POTENTIAL:
Eppik has global ambitions and this role can scale! We will be as flexible as you are committed.
• We are launching in the UK, France and Belgium but we have had interest from clients in Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Spain, Portugal and the US; so basically the model can scale!
• As one of our first employees working closely with the founder, you need to feel comfortable in a start-up environment and be very hands on but there is clearly the potential for a leadership/ CTO role.
• You will largely determine your direction and can grow the team around you.
• Competitive salary and benefits which will grow with the company, including equity.
• Flexible working hours from the outset. Working location London but can be discussed.
