Global Talent was founded in 2017 by four tech entrepreneurs with solid backgrounds in startups, Apple, Nest & Google. We work with well-established companies and start-ups from Europe and the US to build efficient extended engineering teams for them, taking care of recruitment, high-end workspace, HR operations, growth and development, and more.
We are looking for a Lead Backend Engineer to join our UK client — a modern geolocation app that brings places together — Bimble.
Bimble is an energetic and ambitious geo-locational tech start-up based in the UK, Oxford. The Bimble iOS app was launched in February as a User Generated Content social platform for places, and we’re growing quickly gaining hundreds of users everyday now. We are creating a platform that focuses on interesting places and the ability to collect, organise, share and discover them. People like to use apps for specific things and until Bimble, there was no app designed and built explicitly for your places.
Places are at the heart of everything we do. The best place recommendations come word of mouth but at Bimble we believe this limits you to your own circle of friends and that it begs to be brought into a broader digital community. We are part of the London Mayor’s International Growth Accelerator called Go to Grow and have just completed Oxford University’s Liber (Leadership through Crisis) 6 month Incubator. We also have a weekly growth rate of >6% which means we meet the Silicon Valley criteria of a high-growth start-up.
Bimble is a killer idea, we are growing quickly and it’s an exciting time to come on board!
