The market, problem & vision


We live in the age of SPAM. The two main sources of it are recruiting and sales. Why can’t the good companies and good employees just find each other? Why can’t businesses just sell to happy clients?


It boils down to competition - companies fight for the best talent and for the best clients. Some throw piles of money at external agencies, some try to abuse the contacts of their staff. The SPAM is just a side-effect of a process designed to minimize the cost - but ending up inefficient and expensive in secondary costs.


Every industry veteran will tell you one thing - the best deals and the best hires are not made by ‘solutions’ - they are made by people. People with vested interest in the success of the business they work with. Today, these people are locked in a contract, bring in a ton of business and get a small cut. Or they are spammed for favors, help occasionally and get nothing for it.


And they hate it. In 2019 in the UK alone there were 8,450 new recruiting agencies started by top recruiters leaving their jobs and setting up solo or in small groups. Sales staff deals with this by doubling the churn rate compared to any other role, always hunting for a fairer commission.

On top of that, there are people who have much better access to talent than recruiters and better access to clients than sales staff - but they are left untapped. Why wouldn’t a tech company collaborate on recruiting directly with a talent pool built around an open source project? Why wouldn’t a SaaS business distribute through folks who offer training workshops in the relevant vertical?

At its core, this is a coordination problem. As a company: How do I find and on-board all these external partners? How do they learn about what I need and how do I weed through and prioritize what they send me back? How do I identify and fairly pay the ones who deliver value?

Primeflow is our answer to these questions, enabling companies to work with external partners who make recruiting and sales happen.

The product


Primeflow enables companies to set up direct acquisition channels through scalable partnerships with external contributors. Our pilot has a mix of growth companies who look to recruit a lot, b2b businesses who want to sell through ecosystem partners and VCs who want to coordinate their startup scouts.


At the heart of Primeflow is it’s reputation engine powered by a layered dataset of:

  • demand & supply data

  • relationship linkage

  • transaction data


While managing the coordination between companies and their partners, we build a clear picture of what is being requested & delivered, between which parties and at what price. 


This reputation engine powers an efficient user experience, helps the users establish new business based on their previous track record and ensures that people get rewarded based on their merit. And it’s also what will make Primeflow defendable and valuable in the long run.

You

You are a proactive maker, hungry to build something big.


You are a versatile engineer, up to speed with modern web technologies, engineering practices & devops. You will appreciate our automatic push pipeline, have a thing to say about our system architecture and pull your weight in our stack of Angular/NodeJS/GCP.


You also want to be immersed in the product process, talk to customers, brainstorm solutions and have a voice in the direction of our product and our company.


But most importantly, you want to make stuff happen, grow personally and be rewarded fairly.

  • Impala (Western Europe)
    1 week ago

    Hello!

    Thanks for taking a look at the job description for a Chief Architect at Impala. We felt a little bit impersonal just throwing you right in there with words like “revolutionizing” and “disrupting”.

    As such, we want you to know that the person that wrote this job description apologises in advance for any clichés, startup tropes or sudden-insecurity-driven-panic-attacks that you might find in the description below.

    What is Impala now?

    Impala makes building travel software incredibly easy. We provide hotels with a powerful data management platform that makes connecting to software, hardware and room distributors extremely easy. Think Twilio for Travel.

    We launched in January 2019 and since then have grown at - quite frankly - a ridiculous pace. Our technology is already installed in hundreds of hotels worldwide, on six continents and categorises more than 1 billion data points.

    We are a growing team of exceptional people split across engineering, product and commercial that have built a fantastic, remote-but-far-from-distant community.

    Where is Impala going?

    We’re supported by some of the best investors in the business, the early stage backers behind Deliveroo, PillPack, SecretEscapes, Zoopla, Trivago and more. They’re on board because of our vision - revolutionizing a $1.6 trillion dollar market that’s been out-of-date for 20 years.

    Within the next two years, 25% of hotel bookings worldwide will flow through Impala technology and the product that we’re building will empower the entire ecosystem of travel technology (we already have over a thousand companies signed up).

