Globechain is looking for a self-motivated, highly skilled senior front end engineer, preferably with B2B marketplace / SaaS / e-commerce experience, interested in driving international expansion, while creating positive social impact.

About us

We are a multi award winning reuse marketplace that connects corporate companies to charities and small businesses to redistribute unneeded items, which creates valuable social impact data (ESG data).

We focus on retail, office, construction and medical sectors and operate globally, with the initial markets being in UK, Spain and the US.

We have won many awards, including Forbes start-up to watch in 2019. Our objective is to become the largest reuse marketplace globally and we are growing our team to achieve this.

Our mission

To reduce global waste and generate social impact.

Our purpose is commercial with a conscience and while we pride ourselves on making a social impact, we are equally focused on revenue generation and building a significant, world-class company.

Globechain’s clients include H&M, B&Q, Radisson Hotels, NHS, Invesco Perpetual, M&S, Simba etc.

To date, we are proud to have saved charities over £2 million and diverted over 5,000 tonnes of waste from landfill. This is just the start of our exciting journey.

About you

We are looking for an experienced front-end developer to help us build our marketplace platform and associated services. We are looking for someone experienced in developing scalable, well-tested, and maintainable JavaScript applications using a reactive framework (React / Vue) and GraphQL / REST, among others. You must be able to translate design and specs into beautiful, usable web applications. You will be part of a collaborative and growing engineering team based in our central London office that sets the direction of Globechain's core technology. If you believe you can make a difference and excel working within a small, ambitious team, we would love to hear from you.

Requirements (Skills and Experience)

You need to be an expert in JavaScript programming and frameworks like React / Vuejs. You are keen to explore new technologies but know when to use the right tool for the job.
