    1 week ago

    Learnerbly is a team of entrepreneurs and innovators on a mission to redefine learning and development in the workplace. We aim to give every person the opportunity to be their best selves at work. We’re just getting started but so far we’ve already helped businesses like ustwo, carwow, GoCardless and IDEO to find the best learning opportunities to accelerate the growth of their people.

    We are looking to hire a passionate full-stack engineer with experience in designing for and operating AWS based systems. Developing in Javascript for an AWS Lambda based architecture, using AWS DynamoDB and AWS hosted ElasticSearch, the ideal candidate should be familiar with these technologies. This knowledge may come as professional experience or personal research but you will be expected to speak knowledgeably about the state of the art with respect to web application development and infrastructure design. We like ‘geeks, and your ‘geek’ credentials are more important to us than your professional or educational experience. Show us your personal projects, tell us what you like and what you don’t like, about interesting things you have read, projects you have been involved with, people you have met and what you have learned.

    The project is new and the team is small so you can also expect to be involved in making significant, material decisions from day 1.

    These are ideal but not required as we know women are less likely to apply for the role unless they are 100% qualified (hbr.org/2014/08/why-women-dont-apply-for-jobs-unless-theyre-100-qualified). We promote a diverse, inclusive and empowering culture at Learnerbly.

    Areas of responsibility

    1) Help us to develop our learning and development platform.

    2) Provide primary design and support for the AWS infrastructure.

    3) Help us to define our product in terms of features and development priorities.

    4) Support the rest of the team with tooling and technical operations support.

    5) Build our company culture with us.


    By far the most important requirement is that you have a strong passion for building great software systems. Candidates with strong professional experience will be preferred (especially experience working in a start-up environment), but what really matters is a passion for building things. We want people who enjoy what they do, and we know how to spot it. If you think this describes you, get in touch.


    You’ll share a fun and dynamic learning environment with proven entrepreneurs and thought leaders. We’re passionate about learning and development and will do everything we can to maximise your personal and career growth. You’ll also receive:

    • A competitive salary

    • Equity will be offered

    • A generous learning and well-being budget

    • The opportunity to learn from senior advisors from Google, Eventbrite and The Times

    • Access to a vast network of 7000+ organisations across the United Kingdom
