Our Challenge

How to work out what the user's problem is when they don't even know... How to gain maximum insight from the torrents of data we can gather... How to keep the dev teams running faster, better, stronger...

Your Impact

Our development covers a wide variety of domains and technologies - Android applications, RESTful APIs, web sites, and enterprise grade backend systems. Throw in a working knowledge of server admin, networking and database administration for good measure. As an agile developer, what you do away from the keyboard is just as important, so being able to talk to the rest of our expanding business and showing good judgement and time management is a must.

Why Work for WDS?

We're a global company, with a local feeling

We have offices around the US, in South Africa, Australia and New Zealand but the UK dev team sit next to, and share a kitchen with, the CEO and most of the directors.

We've got agile chops

We've been 'agile' (as a team, and as a company) since pretty much when the manifesto came out. We've tried a lot of things, and constantly look to improve. Bring your ideas and thoughts and we'll merge them in and teach you some of ours!

Life/Work Balance - because Life should come first

Need to work from home because the plumber is coming round? Need to duck out early to pick up the kids? We're open to all that. We'll kick you out at the end of the day, we don't really do evenings or weekends. We think that a healthy work/life balance leads to happy people, and happy people lead to successful products.

More than a 'developer'

We don't have 'Architects'...We don't have 'Business Analysts'...We don't have 'QA's'...As a team of developers, we have the power and responsibility to make sure all those things happen...

Example Commit and Deployment Rate

(some commits trigger multiple deployments, hence why the deploy bars can be higher than the commit line)
