Kalo is a SaaS company providing a one-stop solution for companies to manage their freelance workers – through onboarding, task management, and payment. We serve tens of thousands of users, processing millions of dollars in payments, working with global brands, and this is only the beginning. We need help with our front-end application engineering and architecture as we look to improve our existing offerings and create new experiences and tools for our users.

We are looking to improve:

* the performance of our user experience - on both the UI and the browser
* our mobile experience
* our testing pyramid - we have continuous delivery to production so like to know that with that great power we have enough safety checks to ensure that we can celebrate our releases
* the technology we use - if we’re not using the right tech stack we’re very keen to understand what else we could be using and why

Currently, our application talks to our internal APIs and is built with React with redux, immutableJS, flow, jest and emotion as its core libraries. In the future, we’re hoping to launch improved mobile functionality and a platform that can be internationalised as we work on expanding our existing user base around the globe.

Here’s what you will bring:

* strong experience in FE engineering and architecture - on greenfield and existing software
* an understanding and appreciation of the work of our API engineers to create a deployment and developer experience that works for everyone
* experience or a desire to coach the FE engineering teams in an Agile/Lean/Continuous Delivery environment
* ability to work in a variety of client settings and in a team-oriented, collaborative environment with people ranging from the CTO to our product team
* an understanding of how FE applications can be deployed in a CI and cloud-based environment
* mentoring and upskilling other engineers in the team

What we’re offering:

* generous salary (range between £70k to £100k)
* meaningful equity packages
* relaxed working environment - we have an office with communal lunches provided, drinks, snacks and regular celebratory cakes but we appreciate that at times that’s not the place where you’ll do your best work. When this happens we offer ample opportunity to work at your own happy place. We have a number of full time and part time remote workers and are always open to discussing what works best for our team.
* an open and supportive engineering culture - all views are considered, all team members have opportunities to have their voices heard and anything that is clearly not working for us we look at ways to improve (or just remove) to ensure we spend our time working on the problems that provide the most value to the company
* monthly wellness grant
* contribution based pension

What's next?

We have a 3 stage interview process consisting of a phone interview, code review/pairing exercise and a face to face with one of our engineering managers and our CTO but everything starts off with a chat. If you want to apply now use the buttons here to get your CV in our system and you'll be hearing from someone on the team soon.

If you have any more questions you would like to go over before applying then please do drop us a line at hiring-engineers@kalohq.com.
