Software Engineer, Backend

Typescript / Node

Location: London (GB) or Remote

The company

Our mission is to empower more people around the world to grow their passion, project or idea into a business.

We will do this by creating an ecosystem of tools and resources that automates marketing, provides funding and increases knowledge.

Feed is the first step we're taking towards achieving our mission: it is an advertising tool that automates an entire marketing funnel for small budgets - discovering new audiences, keeping people engaged and ultimately growing revenue.

The platform is currently in closed beta, and the first ad network we have integrated is Facebook and Instagram. Feed achieves 3–10x the results of our users' other ads on a like-for-like basis, depending on the metric.

To date we have raised pre-seed and seed investment, including a crowdfunding that was more than 300% oversubscribed. We have also partnered with The Rattle, the 'passion economy' equivalent of yCombinator, to help us embark on our growth phase.

Joshua and Nick are the founders of Feed. Joshua is a digital marketing expert, designer and developer and, before Feed, he headed up digital and ran campaigns at influential record labels including Transgressive and Warp. Nick is an ex-investor, economist and musician and before Feed he was an investment professional at Warwick Capital and Bluebay. He holds a double first class MA in Economics from the University of Cambridge.

The role

This is an opportunity to join a start-up as one of its earliest core employees and play a crucial part in shaping its future. Working within a small engineering team, and closely with the founders, you will be part of the whole development cycle - from architecture design to implementation and maintenance.

In addition to building out new features, you will work to improve backend architecture, transitioning to microservices and a combination of non-relational and relational databases.

We’re looking for someone who is passionate about the product and is looking for an opportunity that puts them right at the centre of product and company decision making.

Your skills and experience

We don’t expect that you meet all the criteria listed, but would love for you to have experience in the majority of these areas:

  • 4+ years of experience
  • Use of Typescript / Javascript, Node.js
  • Containerisation technologies, in particular Cloud Run and Docker
  • Deploying and operating applications in cloud infrastructure (GCP / AWS)
  • Developing and designing REST APIs
  • CI/CD implementation using Terraform
  • OOP and TDD principles
  • ORMs and writing queries for non-sql and sql databases

As a plus:

  • Integrating Stripe, Facebook and other advertising APIs
  • Data engineering methodologies
  • Running web apps using Firebase
  • Use of Apache Airflow
  • Caching technologies like Redis
  • Frontend development, and familiarity with React.js, to support frontend engineers
  • Python

Our offer

We are looking for someone who is excited by our mission & the opportunity and has potential to grow into a core member of the team as the company grows.

Salary: dependent on experience.

Equity: equity options to be discussed after a trial period.

Location: we are a remote team though most of us are based in London so ideally we are looking for someone based within +/- 3h of UTC.
