Senior Front End Developer
£65-75k plus excellent benefits
Fullstack London is currently on the lookout for a self-starting React Developer on behalf of a new and exciting fintech based in London.
Developing a state-of-the-art cloud-based investment intelligence platform, the successful candidate will play a critical role in bringing the platform to market and helping it scale in terms of features, functionality, engagement and users. Initially this will be extending a React web application and a React Native mobile app but after that, the roadmap is pretty extensive and wide-ranging. The existing codebase is extremely complex and a mix of React, Typescript and Redux so experience of these is important.
The successful React Developer will have to be a self-starter. You'll be given a lot of responsibility early that will materially impact the success of the company, so candidates need to be people who have a reputation for productivity and quality. You should be a really strong Front End developer, excited by the prospect of bringing an exciting FinTech startup to market. They're currently with Beta customers so there is a great opportunity to make a big impact and influence how Front End development is done. This is a company with a really exciting roadmap - think pluggable robo-advisers, platform extensibility, Machine Learning and mass-market adoption.
The current tech stack is React/React Native with Redux and Typescript on top of Kotlin (JVM)/Spring, PostgreSQL running in K8s on AWS. You will have to feel confident of being able to pick up an existing codebase and quickly become an SME for one or more aspects of it.
