What you will be doing?

Our engineers play a crucial role in our product experience. Not only you will work directly on delivering & maintaining features for our customer base, but you will also have a long-standing impact on our engineering strategy, codebase and developer experience.

You’ll be working on software that our customers interact with every day, collaborating with designers, product managers, other engineers and the wider business to create a great product experience and continuously ship value to our users. We’ve got many features coming and we’re looking for someone who loves delivering friendly user interfaces.

You’ll have the freedom to work across our entire tech stack as you wish, with the focus of this role being on the user interface of our web application. With the support of the engineering team, you’ll lead projects and guide and mentor junior and mid-weights engineers.
