We are looking for an ‘A-team’ Frontend Web Developer who’s seeking to build their portfolio by full ownership of the code and design of the animated elements. We’re a 3 year-old startup with an exemplary 7 person team who are building an app called Otium Circle. Currently we are doing a lot of branding work so we can connect better with businesses to join our app (it’s currently called inapps). This website will be the first stop before these businesses download our app. So we have to get it absolutely right - your attention to detail will be key. Become part of our dream of starting a company that will change society.
Only direct applications from candidates please (i.e. no agencies or equivalent).
As our Web Developer, initially you’ll be 100% responsible for frontend web development using the Vue framework. In the future this role could expand to dynamic content provided by API endpoints. You’ll have loads of support from our Backend Architect and me (co-founder and backend developer).
Our vision for Otium Circle is to help people make the most of their spare time. So we’re creating an incredibly visual and simple place for lifestyle businesses to:
sell their experiences and products in their own inapps which live in our app (like departments in a high end department store)
create a community with their clients using our Whatsapp-like chat feature
We’re a very passionate team, so much so that we’ve come very far working in our spare time. This also has the advantage that we are forced to think very carefully about our product design and the customers we are working with. To give you a flavour of what we’re striving to create, check out our iOS/Android apps:

We stand for quality over deadlines; attention to detail over iterating wildly, and being friendly over competitive behaviour.
Don’t forget you’ll be building something core to our business. You’ll get loads of support from all the Tech and Customer teams. Our Brand Lead, Kirsten, is based in South Africa, our Head of Customers and co-founder, Pascal, is based in Germany and I’m in London: so we don’t really care where you are based. Make sure you’re the sort of person who puts pride into the software you write and you’re within a bunch of timezones from London. We also don’t care when you work (full time is not necessary) as long as you make time for our weekly team call.
The website design (apart from animated elements) is done. We want you to work with us for 3 weeks part-time and for that we’ll pay £300. We expect you to work around 10 hours per week. But what we really want is someone to become part of the team afterwards.
If this gets you excited please get in touch, we are looking forward to hearing from you!
