This is an unusual opportunity to join a small founding team at an exciting stage of rapid but organic and customer-fuelled growth. We’re a fully remote team working to UK time zones.

Job Description

Do Nation is a small but well established B Corp who’ve been running a high-impact climate action platform for 10 years now. We’ve helped over 25,000 people to form healthy, environmentally friendly habits, and have a customer base including the likes of innocent drinks, Siemens Plc, and UCL.

Earlier this year we partnered with Count Us In, an ambitious global project aiming to encourage 1 billion people to take climate action by 2030. The Count Us In platform is powered by Do Nation technology, which we aim to improve and develop heavily over the coming months and years - with your help.

Product Vision
We currently have a Django codebase that has been built over 5+ years to include the functionality it does today.

We now have growing demand for the whitelabel versions of our platform, from a mixture of high profile corporates and non-profit organisations, often involving a collaborative development approach; delivering on these projects will be a key part of your role.

We have also identified several large areas of development to improve the core functionality and scalability of the site, with the ultimate goal of increasing the depth and scale of our impact, taking users on a journey from individual action to climate advocacy and leadership.

Responsibilities

  • Working directly with the founding Do Nation team to define features and the development roadmap
  • Implement features using the existing stack and adopting new technologies as required
  • Work well with other developers, product manager and client support teams
  • Document code and processes
  • Qualities/Attributes

We are looking for someone with:

  • 2+ years experience building and scaling production grade web applications
  • Extensive experience of working in Django
  • React, Typescript and GraphQL knowledge
  • Curiosity about new technologies but pragmatic about getting things done.
  • Comfortable operating in a rapidly changing environment
  • Experience working successfully in a distributed team
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Last but not least - you must be interested in and excited by the challenges and opportunities of sustainable living - this is our lifeblood

About Do Nation:
Do Nation is all about encouraging healthy, environmentally friendly habits. We have developed an online platform where anyone can either make a pledge or run a campaign to raise pledges - pledges to do things like cycling to work, wasting less food, or using reusable coffee cups.

Since 2013 we have been running successful campaigns with organisations including innocent drinks, Pret a Manger, and Network Rail, helping them to encourage their employees to make pledges and save carbon, water, and waste.

We’re a small, nimble, and committed team, scattered across UK and France. We strongly believe in the potential of our unique model to create a wide scale, meaningful impact on one of the most important issues of our time, and we’re hungry to deliver on that.

As we emerge from Covid-19, demand for our services is soaring and we’re looking at a period of rapid growth. This is a unique opportunity to join a well-established but nimble start-up as part of it’s core team.

While we are commercially focused, social impact is the fuel that drives us - and as such, we are proud to be a certified B Corp. We have an attractive employee benefits package, including training budgets, volunteering days, and slow travel policies.

This us a remote role based in the UK so you will need to have the right to work in the UK.

Other benefits: 31 days holiday (+1 day for each year worked with us); slow travel holiday bonus; pension contribution; flexible work policy; annual training budget; 2 volunteer days / year; coaching; potential for equity through employee option scheme.

To apply: Click the apply link and send us your CV and a cover letter via Ethical Jobseeker outlining why you’re interested in the role, and why you think your experience makes you a good fit for it. Please also specify the earliest date you’d be able to start in the role, and attach or link to a copy of your CV and any other relevant projects, Github accounts etc. 
 

At Do Nation, we value diversity - of opinion, ethnicity, gender, religion, disability. and background amongst others. Given we’re all about engaging the population at large, it’s particularly important that our team understands and reflects the diversity of the population as far as is possible given our tiny size. We encourage applications from all corners of society, and are committed to building a culture of inclusion throughout the business.

Company Description

We're a small startup with a big idea: we want to create a world in which sustainability is mainstream and helps everyone live healthier, happier lives.

Because of the social nature of Do Nation, our reach is growing fast and we’re on track to positively influence hundreds of thousands of new people this year - and millions in the years to come.

We won't lie - the journey has been tough at times, but at last the world seems ready for a platform like ours - and it needs it too.

We still have so many ideas about what’s next - from shiny new features to exciting new markets.
