Lead Product Engineer wanted for one of the UK’s fastest-growing scale-ups, tackling an area that few have tackled in a digital setting successfully.

About the role

Some times you just want a holiday. You don’t know where and you haven’t got any ideas, you just know you need to be by a pool, lying down in the sun.

This company doesn’t just book your travels and accommodation when you know where you want to go, they act like you’re actually visiting a travel consultant, putting a list of options in front of you after a few parameters; how hot do you want it to be, how far away, how expensive etc. It clearly works well, because the company in question has been growing over 100% year-on-year, and started churning profit after their first 12 months. Yes, a start-up that’s actually *already* successful, not just lots of VC money.

If you’re looking for a role that’s more than just your average web-tinkering, you can help be building out these features – an opportunity to work on something no other company is doing

What skills do you need?

They’re looking for a lead level software engineer who has worked on web products, ideally using modern JavaScript frameworks and tooling. They’re building out a React, Redux and Node stack, using GraphQL, feeding into GCP, and are also looking for an understanding of testing methodology.

Realistically, they’re looking for is “T-Shaped” engineers who are pragmatic, able to pick up and learn new technologies and learn – but most importantly, understand the fundamentals of engineering first and foremost over flashy technologies. For them, problem solving is the most important thing.

It’s a lead level role, paying up to £110,000 and a good place to lead projects, mentor juniors, stay being hands-on, and be a key part of conversations around Product, Design and Architecture as well. You could be working on anything across Core, Experimentation or an International Expansion team.
