About Them

Over the last 5 years this B2B Tech Scale-Up have been making waves playing a key role in the digital transformation of a global billion pound disruptive industry, pioneering where others have followed. After continued success and their recent acquisition by an industry giant and FTSE 250 company, they move forward as an independent scale up keen to build out their tech team to support their growth.

You'll be joining a team of ~30 spearheaded by a talented and award nominated female advocate for diversity in tech leading their product strategy, you'll be joining at an exciting time!

About The Role - Senior Frontend Developer - Lead in 6 months - React

You'll be joining as a Senior Frontend Developer in a diverse (in tech, ages and much more), open minded and supportive team happy for you to play to your strengths, learn new things, work across teams etc. They love to have a laugh and regularly get together either remotely or in person.

There's a sophisticated, multifaceted, but equally as simple mobile & a web application with technologies like React, React Native, Node, AWS Serverless, Hapi, Express, Docker, Socket.io, Redis, MongoDB... they won't limit you to just frontend if you'd like to learn more!

You'll be working on greenfield projects developing new features and functionality for their platforms as part of their continued roadmap to take their tech to the next level. As well as this, you'll be helping to maintain current work as well as refactor/migrate old architecture from their initial monolithic platform over to their new tech.

There's currently 2 cross-functional development squads of 6 developers each of different levels and roles including mobile, fullstack, frontend, backend, infrastructure and more. With 2 at lead level and another who's recently moved from lead frontend developer in to the head of engineering role, there's still more room for seniors & leads to have an impact now or in the future...

The idea is for you to become the Frontend Lead after ~6 months time (why 6 months? if you and the team are happy after your 6 month probation when you've settled in, you'll be promoted to lead), so you'll need to be someone who's keen to move in to this position if you were to join. They won't be expecting you to necessarily have leadership experience already, but at least some mentoring experience would be needed.

You'll be the most senior in the team when it comes to frontend with a small team of developers to support. You'll be a hands on as a developer and will be actively encouraged to share your ideas, support others, and play a key role at a higher level in the business as part of the leadership team.

Key Requirements

  • 5+ years experience as a Frontend Developer
  • Expertise with React and/or React Native
  • You've worked in a similar environment - Startup/Scaleup ideally
