We have big ambitions to revolutionise how people make the biggest decisions in their life, so they can ensure they are making the right plans for their future. We have a talented team who share our vision and know that to be the best at what we do, we need to be relentless about progress. We are a team of doers who move quickly, collaborate and learn from our mistakes.

We're enjoying this exciting journey we are on – we are helping people and shaping a growing business at the same time. 


The Role

Unbiased is a Technology enabled business and key to the success of the business is the Technology team and the Technology that runs the business.

Over the past year we have been upgrading our Tech stack to move to the latest frameworks and tools such as vue.js, graphql, docker and kubernetes as well as migrating to Google Cloud Platform. We are on a journey and we are looking for a great developer but also someone that can bring their own expertise to push forward our overall technical excellence.

We have an exciting opportunity for a talented Front End Developer to join our London based team. The Technology team is primarily offshore but are looking to build out a London team to be closer to our internal customers and for the diversity that it brings. 

We are investing in our customer facing Apps and Websites so that they have a feature set to attract and engage customers with new capabilities and new channels. We have done a lot of the hard work in re-platforming to Single Page Apps and need a front end expert to help us realise the next phase of our customer facing technical development.

 

You’ll be responsible for…

  • Developing great code (best practice architecturally e.g. for performance, security)
  • Contributing to a quality agile development process
  • Enhancing front end performance scores
  • Championing the use of SPA capabilities for the Consumer/Pro Apps


What you'll get...

You'll be able to take your career to the next level within a fast growth, startup-type business. You'll have an opportunity to work with a bunch of skilled people both in London and offshore with the sole goal of making things better so that the overall business can flourish. As the Tech team continues to invest in new technology you'll also have the chance to learn new things and stay ahead of the curve.


To succeed, you’ll need…

Essential

  • Languages/frameworks: Vue.js, Angular, JavaScript, HTML/CSS/LeSS, Webpack
  • Environment: Google Cloud Platform, Linux, Git, JIRA 

Desirable

  • The ideal candidate could have 5+ years of front end development experience
  • Will have worked on customer facing websites and also developing front end of SaaS (browser based) applications

What makes us different?

Want some insight into how we work as a team? Here are our culture behaviours that are at the core of everything we do:

Be relentless about progress

To be the best at what we do, we push things forward with tenacity. 

There will always be blockers, we always find ways around them. 

Enjoy the journey

We celebrate successes and give kudos to our colleagues for a job well done, no matter how small.


Share and seek input

Our most valuable asset is our people. We embrace challenge and different opinions and are more interested in learning than being right. 

Risk failure to achieve success 

We iterate often, fail quickly, learn and go again. But this doesn't mean we sacrifice the quality of our work. We aim for excellence in everything we do but we also acknowledge that sometimes we need to say: for now, it is good enough. 

Own it and get it done

We don't point blame or find excuses. We are accountable and take responsibility for our mistakes and when we don't deliver. We totally own our failures and learn from them.
