About the company
Blooie is a rapidly growing startup business that is on the cusp of something big! We currently run an international team of designers, developers and management and are looking to build out our core development team. Our company is built on the foundation that this is more than a job. It is a choice to join our Blooie family and build some really cool stuff. We are currently based in Dublin and Leeds so if you want in on the ground floor, apply and lets have a chat.
About the type of person we want
(as in best fit - not just about skills)
We’re looking for a self starter, anyone who has the ability to take something from Idea to its full realisation, however big or small.
Because we are an early stage startup we need someone who can learn quickly and start using their newfound knowledge instantly. You will have a job description but every so often we will need you to adapt to new challenges and opportunities. If we need you to learn a new programming language and start using it next week then we need someone who can do that. (we’ll try not to ask you to learn a new language too often).
We take staff training and improvement very seriously in Blooie and you will be expected to evaluate your peers and your superiors so that we all have the benefit of learning from each other.
We need you to be part of the core development team with a focus on our data analysis, you are going to be in the trenches with us making Blooie awesome and not segmented away from the rest of the developers in your ivory data analysis tower. You will be focusing on data analysis, data mining and data presentation so if you’re a graph lover you’d be perfect for this job.
