Anvil is a platform for building full-stack web apps with nothing but Python. Our developer customers say it’s “really really cool”. Our business customers say “7 times faster than traditional tools? Now there’s a return on investment.” If you haven’t checked out the 6-minute demo on our homepage, we promise you it’s worth it.
We’re an early-stage startup, but we’re already profitable and growing fast. Your responsibilities will be wide-ranging and you’ll get to shape where Anvil goes next. (And yes, you will get meaningful equity.)
We have a supportive company culture; we are humans first and entrepreneurs second. All roles offer part-time or flexible working, and we believe that a diverse company will be best-placed to serve our diverse users. (Read what it’s like to work here.)
We’re currently looking for interesting, adventurous people to join us in the following roles:
Full-time (part-time/flexible also available); on-site in Cambridge, UK
We’re looking for a developer with great communication skills, to show people how to build awesome things with Anvil. You’ll be building example applications, writing blog posts and tutorials, leading events and helping our users – from individual developers to huge tech companies – build their apps.
You don’t need to be a Python expert already, but you will be pretty soon: you’ll be writing the examples that other people will read as they learn! You’ll be working directly with the Anvil authors to help you get up to speed.
It’s rewarding work - developers love being introduced to Anvil (our booth is always crowded at conferences!). Plus, there are all the advantages of an early-stage startup: you’ll have a lot of autonomy and huge impact, and you’ll shape how we do all our developer outreach.
If you would like to apply for this role, please email us at email@example.com.
(Direct applicants only; no agencies please.)
“ Joining Anvil is the best career decision I have made.
My colleagues are some of the most skilled developers I've seen anywhere, and they seem able to turn their hand to any business task with ease. We are building something beautiful and some of the best moments are gathering around someone’s monitor to see the latest cool thing they’ve created.
Working with our users is also a joy. I get to meet a huge range of interesting and friendly people, who are working on so many interesting applications. The varied nature of the job also keeps me stimulated.
We have a strong sense of purpose - Anvil is a tool that has been sorely missing for the web and represents a huge increase in developer efficiency.
Our company culture gives me the freedom to be creative. Listening to others is a strong value for us. If you want to get something done, you will rarely encounter a barrier.
It is a constant pleasure to work in an environment of such competence, efficiency, pragmatism and enthusiasm.”
