_Join one of the UK’s hottest fintech startups and help us change lives with your code!_

*About us:*
Squirrel is a simple app that changes people's lives for the better - by managing their money for them. Instead of getting paid into a bank account, Squirrel users get paid into Squirrel! The app then saves and budgets for them. Paying money into their bank account just before they need it - for bills, weekly spending, and when they finish saving up for something.

It’s rare for ideas to be good for the world, unique, profitable, and be fun and challenging to work on - but Squirrel is all of these things! We’re about to raise series A and are looking for a Mid Level Full Stack developer to complete that journey with us.

*What we’re looking for:*
A Full Stack Mid level developer to maintain and progress our existing fintech web app.
We’re looking for someone to work with our existing team of 4 (CEO, Operations, Mid Level Developer and CTO) to transform our new ideas into stories and clean code.

We’re all passionate and interested in making a sustainably great business, and ideally you’ll be the same - We’d love to meet someone able to communicate and work across the team on various topics (from tech to UX, to product) to refine requirements, prioritise and deploy.

Ideally you'll be London based, but we're willing to consider remote workers in other parts of the UK (with occasional travel to the London office).

* Proven experience in building web applications in a startup environment

On the backend we have a REST API built with Python and Flask, storing data in Postgres and Redis. Our front end is written in ES6 and uses angular.js. We also have a mobile app that’s built in Cordova and reuses our angular.js code. Finally we use Docker to package and CircleCI to deploy our releases to our cloud hosted linux servers!

*What’s our process?*
We move fast:
* Simply drop us an email with your GitHub profile and CV.
* Attend an interview.
* Pair program with us for half day to see if you enjoy it.
* We make a decision and will let you know.
