Description

Software Developer

We use technology to innovate on everything from our customer facing automated valuation model to the tools our team uses internally.

We believe every UK homeowner should have access to an accurate and honest valuation of their property in a matter of seconds and let them sell it in a matter of clicks. Looking to build new products from scratch? Want to solve unique, technically complex problems? Then this could be the place for you . Become part of our early engineering team and help shape our team, practices, product and culture from the very beginning.

Who we are

We’re an ambitious team with big plans. Our goal is to be one of the defining tech companies of our generation by using technology to rebuild the process of selling a house from the ground up.

To us it seems crazy that people’s biggest asset is also the least liquid. Our vision is to allow every UK home-owner to get a fair offer on their house in minutes.

We have previously founded GoCardless and Songkick and are already on a faster growth trajectory than both and backed by Europe’s leading VCs and entrepreneurs.

Having done it before we know what it takes to be successful. We’re looking for exceptional people, excited by the prospect of building something that matters.

On a day-to-day basis you will:

  • Work as part of an Agile engineering team that embraces collaborative working
  • Develop the core consumer facing product, using Elixir and JavaScript via iteration based on customer feedback and metrics - we take a data driven approach to building tech
  • Develop tools to support our internal operations team to drive operational efficiency
  • Work closely with our design team (Matt - Product manager and Sean - Designer) to implement a modern and high quality front end experience
  • Dabble in new tech to help push the boundaries of what we’re building
  • Work with these fine folk to help build a world class team

We think you’ll probably:

  • Be passionate about technology and have experience of building products for the web ideally using Elixir (previous Elixir experience is desirable but not essential, we’re sure you’ll pick it up quickly)
  • Have a keen eye for details and care deeply about building reliable and well-tested systems
  • Want to work in an early stage start-up environment
  • Have a passion (verging on obsession) for making things more efficient and driving automation
  • Be curious and passionate about troubleshooting, actively seeking out problems and then solving them


Things which would be useful, but not required:

  • Have experience with front end development, including client side JavaScript.
  • Have experience with Linux system administration.
  • Have experience as part of an engineering team at a fast growing company.
