About The Role
We are working with a leading E-Commerce property scaleup who have recently secured 20% of the market share – making them the market leader in their industry! Following these successes, they’re looking to escalate their operations and onboard a senior UI engineer in a product-first position to help cement their strong market position.
After rapid growth in the last few years, they’ve recently had to secure a new office space as they have no plans to slow down! They’re very big on collaboration and look to use TDD and other agile methodologies where appropriate, encouraging their developers to take a passionate interest in the product at hand and understand their users. The founders are also technical individuals, and this technology-driven approach underpins the company and is clear from the impressive calibre of engineering.
Although now a market leader, they still have a startup mindset and remain a close-knitted team. The interview process for this position attests to this, with key interactions with recent joiners, members of the operations team, and the CTO himself. They are leveraging this collaborative culture to improve their product and transform their industry for the better!
They offer flexible models of working and look for their employees to come into the office roughly 2/3 times a week but pride themselves on being accommodating. This is reflected by flexible start and finish times where necessary.
This engineer would be only the second pure frontend hire in the team, working closely with the Lead Engineer who has been at the company for nearly 6 years. They don’t use set frameworks, rather they’re looking for a frontend agnostic who will have experience with React.js, Angular.js, CSS, HTML, TypeScript.
They are looking for a senior engineer to assist them to build out new aspects of their core platforms and take a vested interest in the product by understanding client requests and user concerns. You will be responsible for the company’s UX features, so any experience in this field will be highly beneficial as you ensure that the best UI/UX practices are followed. The ideal candidate will therefore have a product and customer-centric mindset while assimilating the core platform with the business’ overarching goal.
As they don’t use set frameworks, this is a fantastic opportunity for engineers to take technical autonomy over their work and decide which technologies they use. This offers a bold next step for engineers looking to improve their programming and architectural skills in a high-calibre environment!
3+ years of commercial software engineering experience in a consumer-focused or online business.
Commercial experience with a range of front-end technologies, including (but not limited to) React.js, Angular.js, TypeScript, CSS, HTML, Vue, Node.js, C#.
Excellent communication skills as you will interface with the business and gather requirements from multiple users both internally and externally.
Experience working closely with product and an understanding of UX.
Flexible working situation, up to 3 days a week WFH.
Up to £120,000 base salary – with a bonus paid out quarterly and stock.
Bi-annual salary reviews.
