Guardian Angel is positively disrupting the death industry with technology. We're a well funded UK startup looking to grow our development team so we can deliver features faster.
We're looking for an experienced backend developer who can dive into an existing Laravel and Vue code base to start delivering features. You should have strong opinions on code and architecture, a drive to improve the messy bits, and an understanding of the tradeoffs between doing things fast and doing them right. Real world project experience like handling merge requests and managing tickets is important. You enjoy working on fast moving projects and deploying multiple times per day.
Guardian Angel was conceived in 2017 following the unexpected death of founder Sam Grice’s mother in a road accident.
Having been personally exposed to the end of life industry, the lack of digital efficiency became evident as he and his family struggled to coordinate the tasks and sudden influx of communications.
“The funeral sector has been slow to modernise and digitise its services but we are talking to funeral directors on a daily basis about the benefits of creating a Guardian Angel support hub for their clients, as we believe technology can really help in the bereavement process.”
This is the stuff you'll be helping us to maintain, refactor, and build new features on. There are other products in the pipeline so there will be plenty of greenfield projects too.
It's all Laravel and Vue combined in different ways. We need someone to help stay on top of the ever growing list of features and develop new ones.
We're looking for a "T-shaped" developer, someone with a broad set of skills but a specific focus on Laravel.
If you're more of a front-ender, then we're also looking for someone for that role too so get in touch.
There's just 4 of us so far, so you'll have lots of say in the direction of the products and the tech. The goal is to eventually build a fully fledged product team so we can deliver on all the ideas we have, and we're looking for someone to grow with us as our second developer.
