Senior Backend Engineer, 70-90k Hybrid working



Software Engineering
London, UK
Posted on Monday, November 20, 2023

At SeedLegals, we're on a mission to make legal work a breeze for startups and small businesses worldwide. Our tech-driven approach has already helped over 50,000 founders across the UK, France, Ireland, Hong Kong and Singapore close funding rounds, hire employees, and grant share options to their teams, to name just a few.

We're seeking talented senior backend developers to join our team. You'll play a pivotal role in mentoring more junior developers, decision making on architecture, and contributing to our code base. Working in a scrum team alongside ~five engineers, a UX designer, and a Product Manager, you'll have autonomy to drive innovation in areas like social investment features, document and workflow management, and legal template generation. Teams are managed from within and report directly to the CTO, so you'll be working alongside with your manager to solve technical problems.

This is a unique opportunity to gain extensive knowledge of the startup world, VC fundraising, investor tax schemes, and more. As you work on complex projects, you'll also gain invaluable domain knowledge that will prepare you for entrepreneurship yourself.

We're an international team of 17 developers from 12 countries, with a hybrid working model that allows for flexibility and collaboration. While each team meets fortnightly at our offices in Holborn to whiteboard, plan, and socialise, you'll also have the freedom to work remotely.

We’d love to hear from you if...

  • You love solving challenging problems
  • You love building high-performance APIs
  • Have experience working with, and enjoy working with JVM languages (Java and Kotlin), and Spring
  • You know how to provide a great PR review
  • You have experience with software engineering best practices like test-driven development, and have a deep appreciation for what good code looks like
  • You own and take pride in contributing to all stages of development

And if you can hit one or two of these as well, even better...

  • You have some personal projects on the go (maybe you write a blog, help with friends’ websites, contribute to open source projects etc.)
  • Through your work, you have started looking more into the performance of web applications
  • You believe in the Agile manifesto

Joining us, you'll also enjoy a number of perks such as:

  • Private healthcare and life insurance
  • Stock options in SeedLegals
  • Private pension
  • Flexible hours
  • 25 days annual leave + your birthday off
  • Classpass
  • Cycle to Work Scheme
  • Budget for training materials, and your home office setup
  • Free lunch in the office once a week
  • Conference and Meetup opportunities

Our Interview Process:

    1) ~40min initial conversation (video call)

    2) A ~1hr technical interview. Here, we'll ask you to work through designing a solution to a real world technical challenge we've faced, as well as some questions about your experience with backend code in production environments.
