Mid level full-stack javascript developer at Opteo

London · Full Time

Job Description

About us

We’re a small, fast growing tech startup building an automation tool for Google’s AdWords advertising platform. Our mission is to make AdWords easy and profitable. We're revenue funded, in regular contact with Google UK, and growing ~25% every month. Check us out here: https://opteo.com

There’s five of us working on the product. When you come on board, we’ll have grown our team by 20%!

The product (Opteo) runs on the MEAN stack. We’ve switched out MongoDB for mysql+redis, but we’re still very javascript heavy. Opteo is roughly divided into two parts: A server-side NodeJS service that constantly monitors our users’ AdWords accounts and looks for places to improve them, and an angular webapp to display & implement these improvements for the user.

You will mostly work with me (Axel, main dev), to write new features on all levels of the product. We’ll work together with Guillaume (AdWords expert) to keep things grounded and useful. You will quickly be leading your own projects!


- Every month, we’ll send money to your bank account.
- We'll offer you equity - between 0.5% - 1.5% depending on your experience and which salary configuration you choose.
- Work in an awesome office: http://www.rainmakingloft.com/uk/. Amazing location on the docks, ping pong, free coffee, free beers on Fridays. This is a coworking space, so you’ll have interesting neighbours outside of Opteo, too (a hackathon organizer team and a neural networks startup)
- We have a tiny team, and you’ll be employee #4: This means everything you write will matter A LOT.
- We're currently revenue-funded. This means we work hard to produce results, but our day to day is pretty chill. On Fridays, we often change it up, collaborating on a team member's personal project over a few beers.
- Our codebase is evolving fast, so you won’t get bored. We’re very open to new ideas.
- We have actual paying users (150+ active users per day) — your stuff will be used (and broken) immediately.
