Guardian Angel is tech for good death tech business looking to rattle the bones of the death space by using technology and real-life experience to make sure death is not any tougher than it needs to be. We're a well funded UK startup looking to grow our development team so we can deliver better features faster.
We're looking for an experienced front-end developer who can dive into an existing 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. Having real world project experience on things like handling merge requests and managing tickets is key. You enjoy working on fast moving projects and deploying multiple times per day.
We welcome and encourage applications from candidates who are typically underrepresented in the startup and tech sector. We can also provide reasonable adjustments during the application process if needed, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
Guardian Angel was founded in 2017 after Sam, our founder's Mum died suddenly in a road accident.
Dealing with grief is tough enough without all of the other stuff that comes with it - from planning a funeral, to all of the legal and financial paperwork that comes with it.
Now our mission is to use technology and our personal experience to make planning for and through death more accessible, affordable and efficient.
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 a Vue expert to come in and help us wrangle large new front-end projects and maintain our existing ones.
Can deliver well-thought-out and complex features on the frontend with some subset of the following technologies:
See the benefits of refactoring, writing tests, pair programming.
Put empathy into what you build to create products that really do make a difference at the most difficult time of people's lives.
Team player. You'll be working and collaborating with two other developers and the Product team.
This is a full-time position, we're not looking for contractors at the moment.
Don’t meet all of the role requirements?
Don’t worry! We care about outcomes rather than tick-box criteria, and it’s often the case that the perfect person for the role has a CV that looks a little different. Research (by Harvard University) shows that women and minority groups are particularly likely to second-guess themselves and not apply — so if you’re worried you don’t meet all the criteria, get in touch anyhow and let us do the worrying.
We're a fast growing team, but it's still early days so you'll have lots of say in the direction of the products and the tech. You'll be part of our growing product team helping us to deliver on all the #deathtech ideas we have.
