Senior Frontend Engineer, Business Products

Job description

At FairFX, we have bold ambitions for the future of money management and clear ideas about how we can help our customers get more out of their money. 

Having a diverse team helps us build better products

We come from a variety of backgrounds and passionately believe that bringing different perspectives together helps us understand what our customers need. We ahave people with technical degrees, non-graduates, people at the start of their careers as well as highly experienced team members. For lots of us this is the first time we have worked in financial services. We're united by one thing - we're passionate about building great products.

We work in small, cross functional squads - forming part of a fun, hardworking and exceptionally supportive team of around 60 engineers. We’re expanding our engineering capabilities rapidly, and we face many interesting challenges as we grow - so there are plenty of opportunities for growth and progression.

The Business Products team

We build powerful, yet simple to use products to help businesses get control, transparency and cost savings through a corporate prepaid card and online account to manage employee expenses at home and abroad.  


We’re looking for Frontend Developers to help us bring a groundbreaking new product to market and re-platforming our core platform onto a modern application stack (PostgreSQL, Express, React, Node.js) built on top of Lambda serverless and Fargate. 

You’re the sort of person who enjoys taking an active role in planning, assisting QA's and product owners, and you have the ability to thrive under pressure and find creative solutions to complex technical problems. You are communicative and social, able to discuss your work with people of varying levels of technical understanding and get excited by the buzz of delivering products that customers love using.

Key skills and experience:

(we think you’ll have experience with most of these technologies/tools/practices below, although they are a starting point and by no means all must-haves)

  • Building optimised, scalable modular websites using React/Redux.
  • ES6.
  • HTML, CSS3, CSS Modules, Styled Components
  • CI tools, e.g. CircleCI.
  • AWS.
  • Agile practices.
  • Software engineering practices like BDD, TDD, Pair Programming etc.
  • Learning from and passing knowledge to like-minded and talented colleagues. 

Extra awesome:

  • Experience with GraphQL using Apollo
  • Knowledge of Node.js microservices
  • React Native (or an interest in finding out more).
  • GIT workflow.

We believe in inclusive working practices, so if you are looking for part-time or flexible work we’ll facilitate this wherever possible - whether to help you meet other commitments or to help you strike a great work-life balance.

Our interview process typically consists of an initial phone screen, and a 90 minute interview. We usually do a very simple coding task, but there are no trick questions.

This role offers...

  • A competitive salary, benchmarked against a peer group of the most innovative fintech companies in London.
  • 25 days holiday per year + your birthday off.
  • Tons of opportunities for progression and development.
  • Great location next to the thames (Cannon Street/Bank).
  • Free onsite Nuffield Health gym & pool.
