About you:

Our current technical stack is:

We’re not expecting you to have experience in all of these technologies from the get-go. We hire attitude over experience – all we ask is for a can-do attitude and a willingness to learn. As technical lead, we expect you to be responsible for developing this stack going forward.



Our values:

Yes before no: our ‘Can do’ attitude keeps us moving forwards. If we can’t do it yet, we’ll soon find a way.

Deliver success, not just a service: we’re entrepreneurs, just like our clients, so we understand their need to succeed and get results.

Integrity comes naturally: if we say we’ll make something happen, happen it will. We don’t move the goalposts and we stick to our word.

Challenge everything: sometimes we’re right and sometimes we’re wrong, but we’ll always bother to ask ‘why?’. We’ll challenge our own and our client’s ideas in pursuit of perfection.

Cherry on top: there is nothing we enjoy more than the smile on your face at the end of a project. We go above and beyond to add that touch of magic that really makes the work sparkle.

Interview process:

Unfold is an equal opportunity employer, we strongly favour diversity and inclusion.
