FundApps is a bootstrapped SaaS scaleup that helps investment managers monitor and comply with worldwide regulations. We were one of the world's first "RegTechs" and we're shaking up an entire industry. Our client's love what we do (Net Promoter Scores of over 50) and this has lead to phenomenal and consistent revenue growth.Our first area of focus was to help managers with Shareholding Disclosure, a complex regulatory problem without a decent solution in the market. We were first to licence legal information from aosphere, an affiliate of Allen & Overy, which underpins some of our rule packages.Since that time, our product has become the undisputed market leader for the management of Shareholding Disclosure. We have also added new ground-breaking services - Sensitive Industries and Position Limits - and in 2020, have introduced Rapportr to make reporting simple for our clients.We hire people who want to work on difficult problems - scaling our data process to deal with high volumes of data, simplify our users' lives with new and better workflow, and creating new opportunities to innovate and automate painful compliance compresses - in a way that's simple, understandable and easy to manage.We pride ourselves in getting our engineers up and running fast expect to contribute to the code base from day one! and We're a small team of smart, friendly people who collaborate closely and take pride in delivering amazing software. Youll help shape what we work on and how we do it. You wont be micro-managed or stuck in a rut.Our team values are professionalism, sustainability, and psychological safety; we hold each other to high standards, give each other considered, caring feedback, work smart and look out for each other. Learn more about our engineering culture here. The Role Do you trust your hunches?Have gut feelings proven right so often for you that you don't second guess yourself anymore? Do you have a reputation amongst friends and family for dreaming of things that later came to pass?The job description may say, "Senior full stack engineer", but only because "shaman commanding the powers of the Void" wouldn't really fly on our LinkedIn ad!We need someone who has managed to fuse mastery of arcane magic (or JavaScript, as others might know it) with an ability to see problems before they happen. To read minds, scry, scan, probe and foresee. Often, those around you won't know what they want either, but we expect you to. We don't care how you do it - crystal balls, tarot decks, rune stones - but you must be able to read the very fabric of reality itself and pluck answers before the questions have even been woven.This role is part-time for 32 hours per week and we are flexible with an arrangement that suits you (ex. 4 full days, 5 shorter working days or a blend of both).
