Position: Front-end software developer
Employment type: Permanent
Location: London or Edinburgh (temporarily fully remote due to COVID-19)
Compensation: £30,000 - £45,000 + equity
We are looking for an enthusiastic front-end software developer to join our team and help build the next-generation DIY investment platform. This is a unique opportunity where you can play a key part in shaping the future of how people invest.
Working directly with the founding team, building user experiences that retail investors will love and influencing the direction we take the product from day one
Riffing off existing designs as well as your own, drawing inspiration from the best online experiences (and inventing some new ones)
Iterating upon user feedback and analytics
Defining front-end standards for development, testing and deployment and refining our visual language
Shaping the direction of the product
Proven experience with React, Redux and TypeScript
Styling with SASS, LESS or CSS, and use of responsive design techniques
A eye for design and an ability to take a rough idea and run with it
Bonus points for experience distilling complex domains into understandable UX using charting, infographics and slick copy
Ideally, experience with CI/CD and testing techniques for single-page apps
Ability to work independently when needed, and to collaborate in a multidisciplinary team
Ambition, enthusiasm and fierce customer focus
Eligibility to work in the UK, and strong written and spoken English
Experience in finance is helpful but not required, so if you can point to examples of your work that distill a complex domain into an empowering user experience then we want to hear from you no matter your background. More than anything though, your focus will be to delight customers and to build a platform where investors feel supported, safe and able to make informed investment decisions.