    Anyone travelling anywhere will interact with products powered by Impala and to achieve this we’re growing the team to 50 people within the next year. So now is the most exciting time to be joining Impala as we go through a large push to scale up!

    A brief overview of what you’ll be up to in this role:

    As chief architect, you will act as the technical authority in a top-tier engineering team, ensuring that our technology can meet both immediate and future needs. You will report to (and work alongside) our VP of Engineering. 

    Technology sits at the heart of our business, which makes this a pivotal role with key responsibilities: 

    • You will lead on technology strategy & prioritization, managing short term technical risks and long term investment in our stack
    • You will be accountable for technical quality at Impala, including the reliability, security, and extensibility of our services and data 
    • You will ensure that monitoring, metrics and SRE practices are in place across all teams and services, to measure and meet high service SLA’s / expectations 
    • You will be the direct leader of an enablement group, which provides specialist  technical/DevOps/SecOps support to our development teams
    • You will provide technical direction and mentorship across teams to support the development of individuals 

    You should join us if: 

    • You have 10+ years of relevant and diverse product and engineering experience, with a period of executive-level responsibility at an organization with a strong engineering culture
    • You are an expert in the architectural design, development, and operation of large scale, high availability services 
    • You have demonstrated experience with modern web services, distributed service-oriented architectures and services that handle large quantities of data, across multiple different stacks. 
    • You aren’t afraid to get hands-on when necessary to demonstrate an approach / principle 
    • You are comfortable leading and mentoring teams and individuals

    Where in the world will you be working?

    This is a remote position. This means you can work from anywhere +/- 2 Hours of London, timezone wise (and less than a 3 hour flight).We are a remote-first company, our whole engineering team is fully distributed! This was a very deliberate choice to prioritise work-life balance and ensure we’re able to accommodate the best people in Europe. We have loads of remote initiatives to ensure you’re fully setup!:

    • We will give you a brand new high-spec laptop when you start, giving you the choice between a Thinkpad or Mac.

    Please note, we only accept candidates in Western Europe because of timezone and travel time differences. We make no exceptions (we don’t have time to!).

  • We are looking for an experienced Engineering Manager to lead the team dedicated to driving Gatsby’s open source project. Join us in our mission to make website development fun by making it simple.

    About us

    Gatsby is a remote-first, community-focused team working to build a high-performance, fun to use, accessible, and astonishingly flexible presentation layer for any data source. Our core values include transparency (our work is public most of the time); creating a safe, high-trust team; building incredible developer experiences; maintaining a healthy working environment; and helping deliver web experiences that feel amazing to use on every device and connection type. 

    Details of the role

    Type of Work: Full-time employee Location: Remote

    Why we need you

    Gatsby is the future of the web, and the web is an incredibly diverse ecosystem. This means we need leaders who can intuitively appreciate the value that the commercial services we build offer customers. The open source team is expanding rapidly and we need someone with a deep understanding of the very cool technology, but an equally profound sense of empathy required to grow both individual contributors and future leaders in this critical part of our company.

    Why this is interesting

    Gatsby is a wildly popular open-source framework that is changing the architecture of the web. The open-source team is responsible for driving the roadmap for the large and complex codebase that is Gatsby.js. Between their own contributions and the community, they merge nearly 500 pull requests in a typical month. You’ll help lead the team in not only tackling key technological challenges, but also bolstering and focusing community contributions.

