Software Developer

— Learn React & Node, successful start-up

Salary: £20K - £25K
Location: Bristol
Type: Permanent
Ref: 7343

Description

  • Work in an exciting start-up environment.
  • Work with great tech like React, Node, AWS, Docker and more.
  • Ethical business – help keep tourism profits benefitting local communities.

An exciting, fast-growth start-up is looking for a Software Developer to join their expanding team. Having already gone through multiple highly successful funding rounds, they have the resources behind them and expertise to become the next big tech success story in Bristol. There’s a real, ethical ‘buy local’ focus behind what they do and ultimately they are looking to provide local economies and communities with the benefits of the income tourism provides, without it disappearing abroad to travel providers. It’s a simple idea executed brilliantly and this is your chance to be part of the business’ on-going journey.

What experience you’ll need

  • You will be the third developer joining the technical side of the team. You’ll ideally come from product development based background, whether that’s agency, software house or as part of a larger commercial company.
  • Your key skills will be based around HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, jQuery and Git.
  • It’ll be beneficial if you've worked with any other elements of their stack; ReactJS, NodeJS, Redux,TypeScript, AWS, Docker and/or are familiar with mobile first development.
  • A keen eye for design or having previously worked in a role in which you’ve worked in close contact with any designers would be a great help.
  • Ultimately they are looking for someone with a wider interest in the business, happy to get involved and share their ideas for future growth.

What you’ll be doing

You’ll be working with the other developers to continue perfecting and polishing their primary product, as well as supporting clients when needed. Your work on the web platform will be focussed on both clients, customers and operators so there will be a flexibility needed in your development mind set. There’s a focus on using new and exciting tech, so keeping up to date with industry trends and being willing to learn new skills will be a big part of your role. You’ll be contributing to the design and implementation of any new features, some of which may be off the back of your ideas. It’s a small (11 currently) but close-knit team so you’ll be staying aware of how each team is doing and helping to provide quick and clever solutions.

What you’ll get in return for your talents

Here is the chance to join a successful start-up with an amazing and popular product, ready to push forward to their next big stages. You’ll be offered a competitive salary but the best part of the role here is the opportunity to join at ‘ground level’ and grow with the company. There will be plenty of chances for progression and self-development is something that’s really important here; you’ll be given plenty of chances to play with new tech and methods. You’ll be able to learn from the other developers and will have the chance to learn and work with industry desired tech like ReactJS and NodeJS, as well as getting day-to-day experience with more advanced tech like AWS and Docker. The team is really friendly and sociable and it’s definitely a fun working environment, as well as being dedicated and hard working.
