Job Description

Flash Pack is looking to expand our tech team!

Our mission is to create 1 million friendships through the power of travel and technology. We do that by having people go on a boutique adventure trip on their own, and pairing them with others doing the same thing.

We are remote first, synchronous within the London +-2 timezone, and we meet in London quarterly so you'll need to be able to get to London semi-regularly.

You can learn more about about structure, process and culture on our team page »

This role is within our Growth team, supporting development of our web presence, booking experience and working closely with our sales, marketing and content teams. It would be an advantage to have delivered business goals via experimentation and measurement, and to be comfortable with web and marketing technologies. The ideal candidate is comfortable supporting non-technical colleagues to navigate engineering tradeoffs and approaches to maximise overall impact.

Requirements

We want the right person, not a checklist ticked. If you don’t quite hit all the criteria, you should still apply!

  • You're a hands on engineer, either already with line management responsibilities, or keen to take this on.
  • You've got deep experience with a programming language and have strong feelings about habits that make a great and effective engineer
  • You're comfortable coding for and debugging within a modern web stack
  • You care about building an effective team through 1-1s, coaching, celebrating successes and proactively addressing issues
  • You want to input into what we’re building, not just how we build it. You feel passionate about supporting other engineers with this mindset
  • You’re keen to learn, understand that growth requires some failure and have a habit of seek feedback on both your work and your style.
  • You’re empathetic and able to express yourself.
  • You get that the team is more important than yourself.

Day to day you will:

  • Work with the team to deliver high quality software (approx 70% hands on). We primarily code in Typescript, but integrate with some software written in PHP.
  • Line manage around 2-4 engineers, supporting with career development, coaching and supporting each of them to be the best version of themselves
  • Support engineers to plan and deliver products and features, using the right tools for the job.
  • Improve and maintain any services we build.
  • Support your team and be the glue when necessary.
  • Give back, and leave a ladder behind you.

You’ll do this in line with our engineering values:

  • Simplicity is key
  • Write it for the next engineer

Salary: The salary range for this role is between £90K - £105K depending on experience. We also offer stock options after your first year with the company.

Interview Process:

  1. Chat with one of the talent team. This will be focused on fit with the role and business.
  2. Chat with one of our tech team. This will be focused on motivations and behaviours, but will also include a short code-read exercise.
  3. Technical interview with one of the engineering team, this will be more hands-on in the language of your choice.
  4. Culture fit interview with our CPTO Morgan.
  5. Meet a Flash Pack founder - our CEO Radha, or CMO Lee.
