React jobs at Capital on Tap

Capital on Tap

Capital on Tap believe that the future is all about the impact that small businesses can have in the world. As such we are on a mission to help them thrive – cash flow shouldn’t be a barrier to success.

Since launching our business credit card and business loans in 2017 we have been taking off like a rocket! We are one of the fast growing companies in the UK (Sunday Time Fast Track 100 in 2017, 2018 and 2019) while still posting a profit to fund our future growth. 2020 looks to be just as exciting (and busy!) as we continue on our incredible trajectory.

Our people (and our office dogs) really are the best thing about working at Capital on Tap. We have built a dynamic, fun and vibrant culture where your opportunities for growth are as big as your ambitions.

The Role

Software development is at the core of our business and has driven our success and growth over the past 7 years. We are now looking for exceptional and innovative developers to join our amazingly collaborative team to help us continue this growth and take our software development, products and services to the next level.

We want someone that is a technology evangelist, who loves solving problems and has a real passion for their work. If you want to work somewhere where you can see the impact your work has for colleagues, customers and the business, whilst working with the best technologies and people, this role at Capital on Tap could be for you.

We are looking for a Mobile App Developer with a strong focus on Javascript, React Native and UI/UX design, but who is not afraid to dip into backend work when the need arises. You will work with product management, design and the business to bridge the gap between UI/UX best practices, business requirements and technical constraints, taking an active role in defining how our customer facing mobile apps look, feel and function.

  • Troubleshooting code level problems quickly and efficiently
  • Building accessible user interfaces

The Team

We are a diverse team, all eager to learn more and to help each other out. We love building innovative systems, solving problems and working together to really make a difference in the business.

We work in an agile methodology in small cross-functional team which we feel saves time, increase efficiency and improves communication between everyone involved in the project.

We offer great progression within the team, offering routes into people management or tech leadership where you can really hone in on the architecture of the software. All of our team leads and tech leads have been promoted quickly from within.
