Software Engineer: Front End

£70k – £100k • 0.0% – 0.5%

No recruiters / No VISA sponsorship.

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

Short Term

We have a lot of front end & full-stack (Typescript / React / Node / GraphQL / Postgres) engineering across new software products which we’ve just launched to some amazing customers (e.g. Mars, Coca-Cola, Tesco)

Longer-Term

Grow with us and ship amazing products doing it. There’s a clear path and opportunities to grow from wherever you are now to senior-lead engineer and a whole range of software challenges, not limited to

  • 3D rendering of research environments (perhaps using three.js)
  • Sophisticated drag and drop interfaces & data visualization
  • Aggregated product search (probably ElasticSearch)
  • ML & heuristics for inferring product data & attributes
  • Loads of data engineering to integrate our products with client data sources

Work with Great Tools

  • Typescript
  • React
  • Styled Components
  • Webpack
  • Storybooks
  • GraphQL (Apollo)
  • Postgres (Prisma)
  • Redis
  • Snowflake
  • Docker
  • Pulumi
  • Kubernetes (Digital Ocean)
  • 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 international clients such as Heinz, Mars and Tesco as well as relax and have some fun together to celebrate our achievements.

Things You’ll Get

  • Autonomy and power over products that sit 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 70-90k based on ability, can be traded off against equity depending on what you want.
  • Share options with fair terms.
  • 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 M-series MBP).
  • The clearest and most transparent communication we can manage at all times.
  • An experience: working at a startup should be exciting and this should be no exception.
  • Opportunities to travel to meet clients nationally/internationally.
  • A similar bonus structure as the sales team if you make an introduction to a big FMCG customer that turns into a sale.
  • Something missing? Please let us know.

Things We’ll Need From You

  • A desire and ability to build great software products.
  • To perform well in a semi/unstructured working environment.
  • To talk directly to the people using the software we build and empathise with their issues to prioritise our work.
  • A strong appreciation for UX/UI and an ability to fill in the gaps where necessary (designs for 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.
