Head of Engineering - Jaimy

Head of Engineering - Jaimy, Brussels
Jaimy is the future of high-quality home renovation and repairs in Belgium. We are an intelligent marketplace which connects customers with the right trader to carry out work in their home. Our accurate estimates powered by machine learning technology mean both traders and customers save time by saving on unnecessary site visits or lengthy negotiations on price before starting works. Customers can easily access high quality, trustworthy traders, whilst traders have access to high quality, relevant local jobs.

There is a very clear market gap in Belgian for consumers seeking high quality traders; Jaimy seeks to fill that gap, and is backed by a large Belgian corporate firm. This is just the start: we are scaling up quickly and are set to launch on nationwide TV later this year. We’re looking for smart people to join us on this journey to build a company that delights traders and home proud customers alike.
