Custodian is a community-focused software platform built for car enthusiasts. The platform makes owning a specialist car easier and allows our users to focus on what's important - enjoying their cars!
Custodian provides the automotive community with helpful ownership tooling to look after their specialist car(s), including embedded insurance, digital history files, invoice and cost tracking, image storage, car information sharing, reminders and more. The platform also includes a leading automotive podcast and publication (The Apex), several social features for car lovers and coming soon will be a marketplace.
We started Custodian two years ago bringing together top talent from the tech, automotive, finance, and marketing spaces. Since then Custodian has amassed over £100M worth of cars on the platform being managed by 3,500+ enthusiast owners. Our podcast and publication, The Apex, has also accumulated a following of over 22k+ die-hard automotive fans. We’re backed by some big names in the Venture Capital and Angel investing space and are well positioned to take our business to Series A in the next two years.
We have two core engineering teams at Custodian who represent the frontend and the backend parts of our application respectively. We are a polyglot company where Engineers are offered flexibility in the libraries, frameworks and tooling we use. Below are some of the languages and tools which we use at Custodian and you can learn a bit about how we structure our frontend applications by watching our co-founder Nathalia’s talk on Atomic Design architecture
Our core frontend web application is written in Typescript and React with heavy use of Redux and Redux-Sagas. We are currently looking to start work on our complimentary native app offering and Nathalia Rus who has led front end development until now will be leading that project. We’re looking for someone experienced to step in and take ownership of the frontend web development team.
We’re looking to launch three major new parts of our application over the next year including a marketplace (showroom), a social network around our users assets (on display) and of course our embedded insurance product. We need someone who’s excited about building the future of automotive ownership tooling and is obsessed with delivering best in class user experiences.
PS: if you love everything automotive, great! If not, you might just discover a world that has much passion, beauty, and exciting transformations ahead.
We’re a team of petrolheads, engineers, and marketers in London, Spain, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. We are all very passionate people - we love what we do, and each of us strives to be the best in our respective field. We’re product led as an organization and all operate with deep care for our users and the automotive industry as a whole.
In this role you’ll be working directly with two of our co-founders, Jeremy Hindle, exceptional serial tech entrepreneur, Forbes Under 30 and YC Alumni; and Nathalia Rus, stellar multi-talented engineer also known as @yeahgirlscode. You’ll also be working very closely with Andra, a very talented self-taught engineer. We’re a small team though so you’ll likely be involved and work with everyone a little bit!
