You're an experienced developer, passionate about social impact, looking to create the biggest positive impact of your career in an awesome team environment.
At Beam, we're creating a more just society by building radically better technology and services for those most in need.
We've already transformed the lives of hundreds of homeless people by supporting them through training, into rewarding work and stable homes.
We've done that by crowdfunding almost £2 million from over 10,000 supporters and building genuinely ground-breaking products.
We're a wildly ambitious team, backed by some of the world's leading tech investors and led by a hugely experienced, hands-on founding team.
We're a crew of friendly, collaborative problem-solvers who live by our core values of transparency and supporting each other.
We also get to do some fun things :)
And we're seriously just getting started.
Life as a Developer at Beam
We're looking for someone to work closely with Julian (that's me, the guy who built Beam!) to help shape and build the future of our tools and products.
You and I would spend a lot of time pair programming, brainstorming hard problems, prototyping different ideas, throwing them away, and prototyping them again.

What do you get for all your hard work?
We will buy you any equipment you need to do your best work, including a new Mac, external display, office chair — whatever you need. If you need to rent a desk at a co-working space, we'll pay for that as well.
If you prefer to work part-time, we'll make this happen whenever we can - whether this is to help you meet other commitments or strike a great work-life balance.
We work hard to make sure every employee is given the freedom, tools, trust, and support to do the best work of their careers.
