Chief Systems Architect

London / Home Based                                                                                

Six Figure Package with Equity Plan

 

At its inception, our client set out on a mission to build software solutions that will improve the efficiency of global Supply Chains by removing logistics waste. Its marketplace is the largest on-demand warehousing services platform which connects businesses with suppliers that meet their chosen criteria and requirements.  They are now extending to an Enterprise SaaS Platform that will provide day-to-day logistics orchestration solution designed to improve effectiveness of transport and supply chain networks, reduce congestion and environmental footprint.

 

As a visionary Chief Systems Architect, you will be one of the founding members of the development team and stand at the inception of a business that has the potential to revolutionise the US$ 8.4 trillion logistics services market.

 

Should you have:

  • The breadth of SaaS systems’ design and development expertise as well as passion for hands-on engineering of cutting edge and sector disruptive solutions
  • You understand not only the challenges of working in a start-up environment, but are also looking for opportunities to take full ownership of complex tech problems
  • You are an enthusiastic problem solver and motivated person with a solid track record of building and leading strong software engineering teams.

 

It’s essential that you bring:

  • Direct experience of using one or more public cloud platforms (AWS, Azure and/or GCP), Functions as a Service (lambda, serverless) and cloud native application hosting
  • A well-rounded knowledge of front-end frameworks, back-end architectures and DBs (PostgreSQL, CockroachDB, No-SQL, Blob storage, etc.) as well as APIs / exchange protocols
  • Experience with vendor selection and/or making decisions about tools, use of proprietary vs open source software solutions as well as white label integration of 3rd party modules
  • Joining a company is always a two way street: there has to be a fit from both sides. So, before you apply, here’s three key things to understand about this company:
  • They’re built for individuals, not ‘resources’ or ‘staff’. This means that personal ambitions, opportunities to impact and overall wellbeing matter
  • They encourage radical thinking and value breakthrough innovation, which is the only way to build truly disruptive and industry changing solutions
  • You will not be a cog in a machine and there is no well-trodden path ahead, as they’re building a completely new approach to a highly traditional and enormous sector.

 

In return:

You’ll drive technology choices, functional and development priorities and take full ownership for development and final product delivery.

 

In addition to a PAYE compensation and other negotiable perks, they offer an equity options plan which fully recognises your contribution and a leading role in development of their market-leading solution.

 

Your contribution will be measured by results, so they offer remote-friendly and flexible hours to suit your circumstances and work patterns.
