We are also big believers in practicing what we preach! You can see more about our culture here:
What you’ll be doing
- You’ll work closely with developers, product managers, UX, QAs and DevOps - We work in small super-focussed cross functional teams (squads) who work for the most part, on their own, on a specific product
- You’ll be pitching in with both mobile app and web development
- Writing bucket loads of good quality code!
- Right now we use React, React Native, Redux and other useful libraries like Styled Components - but we have a long way to go. You’ll help drive the decisions about what technologies we should add and how we should best utilise the ones we’re already working with
- You have been responsible for shipping a product that people love
- You’re thoughtful about design patterns, testability and the efficiency of your code
- You’ll have a positive attitude towards taking and giving feedback - we’re here to help each other become better developers (and maybe people!)
- You’re passionate about writing great software...and still know that you sometimes have to make some tradeoffs to ship quickly
- You’ll have worked with React (or some other framework) for a good while and be comfortable picking up others
- You’re friendly, humble, enjoy collaborating and are easy to work with - as you may gather, our culture is really important to us!
- You love learning! We’re continuously growing here - individually and as a team

- Familiarity with DDD principles
- Experience with microservices - our backend is made up of these
Are there any benefits besides the salary?
The hint is in the name - you of course get all the perks we offer to our customers. We also do regular team lunches, out of office days and team building nights. We also have a generous learning budget, rapid progression paths (for the right people) and a huge blow out all-hands party twice per year.
What are the prospects for career advancement at Perkbox?
Every aspect of our business is growing. If you want it there is significant potential for increased responsibility over time, be that managing a team, or taking ownership of complex technical systems. Join us and you will grow.
