Senior / Lead Software Engineer (Front end focus) | React, TypeScript | Consultancy | Single Account Focus | Full Autonomy and Flexibility | Work in a Team of People with Strong Engineering Mindsets and Natural Problem Solvers | Flexible work hours and work days | £60,000 - £80,000
Manhattan Partners are exclusively partnered with one of the worlds more exciting scaleup consultancies. They don’t work on simple MVP or maintenance projects, they get to the core of incredibly complex and challenging projects for their enterprise clients.
A crucial detail for this role is that you won’t be pulled in all directions on multiple clients, you will be working on one account (who we can’t disclose here due to NDA!) on a project spanning multiple years.
The founders have an incredibly impressive technical background and want excellent technical practices at the core of their company. Both of them have founded and grown multiple successful startups, co-founded one of the largest tech meetup groups in Europe, contribute to open source projects and won numerous hackathons.
In the 5 years the company has been running, not one person has handed in their notice.
They work fully remotely in distributed teams, and meet up in a central location twice a year.
They have a blame-free culture built on true trust and autonomy.
Choose how you work best, for example if you want to work a 4 day compressed work week, if you want to take Friday off and work on Sunday, if you want to work 2pm-10pm. As long as you participate in stand-ups, they don’t care how you get your work done.
There’s no micromanagement, internal politics or hierarchy.
"They're the kind of people who would value if you spent the time to properly research a problem to create a good solution instead of rushing to meet arbitrary deadlines"
The basis of their technical strategy is formed around no chaos and stress free releases.
The Role and Projects:
We are looking for a highly experienced Software Engineer to join their team focusing on their key account.
The key part of your role is building and testing large scale React SPA’s using fully modernised and efficient processes.
You will be collaboratively with talented individuals, part of one the most productive working cultures in Europe.
Core skills (skills you would ideally have strong experience with):
React (if you have a few years experience with another modern framework like Vue or SvelteJS then more recent experience with React that’s absolutely fine.)
React State Management with Redux-Saga or Hooks
Strong testing experience. You will be doing a variety of tests from: unit tests, TDD, Integration Testing, Automation Testing etc.
The rest of the stack :
AWS (or other cloud experience beneficial but they do have DevOps engineers)
Amazon Quantum Ledger Database
You don't need experience with any of these, the rest of the engineers are quite back end focussed but just so you're aware.
Day to Day Responsibilities
Working as one of the leading people in a small scrum team and taking ownership of the front end.
Building large-scale React-based SPA's
Optimisation of processes.
Work in a truly agile way, closely collaborating with the client in a productive and transparent way.
Researching new technologies and tools.
Write reliable, well tested and modular code.
Contribute to whiteboard sessions with feedback, new ideas and issues.
Define the architecture.
Support your team members through peer reviews
The Interview Process
The interview process will be in 2 stages :
A meeting with the 2 founders of the company with a variety of conversations around your experience, your front end / full stack experience, your software engineering capability and culture fit.
A meeting with the end client. This interview will be less technical and more around how you would fit into their project and your ways of cracking problems.
Salary and Benefits
We are looking for people in the range of £60-80K but there will be flexibility for the right person.
Benefits include :
Private healthcare and pension
Fully remote working
Bi-annual get togethers at a central location
Flexible work days
Generous training budget you can spend on new courses, travelling to global conferences etc
A high spec mac plus expense anything needed to have an awesome WFH setup.
Generous 8% pension contribution
