Senior Full Stack Engineer
At Capdesk, we’re about to rewrite the history books on how companies use equity to empower their people. Nothing less! By unlocking the power of equity, we can change finance for good.
With equity made more accessible, businesses can unite employees, owners and investors through shared success. It might sound revolutionary, but it shouldn’t. It’s about time!
In the last few years, we’ve quietly become a leader in our field, providing the easiest way for private companies to digitise their equity information and manage and issue employee equity schemes. There are no longer any excuses for denying employees a share of the wealth they helped create.
We recently launched a first-of-its-kind secondaries market to take our mission even further. Now, employees can turn vested shares into equity as and when it suits them — no more waiting for the company to IPO.
Employee Equity Schemes are broken and have been since the industrial revolution; it’s time to create a world where everyone can be a stakeholder.
Capdesk is now remote-first (#2020) but mostly spread across Copenhagen and London where we still have bricks-and-mortar offices — though applicants are welcome from everywhere!
We’re a lean team, so every hire is significant to us. We’re looking for each newcomer to strengthen our mission, our team and our culture — and challenge us to get better.
We raised £3M in funding back in April and we have over 1000 of the hottest scale-ups in Europe using our software. We’re gearing up to go further, across Europe and beyond.
That’s where you come in!
So that's well and good, but what are we looking for really?
We're looking for engineers that have experience shipping stuff. You have put important features into production and want to keep shipping more. Maybe your current job features too much bureaucracy and not enough autonomy. Maybe you miss faster, simpler and easier times back when you were just 50 employees.
Well, well, talk about a coincidence! This is where Capdesk is right now. We have so much to build and tons of interesting decisions to make. We want to grow, but at a controlled pace. We're not on an uncontrolled hypergrowth journey and we value quality over quantity of hires.
You'll be building new features, improving existing code and collaborating with a team of highly driven and motivated individuals. You're autonomous, able to wrap your head around complex problems and curious to dig into the world of fintech. You like to ship iteratively and to consistently improve the code, leaving it better than how it was when you first read it.
You can take end-to-end ownership of a feature, while collaborating with designers and product managers — from the database model all the way to the front-end, passing by the API, security and CI/CD.
As a senior joining our team you'll be given a golden opportunity to shape how we work and build things at Capdesk. Your voice will be heard and you will be given ample opportunities to influence anything you're passionate about. We're a team of open-minded individuals that love hearing new ideas and learning from other's experiences. Bring your opinions!
