Our client is a VC-backed start-up on a mission to become the first vertically integrated florist software company.
Since launching in 2016 they’ve been voted one of the top UK 100 startups two years in a row, as well as having created long lasting relationships with florists across all of the UK and New York.
They’re looking to give florists the tools to create and deliver bouquets to their communities. You’d be working on developing a tool that provides inventory management, a wholesale shop and even website builders and POS systems. It is the first vertically integrated SaaS for this area of the market, so lots for you to get stuck into!
You’ll be collaborating closely with their multi-disciplinary team to deliver new features, including with designers to ensure the finest user experience. They are looking for someone who can help define a strategy to perform code migrations, helping to set up code standards and processes and helping to mentor younger engineers – they’ve a huge show and tell culture that works really well for people wishing to kick on. They like to tackle any problems as a group, so it’s a chance to work in a close team who like to discuss any problems they encounter.
You’ll predominantly be working with React, so ideally you’ll have significant experience working with the framework. They’re also big fans of TypeScript but it’s not essential you’ve worked with this before, so long as there is a willingness to do so going forward.
They work with Node on the backend so if you’ve any experience here that would be a huge bonus. They’re open to you working completely on the frontend or transitioning to full stack in the medium term, so it’s a great opportunity if you do want to pick up new skills.
These guys are very early on in the development of their product so there is a real opportunity for you to have input into how things are developed. They’re offering a salary of up to £85K (though have said they’ll go higher for the ideal person) as well as share options. They’re in the process of securing a new office in Central London (and moving to a hybrid model of 2/3 days a week there from the new year) and you’ll be joining a hungry, innovative team. You’ll also get a MacBook Pro and they’ve got lots of ideas for more perks in the future.
