About the job

The Connections team is responsible for providing a Data Platform that ingests, stores, processes and exports data for every respondent in GWI’s surveys.

The team’s domain is expanding to include data syncing with apps & platforms that are relevant to our customers.

The team works flexible hours and is fully remote (if that is the preference).

What should you expect?

Our structured program is aimed towards growing your knowledge and understanding regarding functional programming, Scala and our Platform.

From making you feel at home on day one to structured continuous development through bespoke training, mentoring and on-the-job activations.

We will work with you to achieve success here at GWI.

At first your time will be split between meeting teammates, getting familiar with stakeholders, tools, completing the general GWI onboarding process, online training towards Scala and functional concepts and shadowing teammates.

In the next phase, training will continue and as you familiarise with the concepts and Scala language you will be gradually handling tickets and growing into your role until you become a Scala Backend Engineer the team can lean upon.

What you’ll be doing

Key roles and responsibilities.

  • Working within a multinational team of engineers and product managers using Scala.
  • Lead collaboration with other teams to integrate projects into a cohesive overall system.

  • Who we are

    GWI was founded with the knowledge that understanding your audience is really important for business. When you know who you’re speaking to and why, you can create content and campaigns that stand out to the people that matter.

    Through our global online survey, we gather data on the behaviour and perceptions of consumers across the world. This provides businesses with deep, actionable insights on their audience, revealed from data they trust.

    It’s been going well, too. Since launching in 2009, we’ve become one of the UK’s fastest growing target audience companies.

    We’re not about to stop growing any time soon. As a business, we’re on a mission to re-engineer data-driven marketing, and we’re on the lookout for talented people to join us.

    Diversity & Inclusion

    Imagine if our data came from just one kind of person. We’d get a very nuanced view of the world. And we definitely wouldn’t have got off the ground as a business.

    We’re so lucky to live in a society where differences are celebrated so we’d expect nothing else from our teams. In fact, the GWI office is as diverse as our global data, it’s really important to us that it stays that way.

    That means whatever your race, religion, sexual orientation or gender, this is a place to feel at home, express yourself freely and make your mark.
