We have product fit for our existing product and we now need to build the capability in the business to allow us to build the next generation of the OYNB product. Our customers love our product, but want it to do more for them. That is where you come in.
Our plan is to initially develop a mobile web application and then depending on our customer research we may decide to develop a mobile app to improve the customer experience.
We have an office based in Edinburgh but we are fully remote so would accept applications from anywhere in the UK.
Our company values are important to us and the bedrock of our culture and how we work
Serve others and make a difference
- We obsess about our customer
Be the change
- Change is a constant - we embrace change with a smile.
- Failure is success, without it we cannot learn. We fail fast to learn fast - we celebrate it.
Be tenacious and don’t give up
- We deliver and go the extra mile and ask the question - “what else can I do?”
- Autonomy - We have autonomy to make decisions to hit our goals.
- We are accountable for our actions and deliveries.
Be passionate and have fun
- If things are tough, we take some time to talk to someone 121, then we get back in the room and fight the good fight together.
- We aim to live by example and live life better.
Think and act world class
- We lift rocks - If we see something that needs to be improved, we own it until it’s done and leave it in a better place than we found it.
- We have a culture of self-improvement and we play to our strengths.
- Innovation - We constantly strive to improve and learn from our experiences. We have no barriers.
