Technology

The technical challenges of building our application go from simplifying how the many different experiences can be modelled technically, and interfaces designed to edit them; to building low-code tools to help our creators build out their websites and sell their experiences. Underneath we might be optimising the speed by which our site-builder renders our customer's websites, or tuning how a complicated graph of objects aggregates into a simple product page for a conference where every event is pre booked after checkout.

We're looking for engineers who love to be self-directed, with great communication abilities, love problem solving, as well as exemplary experience in growing applications (bonus if you’ve experience in Ruby-on-Rails).

Here’s some things our team think are important, and hopefully you do to:

  • You want to work on something impactful - we help 100s of entrepreneurs build their experience businesses across 80 countries
  • You are passionate about great engineering cultures
  • Love contributing to every part of a system
  • You enjoy collaborating with different backgrounds and experiences
  • You have high ambition for yourself and the customers who use your software
  • You've worked on high growth applications, and know how to scale systems at the functional, and non-functional level.
  • You like teaching others more and less senior to your skills - we all have something to learn and something to teach
  • You place high value on tests, and observability of our work in production
  • Value detailed planning and design as well as autonomy on implementation
  • Place importance in pairing and code review as a way of collaborating

We're currently an engineering team of seven, so we're still at that stage where you can know all of what's going on, but also that stage where things are starting to speed up. We're currently working remotely, but are headquartered in Bethnal Green, East London near Columbia Road, Hackney Road and Broadway Market, and expect to be back in the office in late June.
