What is limber?

limber is an invoicing, payroll and pension tool for freelancers, solo-preneurs, gig workers and slashies.

We're also the World’s first digital co-operative for freelancers, which means that all of our app users get shares in limber for every single penny they earn – as the co-operative grows, so does the value of their shares.

The why

Like many startups, we think the world of work is changing - people are looking for more varied, more flexible and more empowering ways to work. Unlike many startups in this space, we put those people first.

Our mission is to help as many people as we can live a happy, flexible, but sustainable worklife. The happy, we think, comes from carving your own path as a freelancer or solo-preneuer either by using one skill at a time or many and by finally getting the flexibility many people yearn. And we help that by providing easy to use invoicing, admin and finance tools for our users. The sustainable comes from pooling all of your income towards a pension and into our unique equity scheme. We want to help people join forces and build value for their future - which is why we're proud to be a cooperative.

The role

We're looking for someone to lead limber’s engineering efforts - including managing our growing team of developers.

You’ll be responsible for making strategic technical decisions, managing the product team and providing your insight into our prioritisation. We like to run a fairly loose product roadmap to ensure we don’t get tied down to one direction and you’ll need to ensure that the team can respond to rapidly evolving business needs.

We're looking for someone with experience in our stack and/or the ability to turn their hand to whichever technology we choose. However, if you're a senior developer, looking to make the leap to CTO, then we'd love to hear from you. We'd be delighted either to hire a seasoned pro or someone willing to grow into the role.

Our tech stack is, on the front-end, AngularJS (migrating to React), Webpack + modular Javascript, Sass, Cordova, Ionic. Our back-end, Java, GraphQL, Couchbase, AWS / Google Cloud.

Application process

Just get in touch with a summary of who you are and what you're looking for - in whatever format works for you. Then you'll have a quick initial chat with Chris, our CEO, where we'll see if we can offer you what you're looking for.


After that, there'll be two rounds of interviews. One technical, one less so.


Looking forward to hearing from you!
