Engineering – Development /
Here at Forecast we’re building the next generation of intelligent project management software - making the lives of project managers easier at the touch of button with our machine learning capabilities. We give creatives & project leaders time back from the boring stuff, so they can serve their clients and not spreadsheets. If you’re sick of the corporate rinse and repeat and actually want to be part of building an engineering organisation (the why’s, the how’s, and the let’s just try this weird idea to see if it works), then this could be your next move.

As a Developer at Forecast you’ll be right up front and centre in developing our platform, collaborating with our machine learning team to build the best and brightest solution for professional services teams. Your opinion matters. You’ll use your hard won experience and know-how to help decide where we should take our tech stack and architecture, mentor our growing teams and cut through the noise to get things done. 

Tech wise, we’re cloud native and running on AWS - we use Java, NodeJS, GraphQL, ReactJS, Aurora (MySQL on Amazon), DynamoDB (NoSQL), and AWS Lamba (Serverless).

Sound like something cool? Good, we think so too.

    • Take ownership from conception to post deployment in an environment that you’ll be likely shipping code in during your first week - we work fast!
    • Influence and play a key role in our process creation including architecture  - how do we always make sure we’re doing everything the best possible way?
    • Provide coaching & guidance to more junior Developers in the team so we’re always levelling up
