Geckoboard is a successful and growing 30-person B2B SaaS startup based in East London. Our elegant, real-time dashboards solve a difficult but valuable problem for thousands of paying subscribers, by taking the complexity out of connecting to their data and making that data simple for anyone to interpret at a glance. As a result, our customers unlock data they didn't know they had, connect people and join up projects, and make better decisions faster.
We have a lot of exciting work ahead and are looking for curious and creative problem solvers to help develop our product and take it to even more customers. You'll be joining a friendly team with great people (see "Who you are") in an environment with empowered developers, flexible working conditions, and a focus on skill development (see "Life at Geckoboard").
Who you are
We are looking for a full-time front-end engineer with experience building single page applications. You'll be passionate about working as part of a team, and learning from others through pair programming and peer review. You'll be comfortable liaising with our product designer on design and implementation. You’ll relish the opportunity to continually improve an existing product through refactoring and the removal/addition of features.
More than anything, we value candidates who are excited about picking up new skills and sharing what they’ve learned with the rest of the team - for example, none of us knew Go or React.js a short time ago, but now both are key parts of our stack. We love people with a keen attention to detail and the willingness to apply it in shaping all aspects of our product.
Required knowledge and experience
- Analytical mind and excellent communication on problem solving
- Some experience building a single-page application
Things that might excite you
- React, Backbone, Ember or Angular
- Front end build tools (e.g. webpack)
- Agile - Scrum / Kanban
- Responsive web development
Life at Geckoboard
We’re constantly striving to ensure that we offer the most encouraging, supportive and efficient environment possible. We want everyone on the team to be empowered to influence our architectural decisions. The whole team is involved in prioritising and evaluating our work and we regularly program in pairs to share knowledge, promote collaboration, and improve our code quality.
We don't just pay lip service to work-life balance, we actively and strongly encourage it. Flexible working hours and the ability to regularly work from home lets you work in a way that fits you and your family. We see our contractual obligation to offer 25 days' paid holiday as a lower bound for everyone in the organisation, not a limit.
We actively contribute to personal and professional development and have a minimum budget allowance to be spent on courses, conferences, and books. We also run fortnightly "innovation days", where everyone has complete freedom to work on anything that interests them, from contributing to open source, to learning a new skill, or improving our internal tools and processes.
