"If you've ever built a company you know Omnea is solving a critical pain point. This could be an entirely new category in enterprise SaaS.”

- Claire Hughes Johnson, Ex-COO, Stripe

Omnea named top 10 SaaS companies in the UK to watch 2022 by Beauhurst.

Mission

The way businesses buy stuff is completely broken. Whether it’s SaaS, hardware, or contractors, the average B2B purchase takes over 3 months, requires 50+ emails, and involves multiple different stakeholders (IT, Legal, InfoSec, Finance, etc.). No one likes the way it is and it’s slowing businesses down.

Omnea’s platform handles the entire purchasing process: giving employees an easy place to make requests (Intake), managing the necessary approvals for the purchase to be made (Approvals Engine), and automating all renewals management & supplier risk assessments. And Omnea gives finance & procurement leaders visibility into how money is being spent.

Given the current market downturn & increased focus on capital efficiency, there has never been a more vital time for businesses to use Omnea and get control of their spend. This is Spend Control 2.0 — built for tougher times.

Our team will grow from low double-digit to 200+ enterprise customers, from 10 to tens of engineers, and through 10x revenue growth...all in the next 2-3 years! You will support us in driving the growth of our product, team, and company through each chapter as we go from ‘start-up’ to ‘scale-up’.

You’ll be joining us at the most exciting possible time — we raised an initial $5m from two tier 1 VCs and 30+ renowned founders & angel investors in summer 2022 and have since become one of Europe’s fasting growing SaaS businesses. We’ve built an incredible & passionate engineering team (who were all top performers at companies like Cazoo, Primer, Freetrade, etc.) and we’ve shipped our platform to many renowned & happy customers (Lookout, McAfee, Onfido, Typeform, Tractable, etc.), all whilst managing to stay lean & operate efficiently.

Now we’re ready to scale. We are looking for the best software engineers out there to help build Omnea into one of Europe’s leading tech businesses.We're looking for a software engineer to join our early engineering team & help build Omnea with us. Our team has built & shipped products to hundreds of thousands of users before, at both start-ups as well as more established companies like Freetrade, Cazoo, and Passfort.

What Can You Expect?

    • Join a Skilled Team. You'll become part of one of Europe's fastest growing early-stage companies, working alongside a team of experienced full-stack product engineers who were all high performers at some of the best tech companies out there.

    • Direct Product Impact. You will be involved in key product decisions, including prioritising our product roadmap, defining project scopes, and technical direction. You'll have a significant voice in discussions about product strategy, user experience, and technical feasibility, making sure we steer our product roadmap towards success.

    • Work with Modern Tech. Omnea is fully built on cloud-native and serverless technologies. Our primary stack is based on Typescript with React & Material UI, Postgres, Hasura and AWS Serverless Technologies such as Lambda, DynamoDB and EventBridge - all managed via AWS CDK & SST. We use Sentry, Lumigo and LogRocket for observability and Github Actions for automated testing and deployment.

    • End-to-end Ownership. You will be entrusted with end-to-end ownership of your projects. From product, design and architectural decisions, all the way to deployment, monitoring and measuring impact on users. You will work across the stack, covering everything from DevOps to styling. We expect each other to take initiative, be proactive in problem-solving, and continuously seek improvements.

    • Continuous Delivery. We embrace continuous delivery to keep our systems agile, responsive and safe. You will be deploying small, incremental changes to production multiple times per day, ensuring a constant flow of improvements and rapid adaptation to any customer needs or technical challenges.

    • Tackle Scalability Challenges. As we grow our customer base from tens to hundreds and expand into new product domains, you will help us scale our product, architecture and processes efficiently while maintaining performance and reliability.

    • Collaboration & Autonomy. You will often work autonomously to take charge of your projects, make decisions, and drive your work forward. But as a lean and high trust team, we remain quick to collaborate and support each other with challenging problems together.

    • Customers at the Centre. Being really responsive to customer feedback and issues is key. We actively encourage engaging with customers, understanding their experience, and iterating our products based on their input to deliver solutions that truly delight them.

Omnea’s vision is as exciting as it is challenging. This is an incredibly unique opportunity for ambitious engineers who want to have an outsized impact at the start of something big.

