Role; Mid & Senior Full Stack TypeScript Software Engineers
Location/ working arrangement; Nottingham/ Derby (East Midlands) preferred as that’s where his other UK team mates are, but they are Remote First- absolutely no office visits are compulsory, but if you do want to see your team, that can be arranged.
Salary; Around the £70k mark (plus equity), but it’s flexible, so let me know what you’d need to consider the role
I’M SO EXCITED TO RECRUIT THESE ROLES!
I have had an awesome conversation with the CEO of the company, and was grinning from ear to ear- he’s such a great guy and the roles he’s given me for mid and senior Full Stack TypeScript Software Engineers make me happy!
So, here’s the low-down…
The company was formed a year or so ago- so is a fresh start-up- to address a genuine problem with the tax system in the US, from the CEO’s own negative personal experience with it.
He has raised seed money, has gotten almost to MVP stage, has signed up a number of clients already and gotten the company up to around 20 people, across the globe- some in Israel, the US and a couple in the UK.
He is looking to expand his UK-based R&D team with these Engineers. He has hired a couple of people in the Nottingham/ Derby area, so it would be great to find more people in the local area so that if an office or team visits are requested by the team, it’s easier to wrangle people.
This said, he is a massive proponent of remote working, and even has budget for you to improve your home office- he wants everyone that works with him to have a great environment, tech, people around them and to have fun whilst doing it.
I can’t stress enough just how much emphasis that the CEO puts on personality and enjoyment at work- he constantly has a smile on his face, and is a joy to interact with. He wants to surround himself with people who have the same joie de vivre, so grumpy cynics need not apply!
He believes in true flexible working, and doesn’t look at anything other than output. They have a stand up at 9:15am GMT, which is the only time he wants everyone in the same place at the time, so the rest of the time, you can work literally whenever you want as long as you get the job done.
As it’s a start-up, and still growing, the nature of role will most likely see you going above and beyond, sometimes working evenings and weekends to get critical work done. This is something to seriously consider when applying, as if this really isn’t for you, then don’t apply. It won’t be forever, but they are at the early stages where all hands need to be firmly on deck. He expects everyone to take responsibility for their own workload, and so if you’ve completed what needed to be done, and want to take a few days off, go ahead! Essentially, output is everything.
Their tech stack is;
Front End- TypeScript and Vue3
Back End- TypeScript and Node, MongoDB, Postgres
Infrastructure- Render (it’s a wrapper, similar to Heroku) for AWS, and MonoRepo. They will be moving to AWS proper at some point soon!
If this sounds really good to you, then apply now, or drop me a line to find out more!
