I am totes jealous of whoever takes them up on this. Alex is one of the
nicest, most patient CTOs I've ever met and the role has a lot of juicy
technical problems to get your teeth stuck into. You cannot possibly waste your
time applying. If you're on the fence, do it!

I run a technical consultancy specialising in Ruby on Rails. Have a look atthis
one-page info sheet for a summary of the services we provide. We're always happy
to meet people building software, so if you think of anyone appropriate for us
we would appreciate being put in touch :-)

Hey everyone!
I probably know a bunch of you already - for those that don’t - my name is Sroop
and I’m one of two developers at a startup called Peg. I’ve been here for almost
two year now and prior to that I worked at a great web development agency, New
I’m sending this message out because we are finally growing our teeny tiny
development team. I would love to know if there are any awesome developers out
there in the community that would like to join us at our office in London,
Liverpool Street. We are looking to take on two full time developers: one
junior/mid-level, one mid/senior.
Here are some of the reasons I heart Peg:
1. The other 50% of the development team, Peg’s CTO Alex Peattie. Alex, in a
past life, has trained literally hundreds of developers... Possibly you are one
of them, possibly you work alongside one. Alex is an amazing developer and one
of the million reasons why I love working here (he is definitely not looking
over my shoulder while I write this).
2. We’re building software that solves problems that have never been tackled
before in a really fascinating and fun industry. To quickly explain what Peg is:
Peg is a tool that helps connect brands to social influencers (Pewdiepie
anyone??). Our big mission is to shift large, global advertising budgets away
from traditional media towards independent content creators, because quite
frankly TV is a load of rubbish. It’s a fast moving, explosive industry and we
are quickly becoming the go-to tool for some of the biggest agencies and brands
out there.
3. We are sitting on a ridiculous amount of data. The downside is every SQL
query has the power to bring us down to a grinding halt - performance and speed
are some of things we really care about. The benefits of having this amount of
data is that we have access to all kinds of crazy insights: like that the
average length of Spanish kinder egg videos is 11mins.
4. The team is small and we’ve cultivated an honest and authentic culture around
positivity, learning, curiosity and kindness. As a company, we’ve done all sorts
of things to further our own education: We’ve all completed Coursera’s 3 month
Machine Learning course (even our CEO), we’ve learnt R for statistical analysis,
we created our own 3 month course about SQL JOINS (our beloved "JOINs academy")
- etc. etc.
In terms of stack, well we use (surprise surprise) Ruby - specifically Rails -
plus Angular and PostgreSQL. For the rest see here: 
If any of that sounds like your kind of thing there are full job descriptions on
our hiring page: https://peg.co/hiring. Or if you have any questions about my
experiences at Peg or would like to have a chat about the positions, please drop
me a message at sroop at peg.co.
Thanks so much, and see you at the next meetup!
