Director – London

Job Title: Director
Company Name: MyBeautyCompare
Salary: £40k-60k
Location: London

Job & Person Spec
Full Stack Technical Lead / Software Superstar / Cofounder

MyBeautyCompare is one of London’s hottest early stage startups. We have won awards, had a lot of press (Telegraph, etc..) and have some very big customers from the FTSE 100 onboard. We are the 1st price comparison site for beauty with personalised recommendations, but so much more. We are investor backed and have a Global Head from Google helping drive the company forward. We already have great traction in the market and are poised for growth. We are looking for the right talent to help build the strategic technical roadmap of the company and be part of driving MyBeautyCompare to the next stage.

The Role
We need someone to own the technical vision of the company; a driven self-starter who can research and find the right solutions. Most importantly, you are excited about entrepreneurial opportunities and enjoy working in a small, high performing team. As a tech lead you will own all aspects of technical from whiteboard, implementation, QA through to deployment. This is a fantastic opportunity to join a promising company at an early stage of growth, where your decisions will make a difference and grow into a cofounder position. We offer a competitive salary and equity to the right candidate.

Who you are
You live and breathe technology. It’s what gets you out of bed on a Monday. You love coding, you know why doing it right matters, but you’re pragmatic enough to know when to take shortcuts. You’re already an expert in one or more programming languages (Java, PHP). You are up to speed with the latest software development methodology and best practices. You will have worked on web projects that use the latest in front-end technologies and know the pitfalls that make an unsuccessful website. You are comfortable building and guiding your own technical team, you know when things aren’t working well, and can make changes to rectify the situation quickly.

Of course, while we transition to your vision, there will be legacy platform support. The platform is currently built around Java & PHP so experience in managing application servers and the LAMP stack will be required. A solid understanding of how to build seo friendly websites and experience in at least 1 mainstream cms platform is highly desirable.
