Job Description

Fresha is the number one beauty and wellness appointment booking marketplace worldwide. We did our Series B funding a couple of years ago and are now close to closing our Series C to accelerate our scale-out. We're headquartered in London with global offices located in NYC, Vancouver, Sydney, Dublin and Warsaw. Fresha takes the hassle out of running beauty and wellness businesses with an industry-leading, freemium SaaS platform for managing appointment bookings, payments, staffing, inventory, CRM, marketing, financial reporting and much more. If you haven't heard of us, you might've heard of Shedul - we used to be them. Our platform is used by over 50k merchants, in 100+ countries, who together book over 15 million appointments every month, and both of these numbers are growing massively month-on-month. Having achieved great product market fit in multiple markets, we're now scaling worldwide. Our product engineering team is located all over Europe, and we're looking to add great talent to bolster our existing teams and build out new teams.
What you'll be doing
  • Join a cross-functional product team within a tribe that is focused on a key area
  • Have joint ownership of your teams approaches and methodologies
  • Be involved in all stages of building products from inception, through delivery and beyond
  • Help to shape the future of our architecture and best practices
  • Contribute to a healthy engineering culture of feedback and growth
What we're looking for in you
  • Enthusiastic engineers. We don't believe engineers are defined by the technologies they use, but by their attitude and application. Our stack is Ruby/Elixir/TypeScript, and if you're happy to work with those, we'd love to support you
  • Experience developing complex web applications/APIs in distributed architectures
  • A passion to write well-structured, idiomatic, tested code that balances elegance and pragmatism
  • Strong communication skills, ability to self-organise and work well within and outside your own team
  • Strike a good balance between technical and product thinking
What you can expect from us
  • We are focusing on building new teams with inclusivity in mind, and are keen to talk to people from all backgrounds and walks of life
  • A place for you to grow and learn with a culture focused heavily on feedback
  • Minimal bureaucracy with a focus on progress over process
  • Genuinely interesting and challenging work that will draw upon your whole skillset
  • The flexibility to move between a variety of teams and roles within the organisation - we want you to the work you are passionate about, when that changes we want to help you

  • A competitive salary (negotiable based on your experience)
  • Flat organisation / management structure where everybody is empowered to have an impact within the company, and where high performers are offered fast-tracked career development opportunities
  • The opportunity to work with incredible analysts and data scientists, with a company that produces millions of records of data every day
  • The opportunity to work on a global platform which is transforming a growing industry segment and have high impact within it
  • Flexible working hours
  • A central office in Waterloo, London… Which we're not utilising too much as we're mostly WFH, but it's pretty nifty :)
  • When we are in the office, we have all of the usual bases covered: fruits, veggies, cakes, coffee, and tea to keep you fueled; various team events as part of our culture

  • Google Meet with an Engineering Manager
  • Take home coding exercise
  • Tech Interview (again via Google Meet) with an Engineering Manager and 1+ engineers
  • Offer! (or some detailed feedback on why we decided to not offer)
