How we work

We use Atlassian products (Bitbucket, JIRA, Confluence) for management of features added to our product platforms. We work in 2 weeks sprints.

You will work on hosting platforms that are used by the Agency (web sites) and Tech (web applications) Divisions of the company, but will be a part of the Technology Division, working closely with the DevOps Lead Engineer.

Dailies and progressing work in progress may be completed remotely (working from home) as agreed with the Product Director of the Technical Division, but periodically you may be required to come to the Cheltenham office for face-to-face meetings, planning/workshops or team building. However, this will largely be a remote working role.

Journey is a fast paced and exciting place to work. No two days are the same. That said, more is not always better. We believe that engaged, fulfilled people are more satisfied and productive at work. We aim to provide you with balance.

We have several team days as a whole company throughout the year, and our development team workshops provide you with more opportunities to get to know your teammates and have some fun. As self improvement and learning is encouraged, we’ll support you to attend any conferences or courses that are appropriate.

What You'll Get

Success is a mutual game, which is why we invest heavily in our team. We believe in true partnerships that reward equally, so in return for your content craftsmanship, we offer a suite of perks to complement a benchmarked salary, including flexible working, personal development initiatives and much more…
