No roles that fit your profile? Please check back here periodically for openings or register interest here and we will keep you posted as and when new roles open up.

What do we look for in a candidate?

For us to consider a candidate joining our team, they must clearly demonstrate our three core values:

Learn - in the ever-evolving tech world, the ground shifts under our feet and we must not be afraid to evaluate new ways of working, explore unchartered territory and develop new skills, without fear of failure, setbacks or judgement and strive to create a culture in which such learning is not just supported but encouraged, and that we can own and learn from our mistakes and both give and receive feedback 

Drive - we must show a clear passion for what we do and why we do it and the role it plays in our ultimate objective - ending flooding. This was the impetus behind our creation and is what motivates us to continue to innovate and push the boundaries of the possible 

Deliver - we must follow through on our commitments to our clients and colleagues, providing outcomes that make efficient use of the resources at our disposal, and at times work in an agile manner, flexing between self-led and collaborative working styles in response to our dynamically changing start-up environment 

Application Process

We pride ourselves on our transparent and streamlined application process.

It involves a rapid initial application submission taking no more than 15 minutes consisting of just a CV and a basic question about relevant experience to the role (no cover letter or regurgitation of the CV into a form is required!) 

Our process is as follows:

- Application submission

- Initial phone/video screen (15 mins)

- Technical Coding Assessment with team engineer (1 hour)

- Final onsite interviews with the CEO/CTO + chance to meet the team (2 hrs)

- Optional interviews with an advisor and/or investor (30 mins)

Our process serves as an opportunity not just to get to know you but for you to get to know us too!

We want to find out about your skills, experience, ambitions and motivations and ultimately, why you want to join us.

It also just as importantly is an opportunity for you to learn more about us as a company and team so you can decide if we are the right fit for you too.

We look forward to receiving your application should you decide to apply.
