What you’ll get


  • A salary of £50,000 to £60,000 for the Lead Front End Engineer role.

  • We offer a generous equity options scheme at a fast-growing, stable company backed by social good investors. We give back to all our employees who get us closer to achieving our mission. 

  • We believe work-life balance matters and have flexible hours, working from home, and support part-time work. Also, we’ll happily hear how we could support you if that doesn’t work.

  • We believe in giving back and give you one paid day to fundraise for a charity of your choice. Many of our team members also volunteer or are trustees.

  • We want you to travel well with the Cycle to Work scheme, season ticket loan, and soon a new office when lockdown eases!

  • We will support your journey through our mentor program that offers structured support from senior team members within the business and a strong network of investors and customers. 

Come as you are. Love what you do.


At Enthuse, we want to create a positive impact on a global scale. And to do that we know that the people at Enthuse have to reflect all global lives and identities.

We work flexible hours, we support remote working, and if that doesn’t quite work, we will definitely listen to what will. We’re striving to create a place where all feel valued and welcome — and would love to hear how we could do that for you.
