In the telephone interview I was told I'll be called in for the face to face interview next week.
The company is an engineering/manufacturing firm whose headquarters is about an hour drive away in normal traffic conditions, which is where the software development team are located.
They also have another site, which is about a 10m drive in normal traffic conditions. I don't like long commutes and the close distance might even allow me to cycle for health reasons.
They have a single tester, one business analyst, several developers, and the manager. Currently they are all located at HQ.
They are recruiting for two developers in either location, so I may be the only developer in this office.
They also have a support role which is on a per-rota basis, but was advised I may be the contact point being the only dev in this location.
Given I might be the only contact point and working remote from the rest of the team, what questions should I ask the interviewer? What things should I be concerned about, such as communication? Do I need to consider I might the only contact point when thinking about salary?
Although I asked questions about what tooling they use, I felt the telephone interview was inappropriate to ask about benefits such as flexible working, and what hours are worked.
