The Role

You will primarily be working on the user interface that drives our transaction monitoring product. This platform allows our users to both investigate, review, and remediate alerts that are triggered by our rules engine. Our platform is a full-featured single page application and includes other features such as metrics and reporting visualization, user management, and custom workflows. To do this, you’ll need to work out clear and concise ways of presenting complex data to the users of our software.

  • You’ll be working closely with product owners, back-end engineers, designers and UX, both in cross-functional teams and also across the business as a whole.
  • What does success look like In your first 6 months?

You have delivered new features and improvements on time with outstanding quality.  You’ve been a collaborative and enthusiastic team member, working with people across the team and beyond.

You have gained a deep understanding of the users, business and technology beyond the project. You are always mindful of quality attributes like maintainability, performance, security, scalability, usability and testability. As a result, you have successfully contributed code and ideas to the UI architecture.

Your designs and implementation are clean, elegant, and easily understood by other team members. You add complexity where it is needed, but no more than what is required.

You are continuously researching tools, technologies and practices. You are able to distinguish between what is hype and what is valuable, and you have solid arguments in favour of your proposals.

You can guide the team towards the established goals. Your colleagues have come to value your technical advice, and you are able to identify areas that need improving and drive those improvements.


We value those who take initiative and pride in their work and contribute to an informal working environment. You will be able to deliver on the points covered above, taking into account the following:

  • Extensive experience working with Javascript as a language.
  • Solid understanding of frontend frameworks including experience using React and Angular.
  • A sound understanding of Javascript application best practices which include performance and memory debugging, state management, data normalization, immutability, etc.
  • The ability to build a client-side application to enterprise grade with security and accessibility in mind.
  • Most likely a degree in Computer Science, Software Engineering, Mathematics, or other numerate field - but we will consider applicants with other education backgrounds who have relevant experience.
  • Experience with modern build tools such as Webpack, Parcel, or Rollup.
  • Experience in and proficiency with Typescript.
  • Advocate for composable and declarative application architectures and who also is aware of the pros and cons of the various programming paradigms supported by Javascript.
