About Hero Team
Brick Lane, London. We are a small team made up of ex-startup and agency developers that have gone it alone to work together on interesting projects, with good people and to not take it all too seriously. We've seen the bar set extremely low in agencies and we think startups and small companies would be served better by people like us. Our workload is increasing, so some of them must agree, and now we’re looking to put more heroes in the team!
We specialise in building products for startups and since the projects last a good few months we get to build things we're proud of. Having worked in startups we also work in sprints and deploy constantly. So far we've built things like the frontend for a SaaS product, a dating app, software for an immersive projector system, a marketplace, a member club and we're currently working on a challenger bank. We have many more weird and wonderful projects lined up.
Our office is in the Truman Brewery on Brick Lane where we have our own space complete with kitchen, nice couch/Xbox setup and some Sonos speakers giving us a gentle backdrop of electronic music to work to. We try to come into the office each day but some of us have the odd morning or day at home so that’s not an issue.
About The Role
We are looking for mid-senior level developers that ideally can do a bit of everything. A focus of either front or back-end is fine but the ability to do either when required is what we need.
We want to help you improve as a developer but not hold your hand. We’re looking for someone who enjoys taking ownership of their part of a project (or the whole thing) and will take it upon themselves to deliver something excellent. You can even get into the design too if you want, it’s all pretty flexible.
Tech-wise it's pretty standard - we mostly use react on the front-end, django for the backend, and we deploy to AWS where we also dabble in serverless. We very often do UX/UI design for the client to so if you like that there is scope to be involved in that too!
You are a mid-senior level developer (3+ years) who like us has either worked in a startup or agency is looking to enjoy coding on fun projects with good people. You're pretty flexible as being a young outfit we play a little loose and fast so you don’t require rigid structure. If you like front-end then react experience is essential, and if you like back-end then we'd need python. At the end of the day it's just code so as long as you're good at writing it we don’t care.
