Full description

What you'll be doing

  • Developing our consumer-facing and internal products as part of a small product team.
  • Working across our backend and frontend.
  • Developing and maintaining our accessibility-first design system from the ground up.
  • Collaborating with our designer on user research, and working with other members of the team to understand their needs for internal tools.
  • Collaborating on the development of our design / engineering / product team processes.
  • We're a small company and it's often all hands on deck. There's a good chance you'll occasionally be helping with things beyond your role like customer support.

What we're looking for

An engineer who has some or all of the following:

  • Significant experience working on consumer-facing products.
  • Great communication skills; the ability to breakdown problems, explain work, and relay information in ways that help everyone move forward with a shared understanding.
  • Deep understanding of and experience working with Javascript. We work with Typescript and it's great if you already have experience with it, but it's not required.
  • Proficiency with GraphQL, Node.js, and relational databases.
  • Experience working with modern frontend frameworks and patterns. We use Vue.js, but it's fine if you've never used it.
  • Strong understanding of security best practices.
  • A passion for treating internal tools with the same respect and effort as consumer-facing products.
  • An eagerness to be actively involved in the whole product development process, not just your domain. We need everyone to think and problem solve like product managers.
  • Familiarity with accessibility best practices, and an accessibility-first mindset.
  • Empathy for all stakeholders in challenging engineering problems.
  • A sustainable engineering mindset - decisions made with the long-term in mind.
  • Attention to detail and a desire to raise the bar.
  • A passion for company culture and the conviction to contribute to it.
  • At this time we can only offer roles to people who have the right to live and work in the UK.
