The Unique Opportunity
JOIN THE CORE TEAM OF A TECHSTARS 2020 STARTUP
At Elanation we work to make a significant positive impact on society. Our mission is to democratise sports education whilst build the largest social network for kids globally.
Since Elanation was founded in 2016, we have had one mission – to build the world’s healthiest social network for kids. Today, 1 in 3 Internet users is a child with 170,000 new kids coming onto the Internet every single day. Sadly, 70% of kids have stopped playing youth sport by age 13, 1 in 3 is suffering from obesity and 1 in 10 from anxiety.
At Elanation we are pioneering the next generation of online social networking. Our focus on intelligent software engineering, user-centered design and data analysis transpires into a world-class product stack that fuels the positive development of mental and physical health for kids globally.
But, we need you! Elanation is gaining recognition from international brands, athletes and clubs spanning the USA, Australia, and Europe and our core team is seeking a versatile Software Development Engineer to join us. We have a special and unique opportunity for a senior software engineer to lead the technical design, development, and deployment of our products, joining our founders as a late co-founder.
We’re looking for a motivated, highly-collaborative, self-starter and team player who is comfortable owning and driving the development of new features and services. You need to own the product and act as head of technology while still writing the code yourself and be hands-on on all technology. As you grow the team, your path to get the role of the CTO or VPE is wide open.
Join a global mission
Our north star is to get 1 billion kids moving daily – and we’re already on our way 🚀
