Job Description

A well-known tech company in Scotland is looking for a Senior React Developer to join the team. They are very much one of Edinburgh’s tech success stories and are about to start off another exciting period of growth.

They’re looking for a Senior React Developer to work in a team that is starting off some interesting projects that have been in the pipeline for a while. It’s part of one of their most important teams within the business and will give you the opportunity to really positively affect people’s lives. The role is a brand new one within the team and with that they’re looking for someone that is at a pretty senior level. As a company they’re very product-driven and work with the most up to date engineering principles and standards.

What will I be doing?

You’ll be expected to work predominantly on the Front End of the team’s applications. It’s a really interesting role in that the projects have been in the background for a while and the team have now got the time to focus on them, which is why they’re looking to hire. The team is actually made up of all Back End Developers, so you’ll initially be coming in as the sole Front End Developer. They’ll ideally be looking for someone to help the Back End Developers to upskill in Front End Development, so experience coaching and mentoring would be absolutely ideal.

The have one code base for the product you’d be working on which includes the following tech: JavaScript, TypeScript, React, React Native, Java, Spring, AWS and more. They’re looking for someone that is an expert Front End Developer that has lots of commercial experience with React – the role will initially be focused on JavaScript rather than TypeScript but there will be opportunities to move to this down the line, you would obviously have a lot of ownership of this. The company have a great culture of learning so there will be lots of opportunity to upskill in different areas and move into other teams, which makes it an excellent place for career progression.

As mentioned, this teamwork with Java and AWS, so you’ll be able to upskill in this specifically.

Who am I?

You should be an experienced Senior React Developer that’s excited about working with the most modern technologies. Although they’ve already scaled up as a company, they’ve very much managed to keep the feel of a young tech company on the rise and certainly don’t have boring corporate processes in place.

Who will I be working with?

Their engineering teams’ range in size but normally range from 4-8 Engineers. You’ll also collaborate with Designers, Product people and Testers. The teams work very collaboratively and expect everyone in the team to get involved in technical discussions, so hopefully that is something you’re used to.

Where will I be based and will be doing?

The company are HQ’d in Edinburgh and would be expected to be in the office once or twice per week as a minimum. The rest of the time you can work remotely.

Their package includes a strong salary on offer up to 73,000 (potentially more for exceptional applicants), excellent bonuses, private medical and much more.
