FULL STACK WEB DEV (first in-house tech employee)


typescript node London, UK

What is unique about this opportunity?

This is an exciting opportunity for a full-stack web developer to join an award winning and Innovate UK backed startup as a first in-house tech employee.

Our mission and purpose are to empower parents to fully and truly enjoy early parenthood. Solid and stable childcare is at the core of that.

We’re myTamarin, AI-powered childcare matchmaker; grounded in psychology and powered by technology. We’re developing a unique matchmaking technology to connect parents and childcarers based on personality and parenting style.

While matchmaking has never been used for childcare, it is extremely important given the intimate nature of the relationship. We’re pioneering a new approach to solving problems in an industry that is largely underserved both in terms of technology and psychological insight.

You will have the opportunity to deliver huge value to families, and the broader society. Join us to shape the company as well as the childcare industry as a whole.

More about the team

Technology is at the very core of both our business and our users’ experiences, and we’re based in the heart of London’s vibrant startup community (WeWork Marylebone). You will be working alongside the founder, a data scientist and a matchmaker, as well as our overseas development team.

We are a fun and fast-paced team who believe in collaboration above all. You can get involved in any aspect of the business you are interested in.

We love creating simple and elegant solutions to deliver the best user experience!

Your preferred profile

You can hit the ground running, are interested in learning new things, and are comfortable working in a changing environment.

You must have the right to work in the UK. (We can’t sponsor visas just yet! But come back to us later.)
