ABOUT GOOD-LOOP

Good-Loop is a purpose-powered advertising platform, on a mission to connect brands, people and good causes globally. We build products that make it easy and profitable for brands to do good at scale and our advertising technology is used by some of the biggest brands in the world, from Nike and Adidas to L’Oreal, Pepsi, Honda and McDonalds.

Good-Loop’s carbon-neutral advertising has raised over $6m for charities around the world and planted over a million trees – all whilst supporting high-quality journalism and diverse publications.

As the first carbon-neutral BCorp in AdTech, Good-Loop is uniquely positioned to capitalise on the increasing consumer demand for businesses to step up and contribute to society. We’re a small, but agile and fast-moving team with a lot of heart and even more ambition.

ABOUT THE ROLE

Everything we build is designed to give back - to people, to the planet, and to our charity partners. Our developers are at the heart of this, creating and refining products that have generated over £4m for charity so far.

As a key member of the product and tech team, you will be responsible for expanding our codebase and bringing ideas to life. You'll want to get involved with building world-changing products, collaborating with other developers and business functions to drive revenue.

As our team is small, you'll be working across our product suite to enhance our current operations and help to deliver brand new initiatives. Day-to-day, you might be working on our web-apps (such as My.Good-Loop), our dynamic adverts, or our backend systems.

Our business is constantly evolving to meet emerging market needs; you can expect to learn something new every day and work with cutting edge technology and ideas to make a difference in the world.

On a typical day, you will be:

  • Working with our product design team to turn concepts into real products
  • Building improvements to our B2B and B2C offerings that will propel business growth
  • Helping to scale up our current product offerings to ensure we can manage increasing demand
  • Ensuring our adverts are functioning as expected, and providing code fixes where required

  • You're always happy to ask "what else?" and present new ideas to the team
  • You love picking up new technology and learning quickly
  • You enjoy working in a close-knit, supportive team and engaging in pair programming

ESSENTIAL SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE

  • Comfortable sharing your work and explaining how it functions - we'll be keen to talk through one of your projects during the interview.
DESIRED SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE

We don't expect you to have experience in all of these -- let us know which ones you have:

  • React
  • AdTech platforms
  • ElasticSearch
  • UX / User-centred design
  • Data science
  • Graphic design

Research shows that while men apply for jobs when they meet an average of 60% of the criteria, women and other marginalised groups tend to only apply when they tick every box. So if you think you have what it takes, but don’t necessarily meet every single requirement on the list above, please still get in touch. We’d love to have a chat and hear about what else you know.

WHY JOIN US?

We give a shit about leaving the world a little bit better than we found it, we’re a passionate and kind team and we’re constantly asking what else we can do to push our industry, and our work, to be better.

We’ve come a long way since we founded in 2016, and we have some ambitious plans to scale and expand across the globe.

We pride ourselves on a relaxed but productive working environment enabling both commercial success and personal development. No matter what stage of your career you're at - from paid internships and graduate opportunities right through to senior posts - we'll support you with the training and development you need to feel empowered to do your best work.

We offer some excellent benefits and perks.
