JavaScript Developer (Node.js)


Calling all JavaScript engineers with a focus on and passion for Node.js! Do you want to work for a company who are at the forefront of every successful company’s agenda?

The client

Based in central London and picking up some major momentum, media attention and public awareness, the company are looking to tackle the problem of workplace misconduct. They’ve created an application that allows employees to report through to the end user (nominally a member of HR), who is able to view complaints through a SaaS platform. This allows them to use data analytics to pinpoint where the problem is and how they can address it. they work a lot with logs, alerts and security as the data is highly encrypted for each client on the platform.

The role

A few of their recent projects include:

  • A cross-platform mobile application with secure cryptography modules (React Native).
  • A backend API to tie everything together (NodeJS, run on AWS).
  • A web-frontend to allow customers to manage their own users (React).

Having recently secured yet another round of funding they’re looking for a developer to join them who has solid engineering experience with Node.JS (at least a couple of years, though ideally more), as well as having developed applications on AWS –You’ll also be contributing in TypeScript as well as with React (though if you’ve not worked with this one before, they’ll get you up to speed).

The candidate

Key technologies needed: JavaScript, Node.js, AWS. Any FE/React experience would be a bonus!

They’re very culture focussed and in turn, are looking for someone who is collaborative and will fit straight in with the team. A few of the key traits they’re ideally going for are:

  • Problem solving and hunger – energy, ambition and attitude are a big part of their ethos. They like to ‘show and tell,’ so you’ll always be teaching and learning new things.
  • Have a strong enthusiasm for their core values.
  • Strong communication skills – they’re very collaborative and like to bounce ideas off each other.
  • Previous experience working in an Agile environment (they’re big, big fans).

Skills wise, on top of the key techs mentioned above, any of the following would be great:

  • Have a strong knowledge of JavaScript and its associated ecosystems.
  • Have a passion for cryptography and ZKP protocols, as well as an understanding of networking concepts (think load balancers, routers etc.).
  • Any DevOps experience would be a HUGE bonus too.
