Junior Full-Stack Developer

I'm looking for an intelligent developer with a passion for tech

CTO

GetAgent is the Estate Agent Comparison Site

There are over 17,000 estate agents in the UK and they all say they’re the best.

We use property sales data to measure the agents’ performance. So we can tell homeowners exactly which ones would do the best job selling their home.

By using GetAgent, homeowners get more for their home and sell quicker.

See where we've been and where we're going.

About our tech

The homeowner-facing part of the site may appear quite straightforward, but there’s lots of complexity hidden away!

  • We have a custom CRM which enables all our interactions with homeowners and estate agents (built with React and uses Plivo/Twilio for telephony). We are planning to 5x in size next year, so you could be working on adding to the CRM to enable people to work more efficiently. We have an exciting (and not straightforward!) outbound telephony plan that should improve efficiency of the Customer Service team substantially - you could lead this project.

  • We have a comprehensive branch dashboard for our estate agents which includes competitor analysis and lead management (including some fun generating PDFs!). You may work on adding further features that our estate agent customers request.

  • We’ve built a range of tools to help homeowners on their selling journey - including valuing their property, estimating how long the sale will take and monitoring the performance of their listing. There is a lot more work to be done in this area, such as improving the way we cross-sell ancillaries and giving homesellers more visibility on how their sale is progressing. SO MUCH PROPERTY DATA. We ingest listing data from all the main UK portals every day and cross-reference it with the Land Registry. We leverage our relationship with homeowners and estate agents to enhance our property data even further. You might mine this data to provide housing market insight, or develop tools to help homeowners sell better.

  • We use this property data to produce some unique research - take a look at our labs section. We've also used machine learning to predict when someone is going to sell. You could build upon this effort and link it up with a marketing strategy.

  • Oh, and we’ve written and open-sourced our own SASS framework.

How You Would Contribute

As a member of the Tech Team, you’ll work alongside the CTO and Lead Developer. The majority of your day will be working on improving and adding new features to our existing products. As we venture into new products you’ll have the opportunity to dive in however you see fit and lead the process from idea generation and goal setting all the way to measuring the impact of your work.

However the bulk of your day would be spent developing entirely new parts of the platform. You would be involved in the whole process from idea generation and goal setting all the way to measuring the impact of your work. As a result this role would suit someone entrepreneurial who enjoys taking ownership of a project (rather than just does as they're told).

What We're Looking For

Essential:

  • Good professional Javascript coding experience
  • Front-end technical skills (CSS, SASS/SCSS) and great attention for detail.
  • Some back-end experience (ideally Node JS, but PHP/Ruby/Python ok too)
  • Working Knowledge of SQL databases
  • Fluent English

Nice to have but not essential:

  • Experience working in a Start-Up
  • Worked on a consumer-facing product
  • Interest in the property market
  • Node JS experience
  • Worked with some of our Stack - Koa, Bookshelf, Knex, React, Next JS
  • Experience working with APIs (bonus points for Twilio, Plivo and/or Stripe)

We'd expect that you're naturally inquisitive and keen to learn new things. You'd be mentored by the CTO and a Lead Developer and we'll ensure you have the opportunity to learn new technologies and skills.

Benefits

In 2020 we grew 2x - despite the impact of coronavirus - and we plan to do the same in 2021! We know working from home and in isolation can be a lonely place, so have evolved and adapted to the current situation by helping all of our staff to find fresh and dynamic ways to reach our goals, stay focused and to continue to self develop.

In addition to our standard benefits:

  • Very competitive salary based on experience.
  • Opportunity to be a core member of a small but growing tech team in a scale-up company.
  • Grow responsibility quickly and fast-track your career towards a Mid-Senior role
  • Have a real impact on the technical direction of the business

The Process

  • Quick intial chat over the phone.
  • A coding exersise to test your skill.
  • Video meeting with the CTO to get to know you and have a more in-depth technical conversation.
  • Meet another senior member of the company to ensure a good cultural fit.
  • An informal chat with a few members of the team to get to know you better.
  • We promise to keep you informed on the status of your application and to move as quickly as possible.

COVID

The safety and wellbeing of our staff are of the utmost importance. All of our staff are working remotely from home until further notice and we have provided the necessary equipment to all our colleagues so they can WFH comfortably and effectively.

Once it is safe to do so, this role will be based in our Central London office with the potential to WFH 1-2 days a week.
