iContract is an exciting startup which will revolutionise how contractors find and manage contracts, connect with recruiters and how recruiters find quality candidates. iContract creates a contractor community where you can search for jobs, build up your network among contractors, recruiters and employers, manage your contracts, share knowledge and access professional services under one roof.

Our platform will be ready to launch in Feb. 2017, starting in the Financial Services, Legal and Technology sectors. The launch will be followed by a mobile app for instant connections, which is already in development, a recommendation programme to assess the quality of the contractors and a social universe for contractors where knowledge, expertise and anecdotes can be shared. The list goes on...

We are a well-funded startup with a small founding team. You will be joining that founding team where your voice and ideas will be heard and make an impact from day one. We are flexible, creative and agile. We built our platform based around our users' and our team's feedback, and yours will play a big part! We value our people as our top asset and we believe in a structure where our top talent will all have ownership in the business.

We are looking for a hands-on developer who is passionate about start-ups, creating a product and who has the ambition and potential to progress to a CTO role.

You will report directly to the CEO and other board members. You will be joining and managing a team of four developers - two in the UK and two in Brazil.
