Wanted: Full-stack Engineer

We’re looking for a full-stack engineer. By full-stack we mean someone who is content writing a browser/mobile application and then building the backend to run it all. We’re a small team and don’t have room for over specialisation; you’ll be doing a bit of everything and need to be cool with that.

We’re a completely flat/transparent operation and keep no secrets. We manage our engineering process through a combination of Slack, GitHub, Trello, email and duct tape.

You:

  • 4-5 years in a full-stack or similar engineering role (preferably at startup scale)
  • A strong portfolio of work that you can demonstrate and talk about in detail (this can be from your day job, side-projects or open source)
  • Have worked with front-end frameworks like React (+1), Ember, Angular, Backbone etc.
  • Have developed back-end APIs/applications with languages/frameworks like Ruby/Rails (+1), Node/Express, Python/Django/Flask or something along those lines.
  • Enjoy collaborating in small, fast-moving engineering teams
  • Like to speed up development using tools like Vim (+1), Git, Tmux, Zsh, Docker etc.
  • Know your way around AWS (+1), GCP or Azure
  • Understand that sometimes a quick solution trumps the best solution and know what KISS stands for.

What you’ll be doing:

  • Developing beautiful user experiences with the help of React, Redux, Rails and any other tools you see fit.
  • Applying sophisticated machine learning techniques to analyse financial behaviour.
  • Optimising product deployments to serve thousands of concurrent requests.
  • Debating the relative merits of London’s many craft breweries, coffee houses and carrot cakes.

What we value:

  • Commitment, restraint, expansive thinking, honesty and a good sense of humour
  • We are transparent and expect the same, we prefer whiteboards not loud voices.
  • Familiarity with a startup environment, we value efficient time management over “bums on seats”
  • Motivation: you need to love this.
  • Learning: we’re hiring you for your ability to learn quickly not because we think you already know it all.

Perks:

  • We’ll pay you £45-65k/annum based on experience
  • Up to 1% of the company
  • A nice place to work and a sparkly new laptop

Not sure? That’s cool, let’s grab a beer/coffee and talk it through.
