Front-end Software Developer
The Clowdr team is looking for a software developer.
- Front-end web application development
- User-experience design (UX)
- Heroku / Hasura
Who we're looking for
The new Clowdr front-end software developer will contribute to all aspects of platform development, focusing on UI/UX design and implementation.
The ideal candidate will have a broad skillset related to web application development, with at least 3-5 years of experience designing and developing web user interfaces.
They should be easy to work with and comfortable working remotely, internationally, and at flexible times. The international nature of our business means meetings can be at a wide range of hours. In particular, our development team works on European time.
They should have no conflicts being employed by a UK company (though they needn't be UK resident).
Starting date: as soon as convenient.
What we offer
A critical role in a public-interest, community-focused company that is developing cutting-edge, open-source technology for a super-hot market sector, driven by a passion to combat climate change while increasing inclusiveness of conferences.
A friendly, flexible working environment.
Clowdr is a young and quickly growing conference platform that aims to reduce the carbon footprint of academic conferences by offering a more attractive virtual alternative.
Clowdr CIC has 5 founders, all contributing to every aspect of the business. Ed and Ross are full time CEO and CTO. Both are software developers by background, though Ed also has entrepreneurship training. Benjamin, Jonathan, and Crista remain full-time in their academic positions and contribute as much as possible to Clowdr. Ed and Ross currently do the bulk of technical development, and the whole team contributes to business development and operations. We are in the process of onboarding a business development manager to focus on scaling up the latter activities.
