Full Time / Shoreditch, London
enthuse.me is the place for people to promote themselves and their expertise online. Currently the product is a profile builder for individuals to showcase their expertise by hand-picking the best examples of their work, knowledge or passion and cutting through the noise of multiple social networks and portfolio websites to focus on the things that really prove they know their stuff.
Users can pull in relevant content from various connected websites, display links and statistics from social profiles, or upload their own original content. In the future, we aim to allow users to sell their time, products, or services, host discussions around their ‘insights’, and connect with each other to recommend and find other experts to work with.
We’re a young Silicon Roundabout start-up, passionate about intuitive UX, clean design, indestructible code and creating a truly useful product…
As a small, super-focussed team we thrive on generating ideas, pulling them apart, throwing away half the bits and putting them back together in leaner, meaner ways. We like to experiment, build, test and we’re constantly striving to be simpler, more elegant and more effective in the way we work. We want the same for everything we build.
The company was founded from the corner of someone else’s office at the start of 2012 by tech entrepreneur Dan Jacobs, whose previous exploits saw him surfing the first dot.com wave and working for the likes of Virgin.com, Lastminute.com and BBC Online before developing and launching the hugely successful Prime Card for IDT Global. We’re now based in our own premises in the heartland of London’s bustling Shoreditch tech community, eating falafels on Fridays and drinking a lot of tea. See the current team.
As one of the companies in the UK using ember.js in, we founded, sponsor and run the London Ember.js User Group.
