Job Description

Backend Developer – Node.js / AWS - £70,000 - £80,000

The Role

I’ve just started working with a software business in London who are building a platform to change the way that celebrities interact with their audience! Due to the influx of new clients, they are splitting their development team (currently 12 strong but looking to treble in size this year) into three squads, so that each can focus on a particular area of their product offering.

You will work across three core elements of their platform – specifically on the backend of the products which are built out using Node.js. They are also looking to migrate a large proportion of their codebase from PHP to Node, so it would be amazing if you had the experience working on a similar project. Their platform is entirely hosted on AWS so you need to have experience with this or with GCP – either is fine. This would be an ideal position for a Senior Developer who is looking to grow into a Lead role over the next 12-18 months.


Having been in business for five years now, the company are true leaders within their market – having spotted a fault in the way that celebrities & public figures interact with their audiences. To change that, they built out a platform & approached some of the most well-known celebrities across the world who are now using their platform.

They have offices across the UK & US, so you will be based in their London HQ. They are currently operating remotely but are looking to get back into the office once restrictions are lifted to enable them to build an engineering culture to support the new developers that they are looking to bring onboard throughout 2021. They currently have a headcount of 50 but are looking to double this before the end of the year!


You must have experience in these skills to be considered for the role:


  • Node.js
  • AWS / GCP
  • GraphQL


  • TypeScript
  • PHP
  • Experience working on Serverless platforms
  • STEM degree or equivalent


As well of a salary of up to £80,000, this company offers a fantastic benefits package comprising of unlimited holidays, health insurance, dental care & discretionary bonus.

Please send a copy of your most up to date CV to to be considered.
