Full Time

Let’s Do This


Let’s Do This is the online company getting people offline.

We exist to inspire people across the world to come together and experience moments that make them feel alive and the first vertical we’re focusing on is mass participation sports events, where we’re proud to be the global leader.

We’re at a super exciting and rapid stage of our development. We now take over 750,000 bookings every year, driving growth for our industry from the large-scale races like the UK’s London marathon, Great North Run and San Francisco’s Bay To Breakers ,or grassroots races like those from RunThrough.

We’ve grown exponentially in the UK since our launch in 2017 and are now in the process of expanding within the US market with the same energy our brand represents. Our investors include Tier 1 VCs NFX, EQT, Y-Combinator and legendary individuals Serena Williams and Usain Bolt…

How did we do it?

With an exceptional team. The Let’s Do This team brings in experience ranging from London’s fastest growing start-ups to the world’s biggest tech companies, including Facebook, Google, Deliveroo, King and Skyscanner.

We’re passionate about finding fantastic people to add to an already extraordinary group. Having been named as one of the UK’s top 15 startups in 2021 by LinkedIn, it couldn’t be a more exciting time to join our team.

The Role

At Let’s Do This, our Software Engineers are an integral part of our product development process.

We are not a company that believes engineers should be hidden away from decisions, churning out code for features decided from upon high. Instead, our Engineers form strong bonds with cross-functional peers in Product Management, Data Science, Product Design and others to become experts working full stack across vertical slices of the product rather than horizontally along technology lines.

As a Software Engineer you’ll get to work with a range of new and emerging technology and tools but also help to evolve what we use in the future. We value engineering knowledge over specific coding languages, thus consider people from many backgrounds, but we are mainly TypeScript focused.

Our current tech stack includes:

Node, AWS Lambda and Typescript to write our backend (micro)services
React, Apollo and BaseWeb to create engaging user interfaces
MongoDB for most persistent data storage & Amazon EventBridge for our async event bus
Docker and Amazon ECS to schedule and run our services.


What You’ll Do

Every day you’ll be working closely with peers in the wider product org to define the future of the product.
Engaging with designers to build and improve the UX of our core products.
Working with our data scientists to design, run and verify your work using state of the art experimentation and feature flagging frameworks.
Actively contributing to every stage in the product development lifecycle, and owning the development of new features from conception to completion.
Shaping the future of our tech platform across the full stack.
Working in a small, tight-knit team with a rapid iteration cycle – typically a week.

What We Look For

Prior exposure to our stack (JavaScript/TypeScript, React, Node & AWS) is a plus. However, we know the best engineers can pick up new tools quickly and a growth mindset coupled with strong fundamentals is more important than knowledge of specific frameworks or languages.
You enjoy building products in cross-discipline teams using an iterative approach, driven by user feedback and data insight and care deeply about providing a great user experience to customers.
You’re not afraid of ambiguity and thrive when helping set the direction of the team
You understand the importance of prioritisation in your work to ensure a good balance between business impact and code quality.
You have interests that span the full stack – from building performant web experiences to debugging traffic latency in our AWS stack.


What You’ll Get From Us

A chance to work for one the fastest growing tech businesses in Europe.
Stock options that incentivise everyone across the business (from co-founders to most recent joiners) to work together to build our organisation
A highly impactful role that will shape the future of a major global tech platform with huge learning potential, work variety and exposure to real-world problems.
Collaboration focused business with teams harnessing knowledge from Deliveroo, Google, Facebook and many more hyper-tech/scale-up companies.
