Junior Developer

Imagine….you’re working as a Junior Developer in an experienced agile team developing our next-generation DAM (Digital Asset Management) platform, Dash, which we are building from the ground up using microservices in the back-end with an Angular front end. Dash is revolutionising how SMEs manage their digital assets (image and videos, etc) to massively reduce the time it takes, by using automation and a fanatical attention to the UX. 

You’re confident, gaining new skills and inspired by collaborating with talented colleagues to create intelligent software products for our clients. 

At the moment you’re working from home and it's no problem, because of the company’s forward thinking, mature and flexible approach to remote working. Your new team can’t wait to meet you virtually, and when you can meet in person, you will be sitting with them in an office located on the 9th floor with stunning views of the sea and the South Downs. 

You’ll have the option to work flexibly, whether that be remotely or in the office, and if you do come in, you’re both amused and mildly irritated by the temperamental lift (it all depends if you get stuck in it...which is rare). But it’s not that much of a deal because it’s more than outweighed by the company’s inclusive culture and desire for your working day to be  inspiring, fulfilling and productive. 

If you’ve been searching for a role like've found it. 

Who we are

Bright is the company behind Asset Bank and Dash. We are an established agile software  company and Digital Asset Management (DAM) specialist based in Brighton, proud to work with over 800 global clients including 20 FTSE 100. 

We have focused strongly on creating good communication channels and still have daily check-ins, lots of online meetings and use a variety of tools to stay connected. We’ve been working hard to retain our company culture to ensure our teams feel connected to Bright and we’re putting the same emphasis on work/life balance, fulfilling, productive and enjoyable work - just as we did before when we were office based. 

We offer a range of great benefits including a supportive & collaborative work environment, 25 days holiday, flexible work hours, income protection and monthly wellness contribution. In normal times, we have company funded outings, monthly lunch club, treats, and drinks after 4pm on Friday. We are doing as many of these things virtually and will revive others when we can. We’re particularly proud of our profit share scheme that ensures every member of the team benefits from our success. 

Our supportive leadership style means you get to make your own decisions and take  responsibility for your own approach to work. As a result, we have very motivated, committed and energetic people who can make a real difference to what we do and how we  do it.
