Job Description

Are you...

  • Interested in helping to build a global business?
  • Excited by the prospect of disrupting a fragmented market that’s embedded in legacy technology?
  • Looking to take a hands-on approach to Product Development and be a key decision-maker on the final Minimum Viable Product (MVP)?
  • Interested in a job where you have the chance to make a real difference in people’s lives?

If so, then we have some good news!

We’re looking for a talented Full Stack Developer to help us create an awesome Minimum Viable Product (MVP) and raise initial capital for our start-up, Hope.

Who Are We?

Hope is a business in the consumer lending market, aiming to help people secure loans and consolidate their debt at a fairer, more affordable price-point than many other lenders in the current market.

By developing an in-house machine learning algorithm, we’re aiming to disrupt the current lending industry model by automating the lending process and making it easier to take out and repay their loans. Using this model, we hope to create a form of lending that rewards debtors for good performance, rather than penalises them.

What Are We Looking For?

We’re looking for a Full-Stack Developer who is skilled at designing customer-centric experiences and loves what they do. If you have a talent for putting yourself in the customer’s shoes and mapping out clear, effective user experience, we think you could be a great fit. 

As the Head of Product Development within the team, you’ll be working closely with the founder to create a product that is responsive, easy to use, and puts UX at the top of the priority list.

Through early stage development, the role will also allow for exciting growth opportunities within the business, with the potential to grow into a CTO role.

What Will You Be Doing?

Our aim is to develop in-house, machine-based learning algorithms to allow us to provide personalised credit rates to each user. 

This will include:

  • Developing an MVP to raise capital from the existing founders network 
  • Working as a Full Stack engineer 
  • Building the core functionalities of the platform
  • Support in building a roadmap for rolling out the platform to a wider user-base
  • Recruitment, team management, and developing team structure  

What Skills/Experience Should You Have?

  • 5 years+ of professional experience as a developer, with a combination of back-end, front end, and full stack development 
  • Experience with working with/for top tier start-ups
  • Strong skills in React/React Native 
  • Broad knowledge of Javascript 
  • Experience with software engineering best practices 
  • Experience with machine learning & AI is a bonus 

How Will You Be Compensated?

The position will be paid in equity until we reach the MVP stage, with the potential for substantial earnings growth as the platform itself grows.

You Will Be a Great Fit If You Are...

  • Driven by impact and creating a high-quality product with the potential to make a real difference in people’s lives
  • Tenacious, resourceful, & someone who takes great pride in their work
  • Growth-oriented and have a desire to push your abilities 
  • Passionate about software development 
  • Able to cope with high-pressure environments, tight deadlines, and a fast-paced work environment
  • Most importantly: You speak your mind, are open & honest, and display integrity regardless of the situation
