A bit about us

We believe that everyone should be able to invest in trailblazing startups, and that individual investors should get the same deal as the professionals.

This core idea led us to create our investor-led equity crowdfunding platform, which made it possible for non-experts to invest alongside, and on the same terms as, experienced angel investors. It has remained at the heart of our business as we've expanded into new arenas and products, including Fund Twenty8 – the world's first passive EIS fund.

But we're only just getting started. Everything we do is in pursuit of achieving our vision of a fair, sustainable and transparent investment industry, and we want you to help us on our journey.

Open roles

Full stack developer

Location: Cambridge, UK

Start: ASAP

Type: Full time, permanent

Salary: £40,000-£50,000

What we are looking for

We're looking for full stack developers who can find efficient, practical solutions to difficult problems. Are you just as comfortable designing an API to extract useful information from a database as you are building the beautiful, intuitive interface our users need to make sense of it all? Are you willing to roll up your sleeves, to try a different approach to an issue, to continually build upon your previous knowledge and experience?

We have a small-team philosophy and set the bar high: fewer, high-quality developers can achieve far better results than a larger team of average developers. You'll be glad to know talented developers will be reviewing your code and vice versa and we try to foster a culture of learning and teaching across the team.

Requirements

  • Strong server-side Javascript skills (we use ES6 on Node.js)
  • Plenty of experience with at least one of: MongoDB, PostgreSQL and MySQL/MariaDB
  • Experience building REST APIs
  • Proficiency with flexbox and grid
  • Git (we use GitHub heavily)
  • An analytical, problem-solving mind
  • Ability to communicate well with the wider team

Bonus points

  • Experience reproducing pixel perfect layouts
  • Experience working with either MLab or Atlas hosted instances of MongoDB
  • Command of the MongoDB aggregation pipeline
