Senior Node.js Engineer | Remote | Node.js | TypeScript | Express | MongoDB | PostgreSQL | £80,000 - £100,000

Rated 4.9 / 5 based on 10,954 reviews on Trustpilot this fast-growing company backed by some of the most exceptional investors in Europe including founders of Zoopla, JamJar and Kindred are looking to hire a Senior Node.js Engineer skilled with Node.js and with a strong server-side JavaScript development experience.

The business has gone from 50 to 140 people in the past 2 years, grown revenue 800%, won multiple National Awards, raised over £350m for charity and in 2022 featured in the UK's 100 Best mid-sized companies to work for.

You will be offered a competitive salary and share stock options, 28 days of annual leave plus bank holidays. Flexible working where you choose when you start & end your day, how many hours per week you work and how often you come into the office. Everyone in the business is given a personal development budget of 3 days and £1000 per year.

In return you will be a Senior Node.js Engineer who is able to develop the backend of their internal and external digital products. As well as being able to take on the technical leadership of some of the projects in the team

The current applications are written in ES6 JavaScript and TypeScript. For the backend they run on Node, serving Express and GraphQLAPIs. They use PostgreSQL and MongoDB as the primary data stores, with Redis for their worker queues and session storage. Most new development is in PostgreSQL and the plan is to gradually migrate away from MongoDB.

Codebases use ESLint, Prettier, Percy, Cypress, Mocha and Jest to automate testing.

And finally they push to GitHub, test on CircleCI and deploy (continuously) to Heroku.

Interview process is one of the smoothest out there with 2 stages via video and no tech test required.

Having recently secured £20m Series B funding there couldn't be a better time to join, if you would like to know more about the company or role please don't hesitate to apply and we can have a chat.
