Our focus is to produce high-quality, working, and tested code that not only keeps us happy and productive but also helps the business to succeed. Our development process has been honed through exploring various flavors of agile and we believe that our way of working helps us get the right things done at the right time.
We’re looking for a lead frontend developer to join our team; someone who has had years of experience in React, has seen its evolution, and understands not just how to code but how to build and architect systems using it. We’re looking for someone who has leadership tendencies, who’s passionate and driven, gets stuff done, and isn’t afraid to ask for help. We’re looking for someone who embodies our company’s core values. If this resonates with you, we’d love to meet you.
Team and Technology
The MyBuilder Core team is responsible for improving and maintaining the MyBuilder marketplace in the UK. We work on everything from trade and job acquisition to shortlisting, hiring, feedback, profile building, tradesperson payments, and communications on MyBuilder. We also look after services related to the marketplace such as Quote Tool, but new products and services are the responsibility of the domain team. We also work closely with the Infrastructure team with whom we share SRE responsibilities.
React is our frontend library of choice and we started using this back in Jan 2015. Alongside React, we use Typescript, both are powering key parts of our business and both these choices are a key difference in our growth. All of our new apps are using Redux, Typescript, Cypress and Storybook with a Lerna monorepo.
We use the Symfony framework for all of our backend systems, many of which are now running on AWS Lambda using Bref.
