Technical Lead / Software Engineer (full stack) - Cardiff – up to £70,000 + Benefits & Equity

We’re working with an exciting start up who’ve moved to Wales and looking to hire the first member of the technical team in their new office. We’re looking at a technical lead or a senior developer who is keen to learn and develop their skill set rising to the role of a CTO in the future as the team grows.

The successful candidate will represent the business on the tech front alongside the CEO and we’re looking for someone who ideally has experience with Node.JS, MongoDB and AWS. However… If you don’t have those skills or have played around a bit in your spare time and interested in this and things like machine learning then we recommend still getting in touch! we’re really looking for someone with varied experience (i.e. not spent entire career doing one thing, with one technology) …

We’re keen on people picking skills up as they work and really its more about having a solid grasp of, and around 9/10 years of experience in, commercial back-end and systems architecture, with familiarity a with JS frameworks. We'll need someone who is confident enough in his/her skills and experience to be in charge!

The successful developer will improve on an advanced MVP that is currently used by high profile business customers in the property sector, as well as establish software engineering best practices.
You’ll also will be responsible for the Software-as-a-Service platform’s architecture and development and have access to consultant and outsourced tech support as resources until they grow the technical team -- which you will help build! The role will involve problem-solving on all levels, from setting a strategic technical direction to writing code.

The company have already grown rapidly and have a great client base with plenty of investment!! They’re a start-up of very high visibility in their industry, so it would be a good career step for whoever wishes to develop that profile.
Equity option is a standard 4-year vesting scheme, and they are willing to be quite generous for the right candidate whose motivation we wish to align with the long-term success of the company.

If you have a passion for problem-solving, you will never run out of interesting technical challenges here; If you are a developer and feel you have progressed as far as you can in your currently company then the opportunity to progress your career is substantial and we would highly recommend getting in touch.
