The role

Great opportunity for a talented junior dev looking for a step up in responsibilities, or a senior dev looking to get their hands dirty in a young startup.

We are looking for someone who appreciates our vision, developing code and building platforms that most accurately reflect our company ethos.

You will hold an integral role in the founding team, as we aim to build out our platform over the next 24 months. We are looking for someone dedicated, who appreciates that sometimes, short deadlines and hard work are part and parcel of breaking down barriers and building something that can truly revolutionise an industry that has stood still for centuries.

This should lead to a CTO / Co-founder role if the fit is right. 


This should lead to a CTO / Co-founder role if the fit is right.  Therefore it will be a combination of base and equity. 

Our Company

Just closing a large pre-seed round, with money largely going towards building out a passionate team. Looking for employees that buy into our big vision and are here for the long term. It’s a great time to join the team, as cultural attitudes to death are shifting – and we are at the forefront.

Our Product

In its current form, Guardian Angel helps people cope with one of life’s hardest experiences - losing a loved one.

We know that talking about death isn’t something that everyone is comfortable with. Guardian Angel was inspired by a family tragedy, and our core belief is that being able to address death admin in a straightforward and simple manner will allow the days, weeks and months following the loss of a loved one to be focussed on the truly important things.

Once we help our users with this admin, we will guide them towards getting themselves prepared. Which is where our larger vision sits.

Why us?

At Guardian Angel, we’re passionate about helping people through one of life’s toughest tests. While this is, of course, a tech-focussed role our belief is that empathy and understanding should be built into the core thread of our business.
