We are looking for a front end developer who possess a keen eye for detail and a passion for collaboration and getting features into production. Someone who wants to learn whilst delivering quality.

You would be working as a frontend developer within one of our product focussed teams, working closely with other frontend developers, backend developers, QA engineers and the team’s product manager to deliver changes and new functionality. You would be involved in planning new work and helping the product manager decide what the team should be working on to achieve the team’s goals.

You would also be working on frontend technical tasks to improve our frontend architecture, improve the performance and usability of the site, make use of new technologies, reduce complexity, write and maintain a growing collection of open source libraries and make development easier.


You’re someone who’s smart, organised, motivated and gets things done. You want to work in a startup environment, because you like the idea of doing a bit of everything and taking ownership of what you work on. You have ideas about everything, and you’re not afraid to argue your point (while respecting everyone else’s of course). You’re constantly thinking “how can we do this better?”.


We use modern JavaScript techniques to implement new and innovative solutions to difficult business problems. We love the power and flexibility React gives us in producing truly cross platform applications. We transpile with babel, meaning you can work with all the new JavaScript hotness whilst supporting older browsers, we type check with flow and build with webpack. We render our applications on the server so users get the best possible perceived performance. We scale with ease using AWS, launch staging environments via our Slack bot and automate JIRA away so you almost don't notice it’s there.


We're an open-source first company who understands the value of working publicly on Github. Our teams are collaborative, product focussed, cross-functional organisations that are empowered to define their own work and organise themselves. We work incrementally and dedicate 20% of our time to refactoring, updating our stack and libraries or experimenting with new technologies. We like to build fast, scalable, easily maintainable applications using whichever tools are right for the job. Most of all, we like to deliver! We believe in manageable chunks of work with continuous integration and delivery to enable multiple production releases per day, so that we’re always making progress.

- Ideally 3+ years experience in a commercial web development environment
- Strong knowledge of JavaScript
- Some experience of the Open Source Community or a desire to get involved
with it.
- Interest or experience in working with frontend frameworks, we use React
- Familiar with CSS including preprocessing (SASS, LESS or Stylus) and/or
CSS in JS solutions
- Familiar with modern web development workflows (Babel, Flow, Webpack)
- A clear desire to work on open source projects.
- A passion for learning and personal development.
- Have a computing or software engineering degree or applicable commercial
engineering experience.
