ArtSpotter is a fun, young and innovative startup, based in London, that is working on the intersection between art and tech. It's an exciting place to be right now and we're excited to be looking for more awesome people to be a part of what we’re creating.
ArtSpotter is an application that allows the user to discover the art that’s around them and interact with galleries, museums and street art. We're changing the world of art through web and mobile engagement and are passionate about bringing art to everyone.
We're looking for a great developer who:
• would like us help us revolutionise culture on the Internet and mobile.
• come onboard to an early stage startup and enjoys getting their hands dirty, sometimes a hack is the best way to ensure we keep shipping fast :)
• having good hunches on how to improve things
• but not minding when A/B testing means axing weeks of code.
In terms of skills
A Rails Superstar; who wants to grow with an early stage business.
Not scared to learn; if Angular looks like the best tool for a job.. research & learn..
Be able to take on and develop our API (which supports web and mobile frontends).
We're a small team, so you need to not be scared of pitching in.
Desirable; be a polymath (being interested in a range of different things is awesome in our books) .
ArtSpotter is a VC funded startup with a big ambition and are growing fast. We‘ve got our V2.0 out and been featured in TechCrunch, Guardian, The Next Web, Read Write Web and on BBC Radio 6 Music with Lauren Laverne (to mention a few). Things are progressing fast, so this is a really exciting time to come and join and help shape the future of a disruptive startup.
If you‘re the kind of person who enjoys the early stages, deploying and iterating, dreams big and can help us scale into the No1 art site then you‘re for us! It's up to you to deliver ;)
Some practical things
We'd like this to be a full time position.
This is primarily an on-site role; remote working is cool but we'd like to keep everyone is one place at first.. once we all know each other a little more then let's go out to play!
While we‘re based in an funky studio with a couple of other awesome startups in London, there may be travel involved to Europe and the States, and of course some of our partnerships means there's sometimes some good perks.
Just send us an email telling why you'd love to be a part of the team, and a link to your github/website/linkedin so we can see what you've done.
