The Role

We are looking for a Front End software engineer willing to work on an exciting greenfield project: a web-based platform for surfacing the power of our AI models and state of the art data analysis methods for scientists. Our goal is to bring together world-class Scientists and Machine Learning Researchers to accelerate the discovery of therapeutic treatments for human diseases. This is an ideal role if you are passionate about the Biomedical/ Medicinal Chemistry domains, user experience, data visualisation and machine learning, and if you would be excited by the opportunity to grow your skills in these areas.

We offer a great opportunity to explore and experiment with the state of the art tech stack and product to bring it to another level. You will also have the freedom to learn more within the role through regular in-house presentations and other training and develop your career in a highly challenging, but rewarding role.

Primary Responsibilities

  • Implement user interfaces using state of the art front end tools ideally with an interest in data visualisation too
  • Work across several frontends sharing the same tech stack
  • Iterate rapidly based on user feedback and experiment with different ideas without losing sight of engineering quality.
  • Work closely in an experienced application team to help implement and deliver elegant solutions for a wide range of scientists.
  • Be excited and passionate about what you do with a proactive mindset that seek to solve problems and fix issues
  • Be pragmatic and flexible - adapting your approach to work on small prototypes, MVPs and long-lived products.
  • Collaborate with Biologists, Data scientists, AI/Machine Learning researchers, bio and cheminformaticians, and Chemists. We are all passionate about maintaining a consistent user experience across our products and value a willingness to be actively involved in other non-technical processes such as user and UX research.

We are looking for someone with

  • 2+ years of commercial experience in front end web application development and with a genuine passion for elegant UI/UX solutions.
  • Strong attention to detail and a willingness to champion good design principles and translate them into code
  • Comfortable in writing unit tests for frontend code and knowledge of automated end to end testing strategiesThe willingness to be flexible and a team player matter more to us than experience in set technologies, although experience using the following stack might be beneficial: Vue (or similar frameworks), Typescript, GraphQL, Jest, Cypress.
  • Experience of Agile scrum, fast iterative environments, and version control.

We share a passion for being part of a mission that matters, and we are always looking for curious and collaborative people who share our values and want to be part of our journey.  If that sounds like a fit for you, hit the apply button and join us.
