Full Stack Engineer - WhiteHat (On-site, London, UK)

Introductory paragraph

We’re looking for a mid/senior engineer to help create the first version of our platform - an Elixir/Phoenix project to showcase the hidden talents and potential of young people.

We love code reviews, pair programming, knowledge-sharing, and good, clean, tested code. And we love Elixir! We regularly attend Elixir meetups and budget is available for conferences (including Elixir London and Elixir EU).

We’ve hired 2 devs so far but are looking for more. So even though the above posting is ~6months old, we are very much still accepting applicants!

If you fancy a new Elixir job in 2018, get in touch. :slight_smile:


Thank you for all the applications on this - we’ve now hired another two fantastic Elixir devs so this position is no longer open.

Best of luck to everyone searching for Elixir opportunities. :slight_smile:
