Fast growing startup seeks Bubble engineer

Hi Bubble community!


  • We’re a funded, fast growing early stage fintech
  • Looking for an experienced Bubble dev to take the lead on product
  • Remote friendly, GMT → GMT+4 preferable
  • Dedicated / full time team member preferred

Our fast growing South African startup is looking to add an experienced Bubble developer who wants to help build the next big African startup. We’ve successfully founded and exited major fintech startups before, and we already have product market fit and early stage funding.

Ideally we’re looking for someone who wants to go beyond just contract work, but rather be involved with the team and work closely with everyone on how we prioritise and execute our ambitious goals.

About us:

We’re building a modern, easy-to-use HR and Payroll platform for small businesses. Initially, this means we’re processing payroll and payslips for thousands of employees, but as we expand this also includes offering other integrated financial services to these small businesses and their employees.

We’ve proven product-market fit and we’re growing fast, in a very competitive space. The team is small and our stack is primarily Bubble (app) and Webflow (marketing site), with the founder (me!) having built the app to date - you’re thus not inheriting a broken codebase but rather pair-programming with me.

About you (the ideal candidate!):

You’re an experienced and curious Bubble developer, and equally comfortable on the front end as you are on the backend / workflows side of things. Although our app is rooted in Bubble, if you have experience connecting APIs (/ Postman) that’s a huge bonus: as we grow an increasing number of our new features will rely on APIs too so being comfortable with traditional coding is really useful.

Although we’re based in Cape Town, South Africa, we’re open to remote developers. We’d prefer you to be within a 2 hour timezone from SA (in other words: between GMT and GMT +4), but all candidates will be considered based on experience & merit.

You need to be able to demonstrate previous Bubble apps that you’ve built, and show real experience. We’re not looking for junior devs at this stage: instead you need to be able to lead the development and take ownership of crucial decisions.

To apply:

Please reach out to me at bernard [at] hellohr [dot] co [dot] za , and include

  • examples of what you’ve built before
  • Where you’re from (if remote)
  • CV (if applicable)

I am in JHB- I run system dev for a large SA distributor but have some friends that may be suitable- I’ll tell them to apply if interested. Keen to find out more about what you building- all the best.
