Front-end Developer

Job Category: Engineering
Job Type: Full Time
Job Location: London

We are looking for two experienced Front End Developers to join our London based Engineering Team on a permanent basis.

About us

MyKindaFuture is an award-winning social business, founded in 2011 to address the fundamental problem that many people, especially those from disadvantaged backgrounds, lack the support, skills, confidence and networks to secure fulfilling, long-term employment. We are based in the Southbank Technopark, alongside other tech start-ups, in the vibrant Elephant and Castle, with its excellent transport links and Mercato Metropolitano food market.

It’s an exciting time to join the Engineering team at MyKindaFuture as we work towards the release of a new version of Connectr, an innovative platform supporting our purpose to give “every person equal power and opportunity to shape their future”. Connectr is successfully enabling big brands to improve their diversity and onboard top talent, and over the next 12 months we have ambitious plans to increase our impact and extend our reach, using a Product based approach and data science to put the user at the heart of every release.

What you’ll be doing

As our Front End Developer, you’ll take pride in ensuring Connectr looks and feels great offering our users a brilliant online experience. Working with some awesome tech – including modern JavaScript, React, Apollo and GraphQL – you’ll be joining us as we grow the team and adopt new ways of working to drive innovation. We will expect you to be an excellent collaborator, using your expertise to understand and solve user problems, challenge existing thinking and help others on the team do the same. We are a friendly and supportive team and sharing knowledge, through peer reviews and pairing, will be key to our success.

What we’ll need from you

It goes without saying that you’re an experienced developer with a flair for creating stand out responsive user experiences. Naturally, we’ll need you to have great JavaScript, React, CSS/SASS and HTML5 skills, and we’ll need you to be familiar with or have a desire to learn Apollo & GraphQL and JavaScript testing frameworks. We are always impressed by an eagerness to learn and a proactive attitude, and would be keen to explore your projects, Github activity and contributions.
