The Exam Systems division within the Faria Education Group is a small, tightly-knit group, all working remotely from different locations within the UK.

  5. Good working JavaScript knowledge (React or Vue experience would be ideal, but not strictly required)
  6. Familiarity with Git source control
  7. Be comfortable using the command line tooling either in Linux or Mac OS.

Additional knowledge of C, Java or a functional language would greatly enhance your application, as would AWS experience.

• Competitive market rates
• Initial 6-month contract with potential renewal
