We’ve recently been ranked number five in Startups100 and named as one of the Top 50 Startups to work for in 2020.

At Elder, our people aren’t just part of a team, they’re part of something bigger. We are a team on a mission to fundamentally change what it means to grow old.

We think a strong team is built through difference. From Mexico City to Manchester, Stockholm to Stirling, Hong Kong to Hull, Elders come from all over the UK and the world.

It matters that you’re unique. It matters that you’re great at what you do. And, obviously, it matters how much you care about what we do.

About the role
The role of the technology team at Elder is to set Elder apart from the rest with meaningful use of technology - our technical platform is the engine powers the rest of the business. We build web applications that connects families and carers with each other and Elder. We use data, algorithms, and machine learning to find the right carer to look after each of our customers. In 2020, we’ll continue our journey towards becoming UK’s leading live-in care provider and do even more to deliver a best in class service.

As a member of the technology team you’ll work closely with a product manager, UX designer, and developer peers to not only build great software, but to shape solutions that support Elder and the families we serve.

What you’ll be responsible for
Working closely with product managers, UX designers, and the wider team to shape technology powered solutions
Implementing, testing, and releasing new functionality across Elder’s web applications
Collaborating with backend engineers in building new APIs and data contracts to support new functionality
Actively participating in code reviews, technology/library selection discussions, and technical design discussions together with your engineering colleagues

A solid grasp of modern JavaScript (EcmaScript 6+, Flow or Typescript a bonus)
Experience building software applications using JavaScript/ES6
Experience working with React/Redux, or other similar web application framework
An active interest in staying up-to-date with new technology, new frameworks, new languages and other developments
A passion for working collaboratively to solve meaningful real world problems with technology, not just writing code!

We’re a service business and we know that without the best people, we cannot build the best company which is why we treat our team very well. We can offer:

Competitive Salary
Stock Options (We are post-series A & backed by some of the best VC’s in Europe)
25 days holiday + bank holidays
Plenty of socials and team lunches
Amazing office in the heart of the tech scene in Old Street
Macbook + any particular extras you require
AND a genuine opportunity to be a very key part of a high growth business.
