Senior Full-Stack Developer (Fast-Growing UK Podcast Tech Company)

Senior Full-Stack Developer (Fast-Growing UK Podcast Tech Company)

Overview

We’re on the lookout for an experienced, senior full-stack developer to join the team building Captivate.fm, our fast-growing podcast hosting, analytics and marketing platform.

Working directly with our CTO Kieran and CEO Mark, the perfect candidate is a self-motivated, highly experienced, proven full-stack developer ideally with experience in a fast-growing SaaS business.

Key skills & qualifications

As this is a full-stack role within a fast-growing SaaS company, we’re looking for someone with a breadth of applicable knowledge who can apply that knowledge to continue to accelerate the company growth.

From day one you’ll have a big impact, with your code going into production straight away. This is a fast-paced, constantly changing workplace where no two days will be the same and you’ll genuinely have a say in how projects are run rather than simply take orders.

Ownership is key and from day one you’ll be responsible for making decisions that affect thousands of podcasters every single day and in shaping the evolution of our industry-leading podcasting platform.

Tech-wise, the team currently use Node.js on the backend, Angular on the front as well as all the usuals – HTML, CSS, jQuery etc.

What About You?

In an ideal world, you will be able to tick all the boxes above in relation to tech, have experience working in a start-up, be available immediately and be in budget. But… we live in the real world, too.

What is most important is that you fit into the culture that we have carefully created over the last couple of years. You will be a team player; always be looking to improve your technical skills and be able own each project that you work on. Our goal is to make the best and most intuitive software on the market, and we need people who push back when we suggest things that suck.

Secondly, your ability to work in a dynamic, fast-moving environment using modern tech is going to be paramount to your success. If you don’t have masses of experience when it comes to Node.js but your JavaScript programming is on point – they’ll happily work with you on upping Node skills. Similarly, if Angular isn’t something you’ve used in production but you have messed around with outside of work – great!? Experience with AWS is a big bonus! Worked in podcasting before? Well, that helps a bit.
