About us

Adzuna is a job search engine that lists every job, everywhere. From launch in the UK in 2011, we now have more than 10 million visitors a month and are busy conquering the world from our office in West London. This is a rare and exciting opportunity to join one of the UK’s most dynamic and fastest-growing startups.

The role

We're looking for a smart, ambitious full-time junior developer to join our growing development team in a remote role based within a 3 hour timezone of London.

Reporting into one of our existing tech managers, you will be a part of our dev team of 35+ people including our existing team of Integration Developers.

In this role you will be responsible for integrating clients' jobs into the Adzuna site across 16 countries, primarily via integrating XML feeds and scraping HTML websites. There will also be opportunities to improve the existing integration/scraping tools and framework when required with a view to improving the speed of development, quality of data and increased automation.

We believe strongly in developing technical talent within Adzuna and during your time with us there will be opportunities for you to progress your career into a senior role tech team. As a company whose product is the website and underlying technical platform, we have a strong developer culture at Adzuna and very high retention rates within the tech team. Our tech team is also critical to the function and growth of the business and you will play an important role in this.

This is a fantastic opportunity to develop and grow your skills as part of a team of passionate engineers who are focused on building a high quality product with the best possible content available for our users.