    Your responsibilities

    You will be responsible for people, projects, and processes. You will partner with your team and peers to:

    • Foster an inclusive environment through empathy, not just inside engineering, but across all the teams in Gatsby, and beyond to the open source community.
    • Wrangle many timezones and introduce remote work best practices, as you will lead a geographically diverse team.
    • Exercise good judgement in interacting with the enthusiastic community, as an exemplar for your team in this area.
    • Partner with Product and Design to find the best blend of quality, agility, and work/life sanity.
    • Make sure your team is fully equipped for their job, including:

      • Context - make sure they know what is happening outside engineering
      • Vision - make sure they know what it coming next, even if we’re not there yet
      • Skills - ensure that each team member grows and feels confident in delivery
      • Tools - choose and evolve the dev environment (with the team’s input)
      • Processes - hand-in-hand with tools, make sure that we’re continuously evolving our planning and dev approach to have just enough structure to keep us on track
      • Empower your team members by offering them clear ownership of technical challenges in a world where you and other leaders are still wearing many hats and finding the ones with the best fit.
      • Collaborate with other engineering managers to evolve the management practices at Gatsby. We’re all learning more every day!
    This might be you if you….
    • Have successfully managed people, including recruiting and hiring, coaching, mentoring, evaluating, and promoting.
    • Have experience working with (and ideally contributing to, or managing) open source communities and products.
    • Have strong communication skills, verbal and written.
    • Genuinely enjoy helping people, both inside the company and out.
    • Have a consistent track record of delivering high-quality software in regular, iterative releases through coordinating a remote team.
    • Are able to coordinate and work with teams and stakeholders across the organization, and even beyond the company, including effective project management skills in an environment where you may not control many of the variables.
    • Have previous experience with React, Node.js, and GraphQL. Gatsby is built on React, Node, and GraphQL, so you should be experienced with usage and the syntax.
    • Have strong empathy and a willingness to define the nuances of team roles (including your own!) as you go.
    The best parts of this job
    • The people and culture of a team genuinely invested in building something great.
    • You’ll be helping curate one of the most popular, fastest growing open source frameworks in the world.
    • You’ll be leading a group of supportive, talented, and friendly people towards delivering a great framework and developer experience.
    • You’ll have the opportunity (even expectation) to constantly learn and innovate, in both tech approaches and process definition.
    • Your role will be key to making Gatsby the next way to build on the web—and a technology that enables the next billion internet users.
    • You will get to look back on this time as the “early, exciting days” of Gatsby. You’ll get to watch members of your team become future leaders and luminaries in a space that isn’t fully defined or formed yet.
    The worst parts of this job (maybe)
    • The community and our team aren’t always operating as equals, and don’t always have perfectly aligned motivations. Your job includes the unenviable task of helping us figure out the right focus in a variety of complex situations, and with a wide range of (understandable, but sometimes mutually exclusive) community expectations.
    • We’re all still figuring a lot of stuff out. Things can feel unstructured or messy. Part of your job is to smooth out what we collectively don’t like. And that can be hard.
    • The company is growing fast, which means lots of people wearing lots of hats, and sometimes exchanging them for new ones. Doing this while protecting a team (or individual’s) sense of ownership and security is hard. And it’s part of this job. Sorry.
    • Product and strategic direction can change. We’re building a whole new area of growth in an absolutely huge potential market. Absorbing (and/or pushing back as you see fit) that change so your team doesn’t feel unnecessary churn is also hard. And also part of this job. Still sorry.
    Benefits
    • Unlimited vacation policy, with a minimum of 15 days paid vacation time
    • Amazing health, dental, and vision insurance for you and your family (US only)
    • Skip the commute with remote work
    • 3 months of paid parental leave covering both adoption and foster placement
    • Fly to cool locations 3x/year for company-wide meetups
    • Stock options in a fast-growing startup
    • Gatsby Sabbatical: 4 weeks of paid vacation after 4 years tenure
    Equal Opportunity Statement

    Gatsby is an equal opportunity employer. We eagerly seek applicants of diverse backgrounds and hire without regard to race, color, gender identity, religion, national origin, ancestry, citizenship, physical abilities (or disability), age, sexual orientation, veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law. Cultivating inclusivity and diversity is a top priority.

    Headhunters and recruitment agencies may not submit resumes/CVs through this website or directly to managers. Gatsby does not accept unsolicited headhunter and agency resumes, and will not pay fees to any third-party agency or company that does not have a signed agreement with Gatsby.
