About the Company
Our client are a fast growing startup who have grown their headcount from 3 to 70 in 2 years and have quickly dominated their industry. Think Amazon, but a marketplace for healthcare and pharmaceuticals where suppliers and buyers meet. They curate personalised dashboards for their customers powered by data-driven analytics and AI to assess risk, maximise product margins and optimise processes.
The Role & Project
Senior Software Engineers in this team are responsible for one functional area, from product conception to delivery to customers. You’ll spend your time brainstorming and coding independent tech components related to your functional areas.
In your first 6 months you’ll develop a deep understanding of non-functional requirements like reliability, availability, scalability etc to make key technical decisions. You’ll contribute to shaping internal engineering processes, advocating for best practices and mentoring junior engineers.
So how do they measure success? For them success isn’t having a large number of customers, it’s about delivering exceptional value to a smaller number of customers. You’ll have access to highly experienced founders, for both technical and non-technical aspects.
Currently there are 13 people in the UK team led by the CTO, mostly full stack and backend engineers and that’s where the need for these roles come from for front-end weighted engineers.
The Tech Stack
Their full stack is :
TypeScript, React, GraphQL, Node, JVM, AWS. You'd be focussed on the frontend tech of course!
-Capable of collaborating with remote multinational teams. Its not a time zone issue but being appreciative of different cultures.
-Not afraid to speak out and be honest.
-Self motivated, they don’t micromanage.
-Honesty and integrity are highly valued here.
Progression & Training
-On day one you’ll get a transition path to outline what your next role will be and the steps needed to achieve progression. Not everyone enjoys management so your path will be tailored to your personal career goals.
-They have an internal tool to have full transparency around progress and you’ll work with your line manager to identify areas of improvement to ensure continuous development.
-Regular pay reviews
Salary and Benefits
The salary bracket for the senior role is £60,000 – £90,000 dependent on experience. There is flex above this for exceptional candidates.
-4.5% pension contribution
-26 holiday days + bank holidays (34 total)
-£10,000 per year annual bonus paid quarterly
-£700 equipment stipend, anything you buy belongs to you.
-£2000 per year training budget

-Wellbeing benefits like Headspace subcriptions
-Team holidays twice a year (all paid for)
Why You Should Apply
Startups have a reputation for being disordered, stressful and require a lot of overtime. Thats not the case with this company, they specifically ensure no one is working outside of their normal hours, even if there’s a release on Monday you should not be working on the weekend. They don’t micromanage, if you get your work done in a few hours you don’t have to fill the rest of your day to look like you’re doing something.
If you need a further example of how wellbeing is a priority, a new employee needed to work reduced hours for 2 months for personal reasons, this was immediately approved and they are still being paid in full.
This is a great opportunity for someone who wants to be a part of a progressive company who encourage ownership to all, not just those in leadership.
