- You will be supported by a career framework based on hard-learned lessons from the building the engineering team at tes.com, that will help you grow into a well-rounded engineer, focused on both technical and non-technical skills
- We offer both flexible working hours and a fully supportive environment for remote workers
- We are becoming more active in open source development and have a strong desire to contribute even more to the community https://github.com/infinitaslearning

Our team culture and core values
We place significant emphasis on personal development and growth for our engineers, where we follow a mentorship model that provides you with the support you need to grow and develop, at a pace that works for you. As an engineer within an Infinitas company, you will be working with a culturally diverse team of talented men and women from many nationalities across the globe. Above all, we are committed to striking the right work-life balance and value work flexibility that suits each individual – both time and location. This means you can either help to pick up the kids from school and work from home whenever it suits. All we ask is that you are committed to shipping great products and supporting your team to achieve its goals.
Ultimately we believe great products are built by engaged, passionate engineers working together in autonomous teams. If this feels like it could be you, or someone you know, please feel free to contact us!
What should you expect from our hiring process?
We aim for our entire process to take as little as two weeks. For more in-depth information on it, please see this post on our blog.
- You’ll meet with one of our recruiters for a friendly chat to make sure that we’re on the same page about the role.
- We’ll ask you to fill out a skills survey. This is a longer, more thorough process that gives us a good indication of where you are in your career. There are no right or wrong answers here. This just helps us get to know you better.
- You’ll have a call with two of us to talk about your survey. This is an hour-long call where we chat about your responses.
- You’ll come in to the office, and meet with two engineers for our pairing exercise. We have a Github repository that shows the code you’ll be working on for the exercise and explains our thoughts and reasons in a little more depth.
We welcome your questions at every stage, and we aim to give feedback to every applicant, no matter the outcome.
