A funded pre-seed fintech startup is looking for a Senior Javascript Developer with 3+ years experience in Node.js and 2+ years experience React.js to manage the development of our key software product.

About Further

In the past, venture capital funds have been accessible to only high net worth investors, with fund minimum investment levels as high as £250,000. Earlier this year, Further opened this space up, providing access to venture capital investing for all investors, with minimum investments from £1,000.

Further’s ability to reduce minimum investment levels has been a result of our software system, which automates investor onboarding, administration and reporting, enabling us to manage customers at scale. Following consistent inbound requests from funds in the market, we are now expanding our software to include cutting edge fund management functionality, so it can be sold as B2B SaaS.

Our software will be used by market-leading venture capital funds (some we work with closely already) to enable them to automate investor onboarding, fund administration and reporting for all their investors. Our solution is called FundOS: it is the world’s first modern, full operating system for investment funds.

Your role as a Senior Javascript Developer

Further currently works with an outsourced development team to build our software. To date, they have delivered on our consumer product’s build, but we have now reached the point where we need greater internal engineering oversight.

Developing our software for B2B sale comes with higher complexity and greater technical importance. FundOS’s reliability, integrity and security are rapidly becoming the backbone of our business.

Your role will include:

  • Designing and building new features of the system based on detailed specification
  • Taking on the management of the build from the outsourced team, while working with them and using them for parts of the build while their knowledge is transferred to you
  • Setting the development standard and ensuring the system is built to these standards
  • Ensuring key testing processes are carried out
  • Ensuring the system is built in line with security best practices
  • Consulting with and advising the co-founders on the product’s long-term development plan

Our product is built in Node.js (back end) and React.js (front end). The application database is hosted on MongoDB and the system is hosted by Amazon Web Services.

Your background
  • Experience of working in a high-quality development team, with good knowledge of best practices
  • Experience of working on a large project
  • Experience supporting on pre-build activities, such as estimation and specification
  • 3+ years experience in Node.js
  • 2+ years experience React.js
  • Ability to oversee other developers
  • Knowledge of security best practices
  • Experience in working with startups - we are looking for an adaptable ‘can do’ individual that is driven and accustomed to a fast-paced problem-solving
