A bit about us

Too many people are struggling in jobs that negatively impact their lives. Stint was founded to solve this problem. We empower workers to choose when and where they work so they can build the life they want. But it’s not just the Stinters we’re helping. Stint is transforming the way businesses staff - helping local pubs to multinational chains operate in a more efficient and effective way.

Our app connects a flexible workforce to a variety of businesses for short shifts of work, and these short shifts make a big difference. For Stinters: Stint offers a flexible way to earn money on their terms. For businesses: Stint transforms staffing and operational efficiency, for the benefit of teams, customers and their bottom line.

We are operating in lots of cities around the UK, and at the end of 2021 we were named in LinkedIn’s Top 10 UK Startups. We have a team of 100+, over 125,000 Stinters have created accounts, and we work with some of the biggest names on the high street like PizzaExpress, Chipotle and more. And we’re only just getting started, with international expansion just around the corner.

We’re looking for someone who believes in our mission and embodies our core values – Kindness, Integrity, Ambition, and Energy. We have a strict no ego policy and complete idea meritocracy. We want everyone to love what they do, continuously take on new challenges, and be inspired to build long-term relationships with colleagues as they grow with Stint. We like to have fun and we enjoy working hard without taking ourselves too seriously.

We look forward to working with you!

What you will be doing As a Tech Lead at Stint, you will be responsible for leading a team of engineers. You will be the technical decision maker in your team. Product requirements, tech stacks and team structures change, so you should be flexible, and able to align others around a common goal. You will be a pragmatic, passionate technologist; embracing the challenge of delivering technical excellence whilst remaining aligned to business needs. You’ll be adept at simplifying complex concepts and systems, and be able to effectively communicate with both technical and non-technical peers. You will also be a mentor, and play a key role in the continued development of Stint’s engineering capabilities. You will be an important individual contributor. Teams at Stint are cross-functional and highly autonomous; they are empowered to define and build solutions to business problems.
