Stuff here is getting exciting, so as we scale and grow into Europe we now need someone to lead our FED team and make sure we continue to rollout world-firsts – on time and on target. It goes without saying that you’re an accomplished FED, as you’ll be leading by example, but you will also have come from a product-led background and with a good head for commercial needs and how we can improve things. Production and delivery are only part of the role as you grow your team and take ownership of the product as we expands into new channels and markets.

Because Google and Facebook might not be offering you enough of a challenge...

You

Ideally you’ll have experience with a recognised brand delivering customer-led experiences on Messenger, WhatsApp or chat-bots, as well as a head for the architecture, UX and UI. This really isn’t a job for mid-weight web developers who have been building websites – you’ll be looking at this alongside product engineering roles for the biggest tech companies out there, and you’ll be expecting to be treated like a strategic part of the team who can help us expand into Europe and beyond.

Core duties

Currently our biggest bottleneck is Front-End production, so you'll hit the ground running, but as you grow your team you will be responsible for translating the commercial needs of the company and clients into the product we deliver. This will involve direct liaison with our partners at Facebook and WhatsApp, as well as client meetings and European travel as we scale.

You'll understand the importance of communication and stakeholder management just as well as you understand the tech - part developer, part solution designer, our next big step is waiting for you to lead it.

Vital experience

Some techie stuff can't be avoided, but there won't be anything here that frightens you! We ask this of all of our Front End Developers, so you'll need to be well versed in:

• Devloping for messaging - Messenger, WhatsApp or chat-bots
• Advanced JavaScript and ES6+ - Angular orReact
• Advanced HTML5 and SCSS, with excellent attention to detail
• Knowledge of AWS Lambda, CloudWatch and CodeBuild
• Experience with AWS CLI and SDKs
• Working with, and designing, RESTful APIs
• Experience writing unit tests to build robust code (we use Jasmine &Jest)
