Working at Bad Dinosaur, based in Codebase Edinburgh

Working at Bad Dinosaur

We offer a supportive, organised and creative work environment. Our developers get to work on important projects from within a couple weeks of joining and everyone on the team is encouraged to take part in continuous professional development. So whether you’ve been coding for twelve years or twelve weeks, what we're looking for in our team above all else is effort and passion poured into our projects.

We work using agile methodologies, starting our days with a "stand up" meeting (we don’t actually stand up!) where each member of the team talks about everything that's going on, giving everyone full visibility of the operations of the company. There's a relatively flat hierarchy, and everyone is encouraged to contribute their own ideas as to how we can become even better at what we do.

Working with us is a great opportunity to gain broad experience in an exciting industry. We typically work with entrepreneurs and small to medium size businesses , developing early-stage digital products with an MVP mindset, and we continue to support and iterate on their products as they grow. Since our clients vary greatly in terms of industry and the products they are seeking to develop, every day is different at Bad Dinosaur, and we get to work on some very innovative and exciting projects.
