Back-end Developer

Coherent is a SaaS application which specializes in simplifying the task of flexible workspace management.  We have been trading for three years in the UK and are launching internationally in September. As part of that, we are expanding our team and establishing a presence in Munich.  We are post revenue, fully-funded by our founder and not dependent on external funding sources.

We are currently a team of 5 (including product owner/manager). We are looking for a back-end developer to join the existing team. We offer the option to be based in Munich alongside our Product Manager or to be based in one of our coworking spaces in Bristol or Frome. Fully remote work is an option after a settling in period. We are a loyal, supportive team with a flat management structure. You will be treated like an adult, with a high level of autonomy and flexibility in how you work. The focus is on back-end development but with the scope to extend full-stack.
