Who we are
We've just raised $25 million in Series B funding from Octopus Ventures and Eight Roads to fuel our next phase of growth. Read about it here.
We’re a high-growth Series A funded SaaS Martech company made up of a happy bunch of some 100+ people on the verge of a huge scale-up in 2022.
Our customers (including big brands such as Farfetch, Huel, Bloom & Wild and Nutmeg) love our product and want more of it - which means we need to double the size of our product and engineering teams in 2022.
Our referral marketing engine gives out rewards worth millions of pounds and serves hundreds of thousands of daily users. Our platform recently peaked at 900 requests per second and holds billions of rows of performance data for 400+ clients; it’s growing so fast we’ve introduced machine learning and are building out our data science team to build amazing product.
We anticipate 100% growth in headcount during 2022 – from 100 > 200 people.
We want to increase our 3 product teams to 6 by the end of the year.
This means there is plenty of development to be had and a lot of room for career opportunities.
To enable our next growth phase we need to hire an additional Senior Tech Lead with a minimum lovable product mindset (like us) who is comfortable talking product with stakeholders and customers alike; someone who enjoys working across the business as they help solve day to day growing SaaS business challenges; whilst building out our product vision (courtesy of our new CPO Roy Robinson – former Boxever VP Product)
Currently, our teams are made up of 3-5 software engineers, product manager, UX designer and QA engineer; working alongside our SRE team who own infrastructure and the tooling to ensure quick and smooth deployment.
What you can expect in your first 12 months:
Lead a high-performing engineering team, build great software and support your teams in daily, weekly and fortnightly rituals
Support and coach teams to hit goals and celebrate whilst ensuring performance is on track
Lead by example, including getting involved by coding around 50% of the time
Evaluate business value to prioritise your product work
Participate in the recruitment of new engineers
Support engineers in making good technical decisions
Our evolving tech stack currently looks like this:
A Majestic Monolith: PHP (Symfony) using SQS, KMS and various other AWS services and deployed in ECS (Fargate)
We're adding Python for data science and Typescript on the back end.
Frontend: React, Typescript & GraphQL
Data platform: MySQL on Amazon RDS with DynamoDB and BigQuery to deliver rapid querying across billions of rows of data.
Infrastructure management: AWS + Terraform and Docker
Sound like this could be the making of you?
It’s an amazing time to join us - as you can imagine with all this success the whole company is buzzing.
