Lead Full Stack Developer

Key Tech & Methods: Python (Django, Flask), JavaScript (React, Angular), HTML, CSS, VCS, TDD and CI/CD


About Us:


AppCheck is a cyber security SaaS company based in the UK. We provide a cloud-based vulnerability scanning technology that allows companies to find security vulnerabilities in their web applications and hosted infrastructure, before hackers can find and exploit them (much like an automated penetration tester).


We started in 2014 with 4 people, now with 70 in total, and growing by at least 20 people this year (entirely organic and profitable growth, without need for investors). Our technology is genuinely several years ahead of the completion when it comes to web app security, so it’s an exciting time to join.


The Role & Initial Project:


We have six development squads, each focused on unique projects. This Senior Developer role takes ownership for the AppCheck UI, through which our customers run vulnerability scans, manage results and vulnerabilities that are identified.


  • Day to day you’ll develop and design key user-facing features using Python (Django or Flask), JavaScript (React or Angular), HTML and CSS.
  • You collaborate with technical, commercial and application support team members to capture feature requirements, enhance existing designs, ensure the technical feasibility of UI/UX designs
  • You’ll also use a wide range of development tools, including version controls systems, applying TDD and integration into CI/CD pipelines.


Cyber security knowledge is not required as we have a separate team of security researchers and web app security experts, but when it comes to web app development we’ll trust in your knowledge and give you autonomy to grow and develop the service


In Summary – Essential Skills & Knowledge:


  • Full stack web app development experience using Python (Django, Flask or similar) and JavaScript (React, Angular or similar) and HTML/CSS
  • Ability to work autonomously and deliver projects on time while working in a small and growing software development team.
  • Code versioning tools, (e.g. Git / SVN)
  • CI/CD pipelines


As part of our commitment to information security and our ISO 27001 accreditation, please note that upon acceptance of an employment offer with AppCheck, you will undergo pre-employment checks including criminal record (DBS), employment & references as well as verification of Right to Work in the UK.
