[Looking for staff] [Birmingham]Technical Co-founder / CTO

(Rhys DAVIES) #1

Why can’t event tickets be returned and shared with a few simple taps on a mobile?

Ticketflash is a mobile ticketing company, registered with E4F, and our mission is to deliver transactable tickets that are fully shareable and returnable. We aim to create a more transparent market to squeeze out touts, challenge the secondary market and improve the whole ticket buying and ticket-holding experience.

You’ve worked as a freelance or in an agency, or you may be looking for your second job. Either way. you’ll have built or contributed to a few different projects and can demonstrate that.

Like us, you’re intrigued by the concept of transactable tickets, and believe in our mission.

You’ll be working on:

Our iOS app, written in Swift
Our backend platform, written in .NET Framework 4.5 with a SQL Server database (we’d like to update this to .NET Core 2.2).
Our event door app, written in JavaScript and the Electron framework
Developing or delivering our new Android app, written in whatever you’d like; Java, Kotlin, React Native, it’s your choice!
Developing analytical tools to understand ticket buyer behaviour in detail.
Expanding and developing app features including geolocational security and last-minute activation of tickets.

We hope that you will:

Have experience with at least some of the technologies we’ve mentioned above (iOS Development with Swift, .NET & ASP.NET, JavaScript, Android Development, and Azure).

Have some public evidence of what you know. Do you have a stackoverflow profile? A hacker news profile? Do you tweet? Write about technical things on Medium? Contribute to open source in any way?

At least 3 years of professional experience
Live somewhere in Great Britain and can make it to Birmingham occasionally.
Have lots of ideas and a willingness to share them!

We’re a startup which means things can be chaotic. So well as being able to write good, clean code you’ll need to be able to solve problems on a daily basis using your own initiative. Flexibility and resilience are key!

If you’re smart, friendly and love building software — we want to hear from you.


We’ve boot-strapped the beta version with the help of contractors – so we’re in the scrappy early stages. Your joining full time would be contingent on successful fund-raising, but you’ll be working with a founder who has raised an A-round of £300k for an earlier project.

As a key partner, a generous share option package is available to reflect your time and commitment.

We’ll get you a top of the range Mac (you’ll need it for iOS development). What you install on there is up to you.

If you’re interested and can’t commit at this stage, but would consider working with us on individual milestones as a paid contractor, get in touch.

Where you’ll work

Although we’re based in Birmingham and will need to see you in person from time to time, you can work remotely the rest of the time.
