Job description

Full Stack Engineer – React/Node/TypeScript – Learning platform - £60,000 - £80,000

I have an exclusive opportunity available for an experienced engineer to join a London based startup & help to deliver the MVP of their product!

The role

You’ll be working directly alongside the CTO to help build out a number of brand new features, as well as proactively coming up with solutions to complex technical issues that the business are facing. With you being the first full time engineering hire, you’ll need to be confident working within small teams & delivering features from day one. The platform is in build phase right now & the first full rollout is on track to be early Q1 2023. Between now & then, there’s features that need to be improved & plenty that need to be built from scratch!

If you’re looking for a role where you’ll be solving 2-3 tickets a day – this definitely isn’t for you. If you’re looking to join a business, have a huge impact on a product & be an integral part of the company moving forwards – let’s talk!

The stack you’ll be working with includes: TypeScript, React, Node.js, GraphQL, AWS, Postgres, Next.js, Serverless etc

You don’t need to have experience in all of these tools to be considered! It’s also worth mentioning that while they are looking for full stack engineers, they are happy to consider engineers with more of a focus on backend – so if you’re more of a Node/TypeScript person, let’s talk too!

The company

Their product is pretty unique. It’s a learning & development platform that’s sold into businesses & rolled out to their staff. It’s heavily aimed towards people who are very early on in their career (graduates, interns, apprentices etc) to give them the skills they need to be successful in their chosen career. The platform gives them access to a dedicated specialist within that area, along with live masterclasses with industry experts – hosted in a virtual meeting room.

The benefits to this are pretty endless. The business increase their staff retention & happiness, whilst staff members are given the opportunity to set their careers off to the best possible start!

The company are based in London & are ideally hoping for someone to come into the office on a weekly/fortnightly basis. They won’t bring you into the office if you aren’t needed there, so you won’t be sat in the office on your own. Some weeks, you may be there 1-2 days. Other times, you won’t be in the office for 3-4 weeks (if you don’t want to be!). They’re based in the Fitzrovia / Marylebone area, so very easy to get to.

What experience do I need?

  • You will need to have expert ability within TypeScript – either across the stack or purely on backend
  • Experience designing & delivering products / features from scratch
  • Confident doing API integrations with external platforms
  • Ability to work independently when required

What’s in it for me?

As well as a base salary of £60,000 - £80,000 DOE, you’ll get access to incredibly generous equity + much more including a dedicated career progression path, all hardware / setup of your choice, wellbeing budget & a dedicated L&D budget!
