Frontend Engineer

Job Details:

We are looking for a Frontend Engineer to join our team in London.

We want to inspire the world to forecast correctly and empower it to tackle risk, thanks to our unique ability to forecast the outcomes of construction projects. We can change how construction projects are managed and executed. A crucial part of getting there is being able to deliver deep insights for very large construction schedules.

We’re working with some of the largest infrastructure projects in the world (think HS2, Heathrow, Crossrail), which means an opportunity for you to have a significant impact on the world around us, and what it will look like in the future, from the very first day.

You’ll be joining a world-class and very well funded team, backed by top investors including GV (formerly known as Google Ventures) that all believe in the future we are creating. We’ve been on a tremendous growth trajectory for the last four years, and thanks to our latest $18.5m investment round we have even more ambitious growth plans for 2023 and beyond, scaling our product and team at an exciting pace.

What you’ll do as a Frontend Engineer:

  • Working with the product and machine learning teams, you’ll play a major role in building the frontend of our flagship products
  • You would be involved in major decisions about our product as we begin a crucial and exciting stage of product innovation.
  • Discover new ways to communicate our insights to our growing user base. This really invites you to think broadly about communicating uncertainty, risk and complexity.
  • You’ll help others in reviewing code and designing components.
  • You’ll be working mainly with React, GraphQL (Apollo), VisX but also various other frontend libraries and tools.

We need you to have:

  • Strong knowledge of modern JavaScript
  • Experience with React
  • Experience writing robust markup and modern CSS
  • Familiarity working with Git in engineering teams
  • Please mention the word ‘Crane’ in your application

We’d also appreciate any of:

  • Experience with testing React
  • Some experience with GraphQL and VisX
  • A passion for writing reusable, modular code
  • Experience working closely with UX experts
  • Exposure to gRPC, TypeScript, service workers

What working at nPlan will be like:

  • We are still a small team so there is plenty of opportunity for a high degree of ownership over different areas of the company, and you will be directly exposed to all areas of the business.
  • Your voice will always be heard. What you do or say counts, not who you are or where you’re from.
  • We have three core values that underlie everything we do: Learn from Everything, Be Radically Truthful, and Aim High, Run Fast. These enable us to create a collaborative, inclusive environment where we can move effectively and efficiently to implement the best solutions.
  • We are a cross-disciplinary team, and come from all sorts of backgrounds and countries. We offer visa sponsorship and contribute to relocation costs.
  • We give all employees share options in the company – these have the potential to grow in value significantly if we continue on our current trajectory (though it’s important to know that the value of shares can go down as well as up)
  • We are committed to addressing the diversity problem in the tech industry, and that starts with making sure we have a diverse team where everyone feels at home and can contribute as an equal.
  • Having time to yourself and a private life is important. We offer a very flexible work environment and a generous holiday policy.

What your typical working week will look like:

  • You will spend most of your time turning designs into product features, bringing our advanced project analytics to users in a clear and powerful way.
  • You will work in an agile and cross-functional squad which has ownership and autonomy over a section of our product to best meet our users’ needs.
  • You’ll contribute to improving our capabilities and development process, working with your Chapter Lead to grow yourself and share knowledge with others

We are working hard to create a workplace that is inclusive to everyone, no matter their background, or where they are in life. We believe that only a truly diverse place can create great products that serve a wide audience and improve the world.

We believe in equality of opportunities and that’s why we make sure that these ideas are reflected in our values, and that we really apply these in all aspects of our company culture.

If you have any questions about what that looks like in practice, feel free to reach out to us.
If you have a need for any adjustments during our interview process, let us know and we will do our best to accommodate them.
