Graft Talent is extremely excited to be working with a brand-new start up based in Leeds City Centre. An exciting opportunity to join a company that came about thanks to the pandemic and the founder being locked inside (like the rest of us) during the new normal. As the outside world stopped, and business’ started to fail, one business was born.


  • Developing the core functionality of the business’ main platform.
  • Working with the founders, you will implement new functionality and have an unprecedented say in the future technical direction of the platform.
  • This is not a role for someone who just wants to crank out code; you need to be interested and engaged with how the code you write impacts the community we are building.
  • This is an important role and carries a roadmap to CTO, if that is you, as well as wealth creation opportunities through share ownership.


  • Focused
  • Bright
  • Engaging,
  • Someone who can work around people who aren’t necessarily from a tech background.
  • Someone who is bored and tired of the corporate grind.
  • 1-3 years’ experience within a similar role
  • Familiarity with the tech stack


The platform is made up of a selection of microservices hosted using serverless and container technology to support scalability and fault tolerance. The core platform is written in Node.JS. The front-end is written in Vue.js and utilises Nuxt.js for server-side rendering.

The video platform is built on WebRTC utilising custom-built tools to provide real-time interactive functionality for the company’s experience. Websockets are used as a signalling solution on top of the WebRTC capabilities.

All infrastructure is hosted on Amazon Web Services.

You will be joining an exciting young company that thrives on not being part of the corporate grind, working in a relaxed environment to allow you to grow into the position naturally. An informal vibe will also add to the feel of the company, whist also being supported in a collaborative setting.


  • 30 days holiday
  • Equity participation opportunity
  • Career path to CTO if desired

You must be eligible to work in the UK and have the relevant documents to support this.
