job description - Full Stack JavaScript Engineer

  • Be an integral and trusted member of the Tech team
  • Be a mentor and pair-code with other team members regularly
  • Make an impactful contribution, ask great questions, and execute high-quality work
  • Take responsibility for the state of the code you produce and inherit
  • Find and propose ways our codebase, conventions, and ways of working could be improved
  • Researching and staying abreast of key technical developments, industry trends, and innovations

What would the ideal candidate be great at?

  • Technical acumen: evolving our iOS and Android applications, and some lightweight backend services using React Native, Redux, Redux-Saga, Node.JS, Next.JS, and Jest (with some Objective C/Swift and Java/Kotlin as required)
  • Technical competence: love coding, am able to learn new paradigms quickly, and look to continuously improve and find better ways of doing things
  • Excellent critical judgment: able to make good decisions, be trusted, respected, and dependable, be proactive and responsive, ask the right questions, raise flags at the right time, able to prioritize and plan your tasks
  • Mindfulness: be considerate of the implications of your work, really care about what you are doing and the impact of your contribution
  • Teamwork and team spirit: we are all contributing to the same platforms, so you need to not only be a great individual contributor but be more motivated by the achievements of the whole team - we only win if the team wins, see the impact of your work and positively influence and help the work of others
  • Getting up to the front of the bus: get stuck in, execute, generate ideas, have an impact, don’t just sit back and be a passenger


Qualifications and experience

  • 4-6+ years of professional experience in programming
  • 2+ years experience in React Native / React Web development
  • 1+ year experience with Node backend (Express, Nest.js, or similar)

  • Strong appreciation for UI/UX standards and a passion for developing beautiful interfaces
  • Knowledge of professional software engineering practices and best practices for the full software development life cycle, including coding standards, code reviews, source control management, build processes, testing, and operations

Experience that is nice to have (but we’ll trade off if everything else fits)
