The Position

The Reason London studio is looking for an experienced Senior engineer to join our growing cross-functional digital product teams operating in true Agile methodology. We look for natural engineers with a good conceptual understanding of engineering practices across the full stack. We aim to find engineers to grow with the team and help grow the team with their own experience and expertise.

As a senior engineer, you will assist the tech lead collaboratively helping define the engineering direction and execution of a product.

The Environment

Reason engineering adopts modern practices to product execution. We believe in creating sustainable and clean development environments to optimise time to market, create maintainable codebases and provide a rewarding development experience. All our products are set up on a foundation of CI/CD pipelines, Infrastructure as Code, and QA automation engineering, so we’re able to speed up feedback loops and realise product value quickly through the full software development lifecycle. Majority of our products are bespoke green-field development in a range of sectors, and different technology approaches, so there are always lots of fun technology challenges to solve.

Reason engineering is cloud native, often AWS, using terraform for environment configuration, bitbucket pipelines for CI/CD, building Serverless stacks and a range of persistence layers on the back-end, with React on the front-end. But we sometimes take different approaches where product and digital strategy requires.

Nice synergies to know:

  • Containerised services (Docker, Kubernetes)
  • Continuous Integration / Deployment
  • Experience with large data sets on front-end or back-end
  • Practical experience in a TDD or BDD environment

Who we are

Here at Reason, we’re renowned for crafting amazing digital experiences and amazing products. Whether for our roster of international clients and partners, or for our homegrown ventures, we shape, design, build and test digital products/services with users at the very heart of our approach.
