Front End Engineer - CharlieHR
Building a company is hard, but running one shouldn’t be. Over the past decade of starting and running companies, we grew constantly frustrated by the administrative headaches that distracted us from doing what we love. In a world where the odds are already stacked heavily against you, there is too much bullshit in the way of bringing great and important ideas to life. We felt there had to be a smarter way to run companies. So we decided to create it.
We’re building tools that empower entrepreneurs and small businesses to focus their time on what matters most, streamlining the burden of admin to enable the best possible chance of success. We’re beginning with any organisation’s most important asset - its people.
Charlie is a free HR platform for startups that looks after all your team’s vital information - from onboarding new staff to tracking holiday, managing benefits and more. We’re looking for enthusiastic, driven and hungry front end developers to help Charlie’s across the world to focus on what matters and succeed in making their mark.
