As a Lead Prototype Developer at Founders you will be part of our diverse and multiskilled platform team which excels at crafting beautiful web and mobile products. The platform works in small autonomous product teams who work on one idea at a time. Each team works in a quick and iterative manner, with light-but-clear specs and with a focus on getting lots of user feedback.

We expect you to be comfortable leading a few other developers and taking pro-active responsibility for progress.
