  • We are looking for an exceptional engineer to join our team to lead development on our front-end, which is an SPA built using Typescript + React + Blueprint.js.

    Ideally, you should have over a year's experience using Typescript, in addition a modern framework such as React/Angular/Vue.js, and be excited by the prospect of building web apps that present complex ideas to users in a simple and intuitive manner. This is an ambitious project which includes interesting technical challenges, such as working with large multi-million row datasets in the browser, and parsing arrow files in the browser.

    This will primarily involve work on the frontend, but -- depending on your experience -- this could also could include some backend Python/Django work including interfacing and developing our REST endpoints to make them compatible with front-end requirements.

    You should like the idea of releasing to real customers regularly, and prioritise getting a great product into users’ hands for feedback and iteration. You will be working with a talented team of domain experts, data scientists, and backend engineers, and will have extensive scope to build and architect the front-end yourself, and grow the team in the future.
