We’re looking for a Junior Developer who's keen to tackle some serious software projects.

Since we set out in 2012, Etch has worked with dozens of Startups and Multinational companies to design and engineer Software. We establish long-term relationships with clients to help them improve and maintain their online services.


OUR TEAM

Growing: We’re taking on more challenging projects and want to scale-up from a 4 to a 5. None of us play football, but we could finally field a 5-a-side team!

Focused: We only work on about six products a year, which allows us to give projects our full focus and build a stronger understanding of the problem we’re solving.

Distributed:
Canterbury (near London) is our hometown, but we’re a distributed team so you can work from anywhere. We arrange quarterly meet-ups to bring everyone together and hang out for a few days.
