Founding Full Stack Engineer

2 months ago

What we’re looking for

We’re looking for an ambitious Full Stack Engineer to join the founding team of a VC-backed startup as we rapidly develop and scale our MVP. This is a hybrid/remote role with the option to work from our co-working space at Balderton Capital in Kings Cross.

About Ambr

Ambr is a VC-backed startup on a mission to prevent workplace burnout – a global mental health crisis that costs organisations $155bn a year. We’re building software that automatically identifies burnout risk factors (like excessive meetings, out-of-hours communication, or low usage of annual leave) and then delivers nudges to employees, directing them towards healthier behaviours.

We’re a 3 person co-founding team of ex-Uber leaders, passionate about building a fast paced start-up with a sustainable working culture. We’ve been selected by TechCrunch as a 2022 Startup Battlefield participant (joining alumni like Dropbox, Fitbit and Cloudfare) and by WebSummit 2022 as an Impact Startup.

What you’ll do:

  • You’ll be employee number 1 – working directly with the founders to translate our product vision into impact, as fast as possible.
  • You’ll write lots of code - your most important responsibility will be getting our product to market and iterating on it.
  • You’ll make key architectural decisions that will form the technical foundations of the company.
  • You’ll have significant ownership over the direction of our product – talking to users, figuring out use cases, and making prioritisation decisions for the short and long term product roadmap (you may even end up messing around with a Figma file now and then).
  • You’ll help with supporting customers to answer product questions, triage bugs, and gather feedback.
  • You’ll gain exposure to all other aspects of the business - from fundraising, to sales, to marketing and more.

Who you’ll be:

  • You’re excited by the opportunity to work with a small, co-founding team in the earliest days of a startup.
  • You move FAST. You crave ownership and love to own things end-to-end.
  • You’ll be comfortable making trade-offs to balance speed of execution with quality.
  • You’re comfortable with ambiguity - you won’t get product requirements or designs for everything you’re expected to build. You’ll know when to ask for clarity and when to make educated assumptions.
  • You’re excited about what we are building and are passionate about preventing chronic stress and burnout in the workplace.
