Front-end Developer (React.js)

London, United Kingdom

QuantSpark is an innovative boutique strategic analytics consultancy based in London. Our hybrid team combines the best of strategy consulting, data analytics and product development to deliver creative and impactful solutions to public and private sector clients.

QuantSpark pioneers the strategic application of data science through software solutions. Our work spans a broad range of clients from the private and public sectors including one of the UK's largest supermarkets, a fashion retailer, a strategic communications agency, Google, Young Enterprise, and the United Nations.

We're a small but super-effective interdisciplinary team so in particular we look out for people who have entrepreneurial flair and an ability to understand what's important for our clients.

Our recent projects include

What the role is about:

As a Frontend/UI Developer, you will build websites or applications that our clients use to better understand the data and models we have assembled for them.

You will also be able to switch between teams and thus work on a range of projects, including pro-bono ones.

You could eventually become a Frontend expert, learn more about automated testing or DevOps, move into Full-Stack development, or get started on Strategic Consulting if that’s where you want to take your career.
