Full Time
We are leading hiring for a FinTech start-up about to secure one of the biggest seed funding rounds in London this year. Led by a senior team with a background scaling multiple tech start-ups and a proven MVP, they are looking for a Lead Front End Engineer to scale the product out to thousands of customers in the waiting.

The Lead Front End Engineer will report directly to the CTO and work closely with the lead backend engineer, and two full stack developers, to deliver on an aggressive pipeline of new features. You will be far more than just a hands-on engineer, dealing directly with various stakeholders to translate ideas into an achievable reality.

Whilst the web app is built in React+Redux, they are not hung up on specific tools and frameworks, so we are keen to speak to anyone with a background building complex single page applications for the web and a desire to be challenged to progress their career quickly.

What they need from you:

Advanced knowledge of JavaScript (ES6+)
Experience creating complex single page applications
Fluent in modern approaches to CSS (SASS/LESS via BEM etc.)
Passion for solving problems that add value to end users
Driven to succeed in your own career, and be part of something special

The team is small and they move quickly with as lightweight an agile set-up as possible, freeing you from entrenched process to get things done. You'll be expected to take the initiative on your own work, extending to things likes editing an API endpoint (in Node) to get a feature completed, as well as be a trusted advisor to the business on what features are achievable, how fast they can be implemented and the complexities behind doing so.

Long term, this is a chance to be responsible for an entire product, including the technology used to deliver it, as well as growing a team around you. You may still be focused on being the best engineer you can be or already have you eye on a future technical management role, either way, the quality of engineers and senior management team here will support, and challenge you, to have the best chance of hitting, or exceeding, those goals.
