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 frontend 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. 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 a Vue expert to come in and help us wrangle large new frontend 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 in to what you build: The people that use our site are grieving, the last thing they need is another convoluted signup, short timeouts on forms, or obnoxious popups vying for their attention.
This is a full-time position, we're not looking for contractors at the moment.
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.
