  • Experience of architecting new systems and making sensible, pragmatic tech choices.
  • Proven track record in a start-up environment - ‘Been there done that’.
  • Experience in a high growth environment 🌳.

  • A focus on quality and an understanding that sometimes you go slow, to go fast.
  • Eagerness to learn and help the company become a truly tech-focused company.
  • Alignment with our core values: Customer Focused, Drive to be the best, Think Big, Trust & Integrity, Continuous Improvement and Be Humble. 🧠

Perks, glorious perks:

As well as a competitive salary, we offer you a position in one of the hottest international startups and a chance to truly be a part of something great and challenging.

  • Lots of freedom to be creative and input your own ideas into the future of the company. 🤓
  • Fast-paced, exciting environment with loads of opportunities to progress your career, learn new skills and experiment with new ideas.
  • No red-tape or stifling hierarchy. We make stuff happen and if it doesn't work we move on quickly and try something new.
  • Flexible work hours and an opportunity to experience company trips at a discounted price and possible opportunity to recce one of our latest adventures.
  • Everyone gets a pension and crucial roles receive Equity too, because we believe in creating a Team of Founders. 💰
  • You'll be entitled to 31 days annual leave including bank holidays.🏖️
  • You’ll be entitled to an annual cash award of £700 to use for either a free flight to a destination that we sell, or put towards training and expand your skills in new areas.
  • ‘Master of Fun’ company wide and team events (from kayaking to axe throwing, we make it our mission to experience all the adventure London has to offer). 🚣‍♀️
  • Great offices with free delicious lunches, fruit, snacks, coffee and Friday drinks!🍺
