Life at ScreenCloud

At ScreenCloud we see the potential where others don't.

Digital screens could one day be as big a part of our lives as the web is today. Our simple digital signage software lifts information out of the places it lives and transforms it into beautiful, screen ready content. Working on everyday consumer hardware, ending clunky digital signage that could only be done by IT. We empower business owners, HR managers and technical teams to create digital signage that changes the way they sell, think and work. It’s quite the adventure. 

We’re very proud of our product, but it is our people, and shared values, which will take us where other companies can’t go. We have hubs in London, Belfast, Bangkok and Los Angeles, alongside people working remotely all over the world. This means finding lots of ways to come together, like our annual company retreat, monthly All Hands and weekly WIPs. We treat people like adults as standard, which means freedom to work how, and where, you feel best, and an equal responsibility to do great work. 

Coming from different cultural backgrounds (20 nationalities!), we’ve learned to cherish each other’s interests. Some of us enjoy the joy of daily running and looking after our dogs, whilst some of us live for the thrill of boxing, rock climbing or swimming with sharks. 

Product Engineering in Belfast

Belfast started with the mission to be the driving force behind ScreenCloud Apps. Apps provide the magic on screen; they're what let users hook up their social media accounts, design their store menus, or showcase their key team metrics.

Our goal now has widened to also provide a platform for users to build their own apps. We write SDKs and guidance for developers, and also develop visual drag & drop tools to produce your own apps in a no-code / low-code fashion.

Beyond that, we're pulling the customer ever further into the heart of our Product Engineering. By bringing Product Managers and Customer Support right into the hub, that user-driven clarity will always be top of our minds.

Responsibilities

  • Contribute new features to apps across our whole catalogue, including news ones. Right now, these are all built in React, with each then using the tools & techniques that best suit it.
  • Become a core member of the Apps group, building tools and best practices to make it easier for developers across the company, and even our customers themselves, to build their own ScreenCloud apps
  • Run your work on a variety of devices, from simple Fire Sticks through to powerful Intel machines, and from 9 inch iPads up to 65" smart TVs
  • Push us to experiment and try new techniques to constantly improve the quality of the apps we build(We’re super interested in bringing more animation and interactivity to our screens next!)
  • Collaborate with designers, testers and product owners to ensure the customer experience is perfect
  • Get stuck in with us on prototypes, POCs and shaping MVPs to experiment with the constant stream of ideas for where we take digital screens next. Then help get these into the hands of real customers and running in the wild of course, no-one wants a stream of POCs that go nowhere!

Requirements

  • You have experience building apps in a modern JavaScript framework like React, Angular or Vue
  • You have extensive experience with JavaScript, and might even have worked with TypeScript or Flow before
  • You have experience in building a modern web page with CSS that works across a range of screen sizes
  • You work best in small teams and deliver the highest quality code when you’re surrounded by great people. And in return, you share your own learnings with the team to help us always improve
  • You enjoy working with designers and product owners to iterate on an idea and ensure the resulting app you build looks amazing
  • You care about performance and making sure your app runs great for a wide range of customers

Bonus points if you have experience with any of the following:

  • End to end testing with tools like Cypress or Selenium
  • SVG or WebGL Animation experience with libraries like three.js

  • APIs built in Node(Express,Koa, Lambda)
  • Working with cloud providers like AWS and GCP

Company Values

TRUSTING

We only employ bright, engaged, ambitious grown-ups with a talent for what they do. The upshot of this? We trust our team’s integrity at all times, which means no “clocking in and clocking out”. We encourage home-working and don’t limit ourselves to our employees who are living within a commutable distance from one of our hubs.  

TRANSPARENCY

We pride ourselves on this value, whether it’s sharing our numbers (warts and all) with our employees or giving open and transparent feedback, we aren't in the market for hidden agendas and elephants in rooms

UNCONVENTIONAL

We want to disrupt the world of digital signage and how physical spaces connect with technology and communicate. We don’t conform to what has already been done and we question the status quo - there can be a better way!

BRAVE

In taking on new challenges that might feel uncomfortable, in our thinking and in having open and honest conversations with each other and our customers.

And all of these should be done with utmost INTEGRITY. We are honest, consistent and fair in everything we do.
