What are we not looking for**

In one word… egos. We’re a young business, so along with the grand designs and building systems there’s all sorts of mundane stuff that will need to get done and we don’t have a big team to do it.  We need someone who will get stuck in and isn’t afraid of doing a bit of everything.


Career Disclaimer

Working at DeadHappy won’t be for everyone. We’re highly motivated and focused on growing our products and technology. That means getting stuck into what you need to do but also getting involved in things outside of your experience and functional expertise.


We have a pretty cool office in the heart of Leicester, where we meet up to socialise and collaborate face-to-face. That said, our culture is one of high autonomy and high trust and we believe that the right people are grown up enough to figure out how to balance what works for them and for DeadHappy in order to get the job done. We support all the usual working preferences that you would expect in any sensible business (e.g. remote working, very flexible hours, unlimited leave). It will be an adventure, we’ll all learn a huge amount along the way, and the best news is that we’ll also pay you some money.

If you are ambitious, looking to progress and want to create something unique, you’ll find no better place to work. We have big plans for growth,so there will be plenty of opportunities for expanding a career in a range of directions for the right person.