About You

  • You’re experienced (3+ years) with building full-stack web apps having designed and implemented features from start to finish using Typescript and AWS.
  • You focus on high impact. You've spearheaded the engineering of critical systems before, working with best-in-class tooling in AWS, IaaC, observability and quality assessments. You want to discover the best ways to bring this to an early-stage startup.
  • You know best practice. You understand what it takes to build highly reliable & well architected products. You build with quality, observability & redundancy at the forefront.
  • You’re ready to get a lot done. You enjoy all aspects of building a product and are comfortable moving across the stack when necessary. You enjoy problem solving and thinking from first principals.. You’re ready to pick up new skills and build quickly
  • You’re someone who craves ownership. Maybe you find yourself gravitating towards the meatier engineering projects or you want to level up DevOPS or SRE game. If there's an opportunity to work on something bigger, you're keen to take it on.
  • You’re a team builder. You’re a team player. You're excited by helping maximise team performance, whether that requires you to learn from others or to take the time to explain things, provide actionable feedback, and level up those around you.
  • You’re comfortable when faced with ambiguity. You're happy to tackle problems without a predefined clear definition or obvious solution, and are excited to have autonomy to make decisions as you go, all whilst having the support of an experienced team alongside you

Nice to haves

  • You’ve performed exceptionally at something else in the past, be it academics, sport, work etc. You’ve gone above and beyond the norm.
  • You love engineering, it’s more than a job for you. You’ve contributed to open-source projects or worked on side-projects in your spare time just because you enjoy it. You’re confident in your ability to tackle ambiguous problems and crank out quality code.

    It’s more important to have the right mindset and ability to resolve problems than your exact experience with certain languages and tools, so please don’t let that put you off applying — we often back hunger over experience.

    At Omnea, we embrace diversity. To build a product that's loved by everyone, we need a team with all sorts of backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives. We encourage you to apply even if your experience doesn't quite match the full job spec! And regardless of your race, religion, colour, gender, or anything else! If you want to chat about Omnea & think you could be a good fit, please contact our Head of Finance & Ops, Claire, at claire.w@omnea.co to arrange a call.

    Transforming the way businesses purchase

    Omnea is supported by the two best VCs out there and 10+ of the most renowned Founders of the last decade, who have invested an initial $5m to help us develop our core product, helping how businesses streamline their purchasing processes.

    Omnea Life

    Omnea is made up of a small team in pursuit of one mighty goal; to help businesses thrive. Our journey has led us to guide some of Europe's fastest-growing start-ups, working with the best investors and bringing multiple products to the market.

    We understand that persistent progress needs a certain kind of mindset. One, that wants to define their career by personally having a direct, visible and meaningful impact on the industry. Nowadays it is easy to swap meaningful and exciting trajectories for elaborate company perks, such as free food and regular sponsored time working abroad.

    But at Omnea we want to give you both. All while our focus feeds a culture, where we give you autonomy over your area, create a diverse team with the best peers to learn from and help you work towards goals, that actually excite you.

    To ensure that Omnea feels like your business, we are giving early team members equity above the market rate.

    Here, we are building in a space that hasn't been disrupted in over 20 years. The opportunities we are creating for some of the most exciting companies out there are vast and of incredibly high quality. If this sounds like you, come and join the ride!

    Omnea Benefits

    We are carefully thinking about all things that foster a healthy, balanced and fun work-life balance. Although we might not always have the most advanced & out-there company perks, here at Omnea we want to ensure that the environment created and the benefits received contribute to your life in a meaningful way. We find that so many companies nowadays will prioritize fancy perks and work environments over actually taking care of their employees - we want to make sure employee wellbeing actually comes first.

    We are hoping you can help us shape the culture and promise to listen to the feedback of our team to expand this list.

    A top percentile compensation package - we give more equity than usual so that each team member has financial and emotional ownership over Omnea.
    Company-sponsored remote working opportunities - we'll go to nice places and work together remotely. And Omnea will sponsor it.
    Actually fun (!) company events and offsites! We have a rota so that everyone can choose what we will do (so far there have been strong tendencies towards nature and animals).
    A cool office in central London with snacks, drinks, games and regular dog visits.
    Private meditation coaching and other fantastic well-being support - our CEO has a pretty thorough mental well-being routine and as a company, we want to support and encourage people to develop their own. And Omnea will sponsor it.
