Come and build great software at a startup delivering exceptional FMCG / CPG research & data products.

Short Term

We have a lot of front-end (Typescript / React / GraphQL) focussed work that we need to ship to meet the opportunities presented by some new international clients.

Less-Short Term

Grow to lead this product and the engineering team as we progress as a company. There’s a huge variety of products and software that we’re excited about delivering, such as

  • 3D rendering of research environments (perhaps using three.js)

  • Sophisticated drag and drop interfaces

  • Aggregated product search (possibly Elastic Search)

  • ML & heuristics for inferring product data & attributes

  • Loads of data engineering to integrate our products with client data sources

Work with Great Tools

  • Typescript (npm / Lerna toolchain)

  • React

  • Styled Components

  • Webpack

  • Storybooks

  • GraphQL (Apollo)

  • AWS Lambda (serverless)

  • Netlify

  • CI/CD (GitHub actions)

Work with Great People

We’re a small, high-performance team who care about what we’re working on and each other. Your commercial colleagues will be ready and excited to put the products we ship in front of huge clients such as RB, Mars and Tesco as well as relax and have some fun together to celebrate our achievements.

Things You’ll Get

  • Autonomy and power over the direction of the product that sits at the core of this startup

  • A flexible working environment - as long as the results are getting delivered, just figure out a schedule that works for you

  • A good salary, pencilled in at GBP 50-90k and based on ability, can be traded off against equity depending on what you want

  • Share options with fair terms

  • A similar bonus structure as the sales team if you make an introduction to a big FMCG customer that turns into a sale

  • An end of year performance-based bonus.

  • As little bureaucracy as we can get away with (but no less).

  • Standard benefits like pension etc

  • The best equipment we can buy you (an M1, assuming Docker runs on it by your start date)

  • The clearest and most transparent communication we can manage at all times

  • An experience: working at a startup should be exciting and this could be no exception

  • Some opportunity to travel to meet clients

  • Something missing? Please let us know

Things We’ll Need From You

  • A desire and ability to build great software products

  • To talk directly to the people using the software we build and empathise with their issues to prioritise our work

  • An appreciation for UX/UI and an ability to work in less structured environments (designs for minor features won’t always be readily available)

  • To be able to provide and receive clear and honest communication

  • A broad sense of responsibility - it’s a startup: nothing is someone else’s job

Other Relevant Information
  • 100% remote until Covid is over, then likely a balance of WFH/office-based.

  • We’d like you to start ASAP

  • Our revenue grew over 40% in 2020, which was a pretty crazy year.

  • We are committed to providing equal employment opportunities to people of all backgrounds.
