A day in the life of a Better Proposals developer
Typically you’ll be working on new features for the Better Proposals product. Be that planning it out, investigating possibilities, straight coding or working with our CTO to launch the feature without issues. Perhaps there’s a bug or issue with the product and we need to make a quick change - you’ll be expected after a while to know where to look, make the change and push it live without a problem.
In this role, you will be responsible for coding, testing, modifying, and implementing new or existing features for the product. Your duties will include liaising with the CTO, writing clean, scalable code, following testing protocols, fixing bugs, and deploying updates.

  • Attending and contributing to company development meetings.
  • Learning the codebase and improving your coding skills. 
  • Writing and maintaining code.

  • Monitoring the ongoing security around the product. 
  • Considering ongoing updates and improvements to our tech stack. 


  • Working on various development tasks across different areas of our SaaS business.
  • Remote work in a global company, with a friendly and hard working team. 
  • Opportunity to grow within the company, head up departments and earn promotions and pay rises. 
  • Flexible working hours 
  • Salary $50,000 - $70,000 depending on skills and experience 
  • No work on your birthday 
  • 3 weeks holiday + 1 week for every year (capped at 6 weeks). 
  • Sizeable annual bonus based on personal performance and company performance 


  • In-depth knowledge of PHP,  Javascript and MySQL. 
  • Working knowledge of front-end technologies including HTML5 and CSS3. 
  • Good experience with Git. 
  • Prior experience with AWS infrastructure is a bonus. 
  • Excellent knowledge and experience around debugging. 
  • Ideally, you have experience working in SaaS before but not essential. 
  • Ability to learn new software and technologies quickly. 
  • Detail-orientated and excellent problem solving skills. 
  • Ability to work to deadlines and estimate timeframes accurately.
