Overview

This is an opportunity to lead the technology division at Tab Media, a fast-growing media startup which has raised £7 million in funding and publishes two influential editorial brands: The Tab and babe.net.

This role is perfect for someone who loves product development and wants to be one of the most senior figures in a startup, with an opportunity to grow their team and graduate to CTO after our next fundraise.

Reporting into the CEO, you will be the most senior person in the tech department, setting roadmaps, managing the team and communicating with key stakeholders, as well as writing code.

We are looking for someone who understands that “what you build” is just as important as “how you build it”. As Technical Lead, you will lead the product development of babe.net’s members’ universe, including a high traffic mobile app (including instant messaging function). You will oversee major redesigns of The Tab and babe.net, and set the roadmap for future products.

In this role, you will:

  • Lead the tech team, managing a Senior WordPress Developer and a Designer/Front End Developer.
  • Heavily influence company strategy and define the product roadmap
  • Communicate with key stakeholders, including non-technical staff, translating ideas into real products with huge user bases.
  • Work on projects across the stack, from Front-end using HTML, CSS and vanilla JavaScript, to React and Node applications or back-end Node microservices.
  • Create and manage technical projects, enforcing code standards and best practices

What we’re looking for:

  • Experience with front-end development using HTML, CSS and vanilla Javascript
  • Experience with modern Javascript (ES6+)
  • Experience building web applications with React and Node
  • Experience with setting up and maintaining infrastructure on AWS
  • A passion for building products that experience huge volumes of daily traffic
  • The desire to lead a team and become a CTO
