Wednesday, November 15, 2017. Author



We’re an open-minded and friendly bunch of science, tech, fitness, and business enthusiasts who are passionate about creating personalised health and fitness solutions. We are results focused, but also encourage having fun along the way: spending time on the ping-pong table is not unheard of! We pride ourselves in our scientific approach and use of technology to continually drive and grow the business forwards.


What are we looking for?

We’re looking for an ambitious and talented developer, ideally someone who already has some .NET MVC, Razor experience. Having said that, if you can demonstrate your desire and ability to rapidly acquire new skills then you’re in with a shot!



You’ll be working closely with the design team to ensure their vision becomes a reality. This will apply to both our main website as well as the members site. You will have greater freedom to wet your own design juices when working on the internal interfaces, for our back-office systems.

All these are key parts of the business so an eye for detail is imperative.


Essential skills

If you are confident in most of these and your skills are missing/weak in one or two areas but you are willing to learn please do get in touch!

  • Proficient in HTML5, CSS3/Sass JavaScript, jQuery, Bootstrap 3
  • Ability to take a design and turn it into a page using the above technologies
  • Experience of frameworks and CMS


Bonus skills

  • C#, .NET and MVC, Razor – doesn’t need to be professional experience
  • Visual Studio
  • Umbraco
  • AngularJS
  • Good understanding of UX design
  • Understanding mobile first responsive design
  • Good understanding of securing websites
