FullStack Software Engineer: JavaScript & Java (Oxford)

Are you excited about scalability and the challenges faced when building a platform that analyses hundreds of thousands of Open Source projects and millions of lines of code? Would you like to help us secure the code that runs the world?

We value creativity, intelligence, and a love of learning. We are interested in talking to people at any point in their career: from Interns to Seniors and above.

  Essential Requirements
  • Strong experience with JavaScript in one of the following flavours: [vanilla] JavaScript, TypeScript, PureScript, React, Node.JS, CoffeeScript
  • Some experience with backend Java 
  • A rigorous foundation in computer science (such as a computer science degree)

  Desirable skills
  • Significant experience working on web-based systems that process large volumes of data in either Java, JavaScript or TypeScript
  • Strong understanding of web scalability
  • Cloud experience would be useful but not essential (we use GCP)
  • Database and data processing experience (Postgres or NoSQL preferred)
  • Appreciation of usability and user experience (you don’t have to be a designer but knowing what looks great and works elegantly would be helpful!)

As a Fullstack Software Engineer you will be helping us build and scale LGTM — Semmle’s flasgship platform for performing variant analysis and achieving code insight. By combining deep semantic code search with data science insights, LGTM ranks the most relevant results to only show you the alerts that matter. Microsoft, Google, NASA, Uber and many others rely on LGTM to produce more trustworthy and reliable code daily.
You’ll work across the full stack; on clear, fluid web UIs, together with the robust, efficient, and distributed server-side code that powers them. You’ll have wide-ranging responsibility to take ideas from conception to deployment.
