The Opportunity:

We are expanding our engineering teams at Newsweaver. There is much more that we want to build and so much that we could improve. We value strong, enthusiastic engineers who are excited to learn and work with new technologies. At Newsweaver we believe that learning and innovation go hand in hand. Our company value of “Don’t just work Learn” is alive and well in Engineering. Through dedicated research time, unlimited access to learning material, book clubs, regular in house tech talks, conference attendance.. The list goes on!

You will work alongside a fun, and highly motivated team of cross functional engineers (Development, QA, PM, UX/UI). Writing high quality, secure and scalable code. We have a relaxed agile culture where flexible time allows you the best possible work-life balance.

We believe in a collaborative work environment. We’ve built our office around it, with break out zones and benches to allow us to sit together and pair program. We like code reviews and we use lots (and lots..) of whiteboards. The opportunities available with us are full-time and permanent, based at our EMEA HQ in Ireland’s Silicon Valley of Cork!!
