icanhire.com is a self service vehicle rental platform. Customers have the use of a range of vehicles parked locally that they access 24/7 via mobile phone. We launched in January 2011 and have grown to over 200 vehicles and over 8,000 active users in London. We plan to have 500 vehicles operational by the end of 2014.
Its important that we work with developers who know their stuff. We're moving very fast, and we need people working with us to do the same.
Of equal importance is having people on board who believe what we believe. We believe in creating efficiency, convenience and value. We believe in keeping things simple, flexible, available for all and acting fairly. We believe in treating people right and not being an ass. We believe in the culture of freelancing, co-working and flexible working in general. We believe all these things make the world a better place - yes, I just said that :)
On the foundation of these beliefs, we have built icanhire. At the time of writing, we're a small team of about 20 people, most of whom work flexibly from home. We want our developers to feel a part of this. We have devised a Profit and Exit Share scheme whereby developers take a proportion of the annual earnings of the business. This share is in addition to being paid for time spent developing.
You must be proficient with PHP/JS/MySQL and working with git. Development tasks are posted onto a project management board and developers pick what they want to work on. We have a short development cycle with a new release every couple of weeks so we try to keep tasks and features succinct. Each task is assigned a budgeted time frame and how much we’re looking to pay for its completion.
Fitting with our belief of flexible working, developers are free to come and go as they please.
