Job Purpose

The work is around application development, primarily for chatbots on Facebook Messenger, Slack or Twitter, with some portion of time spent building internal tools for data analytics and the media buying team. In the near future, we’re also looking to investigate how we can leverage emerging technologies for marketing (AI, ML, Voice and AR). This is an exciting opportunity for someone who wants to join a small but growing development team, but as it’s a small team you’ll need to be an all-rounder.

Most of all, you’ll help create the company you want to work for.
