale – our service-oriented API Platform is handling billions of requests per month and growing quickly. You’ll be joining an enthusiastic team who enjoy what they do. Things like Pair Programming, TDD/BDD, Refactoring, and Continuous Delivery are deeply embedded and we’re constantly striving to improve the way we work. We know typing is not the bottleneck, so there are plenty of other things going on:

  • You can take part in regular weekly sessions sharing ideas, doing Katas/Dojos and discussing practices and technologies.
  • You will get up to two days “innovation time” a month to investigate new technologies or product ideas.
  • You can attend conferences and community events, both as a participant or contributors  - we’ve presented/ran sessions at XP2016, QCon, SPA, Strata + Hadoop World, Agile Cambridge, Agile Manchester, APIdays, XPDay, Agile on the Beach and many others.
  • You can help us host our own popular community event – Devs in the ‘ditch
  • We hold frequent retrospectives (as teams and the department) on how we can improve the way we work.

However, we’re not perfect and not afraid to say so. We recognise we have many problems which need solving and a long way to go on our journey of continuous improvement.

About you

You care about software; you have a passion for what you do which you can clearly convey by your actions rather than just waffly personal statements on your CV. For you it’s more than a job.  You like to pick the right tool for the task at hand.

You believe software development involves a lot more than just writing code. You see it as your remit to really understand our domain so we can all deliver as much value to the business as possible. When you do write code you believe it has to be done really well. To you, quality (both internal and external) really matters. These are things we really care about.

TDD

We’re strong advocates of test driven development, and we want you to be too. We think that it in particular represents such a different mindset that we would only consider you for a senior position if you have significant working experience with TDD. If you do, great! We want to know more. How much? How do you do TDD? How have you used TDD on a recent project? What problems have you faced? The more the better!

Technology you'll get to use

Our production systems use C#, Node.js, Python, Java and we're investigating and running many other technologies and languages.  We use a mixture of AWS and Google Cloud Platform, based around a distributed data architecture with Apache Kafka at the heart. We’d be interested in you if you’re from any background as long as you have a keen understanding of good programming practices. We have a strong devops culture and like to use services that help us create great products; from CDNs to monitoring to anomaly detection. We’d expect you to be proficient in more than one technology stack.  Here’s a sample list of technologies we currently use:

  • C#, JavaScript, Node.js, Python, Ruby
  • REST, Queues, Relational Databases, Document Databases, Infrastructure as code
  • Examples include: Postgres, SQL Server, Solr/Lucene/Elasticsearch, Redis, RabbitMQ and Varnish, Kafka, Spark, Nginx
  • We practice continuous integration, continuous delivery and continuous improvement.

We’re also very keen on open source. We contribute to some of the technologies listed above as well as maintaining our own forks (+ publishing other things we’d like to share) on our GitHub account.

Benefits

  • Share Options.
  • Pension (up to 3% matched contribution).
  • Season Ticket Loan, Childcare vouchers, Cycle to work scheme
  • Volunteer days: up to 3 paid days per year to do volunteering work for a registered charity.
  • Friday beers, free fruit, lots of social activities (like cheese club).
  • Live music events in the office and a dedicated music listening room

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status or disability status.
