Jump into an empowered role doing full stack feature development for Flock. 

We're a London-based, VC-backed technology startup, operating at the bleeding edge of both the drone and “insurtech” revolutions. We’re data scientists, designers, and engineers, pioneering the future of Big-Data-driven insurance for drones (and beyond!). We've partnered with Allianz to launch our first product: pay-as-you-fly insurance for drones. 

We have been featured in The Economist, Financial Times, The Guardian, Mashable, and more; we have pitched to Her Majesty The Queen, and travelled the world to present our technology. We are a small, well-connected, highly energetic team from both academia and industry, based in Farringdon, London. We get things done at lightning speed, set optimistic objectives, and work hard to meet them.

About the role:

You will report directly to the Tech Lead and hold a lot of responsibility and influence in our technological decision-making process. You will become familiar with all parts of our modern stack and will be asked to exercise judgment in key decisions, such as assessing tradeoffs between design and feasibility. You will choose when to hack, and when to invest time in architecture. You will engineer your features to be scalable and resilient in a multi-platform mobile application, sitting atop a micro-service platform.

You will work closely with product/UX, levelling up your understanding of design theory. You will also learn how to construct complex SQL queries, and how to understand and navigate the tradeoffs inherent in running a service architecture based system, which is continuously deployed several times a day with zero downtime.

Who are you?

You are a dedicated and resourceful engineer with an understanding of what it means to work with a production system, and have knowledge of Agile processes, particularly Continuous Delivery. You have experience building Single Page Applications, Mobile Applications, or both. You have experience working with an interpreted server-side language such as NodeJS, Ruby on Rails, or similar. You are a perfectionist, delivering pixel perfect implementations of complex design specs. You live and breathe computers, and hold opinions on the CAP triangle, authentication schemes, and the multiple models of asynchronicity contained in Javascript. You are humble and know when to ask for help. Most importantly, you are focused on becoming a great engineer and thrive in a position of responsibility.

What we offer:

  • A competitive salary, including stock options

  • Large amounts of autonomy and empowerment

  • An idyllic office space in Clerkenwell, London, alongside a range of innovative startups, all working at the cutting edge of urban innovation in London’s `Geovation Hub`.

  • Weekly team lunches

  • Quarterly team offsite

Salary range £28,000 — 40,000
