About the role

👋 Who we are

At Shopscribe we are disrupting hospitality hiring by reducing the time it takes to hire staff from months to < 3 days.

Hiring staff is the biggest challenge for many of the 2M+ hospitality businesses in Europe. Covid and Brexit ceased the usual oversupply of candidates, making traditional job boards unable to meet employers' needs, and agencies more expensive than ever. As a consequence, employers spend huge amounts of time sourcing candidates manually and filtering through irrelevant CVs. Up to 80% of candidates who get invited to an interview, don't even show up.

At Shopscribe we eliminate all this work for employers, by finding actively-looking candidates, vetting them and automatically matching them to the best employers using AI. We schedule interviews and extend offers to candidates faster than humans can, giving employers time back to run their businesses.

To date, we’ve raised ~$1.5M from investors including Y Combinator, Entrepreneur First, world-class Venture Capital funds and industry leaders.

💻 The stack

We’re in love with Javascript. On the frontend, we're using React ⚛️ and looking at React Native📱for a mobile application in the medium term. On the backend, we run on Node.js🌐

🤟 What you'll be doing

  • Build a product (almost) from scratch, which can reliably support our fast-growing customer base.
  • Taking the lead on our engineering efforts alongside our CTO, both on the frontend and the backend. This means taking ownership of implementing new features and resolving bugs throughout our stack.
  • Work with the product team to evaluate customer feedback and take action on it. This includes synthesizing new ideas that improve our key metrics, coming up with specs for new features and planning out their implementation.

🧑‍💻 You should apply if:

  • You have strong experience with Node.js on the backend and have previously shipped high-quality production code (ideally 3+ years experience)
  • You have some experience with React in a production environment
  • You have experience with complex API integration. Bonus points if you interfaced with WhatsApp API or other messaging services.
  • You like to take ownership of your projects and have a strong user-centric mindset. You’re structured but also fast on your feet when changes happen. You're eager to receive and give constant feedback to your co-workers. You're passionate about what we do!

🔥 What are we offering?

  • A £50k-£70k salary + stock options. By receiving stock options, you are a shareholder so run this as if it’s your own business - feel empowered to be an entrepreneur alongside your team!
  • Pick your own work laptop
  • Flexibility of working from home some days of the week (hybrid)
  • Unlimited holiday and bi-monthly team activities (go-karting, axe throwing, you name it)
  • A fun office in the heart of Soho; stocked with whatever snacks and drinks you want
  • Pension: 3% employer pension contributions via Nest Pensions
  • The opportunity of being part of an exciting story and growing fast with it; you won’t be tasked on just a tiny feature – you’ll have ownership over large parts of our business and potentially will head our Engineering team as we grow. Join the next unicorn! 🦄🚀
