Here at Flexa, we’re on a mission to bring transparency to the global hiring market 🌍

But what does that mean 🤔

We work with companies to get them discovered as truly flexible places to work, by verifying them through our two-stage Flexification™ process. Our platform enables users to find out which companies offer the working environment that they want through our flexibility filters. 

We have over 400,000 users, 150+ companies, and we are just closing our latest round of funding… So, we are looking for someone to work alongside Tim, our CTO!

As our first full-time engineer you will play a key role in creating new functionality for our clients, optimising our site UX and building internal tools to help Flexa work smarter.

Our tech 🤖

The core stack you’ll be working with is React (Next.js, JavaScript/TypeScript) and a GraphQL API. Our backend tech includes Node.js, MongoDB and Apollo. We’re cloud native and use a variety of services including AWS, Vercel and MongoDB Atlas. We’re young and keep things modern, no legacy code to struggle with here.

Day-to-day tasks will include 📩

  • Building new site functionality. Writing clear, robust code to deliver new site features for our clients and visitors. We try to iterate quickly and push often so your work will always be making a difference.

  • Collaborating with our product manager and design team to identify issues and devise solutions. Use your knowledge to guide discussion and build a development approach.

  • Improve our existing platform, testing and docs – always push best practices.

The key things that we will be looking for in applicants 🔑

  • At least 4 years of frontend web development experience.

  • Strong knowledge and recent experience of React

  • Solid fundamentals with modern HTML, CSS and JavaScript

  • Experience with data-fetching and integrating with APIs.

  • Experience with agile methodologies

Some nice-to-haves ✅

Below are some criteria that we would love someone to have at least a few of. Please don't be put off from applying if you don't match all of the below criteria. If you think you'd be brilliant at this role, then please apply anyway. 

  • TypeScript

  • Experience in developing REST or GraphQL APIs

  • Experience working with headless CMS tools

  • Knowledge or experience of SEO/analytics tools

  • Knowledge of any of the following libraries is a bonus: Next.js, Emotion, Material-UI, Apollo, Mongoose

  • Previously worked in a startup environment

What can we offer you? 🎁

  • We (genuinely!) think that this is an exciting opportunity to learn quickly in an environment that will support you and give you freedom and autonomy to shape the product and our future

  • c.45 days holiday! We offer 2 week-long company shut down periods, plus 25 days holiday, plus bank holidays. 

  • Flexible working! Work wherever you want (we can only support being based in the UK at the moment, though). We meet once a month in London for a co-working day and some drinks afterwards 

  • An office that you can use if you wish, based near Broadway Market in East London, but there’s no obligation to come in more than once a month on our nominated team day

  • Generous annual company and personal performance based bonus

  • A very easy-going but driven team that want to enjoy work and the team we work with 

  • A culture where we care about output, not how many hours you work. You will be given autonomy from day one, but we will always be here to help and guide

  • Employee share options scheme

We are a fast-growth startup and, generally, we have great work-life balance and don’t want or need people to work long hours, but some weeks are busier than others.

We're a super diverse team on all fronts apart from one very important one... Racial diversity. This is our number one hiring goal for this year and we know that we need to do better. We believe that a flexible working environment is a more inclusive working environment, and we are committed to making sure that Flexa is as inclusive as possible, so please never hesitate to talk to us about your wishes, needs, and circumstances.
