Full Stack Engineer

What we are building

We are building a platform for business buyers and sellers to collaborate transparently. Salespeople choose BuyerDeck over email for real time communication, sharing content and driving buyer engagement. Think slack for buyers and sellers.

Challenge

We have a geographically divided business (London), and tech (Riga) team that is impacting our ability to innovate and grow the business. We have bootstrapped to profitability, have 25 enterprise sales customers(1700 sales users on board), 12,000 buyers, and recently won an award from the world’s largest accelerator, MassChallenge. We also have an agreement with salesforce.com to launch a new version of our product on their platform! As a result, we are at a critical stage and need to maintain high levels of innovation on our current offering. This is proving difficult given we have a distributed team.

What you will do

As our first engineer in London, you will directly be involved in customer development and product strategy. You will be the point of reference for the remote engineers and will lead the building of a new team in London.

The opportunity

You will be getting significant equity in a startup with solid traction prior to raising any venture investment. You have the opportunity to work on a greenfield project whilst leading a team to support our existing product in the interim. To help bridge the two teams we retreat to a new city every three months for a week…

Qualifications

We aren’t terribly fussed about qualifications, but you should be completely at home with Javascript, have some production-level experience with AngularJS, NodeJS, Java or similar, and can dive easily into any framework. HTML and CSS are as basic to you as reading. You will consider yourself an experienced engineer and have at least five years experience writing great code.

Ideally you will

Have experience working on scalable, high impact and high performing products.
Be comfortable creating products using a performant, typed language such as Python, C++ or Java
Be confident and open to working with changing requirements and ambiguity. We move fast, so change should be something you enjoy.

Things we use

Application and data: Bootstrap, Nginx, Java, JavaScript, AngularJs, MongoDB, PostgreSQL, Sass, Firebase, Spring, Rackspace Cloud servers, Groovy.

DEVOPS: Github, Git, Bower, Gulp, Kingdom, Ansible, IntelliJ IDEA, Gradle, Logentries

Visa sponsorship and additional information

We have a sponsorship license to sponsor you to work from our London offices if you need one. We think this is a rare opportunity for an entrepreneurial developer, since we’ve still got a small team and are a true early-stage startup, yet are on solid financial footing and have happy customers.
