We're a fast-growing, London-based SaaS company. Our software radically improves how businesses across the globe collect data from customers at events. Our client base includes wonderful business customers from across the world - Airbnb, Mercedes-Benz, Vogue, Harrods, IBM and Adidas to name but a few. We are a small, fun team, and we're looking for a talented individual to join us, grow with us and lend their skills to us as we embark on the next stage in our startup journey.

WHAT WE DO

Our customisable app and web-based software helps businesses collect customer data at trade shows, exhibitions, retail spaces and marketing events. Akkroo works on tablets, mobile and the web, online and offline. We strip away old, inefficient and non-accountable paper-based processes, replacing them with reliable, enjoyable, modern data capture software.

If you love working with web technologies - React, JavaScript, HTML, CSS (Saas/LESS) - and also have some experience with a our backend language PHP, this could be the perfect role for you. We're seeking a talented individual to become our first full stack engineer with a front-end bias, and apply themselves to the development of our best-in-class solution crafting a high-quality mobile & web-based product. If you would enjoy working with these technologies in a startup environment, we'd be keen to hear from you.

Our current stack is JavaScript (vanilla & React), HTML, CSS (LESS), PHP, MongoDB, MySQL, Amazon AWS, Linux, & Git.

Main requirements
  • Experience building JavaScript applications, working with ReactJS and related technologies
  • Interest building hybrid mobile apps and progressive web apps (using such technologies Cordova, React Native or working with native iOS/Android code)
  • Demonstrable understanding of how to write high-quality, semantically considered code
  • Some familiarity working with PHP on Linux and ideally with both structured and NoSQL databases
  • A desire to contribute to building an incredible business as part of a small startup team
  • A passion for self-improvement and personal growth

  • Good judgement
  • Make an impact
  • Be curious & innovate
  • Build trust
  • Embrace the journey
  • Every member of our team actively shapes our startup business; so personal learning, contribution and growth is very important to us all.

We encourage collaboration across the company, including participation and decision-making in areas you might not traditionally be familiar with, such as marketing, sales, customer success and business development.

  • Any native app work, including iOS or Android projects
  • Any work you've done with PHP or other backend languages
