What is Dashly?

Our mission is to give homeowners across the UK a better deal on their mortgage, saving them thousands of pounds each and every year. 

We’ve got an ambitious vision to create a suite of products that together will reshape the mortgage market for the good of all – borrowers, advisors, brokers and lenders. To do that, we’ve built a powerful mortgage search engine, data platform, together with web and mobile apps. Now it’s time for us to upgrade our platform to scale in line with our growth rate, and utilize our gained experience to design new data solutions that will help lenders to offer new, more efficient ways to design and distribute products. On top of that, we’re building tools that let advisors truly manage their customer relationships and empower them to improve the service they can offer their clients.

Who are we looking for?

We're looking for experienced developers with a passion for technology, software, elegant solutions and clean code. We don't want you to just write code for us, we want you to be part of our feature development pipeline and we want you to be involved (at least in some capacity) in all of its stages: analysis, design implementation, testing, deployment and documentation.

I’d be awesome if you had experience with all of the following, but we’re happy to work with you and teach you the things you need to know:

  • Programming (senior level)

    • Angular & Typescript (and Javascript, obviously)

      • Yup, that’s our main language, so this kinda goes without saying

      • At least few years of experience with the language and framework is needed

    • State management

      • We’re using ngrx, but experience with any uniflow pattern (su as Redux) counts as well

    • APIs

      • Best practices for designing HTTP APIs

      • Understanding the style differences between public (generic) and private (specialized) APIs, and when to use which

    • Tooling

      • Experience with Node, npm, Webpack, Storybook, Lint and other tools used in front end development

    • Understanding of software design patterns

      • Not just when to use them, but also where and when NOT to use them!

    • Application architecture

      • Understanding of software design patterns

      • Component (de)composition & modular structure

      • Packages & application structure

      • Development of extensible and maintainable solutions

        • But, must be said, we’re definitely not asking for overengineered, complex solutions!

    • Attention to detail

      • Adherence to code conventions

      • Careful and thought-out naming of variables, functions and other structures (good naming is super, super important for us, “data” variable name simply won’t fly, sorry)

      • Emphasis on code readability

      • Best practices as defined by clean code conventions

        • Clean Code by Robert M. Martin

  • Personality traits

    • Openness and solid communication skills

      • You'll be talking to people from the creative, product and business teams

      • We want your voice to be heard

    • Willingness to learn new languages and technologies

    • Proactive approach, initiative and ownership of responsibility for your work

    • Proficiency in speaking and writing in English, as you'll be using it on a daily basis

  • Check out our entire tech stack description below 👇

What do we offer in return?

You'll be joining a dynamic startup environment. What does that mean? Well, if you're looking for corporate development plans organised into several weeks worth of work, outlined in project plans set in stone, with strictly defined assignments, lots of rules and processes and a do-as-you-re-told, don't-ask-questions attitude on top it all, you won't find any of that with us, sorry.

Instead, we're looking for independent mavericks, exceptional individuals, explorers and contributors who enjoy freedom and creativity in their work, and are willing to take initiative and responsibility for their assignments, or even whole portions of our technology stack.

Our core engineering values are:

  • Leadership and guidance works better than management and rules

  • People are more important than processes

  • Failure is a learning experience

  • Always act in the company's best interest

These values guide our leadership, our managers and our engineers all alike. We're building a team of individuals that strives for a common goal. A team where initiative, innovation and great ideas are welcomed and rewarded, where failing while trying to innovate is considered a success as long as we learn from it, and the only thing that's not allowed is passively sitting around, waiting for someone to tell you what you should be doing.

Okay, that was about enough with the buzzwords, let’s get down to specifics:

Employment type?

  • Contract, Full-Time

    • We’ll agree on a fixed sum which you’ll be invoicing us each month, guaranteeing you a consistent and predictable income

    • We expect you to work roughly 40 hours a week for us in exchange

    • The contract will have a 2-month termination period, guaranteeing stability and predictability for both parties

Contractor? Does that mean no holidays?

  • Absolutely NOT!

    • You’ll get 25 days of paid annual leave, on us!

    • We want you to take time off every now and then and recharge

Oh, cool, and what about hardware?

  • We’ll provide you with a laptop, either a Mac or a Dell, whichever you prefer

What’s the work environment at Dashly?

We’re building a relaxed, free working environment built on transparency, communication and mutual trust. As long as everyone’s happy with your performance and results, nobody is going to tell you what to do and how to organize your time.

  • Flexible working hours

    • Mandatory late morning daily stand-up

    • Expected general availability during working hours, especially morning and noon

    • But you can take a break anytime as long as you let your team members know in advance

    • You can choose when do you begin and when do you end your work day

  • Hybrid remote/office mode

    • If you want, you can stay fully remote

    • Or go to the office every day

    • And anything in-between, the choice is yours, really

We’ll still be happy to see you in person a few times a month, should the circumstances allow.

Office space available in Prague (Czechia), Brno (Czechia) and London (United Kingdom) for team meetings and get-togethers.

What about Dashly’s technology stack?

Dashly is running a microservice architecture on Google Cloud Platform written in the following languages:

  • Python (3.8)

  • Go (1.15)

Utilizing the following communication protocols:

  • HTTP REST API (front-end to back-end communication)

  • gRPC & Protobuf (internal back-end communication between services)

And the following cloud services:

  • Kubernetes (GKE) 

    • with Helm for deployment

    • and Istio as the service mesh.

  • Cloud Functions

  • CloudSQL (PostgreSQL as relational database)

  • Firestore (NoSQL database)

  • BigQuery

  • Cloud Storage

  • PubSub

  • Cloud Build (for CD/CI)

Plus from the “DevOps” point of view, we have:

  • Terraform for infrastructure management,

  • and last, but not least, Docker for containerization.

And all of the above is accessed by 3 front end applications:

  • Client portal (

    • Angular 10 & Typescript 4.2

  • Adviser portal (

    • Angular 12 & Typescript 4.0

  • Mobile application (iOS & Android published in App & Play Stores)

    • Angular 9 + Ionic 5 & Typescript 3.8

Apps utilize the following tools:

  • ngrx for state management,

  • storybook for component development,

  • primeng as the main component library,

  • webpack for local development and build compilation,

  • … and a whole bunch of other useful tools and libraries.

We don't expect you to know all of the languages and technologies. Being an experienced senior in Python is enough, we'll give you the time and support to learn to work with the other languages. Experience with gRPC and Google Cloud is a serious advantage, but even here we're happy to work with you and support you to bring you up to speed. Same applies for front end development, say you have experience with Redux, but never worked with ngrx, no sweat, you’ll get the opportunity to learn the ins and outs of it. Same goes for Ionic and other front end tools.

We're investing heavily in a redesign of our application architecture and code refactoring. On top of that, we're also improving the way we handle our data, our entire infrastructure, and overall improvement and simplification of our solutions. This is a very exciting time to be a part of Dashly, and we're expecting a lot of input and initiative from you in our endeavour.

And what tools do you use?

When it comes to day-to-day operations and work organization, our teams use Google Workspace (Meet for online meetings), Slack for messaging, Github as our repository and Atlassian Cloud’s JIRA and Confluence for issue tracking and documentation. Oh, and we’re big on visual analysis, and we use Miro for boards and diagrams.

Anything else I should know?

Our business and product teams are located in the UK (GMT time zone), our creative, marketing and engineering teams are located in Central Europe (CET timezone, GMT+1).
