Hiring (and being hired) is one of the most important things we do, but humans are frankly terrible at it. We look for the wrong things, we’re biased, and we don’t follow the data.

Applied is on a mission to help organisations hire the best person for the job, regardless of race, gender or background. Our platform helps teams manage their hiring process with more precision and less bias. Everything is measured so teams can understand what works and that allows them to constantly measure, improve and give candidates useful feedback!

We've proved that it's a better way to hire, for all involved.

We're lucky enough to be scaling the business and need a Software Engineer to work within our tech team. We need teams who are user-driven, creative and want to leave the world just a little better than they found it.

This is your chance to get in on the ground floor of a fast growing, investor-backed start-up and be part of changing the way hiring is done on a global scale. You can read more about us in the New York Times, Harvard Business Review, TechCrunch and New Scientist.

The job  

What's exciting about it from an engineering perspective:

  • Fast moving user-centric team working on a groundbreaking and important product that will (and already has!) change people's lives.

  • Forward leaning tech, including Lambda, Fargate, Terraform, Elasticsearch, Vue.js, Node.

  • Big focus on real-time reporting, elastic-searches and data-visualisations of very interesting data sets.

We're looking for folks who are:
  • Passionate about making high quality digital products that add real value to people's lives

  • Are able to collaborate effectively, inspire those around them, and lead with empathy.

  • Understand the business objectives, the needs of the broader team and work with product managers to prioritise accordingly.

  • Comfortable working in an early-stage environment, and the uncertainty (fun!) and change that brings. Get the right balance between beautiful code, and getting things done.

You'll benefit from:

  • equity in the business

  • employee benefit & access to spill 

  • being involved in other aspects of the business, from strategy, management and training, to shaping team culture

  • being part of something that's both commercially successful and socially important
