Front End Engineer


Crowdsurfer is building the world’s richest data analytics service for the multi-billion dollar crowd finance industry. We help organisations understand and react to crowd finance by supplying rich data analytics. We do it because we believe that crowd finance has the power to make the world a better place.

What you’ll be doing
As a Front End Engineer at Crowdsurfer you will specialise in building responsive and elegant web pages that will be used to research and analyse all aspects of this disruptive industry.

We’re looking for someone who is passionate about front end development and loves learning new languages and technologies. We embrace open-source tech and our dashboard only targets evergreen browsers, so you won’t have to worry about polyfilling for IE8.

You have experience in developing user-facing web sites using JavaScript, HTML and CSS / SCSS. Additionally, you have used a javascript framework such as AngularJS, React, Backbone, Ember or similar. You have high attention to detail and thoroughly test your code before it goes into production.

How to impress us
Show us your blog / website / app / github profile / etc. We’re looking for an enthusiastic front-end engineer and would love to see what you’ve built and experimented with.

As part of a small team you will help shape the future of Crowdsurfer. You’ll take responsibility for building a bulletproof user interface and you’ll help us conduct UX tests, making sure that our product is awesome for our clients.

What we offer
Tax efficient share options
Flexibility in what hours you work
Work from home 3 days a week, if you want to
25 holiday days in addition to public holidays
A positive culture of working to a high standard, constant improvement and enjoying what we do
Accountability and autonomy and an opportunity to expand your skillset and make your mark – everyone’s view counts in a small company
We can sponsor a work visa
50:50 male/female team (including management)
We’re a small team so there’s huge potential for fast-paced learning across all areas of the business

Our little perks
We’re a startup so we have little perks that make us a bit special:

We have walls you can write all over in chalk
Informal dress code
Chill out on our beanbag, or the pilates ball, or the fancy chairs outside when you want peace and quiet
We stock the fridge and cupboards with tasty goodies, and all go for lunch together
We like to have fun, from our end-of-year annual (the best anecdotes from the past year), to a steady stream of jokes
We take little company outings to do cool things – last time we shot arrows!

Up to £35,000 (depending on experience)
