    Job Spec: Junior Developer for a Better World

    Want to make a better world? We’re hiring a junior developer to work on digital advertising (a web-app in disguise) that raises money for charity and empowers internet users.
    Salary: £18,000 – £25,000 depending on experience + share options
    Location: Edinburgh
    Flexible working and part-time / job-share options are available.
    This is an exciting chance to do exciting work with an agile team.

    About Good-Loop Ltd
    Good-Loop takes money from advertisers, and gives it to charities.
    But Good-Loop is not itself a charity: we do this by making ads more effective, and we make a healthy profit on each ad. We are turning ads from a nuisance to be blocked, into a shared positive moment which funds social and environmental good. We also believe in treating internet users fairly, empowering them to be partners in the advertising and data ecosystem. Clients include Unilever, Kit-Kat, and Pepsi and we’re on track to over £1m in ad spend this year.

    About the Job
    Key tasks are:

      Developing our web-applications
      Front-end: Javascript and React, Back-end: Java
      Working with designers to deliver a good user-experience.
      Testing (and automating our tests)

    You’ll have the chance to contribute your ideas to product design, and take part in building the products and the company. You’ll be working with a world-class team: Dr Daniel Winterstein, an expert in creating online products, and Amy Williams, an international award winning entrepreneur, plus the rest of our great team. You’ll be doing frontline fast-paced software development — expect to do and learn a lot.
