ABOUT FINEMATTER

Finematter is a fashion-tech start-up, on a mission to help creative entrepreneurs in the jewellery industry scale beyond one store. Our ambition is to create the leading online destination for high-end fashion jewellery, redefining the jewellery category as we know it. We want to do for jewellery what Net-a-porter did for fashion 20 years ago.

 

With offices in London and Copenhagen, Finematter has its roots in Scandinavian design with a global outlook. We’ve just raised a EUR 1.7 million Seed Round to turbo-charge the business and start scaling, fast.

 

We have the ambition to build a highly purposeful company, for our partners, employees, and our customers, and to run a business steered by the following four goals:

  1. Empower outstanding creative entrepreneurs – jewellery designers are a rare breed of skilled crafts(wo)men and incredible creative talent, and we want to empower them to build thriving businesses
  2. Offer products that are deeply meaningful – jewellery is not just a fashion accessory, but a part of a person’s life history. We want to give it the online presentation and experience it deserves, not just sell it the same way as a t-shirt
  3. Run an entirely sustainable business – we want to contribute to the transition to a sustainable fashion industry, by being a platform for sustainable purchasing, knowledge sharing and support for the entire jewellery sector
  4. Build a 2.0 workplace – we’re building a business because it’s fun, and we want to have fun with it!

 

THE OPPORTUNITY

Finematter.com is looking for a Senior Frontend Engineer to lay the foundation for and build our frontend systems that will be critical for the business and for realising our goal of becoming the leading destination for jewellery on the internet.

 

We are looking for a seasoned engineer who has broad experience in frontend technologies and how they can be effectively and efficiently applied to building frontend applications from the ground up. We expect you to have a clear vision for the full frontend stack from UI frameworks and CSS over tooling and testing to deployment and maintenance.

 

You should have a clear eye for details and for creating a best-in-class user experience for not only our customers but also our suppliers and internal stakeholders. You must be able to work closely with UI/UX designers to find the best solutions and be able to bring the ideas to life.

 

You will join as one of the first employees in the tech organization and one of the first 10 people to join the business, and you will therefore have the opportunity to, but also be expected to, have a deep influence on the direction of the tech team and the wider business. You will also be expected to be able to work effectively individually with limited oversight and guidance.

 

Primary areas of responsibility:

  • Design and build our frontend platforms including the e-commerce platform, supplier platform and internal tools.
  • Support in testing, maintaining and running the staging and production systems to ensure high performance and availability.
  • Work with the CTO and the rest of the engineering team to set the overall technical direction for Finematter.
  • Collaborate with product owners and designers to define and design the features of the platform.
  • Help define and shape the product development process at Finematter
  • Attract and support in hiring future engineers to join the company.

 

Our tech stack (so far):

  • Javascript and Typescript form the foundation across both frontend and backend systems. We believe there is great value in a common language across the stack for smaller organizations.
  • React, Sass and Gatsby are used in our e-commerce shop.
  • Backend in NestJS using TypeORM and GraphQL.
  • Hosted on Netlify (frontend) and Heroku (backend).
