About the company

Housekeep is making it totally painless to find an amazing cleaner. We measure
our success first by the number of cleaners that want to work with us, and
second by the number of satisfied customers who keep booking with us week after

We use technology to grow these numbers month after month, and to increase our
efficiency as we scale. We've already proved that this business has legs: we
have industry-leading operations technology and great underlying economics.

Why we need you:

Disrupting the home cleaning market throws up a lot of hard problems: real-time
scheduling, job-allocation, routing and messaging to coordinate thousands of
complex home visits. And all this complexity has to be presented to our
cleaners, operations staff and customers with beautiful, intuitive user

We've got good foundational tools in place, built over two years by two
full-time, full-stack web developers. You would be the third pillar of the team,
joining early enough to influence tool-choice and architecture as we go forward.
We also want you to contribute to our collaborative and fun office atmosphere.

We want to work with a developer who cares about the way their code impacts the
people who have to use it.

Our current technology stack:

- Python on the server side, using Django as a web framework, and Django Rest
Framework for our API
- PostgreSQL for our database, using some of its advanced geographic modelling
- AngularJS on the clientside
- A hybrid mobile app for cleaners developed using Ionic on top of Cordova
(formerly Phonegap)

Your qualities

- You'll have experience in at least some of the above technologies.
- You can demonstrate a track record of building great products for the web
and/or mobile
- You'll be excited about understanding the real problems working people come up
against and fixing them with technology.
- You'll love the idea of being a big part of a small team: if you come up with
a great idea, you can take it all the way to production.

- CV
- LinkedIn profile

- 100 word cover letter on why you're excited about this role
