Rotaready: Partnerships | Lead Software Engineer | Product Design Lead (UI UX)

Rotaready is a ​startup​ ​on​ ​a​ ​mission​ ​to​ ​revolutionise​ ​staff​ ​scheduling. Rotaready has combined smart algorithms with a beautiful user experience to create the world’s most  intuitive staff rota software. Some of the most innovative retail and hospitality businesses in the UK trust Rotaready to build their rota automatically and help manage their staff.

Rotaready is currently hiring for the following positions:

 

Partnerships: 

Develop new partners and supercharge our growth. At Rotaready, we are firm believers in ‘best of breed’. Our customers love our open platform  and the freedom it gives them to integrate Rotaready with complementary tools and services.  Our ‘one-click’ integrations with HR, payroll, EPOS, footfall, reservations/bookings and training  providers (to name a few categories) have been critical to our success in winning new customers – we believe this will be key to unlocking future growth, too. We’re doubling down on our growth in the UK market and are looking for a bold, smart and versatile person to establish partnerships with more UK software platforms. Reporting to the COO, you’ll be responsible for building new partnerships with software platforms that focus on the UK market. This will be the foundation of our revenue growth in  the UK for years to come. You will develop and execute against a business development plan, build a strong network  within the partner, and work with a wide variety of stakeholders to get commitment to  establishing a partnership. You’ll work with our Customer Success team to identify and target new partners, work with our  engineers to understand, implement and demonstrate our technical solution, and once you’ve  signed the partner you will develop a go-to-market plan and help identify new leads to target.  As the main advocate for our UK partners, you’ll provide invaluable feedback to the business to  ensure that we can develop long-lasting and successful partnerships.

Lead Software Engineer: We’re looking for an exceptional Lead Software Development Engineer to help Rotaready build  and scale the world’s best staff scheduling platform. Our API handles millions of requests per week and our microservices process an equal  number of events in real-time. The company is growing fast and there is an increasing demand  for creative, agile and high quality work from our engineering team. We believe in using the best technology for the task and we’re heavy users of React, Node.js  and Amazon Web Services. We use AWS Lambda functions for many of our microservices, AWS  Kinesis for our real-time event streams, React Native for our mobile apps and Redis for our  in-memory data stores. Our planning and delivery processes are agile and based on Scrum.    Right now we’re rebuilding our front-end for i18n using React and Redux, opening up our  platform with developer APIs, we’re scaling our back-end infrastructure to handle much greater  capacity and we’re investing in improved resilience and security. We also love open source and maintain several projects, including moment-range (the most  popular date range plugin for Moment.js).

Product Design Lead (UI UX): We’re an inherently complex product built for non-tech savvy users, so there’s a real challenge in keeping that complexity under the hood. So far, without any dedicated UI/UX resource, we’ve built a great product that our customers love. But as we approach 10,000 users, we believe we can do much better. As a product, Rotaready caters for many different types of user at varying levels of seniority: HR professionals, area managers, retail assistants, operations directors, you name it! This, combined with our broad set of features, makes for a really interesting and exciting UX  challenge. We’re looking for a senior UI/UX designer who can take full responsibility for the way Rotaready  looks and feels. We believe a beautiful user experience is crucial to the success of our product, so we’ll give you the freedom, responsibility and all the help you need to make that happen. And as we grow we’d love for you to help hire and build a team.

How to apply: email jobs@rotaready.com and be sure to include your CV, a cover letter (in the body of the email is fine).

Localistico: Frontend Developer

Localistico is looking for a Frontend developer. We’re a London-based startup with a top team that have worked in companies like Google, Yelp or Tuenti. We have offices in both central London and Madrid, although our team works remotely most of the time (with quarterly in-person meetups).

We are building a platform to help marketing teams bridge online and offline. We believe that the way people find and interact with real-world locations is different from just websites. We think advances in geotargeting and analytics in platforms like Google and Facebook, plus the digitalization of brick & mortar locations will increasingly create new ways to reach customers and enhance business value – but will at the same time bring complexity. We are here to simplify that complexity.

We’re revenue-generating and our current clients include brands like Starbucks, Morrisons and Foxtons. We have been part of Wayra and SeedRocket accelerators, were awarded a KPMG Shift100 Marketing Tech and are a Google Premier Partner.

Our platform:
Localistico’s backend is based on a mix of Ruby on Rails and Python components, the latter particularly for the data processing and integration pieces. Data storage is mostly PostgreSQL, Redis/resque and ElasticSearch. Our frontend is a web app in Ember.js. Our whole deployment is cloud based with Codeship+Heroku. We use github as code repository and issues platform (with a bit of help from CodeTree)

Your role: 
Your focus will be on the Localistico frontend applications, mostly written as Ember.js single-page webapps. Your tasks will include various integrations with our platform APIs, working out useful reports and visualizations (including lots of maps) and making sure the interactions and the UX delight our users.

We would like you to have: 
Great hands-on experience with html5/css and scss/sass. As well as handlebar templates, leaflet, chartist or equivalent JS libraries.
Experience integrating frontend with complex REST APIs and data models.
Working knowledge of Ember and/or other opinionated Javascript frameworks.
Well-rounded experience in software development and experience in frontend development as part of a team, as well as updating/maintaining other team members’ code. We particularly value experience in maps and geo, reporting, visualizations and other complex data management.

Having worked in sort-of-large Javascript applications before and/or in a startup environment would be good for extra brownie points, but not mandatory.

We’re looking for the type of person that is always learning and feeling ready to take new challenges (despite it being scary sometimes!). We’d love to hear if you have some hobby or activity you’re passionate about, apart from your work (everybody in the team has at least one!). We would particularly like if you feel comfortable collaborating with others and discussing solutions and alternatives to problems.

What we offer: 
Flexible location and hours: we are a distributed team and we plan by goals, not times – work from wherever you are happiest and feel most productive. For when you need an office, you’ll have them in London and Madrid.
Creative work: don’t just execute to guidelines but be a defining part of a great team tackling an interesting problem and help us drive the solution and the company culture.

Competitive salary and equity participation (employee stock options scheme), based on location and experience. Ask us for details if you’d like to discuss, we’re very open about this. We want everybody that is part of the project to share the uptake as we share the work.

Localistico: Rails Backend Developer

Localistico is looking for a Rails Backend Developer.

You will work alongside the Rails team, with an initial focus on all the webapp-facing APIs.
You will work with our core team devs engineering the best way to select, query and present data across the application – including a lot of geo/mapping representation and reports/alerting features.
From there you can start working in any of our other platform features, from data processing to platform integration.
