Why work for Headforwards?

We are a software development company with just under 100 people from 13 different countries and we like to have fun at work. We are agile with a very laid-back feel, a relatively flat structure and small self-organising teams of 2-7 people. There’s no pressure to work extra hours to churn out more and more code. At Headforwards, our culture and environment is dedicated to making people happy at work. We have lots of social activities and monthly learning sessions, talks and cross company communities of practice for various languages, tools and frameworks.

This is a place where you can make a difference, work in a small team start-up feel but benefit from the support of a larger community of developers and like-minded people. We work in teams dedicated to various clients and we work on global projects with cutting edge technologies, tools and techniques. We live in beautiful Cornwall, our offices are 5 miles from the beach but we also have a large collection of remote workers too!


Ideally you will have: 
Development experience (Python + GoLang)
CI/CD experience (Docker + Jenkins + Kubernates)
Great communication skills (both written and verbal)
Good collaboration skills and enjoy working within a varied team
Experience in a delivery-orientated IT environment using agile methodologies

And desirable but not essential: 

Experience debugging third party services (fluent-d, opentsdb, hbase)
Frontend experience or an interest in learning more! 

Due to our timescales you must be eligible to work in the UK.

We recruit on a rolling basis and fill our vacancies as soon as we find people who fit our culture and meet the skills requirements. This means that whilst we have a closing date on all of our roles, we may offer the role to someone before the end date, so we recommend that you apply as soon as possible.

No recruitment agencies please.
