Full Time
*Meet your new business partner*
A couple years back I left my job in finance, learnt SEO from scratch, and brushed-up on my Java to create a MVP.
Since then, I got to product market fit, assembled a small team, and bootstrapped the company to profitability.
Now it’s time to scale. That’s where you come in!

*About the role*
I’m looking for a seasoned full stack developer who can come on board to take the lead on the technical side so that I can focus on other aspects of the business.
Your mission in a nutshell: fine tune the product, build internal tools, and put in place a strong technical team.
The role will be code heavy during the first couple of months. As the team grow, you can become the CTO, or stay in a senior dev role if you don’t like to manage people - up to you.
You’ll be offered a salary of £30k, shares in the company, and the opportunity to co-invest. Salary is voluntarily set at “survival level” so that we can recruit faster - the goal is to bring it to market rate within 24 months.

*About you*
* You are first and foremost a builder: you like to commit code and get a little bit excited each time you hit the deploy button.
* You can create a nice looking and easy to use UI without the need for a designer (though it never hurts to have one in the team).
* You get that some users are not tech savvy, which is why KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) is one of your core principles when designing new features.
* You know that they come in all forms and shapes, which is why mobile first is another one of your core principles.
* You are a safe pair of hands: your code is always bug free, unit tested, and follows OWASP’s best practices.
* You are senior: you bring proven processes and a network of potential recruits.
* You are ambitious and driven: for you it’s all about working hard to build applications that will make people’s life easier, stand the test of time, and could be worth a few quids at exit.

*About the company*
I don’t want to say too much here: clients and competitors tend to view us much bigger than we are - I’d like to keep it this way and not advertise that we are hiring a co-founder.
In a nutshell: we are a SaaS company that helps entrepreneurs start and grow their businesses.
In terms of metrics: we have 6 figures ARR and are on track to hit 100k new signups this year.

*About the stack*
Front end is built with Bootstrap and GWT (old school - I know), and we use Java and MySQL on the backend.

*How to apply*
You’re interested? Great!
Please make sure to include the following in your application:
* Your CV (obviously)
* A link to your LinkedIn profile
* A link to your Github or StackOverflow profile
* A brief cover letter explaining your story: who you are, what you’ve done in the past, why you want to join a startup, why us, and what you bring to the table

Thanks for taking the time to read!
