About the Role
Engineers in the frontend team are responsible for managing the website, Android and iOS apps. We’re split into two sub teams of website and apps, however everyone can work on both of these projects thanks to the similarity of the syntax of React and React Native.
The two key areas of focus of the team are product and performance. On the product side we are creating new, more advanced features like event visualisation, charts, and trading oriented tools. Whilst on the performance side a betting exchange handles a lot of real time data, so the front-end applications are much more complex than a simple website - we are aiming to simplify and speed up where possible.
- You have a Bachelors in Computer Science or equivalent experience, which has given you a good understanding of software design, data structures, and algorithms
- You have worked on a complex site with a large user base
- You are familiar with React or React Native
- You enjoy collaborating with other engineers, data scientists and non-technical members of staff to bring new product ideas to life
- You have a passion for UI/UX
