London, GB

Experienced React + VanillaJS Engineer, FinTech

What’s the Job?

TotallyMoney is looking for a talented front-end developer to join us on a permanent basis to help build, maintain, and take ownership of our live credit score products. The ideal candidate will have proven commercial experience developing SPAs with React, as well as mobile apps using React Native.

Our staff surveys show that we're committed to giving all employees autonomy so you can expect the freedom to prioritise your work. You'll be encouraged to maintain quality and be pushed past your own expectations. You'll be helping to build a fairer credit market so you’ll get to work on real products being used by real customers. You'll be given problems you can get stuck into. You'll use modern workflows and tooling. You'll also get the opportunity to work with AWS infrastructure and get to grips with a containerised cloud solution.

What’s the Environment?

We operate in small, cross-functional teams which are usually comprised of developers, designers and a product owner. We loosely follow Agile processes, with boards, stand-ups and stories etc., however we tend to release continually as opposed to in sprints. We follow good XP practices like TDD, BDD, integration testing, continuous integration and so on.

About You

You’ll have a healthy interest in all kinds of tech, will want to release code every day, and be enthusiastic about adopting new technologies. We develop online tools to help customers find the best credit products available to them, and you’ll be contributing to that from your first day in the office.

In addition to your technical experience you’ll be methodical and analytical in your approach to work. You will want to go fast and will not fear responsibility or failure, have a strong desire to learn, develop every day, and to continue to try out new things. Perhaps the most satisfying thing for you is using your technical skills to make the business stronger.

    • In-depth knowledge and experience with vanilla JavaScript (ES6/7+) and React
    • Mobile app development with React Native
