  • Experience with programming applications and web services using languages such as Elixir, Ruby, PHP and Javascript as well as JSON, HTML5 and CSS
  • Elixir experience is not required, but a genuine interest in learning the language is a must!
  • React experience is also not required, but it would be helpful if you have used it before
  • Experience writing and managing test suite, code management and CI, and excellent debugging and optimisation skills
  • Able to take a proactive, hands on, and collaborative approach in all sprints and tasks

  • Motivated by a fast paced, high pressure environment where you will have to constantly adapt - no two days are the same, seriously
  • Our core values hit home for you: Be Humble, Obsess Over Customers, Think Deeply Move Quickly, and Embrace Change
  • If you can find Bobby Tables on our website, extra points :)

What is it like to work at Xplor?

You’ll be a part of a thriving startup funded by top investors including Airtree Ventures. But more importantly, you will get to be part of a team with big dreams and a shared goal to make a real impact on the education sector. Some of the other perks of working with us:

  • Unparalleled opportunities to learn with swift progression for high performers
  • A great team environment where we support, recognise, and care about each other

  • Plenty of rocket-related puns, of course!
