South West London / Part Remote
£50,000 – £75,000 plus benefits
We’re operational in Putney, London but opening more co-working sites across SW London throughout 2021 so you can base yourself in whichever site is most convenient for you. You’d be needed in the office 2-3 days per week but otherwise it’s flexible hours and location – your output is the most important thing.
We are the next generation solution to local, flexible working. Our vision is to become the go to ‘next generation’ workspace located on local high streets across the UK.
Conveniently located on high streets in residential areas (South West London currently) we provide a flexible, convenient workspace and community for people who live locally, limiting the need to commute and travel into offices.
We’re a funded, fast-growing workspace and café combining all the services and functionality of an office with the flexibility demanded by the ‘new normal’ way of working.
Our mission today:

We are at an early stage of our evolution, but our ambitions are to build an integrated platform from the ground up which not only supports the operations of the business (bookings, orders etc) but also provides exceptional customer experience, and embeds the flexibility and convenience at the heart of our brand.
Ideally this platform will also provide a way to enable our customers to connect seamlessly with each other depending on their needs, to network and collaborate professionally or simply to meet new people socially.

With a dual focus on the backend as well as the customer facing UX, you’ll take ownership for your tasks and see features through from start to finish, running the specification and build, shaping our development processes and defining our tech stack. You’ll be provided with a high-level roadmap and clear business needs, but you’ll have plenty of opportunity to add value throughout and put your stamp on things as you execute.
