Job Description

## Summary
§ Join an exciting well-funded startup on an important mission that is growing quickly.
§ Use your expertise on an exciting early stage product with real users.
§ Huge potential for personal growth and development.
§ Share in our success and enjoy every day of your work in a great environment.

## Who are we
Orbital Witness is a PropTech-meets-LegalTech startup profiling legal risk in property transactions. We’re backed by leading seed stage tech and property sector focused venture capital funds. Orbital Witness is a small but growing team of driven individuals from a diverse set of backgrounds. We work collaboratively to build a valuable product for real users in some of the largest companies across the legal, property and insurance sectors. We enjoy delighting our users and exploring new technologies to deliver fantastic product in these traditional industries.

Despite being an early stage startup with ambitious growth plans, we recognise the need for sustainable pace in order to achieve the long term vision. We work hard but we measure success on goals, not the clock, and we care deeply about making our workplace a friendly, flexible and supportive environment where everyone can learn and develop.

## What are we doing
Combining backgrounds in the space industry and law, the founders started with an idea to bring the history and evolution of a property to life by reaching into the archives of satellite imagery operators. Steadily, this idea has evolved into a unique solution for real estate lawyers, combining property and legal data, imagery, and user-driven analysis to pinpoint legal risks in property transactions. Our end-goal of a completely automated assessment of legal risk in a property transaction will deliver immense value to banks, real estate investors and developers, lawyers, insurers, and residential homebuyers.

## The role
We are looking for a passionate and diligent engineer to join the Orbital Witness team in building our SaaS product for automated legal assessment of property and land.

You’ll own the end-to-end development process of key features in our web applications as well as being a primary driver of product and technology strategy. You’ll be joining a small, dynamic team with a focus on quality, usability and impact. You’ll be involved in every stage of the development lifecycle; from discovery and design, through implementation to deployment, maintenance and improvement. You will be supported by a cross-functional, collaborative and growing team in delivering an impactful product to real users.

## Responsibilities
● Design, develop, deploy, maintain and support production quality software
● Elaborate user stories and design implementation of functional and nonfunctional requirements
● Champion quality across the product and the codebase
● Directly contribute to UX / UI decisions and be a proponent for consistency and ease of use throughout the product
● Collaborate with individuals across the business to ensure the features you develop have real impact
● Participate in architectural and code reviews to continuously improve the quality, maintainability, security and scalability of the platform and web applications
● Develop our existing map-based product as well as laying the groundwork for the company’s ambitious growth plans

## You should apply if
● You have professional experience developing Vue.js applications (SPAs) in a production environment
● You’re familiar with advanced component patterns (smart vs. dumb components, living styleguides, etc.)
● You’re experienced with authentication/authorisation concepts, especially in a B2B SaaS context
● You believe testing, code quality and user experience are important and prioritise improving nonfunctional requirements for yourself and the rest of your team
● You’re comfortable with Continuous Integration / Continuous Delivery and being responsible for the code you write in production
● You are comfortable working with relational databases (we primarily use Postgres / PostGIS)
● You’re interested in working with GIS / Geospatial data
● You prefer to ship early and iterate based on feedback and data
● Experience working with server side technologies (eg. exposing APIs, data modelling) will help you be more productive but isn’t essential for the role

We value diversity at Orbital Witness, and would particularly encourage applications from those who are traditionally underrepresented in tech. We’d love to hear from you even if you don’t match all of the above criteria or are seeking other opportunities that we’re not currently advertising.

Benefits
● Competitive salary;
● Company stock options through involvement in employee stock option pool;
● Startup perks (flexible working, equipment budget, pension scheme, etc).
