About the role
We are seeking a savvy self-starter developer with a passion for making a positive difference to the world.
You will have the opportunity to make the role your own, room to excel and power to influence the direction of the business. For the right candidate, this could also develop into a CTO role.
For now, it's a part-time role working the majority of your time remotely but with time we will move to a co-working space in Bristol and your hours will increase. As a pre-money start-up, no one in the company is taking a salary so this is initially an equity position only with a salary soon to follow. We are in the process of sourcing funding which you will be involved in.
You will be responsible for building and leading efforts to build on from our Beta site and bring to market a mobile app.
Our platform is built in WordPress which is ok for now though its a bit flakey and limited.
We need to get our current site stable so that we can build traction asap. In the near future, the plan is to move away from Wordpress onto a more flexible platform that can grow with us.
General duties will include but not limited to:
- Leading discussions, and presenting on the technical aspects of our business.
- Working with the CEO to define requirements.
- Architecture, maintenance and any development of the site
- Hands-on, in development and coding.
This is a hands-on role and you’ll be able to hit the ground running, delivering from day one.
You’ll need excellent organisation skills, outstanding attention to detail, and be able to work under pressure and to tight deadlines.
- Experienced with full-stack development skills
- Experienced in software engineering

- Experienced with Data & database creation
- Experienced with building e-commerce style mobile and web solutions from scratch.
- Experienced with WordPress and PHP.
