Job Description

React Developer? Great. Would you love to have a job where you…

  1. …work with the latest cutting edge technology and practices?
  2. …have a competitive salary, benchmarked against a peer group of the most innovative fintech companies in London?
  3. …have a flexible workplace that likes to say yes?
  4. …have 25 days holiday per year + your birthday off!?
  5. …have tech equipment of your own choice bought for you to work with?
  6. …have free onsite Nuffield Health Gym and pool?
  7. …work in a great location next to the Thames?
  8. …have tons of opportunities for progression and development (including managing your own team)?

Then this is a fantastic opportunity for you in a high profile project working with cutting edge systems for one of the most innovative personal and business foreign exchange companies in London. This is an opportunity for a passionate and experienced React Developer to join a 40 person technology team in London (there is also a 10 person team up in the north of England) and help build exciting new products! The environment offers a high energy startup culture with a test and learn mentality, but with the stability and opportunity for growth that comes from being a highly profitable company with a revenue of more than £1 billion annually; so you get the best of both worlds!

The existing platforms are being used by over 7000 customers globally and are in need of cutting edge design changes. The React Developer will join one of the engineering teams in a fun, fast-moving, hardworking and exceptionally supportive team of 40 engineers, and gain experience in a profitable industry disrupter. This project is just the beginning, the company have acquired a banking licence in order to bring a ground-breaking new product to market. Simultaneously, they are re-platforming the core platform onto a modern application stack (PostgreSQL, Express, React, Node.js) and expanding the engineering capabilities rapidly, and these roles are critical to their success.

Please apply for the role if you are a React Developer with commercial experience with most of the technologies/tools/practices below (although they are just a starting point, you will be empowered to recommend changes):

  • Building optimised, scalable modular websites using React/Redux
  • ES6
  • HTML, CSS3, SASS/LESS, CSS Modules
  • CI tools, e.g. CircleCI
  • AWS
  • Agile practices
  • Software engineering practices like BDD, TDD, Pair Programming etc.
  • Learning from and passing knowledge to like-minded and talented colleagues

It would also be great, but not essential, if you are a React Developer with some experience in:

  • Node.js microservices
  • React Native (or an interest in finding out more)
  • GIT workflow
  • Leading teams (either as a team lead, or informally)
  • Interviewing and on-boarding new team members.
If this role sounds interesting to you please apply today or email and one of our consultants will be in touch within 24 hours!
