Codat is a fast-growing technology company located in Clerkenwell, Central London. We are a universal API for small business financial data.

We are well-funded with a large and growing number of enterprise and fintech clients - most recently we were awarded a £5m grant from the RBS Capability and Innovation Fund to help power our growth.
You will joining front-end developer in a new team responsible for the creation of an exciting new Codat product. Our product is relied on by a wide range of financial institutions, including start- up fintech lenders, major payments processors and leading high-street banks, and the brief of this new team is to produce a portal our customers can use to interact with the product quicker, without needing to complete a full integration with our API. You’ll be integrating with Codat’s best-in-class API for financial data on small businesses and building innovative front-end experiences on top of it to help our clients make sense of that data.
Our engineers operate in small, focused, multidisciplinary, and highly autonomous teams of around 4 to 6 people. Our teams tend to include:
We’re looking for an experienced front-end software engineer who can take full ownership of the front-end element of this new product. We need someone who is comfortable setting up all the elements of modern, scalable SPAs from scratch, and who can guide and mentor our team to ensure it is built in the right way. The successful candidate will be working closely with our product team and pilot customers to refine and iterate the product spec. We will be hiring a small team of high-quality front-end developers into this team over the next 6 months and anticipate that the Front-End Engineer will eventually become responsible for line-managing, mentoring and directing this team.
No matter what we’re doing, whether we’re speaking to customers, partners or to each other, we try at all times to live by our values:
Useful - We believe in delivering technology that solves real problems for real businesses. We have a real want to do the stuff that isn't always sexy but makes a difference.
United - We believe that the people in the best teams push and enable each other to excel. We have each other’s back - when things go wrong, there isn't blame, we work together to fix it. We embrace differences of opinion to end up with an even better outcome - not letting our egos win.
Unstoppable - We believe that constant drive towards a single, clearly stated goal is the primary method of building great things. We are biased towards action - our decisions are informed and then we act. There is no such thing as a hard problem - it is how we outperform others.
