*About us*
Littlescribe has developed a platform that allows children to easily transform hand written work into a digital version and we turn that work into printed books, cards, posters and calendars.

We’ve partnered with over 20 household children’s authors and developed a program that includes inspirational videos, story starters and lesson plans so that children can take the first couple of pages written by the author and then finish the story themselves.

We’ve been running a lean, offshore development team but we’re now looking to step it up and start to build our own onshore team.

If you love the idea of what we are doing and have the skills to boot - we’d love to chat!

*About the role*
Currently we have an offshore development team. You’d be the first member of the onshore development team and will have an exciting opportunity to shape the future of Littlescribe. We’re looking for a full-stack JS engineer that will become the lead and manage a combined development team.

- Evaluate, plan and implement a number of major changes including replacing an outdated Angular front-end, launching a mobile Android app and implementing robust DevOps.
- Draw on your experience to improve engineering practices, the codebase, app architecture and design.
- You can help us explore how we can use machine learning with our unique dataset.
- Help us implement world leading delivery practices.
- Deliver software at scale - building a platform that will be used at schools globally.
- Longer term - build out and manage an engineering team and engineering culture you can be proud of.

We are looking for a full stack engineer who is comfortable with javascript, HTML and CSS, and have shipped web-apps in various stacks before. You’ve worked in engineering teams before, and understand how your code can affect others. You care about solving engineering problems deeply, while also understand how your work can affect the growth of a business. Our current tech stack includes Node.js, Sails.js, MySQL, Bootstrap, Angular, AWS, Firebase, Docker, GCP.
