We are looking for an enthusiastic back-end developer to join our team in London to build the world's leading alumni networking and management service.
About the company and product
Alumnee (www.alumnee.com) is developing an innovative solution for alumni from schools, universities and companies to effectively connect and network. Through our iOS app, later to be ported to Android, users will quickly be able to find fellow alumni nearby, get great introductions, view yearbooks and see a centralised feed of their alumni world. All of this will be aggregated from Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. This data is also incorporated in a powerful web solution for community and HR managers to leverage our user data, so they can keep their alumni records up to date, conduct mobile fundraising and obtain amazing statistics about their communities. We also have an Alumnee Communities website tailored for the needs of alumni offices that has its own unique set of features.
We are building a company that aims to be the leader in the Alumni communication and connection matching industry. Our vision is to be the No. 1 connection tool for school, university and company alumni within the next 3 years and continue on the path to being a billion dollar company.
About the culture
We are building a dynamic and innovative team of great people, who will bring this company to the pinnacle of the industry. We love to learn fast, build faster, think ahead and strive for the best design and user experience. Expect to visit many events and meet interesting people across industries along the way.
