Senior Backend Engineer

*A chance to step up…*If you are an “under-utilised” software engineer hungry for more, here’s your chance to take on a leading role in a fast growing early-stage startup disrupting a $50bn market. We are backed by top investors and already have dozens of paying customers, but we are just getting started. As an early engineer, you’ll get to shape our product from the ground up and take decisions about the way we build it. At this point, nothing is set in stone, and your contributions matter.***About us*Have you ever wondered why most applications across HR, payroll and IT are so unpleasant to use? It is because they have never been designed to work well for the regular employee, but are tailored to a few administrators.We think this is fundamentally wrong, and that it’s time for a change. That is why we’re building a new generation people platform which is built to serve the needs of all employees. Zelt acts as a digital interface between employees and employers, in which you can manage resources like pay, benefits, company documents, apps and devices in a self-service manner, interact with your co-workers, and liaise with your manager on career progression and approvals. Pesky admin and inefficient processes magically disappear, helping you focus on what is important.***About you:** You have 5+ years experience as a software engineer* You have production experience with NodeJS and Typescript* You have worked with cloud infrastructure tools such as AWS Serverless* You care more about outcomes than exact implementation or tools used to get there* You are happy releasing an MVP when it’s “70% done”* You prefer working collaboratively and regularly pair up with colleagues* You are comfortable when faced with a lot of ambiguity, both technically and organisationally. You’re happy to tackle problems without a clear definition or solution* You want to help build a team, not just be part of it. You’re happy to take the extra time to explain things, provide feedback, and level up those around you* You use technical debt as a tool. You understand best practices and care about resilience, tests and documentation, but understand there are times we need to ship quickly and make trade-offs***Join us because you want to:** Get equity in a high growth startup backed by the investors of Notion, Spotify and Airbnb* Go on company retreats twice a year and travel to exotic places* Work with a diverse, international team on a product that positively impacts the world* Level up your skills in areas you don’t get to touch in larger organisations* Join a mission-led business where you are your own customer* Prove that you are more than just a cog in a big machine* Work in a swish office in central London* Put some big wins on your CV-* Pension* Unlimited holiday* Bi-annual workation trips* Cool office in central London* Video call* Programming exercise (created and reviewed by Radu)* Video call with Lead Engineer Rafa and/or Sandeep (conversation and pair programming)* Video call with Founder Chris* OfferNode.js, TypescriptNode.js, Serverless, JavaScript, AWS, Testing
