What We’re Looking For

We’re looking for an ambitious Software Engineer to join the founding team of a VC-backed startup as we rapidly develop and scale our MVP. This is a remote role with the option to work hybrid in our co-working space at Balderton Capital in Kings Cross.

About Ambr

Ambr is a VC-backed startup on a mission to prevent workplace burnout – a global mental health crisis that costs organisations $155bn a year. We’re building software that automatically identifies burnout risk factors (like excessive meetings, out-of-hours communication, or low usage of annual leave) and then delivers nudges to employees, directing them towards healthier behaviours.

We’re a 3 person co-founding team of ex-Uber leaders, passionate about building a fast paced start-up with a sustainable working culture. We’ve been selected by TechCrunch as a 2022 Startup Battlefield participant (joining alumni like Dropbox, Fitbit and Cloudfare) and by WebSummit 2022 as an Impact Startup.

What You’ll Do

  • You’ll be employee number 1 – working directly with the founders to translate our product vision into impact, as fast as possible
  • You’ll solve technical problems with scalable, high-performing solutions
  • You’ll own all technical requirements analysis, solution design, architecture, and end-to-end technical delivery of the product
  • You’ll communicate technical information to colleagues and customers in straightforward manner
  • You’ll be comfortable with Javascript, React, Node.JS, MySQL, AWS & Serverless – and are keen & able to pick up new technologies quickly.

Who You’ll Be

  • You’re excited by the opportunity to work with a small, co-founding team in the earliest days of a startup
  • You enjoy translating product and business goals into great technical solutions that help us validate our product quickly
  • You’ll have 4+ years engineering experience in a production environment
  • You’re excited about what we are building and are passionate about preventing chronic stress and burnout in the workplace
