  • Headline Benefits: B Corp, Remote Working, 30+ Holiday days, Flexible Hours

You’ll be leading a team of 7 working on the architecture, delivery, and development of new features for their flagship product, including working with the CTO on strategy and roadmap development.


The current tech stack is MEAN-focused with AI-based components and serverless AWS deployments, so the ideal candidate with have a strong JavaScript/Typescript background with some knowledge or interest in cloud deployments and artificial intelligence.

The role will involve a split of both hands-on and hands-off work so applicants should be comfortable with the stack and also leading code reviews, mentoring, and assigning project resources.

As a B-Corp business, our client has a strong focus on social responsibility and the well-being of their employees. Because of this, you can expect over 30 days of holiday a year (plus bank holidays!) as well as a flexible employer that truly cares.

An ideal candidate will look for a blend of technical leadership and hands-on work, interested in joining a company as they scale.


  • Experience leading a small Engineering team (5-10)
  • Strong experience with JavaScript/Typescript Engineering (MEAN/MERN preferred)
  • Experience with coaching and mentoring
  • Experience working on a SaaS product
  • Knowledge of B2B2C would be an advantage
  • Knowledge of AWS and Infrastructure / Artificial Intelligence (AI) would be a benefit
  • Knowledge of security implementation (ISO27001)

The company has flexibility at the core of its employee offering, allowing employees to get their work delivered at a time and place to suits them.

Whether it be that you need a few hours in the middle of the day for an appointment or to work abroad for a couple of weeks - their flexible approach empowers individuals to work their job around their life, not the other way around.

That said, you can expect to meet up with the rest of the tech team once or twice a month in Bristol and the whole business once a quarter in London – so flexibility for some level of travel or locality will be necessary!
