Front End Developers - This one is different.

Why is it different? -  OK, cut to the chase: what is this all about? 

Firstly, it’s about a direct to consumer brand, building out a revolutionary offer. It’s a tech start up with enormous worldwide potential with a specific demographic and a seemingly everyday health product.  Secondly, you’ll be working with the founders of the company, people from big name Silicon Valley firms.  Thirdly, you’ll be our first Front End Developer, charged with setting the direction and bringing our vision to life. Fourthly (the money shot), the salary is £competitive, but, more importantly, significant equity options, with the potential, if you commit to the long-term, to bring life-changing income.

Sounds good so far: what will I actually be doing?

You’ll be working with the founders and product designer to craft beautiful, responsive front-end experiences that work across devices, using HTML, CSS, JS and frameworks like React.  More specifically, you’ll be: creating systems and components that allow beautiful, and consistent designs to be built quickly; building an intuitive sign-up flow that captures sensitive customer data, including selfies; working with the back-end team on the design and implementation of the back-end systems and services to support the front end: championing best practices to deliver well-tested software that always delivers; contributing to the ongoing, user-centric design of the customer experience, implementing systems for analytics; and experimentation (A/B testing) to enable effective decision-making.

And what do I need to be?

An undiscovered star; possibly hiding your light under a bushel at, say, a bank or in consulting, but yearning for a chance to work on a seriously proper, global mission. You should preferably have a good mix (or ideally all) of the following: e-commerce /subscription experience, including having developed elements of direct to consumer online (subscription) experiences, as well as an understanding of how to create great user experiences and commercial outcomes; knowledge of health products, and/or products with health/medical data; demonstrable front end experience. Impress us with your portfolio;  familiarity with front end frameworks like React and tools like Gulp and Webpack (perhaps also angular, vue.js) and javascript; an entrepreneurial mindset, with no need to be micro-managed; a robust, extremely resourceful personality(someone who sees problems coming and solves them quietly and efficiently; experience in product leadership and in designing and building from scratch by partnering effectively with a UX/UI designer. Oh, you’ll also need to be prepared to work in West London.
