We're on the look out for talented individuals to join our rapidly growing technical and management teams. Working on massive scale projects for the biggest tech and media companies, with some of the best developers in town, Potato takes pride in providing a rewarding and enjoyable place to ply your trade.
Our relaxed and airy offices are designed for developers and we aim to foster a perfect environment for producing the best code, as efficiently as possible. Centrally located in London and Bristol our offices are a far cry from the norm, and include things like retro arcade machines, fancy coffee makers and big monitors, not to mention a pool table, chess sets, the dart board and giant Jenga!
Well-stocked fridges and snacks are also close at hand and lunch is free. We make prolific use of video conferencing and keep meetings to a minimum, freeing up time for making things instead.
As you can see, we're all about the code, but we also know how to kick-back and relax. Evenings out are a regular occurrence, but we also enjoy the odd beer-and-videogame session in the office. Extra-curricular activities also include movie nights, climbing, paintball, go-karting, and the odd gig - we advise against the Honey Jack Daniels shots on a school night, however...
Every so often all the permanent staff vacate town entirely for an offsite, usually in the countryside, for a week of fresh air, cider and coding. Previous overseas trips have included New York, San Francisco, Santa Cruz, Boulder, Las Vegas, Austin, Los Angeles, Paris, Zurich, Dublin, Tokyo and elsewhere.
We employ the latest practices to make sure that your work works and is viewed by the outside world as quickly as possible. Everything is in the 'cloud' and everybody deploys. You choose exactly what setup you want (OSX, Linux, Windows, whatever) and what software you'd like to use to access our tools.
We love open source software and regularly contribute to existing projects as well as licensing our own work for review and collaboration.
Considering a job application? If you'd like to, we'd be only too happy for you to spend a couple of days with us in the office, so you can judge first-hand what working here is going to be like. Just mention that you'd like to spend some time with us during the application process and we'll make all the arrangements.
