Front-end Developer (Growth Team, London)
Front-end developer job in rapidly-growing, funded, social-cause startup, changing the world.
Who is Chuffed.org?
We’re a purpose-led company that’s transforming how people think about charities around the world. Instead of thinking of the charity muggers harassing you on your way to work, we’re making the face of charity awesome, exciting projects that people want to be part of.
Since launching in October 2013, we’ve raised over $10M/£6M for 3,000 projects in 20 countries. We’ve reunited a Somali refugee mother with her son that she hadn’t seen in 23 years; we’ve helped legalise medicinal marijuana for the terminally ill; we’ve transformed how the Vanuatu Government does disaster relief… and a lot more.
What you’ll be doing?
You’ll be joining our new Growth team in London whose main goal is to get our product from thousands of campaigners to hundreds of thousands. You’ll be responsible for:
- implementing the experiments and new products that the Growth team wants to test – this will be a mixture of front-end/design work as well as building back end features:
- Possible activities include: creating landing pages, changing user flows, improving email designs, improving tracking, creating adaptive education in our campaign editor and more
- instrumenting our app to collect the right data to measure the impact of experiments, gain deeper insights on how users are engaging with our product and where they’re leaking out. We use Segment, Mixpanel and Google Analytics, but are open to others
- working with the engineering team to ship code every day
As you get more familiar with the product and our customers, you’ll be providing input on what growth initiatives we should pursue too.
In addition to this, we expect the entire team to do customer support at different periods of the year as we believe that this is the best way to understand the needs of our customers and the issues that they have in their lives.
What we’re looking for
- You care: we’re a purpose-led company and we love working with people who care about the world around them
- You learn: because there’s always another JS framework around the corner and a better way of creative value for our customers
- You play nice: because we all love coming to work and we want you to too
- Expert knowledge of JS/HTML/CSS (5 years+), and be familiar with PHP (Laravel)
- Experience with Angular, React or other modern JS frameworks
- Design and UX sensibilities and can play around in Photoshop
- Awareness of cross-browser compatibility issues and client-side performance considerations
- You’re data driven, curious about what customers value and why they behave in certain ways
- You understand A/B testing, cohort analysis, AARRR, high tempo testing and have implemented them previously
- You’ve worked with the non-profit/charity/advocacy sector before
- Based in London, UK: Shoreditch or Hackney area
- Competitive salary package: we’ll normally pay a mix of cash salary and equity
- You’ll report to the CEO (London), and work closely with our Growth Marketer (London) and Customer Advocate (Melbourne). You’ll also interface in with the Engineering Team (Melbourne, Sydney).
