Senior Front End Developer - £90 000 (Fully Remote)

You are someone who prides yourself on making smart decisions. The question is in this job market, what is the smart decision?

The smart move would probably be to join a company that does not rely on VC money. Finding a profitable business with a broad customer base would likely be smart. A customer base who really appreciates what this company does for them and will continue to use their service even as they look to reduce their spending in other areas. In fact even better would be if this business helped its customers save money in the face of the threat of recession and the rapidly rising cost of living. This advert is about a role with that business.

With 1 million plus customers already and growing, this UK-based business helps people consolidate their monthly household bills and also uses its collective bargaining power to negotiate amazing discounts. Delivering high-quality service to that number of customers requires a brilliant technology department. Until now, the Back end had been the focus, but they are now keen to spend time on UX, Product and Data so they can continue to grow quickly and deliver high-quality customer experience.

Your first task would be working on the Partner Sales Tools team, which serves tens of thousands of independent sales agents. As the the most senior frontend-focused engineer, your role would be to deliver amazing UIs using React and especially React Native, with the occasional excursion into native iOS and Android SDKs.

Key Technologies 

  • React Native, React, TypeScript/JavaScript

  • APIs via GraphQL

  • High-performance internal systems via GRPC 

  • Deploy Kubernetes over both AWS and GCP plus on-prem

How do they work? 

Although they have over 200 people working in technology, this business still manages to move quickly. The way Mark their CTO put it is that they “strive to deliver big company scale whilst moving at small company speed”.

They have been offering fully remote working long before the rest of the market and they have mature processes in place that ensure relationships trump location. 

What is in it for you? 

  • The role is Fully Remote, and the team is spread across the GMT +1, with the core business in London. You can work from wherever you like and have a budget of £500 per quarter to get together with your team "off-site". 

  • Salary between £80 000 and £90 000 (more for superb talent) and a CTO who believes in rewarding the engineers who are the core of their business. 

  • An opportunity to join an already established thriving company and work on setting the course for their Front End.
