Contract - Senior Front End Engineer (React)

Senior Front End Engineer (ES6, React)

Do you want to work on a completely greenfield project, building a new start-up that could potentially disrupt the way we travel? 

BCG Digital Ventures (part of Boston Consulting Group) invents, invests in and incubates start-ups in partnerships with corporate companies. We are incubating a start-up over the next few months and will be looking for experienced engineers to join us, working on the design and development of the new product under the direction of the Venture CTO.


What will you be doing?

Collaborating with a team of engineers and designers across the venture team to ensure we deliver an empowering user experience
Communicating ideas across the cross-functional team in an effective manner
Sharing technical solutions and product ideas through design reviews, pair programming, code reviews and discussions
Utilising a proactive and responsive approach to problem solving
Implementing highly scalable and maintainable frontend services, and working with business specialists and visual designers to design optimal solutions
Working with ES6, React, HTML, React Native and more

What are we looking for?

Sustained experience in professional software development using JavaScript and React
An appreciation for design, with a focus on building elegant applications that are pleasing to the eye
Strong analytical and debugging skills
Provisioning and deployment in cloud environments
A preference for working with cross-disciplinary teams to introduce and enhance behaviour and test-driven approaches, resulting in clean, elegant code and application architectures
Experience of working with team members to encourage the writing of clean, elegant code using test-first approaches
A background working in teams using Agile approaches

Building great software at web scale requires a multidisciplinary approach to engineering. It is far more important to be able to reason intelligently about complex problems, and apply experience to new domains than it is to know specifics about the latest technology buzzword. 

We do not expect engineers to be experts in all languages, but you should be able to write code in several core development languages, have worked with the important frameworks and tools in a variety of platforms, and be willing to use your knowledge and experience in new domains.

BCG Digital Ventures is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
