Do you have a passion for quality code and interest in joining a fast-growing start-up set for further explosive growth? Do you thrive in creative environments and have proven ability in leading technical direction? If so, this could be the ideal opportunity for you!

Based in bright contemporary offices in central London, this global content platform has experienced significant growth over the last year, has been named one of the fastest growing businesses to watch and having recently secured Series B funding, is showing no signs of slowing down! Their content currently reaches over 12 million users every month and with an ambitious roadmap ahead, this is just the beginning.

Having recently hired a new VP Engineering to build out 3 brand new technical teams in London, the role of senior frontend developer will be crucial to their success.

  • Strong understanding of Javascript and React.js in a production environment of high availability and large scale.
  • Good understanding of Agile methodologies.
  • Leadership ability.

Sounds good but what's in for you?

  • The chance to join as one of the 1st few senior developers, take on a key role and become a vital figure in a well backed, tech led and creative start-up that has attracted talent from the likes of Google, Facebook, ITV.
  • You'll work on complex problems daily and look to solve the challenge of maintaining quality while scaling content and using data to drive stories.
  • Great office, relaxed and fun culture + other company perks.
