Job summary

Launched in 2013, The Business Plan Shop is on a mission to make it easier to start and grow a business and make it harder for companies to fail.

90% of businesses in the OECD are small businesses and they account for 60% of the total employment, therefore their successes and failures matter!

We think the survival rate of businesses is too low, on average only 50% survive more than 5 years after creation, and we are on the verge of one of the biggest recessions in History...

Now more than ever, small business owners need strong business plans, which means they need The Business Plan Shop, and by extension they need you!

If you’re up to the challenge and want to join a fast-growing SaaS company where the code you deploy will make a real difference to the 150k+ small business owners and entrepreneurs who will use The Business Plan Shop this year: this is the job for you!

This is a great opportunity for someone who is hands-on, entrepreneurial, wants to join a small team where he or she can have more responsibilities than in a large company, and likes to work across the full spectrum from architecting new features to deploying well-tested code in production.
