I am working with a start-up who have designed an online voice-sharing platform to provide peer support to all. They are now looking for a talented Lead Backend Developer who is passionate about development and wants to take the lead on bringing this vision to life. They have a fantastic group of investors, 2 years of user research and learnings behind them, as well as an amazing team to support you on this mission.
At the moment they have a RESTful API backend based on Rails 5 hosted on Heroku / AWS, storing data in S3 and PostgreSQL, and front-end clients built in React and React Native. You will be managing the backend and they will supplement the frontend requirements with contractors but if you have delved into React/React Native this is a bonus.
They need someone who is passionate about building consumer applications, excited about bringing an awesome product to market, thrives on doing something that hasn’t been done before and shares in their motivation to use tech for human good. You will play an integral role in shaping their technical offerings and building their in-house capability as they scale.
An interest in mental health or previous experience with audio platforms will be viewed advantageously.
