Senior Front End Developer - London

BidFX is a FinTech start-up on a mission to disrupt the foreign exchange market, applying innovative technology to tap FX liquidity, bring market transparency and ensure clients achieve best execution. We are a small but fast growing company with big, global aspirations. We aim to connect the world. We operate successful core trading platform, with direct connectivity to all major banks, fronted by a sophisticated trading user interface. We seek committed people who wish to help us fulfil our vision and share in our success.

As an experienced Front End Developer, you will be well-educated, enthusiastic, organised and adaptable: a quick learner, able to pick up new technology with relative ease. You will have a flair for design, be dedicated to quality and have a passion for modern web development. You will have good interpersonal and communication skills. As a senior developer, you will be expected to mentor other team members.

You will be given the opportunity to work in an agile team environment on a flagship product using a fresh technology stack, including: 

  • React

  • Redux

  • JSX

  • ES6/7

  • RxJS observables

  • Redux-Observable

  • CSS3

  • Socket.io

  • Webpack

  • Yarn

  • OpenFin

  • Google Cloud Platform

We do not expect you to have used all of these but relevant web development experience is important. Perhaps you come from an Angular background and are ready to explore a newer stack. 

Our diverse community of dependable engineers are responsible for solving some of the world’s most interesting technical problems. Quality cuts across every aspect of our being. Together we commit to providing an excellent user experience. Naturally, client service takes priority but we also value our free time and appreciate that you also have commitments to friends and family. So, we cooperate to complete tasks during normal office hours. To minimise defects, we practice pair programming, TTD and continuous integration. We incorporate instrumentation into all of our systems and trust in automation to provide operational efficiency. Our engineers are backed by dedicated first and second level support teams so developers can focus on the creative aspects that add value.

You'll get a generous salary that compares with the best in our sector. A full benefits package covering pension, private health care and dental cover. Our annual bonus scheme rewards performance and gives loyal staff an opportunity to share in our success.

We commit to invest in your future. You will receive training, mentoring and we will help you connect with informed peers. We will even allocate you with a personal training budget for your onward career development.

You’ll get 28 days of annual leave (up to 33 with service), on top of national holidays. Small perks include free breakfast, office lunches, Friday drinks and regular social activities. Our technical team is located in the heart of London theatre land, near Covent Garden. The area is well connected, is pleasant with a cool vibe, has lots of good eateries and plenty of assorted shopping opportunities.

Competitive negotiable salary subject to experience.
