Obby is London’s leading education marketplace. We help independent teachers, makers and artists earn a living doing what they love - teaching, whilst providing Londoners with the best educational classes, courses and workshops.
From painting to pottery and soon to include language lessons, music classes and more, Obby’s mission is to provide incredible learning experiences, help people get offline and learn something you fall in love with.
What we are looking for
We are looking for engineers to join our growing, remote engineering team to help us continue to build a better way of learning, as we look to expand our platform, and launch into more learning categories and geographies.
The team is distributed and we are primarily looking for developers in Portugal to work alongside our Portuguese lead engineer.
How we work
The engineering team is led by Pedro. Pedro loves building things from scratch (especially electric Skateboards and lately, building a fully electric bus), cryptocurrencies, and tweeting about Elon Musk.
The product team is led by our co-founder Max, who loves Bayern Munich football club, Pirate Metrics and listening to Pedro talk about Elon Musk.
We work remotely across a shared timezone and are focused on building new products from scratch and running a continuous growth process.
We are building a product-focused culture and despite working remotely, try to get together in Lisbon, or London, once a quarter to work together for a week (and also spend some time together listening to Pedro talk about Elon Musk - he really likes Elon).
Who we are looking for
Obby is built on ReactJS and MeteorJS, as well as Bootstrap. Fluency in Meteor and React is ideal, although we are willing to consider developers who have experience with other JS frameworks and are interested in the challenge of learning Meteor.
We are looking for experienced developers with at least 3+ years of experience.
Additionally, we are looking for engineers who are excited about the Obby mission, providing independent teachers with a platform to share their skills and generate an income doing what they love.
