About The Role

How we work:

As a development team we all work closely, pair programming, white-boarding and architecting as a team and peer reviewing every line of code. We have fun while we work and are passionate about technology. We work in an agile way, using the Scrum framework to deliver value to our customers.

We have a flat structure at Mayden. Our team members work jointly to share the responsibilities that managers would traditionally have. Nobody tells you how to do your job, we’re all here to assist each other, not get in each other’s way.

The development team works with the product owner team to prepare work for sprints. We work with our account managers to give our customers the best possible experience and we work with our ops team to make sure our apps are stable and running well.

 

Skills and experience:

Our current tech stack includes (but isn’t limited to) PHP, Slim Framework, JavaScript, React and MySQL. We don’t need you to have experience with these specifically, as long as you have commercial experience with other modern programming languages.

You should be able to demonstrate your experience with MVC frameworks and/or modern JavaScript frameworks.

Here are some other things that are important to us and our customers, you don’t have to have experience in all of these, just a willingness to learn:

  • Accessibility best practices and standards when working on the front end
  • Testing frameworks
  • Software design best practices
  • Source control, specifically Git

Successful candidates will:

  • be passionate about the work we do as well as the technology we use
  • enjoy working closely with both technical and non technical colleagues
  • be comfortable with pair programming and with code being peer reviewed
  • take a positive and proactive approach to problem solving both with their team and the wider company
  • be keen to learn as well as to contribute to the development of others
  • be comfortable working through problems with a team

Benefits:

We offer a great working environment with an excellent package of benefits including:

  • monthly developer lunches (we’ll bring the pizza)
  • quarterly hack days
  • personal training budget for professional development
  • free onsite gym
  • company pension
  • 25 days annual leave plus bank holidays, (with the option to buy or sell annual leave after probation is completed) 
  • private health insurance
  • life assurance
The position is for a full time member of our team, 37.5 hours, Monday to Friday.

Collaboration is one of our four company values - we work best together. We believe there is significant benefit from working face to face when doing so. At the same time, some work may be carried out just as effectively alone and away from the office. We have therefore created a flexible ‘place of work’ policy that asks everyone to be where the work of the day is best completed and overall spend enough time in the office with others to maintain relationships and communication. 

This means there are no fixed days, or number of days, when you should be in the office or can work at home. In any given week you may need to work from the office everyday or no days! It all depends on the work being done and you are expected to be flexible. Many people find this approach means they work in the office 3 or more days a week but this varies according to role and the work they have to do. 

Our Place of Work policy is available on request.

 

To apply for the Software Developer role:

Please upload your CV and covering letter. Tell us what you’re passionate about and what you would bring to the Software Developer team, and to Mayden.

You must be eligible to live and work in the UK.  This role is eligible for a skilled worker visa and Mayden are willing to consider applications from candidates requiring sponsorship for a work permit.  

About Us

Mayden is a growing software company, awarded Development Team of the Year at the 2018 UK IT Industry awards and finalists again in 2021. We’re looking for experienced developers to join the team.

At Mayden we produce healthcare apps, mainly for supporting the recovery of people with mental health issues. We love that the work we do makes a difference, changing what’s possible for clinicians and patients.

We offer a phenomenal working environment, exciting opportunities to learn new skills and an excellent package of benefits including private health insurance and pension.
