Job Description

Mid to Senior level Frontend React Developer

London office 1-2 days per week

Salary circa £50-60k


Our client is an Edtech that is working hard to change the learning space. With a track record of 5 years in the tutoring industry, they are now building upon this by creating the classroom of the future. Their MVP is a platform for educators to consolidate all tools needed. They have recently been accepted on to an accelerator programme and so are now looking to scale. 

You will be joining a CEO, CTO, COO, product designer, admin and tech intern. They are hugely invested in personal growth and potential and will seek to continually strive to develop the team:

The Role

We are looking for a frontend developer to help accelerate the build of the MVP:

● Create a beautiful and functional platform using React.js based on customer needs
● Provide continuous feedback on wireframes and designs
● Help craft the vision for the company through R&D
● Help mentor intern, graduate and junior developers when hired
● Inject energy and enthusiasm into a friendly and progressive team
● Help shape the future of a growing company. 

The Stack

They are using an extremely modern tech stack centered around Blitz JS. This is a framework which combines NextJS and Prisma ORM into a single, rails-like, full-stack project. This allows them to use Prisma to auto generate the majority of the backend, so they can focus on providing a high quality look and feel.

Other tools they use are:
● Typescript
● PostgreSQL
● GraphQL
● AWS + Vercel
● Jest + React Testing Library
● Cypress

The Requirements

We want somebody who shows great passion, potential and a willingness to learn and grow with the team and company. They don't mind if you have a degree or are self-taught, have 10 years or
2 years of experience. The only technical requirement is that you have enough React.js knowledge to be able to produce high quality clean code on a day-to-day basis without much support.

The Benefits
We know that developers have the pick of the litter when it comes to job hunting and it is often hard to choose who to apply to, so here are a few reasons why the team love working there:

● The opportunity to make your mark on a growing company. 
● Autonomy to work on what you think is most important, in the way that you think is best.
● Get exposure to all aspects of the business. 
● Amazing growth and personal development opportunities. 
● Private health insurance.
