Software Engineer (full stack) at Swrve
Dublin, IE

We are seeking passionate developers for our Dublin office. The role will involve working with a mixed team of front-end, full-stack, back-end and mobile developers, and close collaboration with our Product Design team.

Familiarity with a specific technology is not as important as a strong desire to learn and a delight in seeing your software in the hands of customers. We are building a scalable and resilient backend system which processes billions of events on a daily basis and handles thousands of requests per second, and a modern and beautiful web interface. We use a wide range of technologies, including Java, Ruby on Rails, AWS, Hadoop, Presto DB, React, Redux, and many more, and we are looking for developers who can contribute in one or more of these areas.

Named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Mobile Marketing platforms for the second consecutive year, our platform delivers hyper personalized, high-value 1:1 engagement across mobile, email, web, and OTT platforms.

Why Swrve?

In the same vein, we encourage our engineers to stay current with tech, and provide the time and opportunity to investigate and learn the latest trends and techniques. There is also the opportunity to incorporate these learnings into our processes and stack. 

Lastly, we pride ourselves on our commitment to maintaining an excellent culture here in Swrve. We have a wide array of board games to keep us occupied at lunch, as well as a drinks fridge, ping pong table, and some of the latest consoles. We also organise plenty of day trips, family outings and nights on the town.

What happens when I apply?

  • If your CV looks like a good match, we’ll schedule a 30 minute phone interview with two of our engineers, to talk through your previous work experience and projects. It's also a great opportunity for you to ask us any questions you might have about Swrve or the role.
  • If there was a strong match during the phone interview, we will send you a small programming test to do in your own time.
  • Once we’ve reviewed the test you send back to us, we'll schedule a 1-2 hour face-to-face technical interview with two of our engineers, including general discussion around technical design choices and some whiteboarding.
  • Final step is a full day onsite interview. This day is as much for you as it is for us - you get to sit with the team, see how we work, come to stand-ups and have lunch with the people you could be working with. During the day you will work on a small web application project, with a presentation to a small group of engineers at the end of the day.
