Founding Engineer at Metomic - London, United Kingdom

Salary £60k - £80k • Company Website

Job Description


Do you like solving problems? Building things? Breaking things? Experimenting with things? (because we do)

Come on, the answer’s yes already …

We’d like you onboard!

We’re funded, we’re early, we’re moving super fast, and we’re about to solve a MASSIVE problem. At Metomic, we’re building the “privacy by design” infrastructure of the internet. Technologies plug together like Lego - it’s about time that our preferences, consent and sharing permissions do the same.

It’s a greenfield opportunity. We have:

We love awesome engineering, and awesome engineers:

You’re curious, creative and smart

And modest, too. Here are some of the other things that you have:

…and you have a wide set of interests:

Perhaps in your free time you’ve dabbled with front-end. Or painting. Or robots. Or a markov-chain Trump-tweet generator. In which case can you take it down please? It’s currently running the United States.

Hey you said full-stack … but “dabbled” with front-end?

Yes. We don’t need you to be a front-end person. We’re looking for a great engineer in general, not a specialism - and this is the closest tag we could decide upon. So if you’ve ever felt “But I do lots of things! How do I present myself as capable doer of multitudinous things?” then you’re perfect. “So do I need to build the front-end” Nope!

Unless that’s your burning passion, in which case, hey, we’ll hook you up.

What else? I want more. Open-source? Dev talks? Community?

Ok, we’re going to be hitting the noise channels pretty hard to make a bit of a racket. We’re engineers, and a lot of other engineers are getting on board with this idea of doing shared data “right”.

So for us that means: meetups, blogging, tech talks, open-sourcing, spec-defining and platform designing. There will be lots of pizza and snacks because we’re supposed to like pizza and snacks and Richard’s pretty health conscious so there’ll be some kind of vegetable presence too.

And if you like the sound of having a voice in the community, we will absolutely make that happen.

Whoa whoa wait, the salary?

Of course. We believe in hiring good people, and paying them well. This is a big role, it comes with a big salary. We’re also offering equity, because we want everyone to be in the same boat.

Ok I’m sold. Let’s chat.

Great! Our CTO Ben gets a small electric shock for every application; so even if you’re not interested you should try it out to keep him on his feet.
