Newicon got in touch recently as they are looking for a Full Stack Web Developer to join their team and wanted to make sure that plenty of women in tech would see the advert and apply. Needless to say we immediately invited them to come along and give our Free3Friday coffeetalk [MORE INFO HERE], so they are sending Neill Jones along with a couple of packets of biscuits on June 15th at 11am to tell us why you should join their team of designers and full stack developers creating mobile apps and websites in Bristol.
There’s a pdf with all the info from Newicon HERE for you to check out. But don’t just read that, come and talk to Neil on Friday then put in an application – they are starting interviews next week.
We like our coffeetalks, as they give us a chance to ask questions about not just the role, but the whole company. We have asked Neill to tell us why Newicon is an exciting place to work – on a practical level we did note that they are an Equal Opportunity Employer and offer flexitime, 25 days’ holiday plus bank holidays, cycle scheme, nearby gym, contribution matching pension scheme and want you to “have a life away from the computer”.
So, back to the role of Full Stack Web Developer. We have had a look through their job spec and it looks pretty friendly. We like that they want people who enjoy problem solving and writing code, and value communication skills too. It sounds like a place that encourages collaborative working, with an agile, team-based approach to projects. Newicon are definitely looking for someone with experience, but they do offer support and guidance to help their team members grow, so come along on Friday and find out if your level of experience fits Newicons needs and expectations!
You can do more background research on their main website: www.newicon.net
Application will be by CV and covering letter to firstname.lastname@example.org so come along and meet Neill on Friday and ask him all your questions first. We encourage our members to bring their cvs along – even if they need a bit of dusting off, we can help with that.
