Job Description

Lead Full Stack Engineer - React / Node / TypeScript - Up to £100k

The Role

I’m currently working with a genuinely cutting-edge software business who are building out a live trading platform that is used by some of the biggest businesses across the world. You will be joining their engineering team which currently stands at 20, to help build out multiple features & APIs for their data-driven platform.

We are looking for someone who has extensive experience working across the JavaScript stack. Their stack uses React & TypeScript across the frontend with Node.js used across the backend as well as for the APIs. They are happy to consider people who are more focused towards either side of this, as long as you have some form of experience in a Full Stack capacity. Most importantly – you need to be driven & the type of person who will focus on solving a problem until it’s done.

You will be working within their Apps team & will be the most senior member of one of their squads. Although you will remain 80/90% hands-on throughout this role, you will be expected to mentor & lead the more junior members of the team. Initially, you'll be running a team of four developers so previous managerial experience is key. 


The company have a real USP within the market - where their cutting edge software provides real time information to high end traders across the globe. The nature of their business means that developers will be building a product that handles significant amounts of data. Having been founded just over four years ago, the company have significant funding behind them & are looking to build out at least another two engineering squads this year.

The business are operating remotely & are happy to continue doing so indefinitely. You will need to be based in the UK in order to go to the occasional team meeting in London. 


You must have experience in these skills to be considered for the role:


  • React
  • Node.js
  • TypeScript
  • Experience leading small development teams


  • Rest APIs
  • Docker
  • ElasticSearch
  • STEM degree or equivalent


As well of a salary of up to £100,000, this company offers a fantastic benefits package which currently consists of equity options, 25 days holiday, equipment budget, training budget and much more!

Please send a copy of your most up to date CV to to be considered.
