Working from home is normal practice, this is why we look for self motivated people who will take ownership of their roles. Although, in the early days, it would certainly be our desire to have you in our Barcelona office on a regular basis until we get to know each other better.
are an easy going bunch of people, who all expect everybody to work
hard out of the desire to do the best job they can; we are proud of what
we have achieved, and want newcomers to be proud of what they add.
We generally work an average of 40hrs per week, and that is normally 9-6 Monday to Thursday with 30mins for lunch, and 9-3 on a Friday - but we are very flexible as to actual start and end times, it’s the deliverables that matter. We specify these times to try and make sure we are all around at the same time if needed, but common sense around here is more valuable than rules!
We are working towards all code having tests in place, and take the time to make sure it’s hard to break things by automating and testing as much as possible.
We use a very streamlined version of Agile methodologies, we focus on delivering code often, and are working towards continuous deployment. You break the build, you fix it! You break live, you fix it and get made fun of!
Our products are web sites for the adult entertainment market, and our whole focus is delivering great quality adult content to our user base, and giving those users a great experience while online - so you must be comfortable with adult content, or this isn’t the job for you!!!
