We’re looking for an experienced Frontend developer to join one of our small, multi-disciplinary product teams tackling a profound human challenge – redefining the way the world deals with death.
Within 24 months of launching Farewill we’ve grown to lead our industry, becoming the biggest (and favourite) will-writer in the UK – building a tight-knit, multidisciplinary team of 18 along the way.
We’re proudly backed and supported by some of the best investors and entrepreneurs in Europe, from the founders of Transferwise and Zoopla, to Kindred Capital, JamJar, and SAATCHiNVEST.
As part of the development team at Farewill, you’ll be instrumental in bringing the team’s ideas and vision to fruition – giving us a leading edge in terms of product and user experience. Along with the other developers Helena, Emily and Tom (CTO), you’ll be responsible for developing new features and products, keeping our site up, fixing bugs and ensuring our codebase easy to develop. You’ll also collaborate across the wider team to develop internal tooling and help with their projects.
Our site is currently comprised of a small number of Node.js services covering: universally rendering our React UI, our API business logic and PDF rendering. We also have a number of other small, custom internal services (e.g. Slack bot, Trello API integrations, an ETL pipeline and customer support tools) that help the rest of the team do their jobs effectively.
You’ve worked in multi-disciplinary product teams and alongside other developers and designers; ideally this would be in the form of another digital product at scale. You’re open to sharing knowledge and improving our standards and team processes, be it through pairing/group programming, code review or other methods.
