Job title: Full Stack Engineer (solid back-end exp)
Location: London, flexible working
Lightful ranked number 1 for Social Media Management platforms built for non-profits. Well done team! https://lnkd.in/dTKJmkm
At Lightful, we believe that those doing the greatest good deserve the best technology.
We’re passionate about making the best technology accessible to charities and nonprofits. Our products and custom solutions help organisations unleash the power of technology and make the good work they do even greater.
There are just over 50 of us at the moment but we’re growing pretty quickly! We’ve worked with the likes of Help Refugees, London’s Air Ambulance, Comic Relief and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to name a few.
We are building a platform designed to help charities and other good causes make the most of social media. We know that they struggle to find the time or the resources to learn how to use social/digital to raise more support, awareness or funds for their cause.
The platform currently helps hundreds of users from small and medium sized charities (and other non profits) to plan out their social posts, collaborate with their colleagues and learn from what’s working. However, our vision goes much bigger than that. We want to build a product that will revolutionise the way in which charities do digital.
We are looking for a Senior Full Stack Engineer to join our team. You will have a passion for writing clean code, great attention to detail, value simplicity and be highly collaborative, especially with non-developers. Although we are particularly interested in someone with greater backend experience at this time (with web services and Node.js), as a full-stack developer you should feel comfortable investigating issues with a React component or considering how a decision at the level of infrastructure affects initial load time.
We pride ourselves on being vibrant, trusting and a cross-functional scrum team working on a platform to improve charities’ skills at social media management. A high degree of empathy with end-user needs - those of charities, beyond profits and organisations across the third sector - is at the centre of the work we do, so we’re looking for someone who is motivated by making a product which will make a major difference to our users.
Diversity is really important to us, especially as a tech company. We particularly welcome applications from candidates from groups currently underrepresented in tech.
Our Values are integral to the Lightful culture. The Lightful Values are:
You will be a part of our exciting culture that fosters personal growth and development. As we expand, you will be given the opportunity to thrive in a close-knit team environment.
We are reviewing applications on a rolling basis, so it is in your interest to apply as soon as possible.
