Senior Software Engineer

Imagine working for a Remote First company, that provides an all-expenses paid Retreat (every quarter) for you to catch up with colleagues in a sociable way, where you can join in lots of activities, and talk about the next innovative projects you will be working on!

Add to Event is an award-winning startup that has helped to find suppliers for over 100,000 events, ranging from birthday parties to large corporate events for the likes of The BBC, Accenture and JP Morgan. Our innovative marketplace makes it incredibly easy to find whatever you need for your event, from giant tipis to woodfired pizza caterers.
