Software Engineer

Job Title
Software Engineer
Howth, Co. Dublin





Decisions [D4H] is a multi-award winning emergency response team management technology experiencing rapid growth around the world. Our international operation has had particular success and we are firmly committed to growing our capacity.



We are now looking for another ambitious engineer to join our crew in the lighthouse - yes, we work in a lighthouse!



As our next hire you will be part of our small engineering team with a wide range of responsibilities and challenges. You will work closely with the rest of the team on all aspects of product development. As a [D4H] engineer you will have the opportunity to influence the design of our international infrastructure, our technology choices, our policies and procedures, and how we interact with our customers around the world.



Candidates should enjoy writing code each day, designing robust systems, working as part of a technical team, assisting end users, and continually learning and keeping their skills up to date.

Preference is given to those who can primarily work out of our offices in the Baily Lighthouse, Howth, Co. Dublin, Ireland. Exceptional remote candidates may be considered.



Desired Skills & Experience

Strong web application development skills are necessary for the successful candidate to contribute to our large PHP codebase. Our primary datastore is MySQL and the ability to design, maintain and debug schemas and queries is an advantage. Other technologies we use at [D4H] include jQuery, Knockout.js, Redis for job queuing and message passing, Apache, Git for revision control, and CentOS on production servers. Our new product that is currently undergoing rapid development uses a number of HTML5 technologies including WebSockets, IndexedDB and AppCache.



We expect you to have examples of past web applications you have developed. You should be able to talk about these examples in detail and describe the design decisions, technologies used, mistakes made and lessons learnt. Particular emphasis is given to examples that demonstrate your strength in PHP, MySQL, and JavaScript.

Our Values

  • Outcomes, not incomes: Success is measured by tangible human outcomes. The code you write will actually save lives - this is not a common opportunity. We ship insanely great stuff.


  • Connections, not transactions: We encourage networking, co-creation, and collaboration. We champion the front-line responder by providing an incredibly deep and engaging technology experience for them.


  • Creativity, not productivity: We create new value, not shift around the old. We work out of an actual lighthouse in Dublin Bay - come and see our creative culture for yourself. Don't forget your camera - the sunrise is awesome.


  • People, not product: We invest in people and always give real responsibility. Our weekly 'Beer Call' is an open forum for sales, engineering, business, and international contacts to review and question the week's activities.



Company Description

Decisions [D4H] is a collaborative emergency response team management tool that helps record and analyze operations, members, equipment, and training. It replaces the widely-used paper and spreadsheet formats and automates the entry of information using internet-connected computers, laptops, and consumer smartphone devices.



The tool uses this data algorithmically to deliver reporting, team management and intelligent information to the field, and information on- demand. Where required, outputs can be formatted for passing on to governing and compliance authorities.



Through intelligent collation of the data from the 'front-line', Decisions [D4H] facilitates extensive analysis, monitoring and scheduling of training, targeting of resource allocation and cost control.
