Get Mads is the world’s first impact-as-a-service platform allowing businesses to easily integrate positive impact across every touchpoint. We are on a mission to tackle some of the greatest challenges facing the world today by incentivising and inspiring businesses to take action on issues like climate change, poverty, and ecological destruction.

We help businesses understand the positive impact they can have on the planet and give them the tools they need to take action through our impact platform. We show them the tangible benefits acting for our planet can also bring to their brand image, customer base, and ultimately bottom line. In doing so, we create a clear set of logical benefits that makes joining our mission more than just altruism, it makes business sense.

Having secured VC backing we are expanding our team with a view to rapidly scale and expand the business. Therefore we are seeking an experienced hands-on over-achiever who thinks outside of the box, is not afraid to take ownership, will deliver unique ideas and likes to work in a fast-paced environment.

As a Back-end Engineer, you will build the backbone of our full-scale application. You will work collaboratively and interactively deliver a fully functioning web-based application. You will closely work together with our CEO who has so far built the application and will have significant decision making power on the technologies and architecture that we use to build out the platform.

The bottom line is that the things we build help make the world a better place and we would love for you to join us and help!
