Role Intro

We are looking for an experienced Senior Front End Engineer to contribute significantly to the architecture and visual components of a modern, React-based, web stack.

Our client is currently using React in the development of an emerging, greenfield, product, as well as modernising an existing in-production, server-rendered, application. As their existing products have grown significantly, the senior engineer would be responsible for increasing the reliability and scalability of a web-based application.

Additionally, they are actively developing new products and are seeking to develop a modern, rigorous, and sustainable approach to development.

Our client is a rapidly growing VC-backed Data Engineering company based in Manchester.

The company has taken the market by storm and currently works with large organisations worldwide in financial services, telecommunications, pharma and government, enabling them to get the most out of data without compromising on privacy and security.

As they pioneer this new enterprise software category of Privacy Engineering, you'll serve this emerging business need and address a social issue of growing importance.

Due to growth, we are looking for a talented Front End Engineer, who loves immersing themselves in complex problems. You will be building innovative solutions using the latest technologies to solve one of the most important problems of the big data age.
