The Role

We are looking for a self-motivated and enthusiastic front-end developer with a keen focus on quality and performance to help us improve a class leading website where the customer experience is paramount.

You will join a group of experienced developers at Kyero.com who are constantly pushing themselves to greater heights and redefining what is possible from a small team of passionate individuals.

This is a fully remote role where you’ll totally enjoy the virtual yet close communication & connection you’ll have with not just the development team, but also marketing and sales.

We believe that happiness and productivity form a virtuous feedback loop that can be optimized for the benefit of all. We do this continuously and enthusiastically.

Read on for our story & what we’re hoping you can bring. If this sounds like a good fit, we’d love to hear from you!

 

Kyero’s Story

Kyero helps people from all over the world to find their sunshine. We make it easier for international property buyers to achieve their dreams.

Many of us have moved countries so we know the joy of finding the place you want to call home. We also know the highs and lows involved in making that happen. Our founders, Louise and Martin, started Kyero based on the lessons they learned when they bought land in their favorite part of Spain. They harnessed what they learnt to create a company dedicated to helping people move from dreaming about sunshine to living in it.

 

The Business

We are an international team of 30 fully remote people located across 7 countries, combining Marketing, Sales, Customer Services, Design, Development, Data, Finance & Admin. All of whom are truly passionate about the vision and purpose of the business.

The team brings exceptional knowledge of the market and a complete focus on the buyer. With a culture of trust and inclusion, we are firm believers in the power of data, the principles of test & learn & the importance of promises & proof points.

Our response to the Covid crisis was to protect our team and control costs whilst rapidly evolving our proposition to test new commercial models, evolve the buyer experience and explore new ways of working. We begin 2021 with added strength. Within the last 12 months alone we have launched new branding, introduced a Freemium commercial model, established a marketing team & new partnerships for Data, SEO & CX, whilst firmly establishing ourselves within three new international markets.

And we’re only just getting started …with a clear vision, strong leadership and expertise across the team, we’re more ambitious than ever and have the perfect recipe for continued growth!

 

Our Values

We help people find their sunshine. For some, that’s a home in the sun. For others it’s a place where they feel at home, where they belong. For our team, it’s the chance to find sunshine in their work, their home and their life.

  • Know our customers, no assumptions.
