Salary Survey 2022
On a mission to help people who have been diagnosed with chronic kidney disease, this start-up are looking for their first backend hire.
Their mission is to make life better for people suffering from kidney disease by building one of the first algorithm-based behavioural change programmes. The application that does this brings together tech and health coaches that can be prescribed by doctors – yes, that’s a thing in Germany!
You’re going to have a huge influence on how this product is built – right now, there isn’t even a repo. As you can imagine there is a ton of greenfield work to get stuck into. Working closely with the Head of Engineering (who’s ex-Trainline and is going to be very hands on with code), for the first three months you’ll be getting everything ready to go online, before then starting to add product components.
There are going to be parts you’ll need to scale quickly, and others where you’ll have to prototype. The end goal is a product that is stable and secure. As you can imagine with just two of you initially working on the product, you’ll get a huge amount of autonomy – both in terms of how you work and the tools you use.
What experience do I need?
Due to the nature of the build they do need someone who’s got experience of building high scale systems. The Head of Engineering is keen to work serverless so big bonus points if you’ve done so on AWS before!
What’s in it for you?
Culture is key to these guys. You’ll be given freedom to work remotely, flexibly, in an autonomous way. They are an early stage start-up so there’s not a ton of benefits at the moment, though they are offering generous equity (as the first dev hire and the person who’s going to build the product, you’ll be well remunerated here), a £5K training budget and 25 days holiday (plus your bank hols).
Not to mention the company having an incredibly diverse workforce, cross-collaboration across teams, and lastly, a deep sense of meaning and purpose behind what you do, every single day.
