To work in the product development team you must have

Skills across a variety of technical platforms

Unlike a conventional startup where there is usually one product, our incubation projects take around 6 months and many run in parallel. We don’t know upfront what we’ll be working on, so a mix of technologies will need to be brought to bear.

The ideal candidate will

  • Have experience with a few different programming languages and frameworks
  • Be eager to play with new technologies and a good enough developer to do that quickly
  • Confident over the full stack of web and/or mobile development.

A product focus

We are not the type of organisation that has fully-specified product definitions and just need engineers to put their head down & churn out code. As with any early-stage startup, we are product focused, looking to get quick feedback from potential customers with short development iterations.

The ideal candidate will

  • Be engaged in the product development process
  • Enthusiastic about working closely with product managers & designers to help define the product
  • Not be worried about architecting the perfect solution and comfortable quickly prototyping solutions that move product development forward.

Experience & interest in the startup process

Founders Factory builds businesses. The focus of our incubator is on the very early stages of a startup, where many aspects of the business model (from customers & their problems to product solutions) are as yet unclear. Engineering is at the core of this process for a tech startup, so it’s vital we have technical leadership that can help steer from idea to viable business.

The ideal candidate will

  • Have worked in one or more early-stage startups
  • Interested in the idea of becoming a founding member of a startup.


  • 5 or more years experience as a software engineer.
  • Skilled in a variety of programming languages, e.g. Javascript, Python, Java, Swift, Go, C.
  • Knowledgeable of a range of modern web or mobile frameworks, e.g. Angular, React, Rails, Django, iOS, Android.

Salary range £40,000 — 50,000
