GetGround is hiring a

Senior Frontend Engineer

London, United Kingdom

We're a well-funded Tech scaleup in Europe and Asia with a mission to make the world fairer and more productive. We are doing this by making assets more transparent, trustworthy and accessible - starting with real estate. Incomes have stagnated, so more access to high value assets like real estate = less wealth inequality. We have first mover advantage!

Our CEO and co-founder Moubin was previously at McKinsey and private equity firm APAX, whilst our CTO and co-founder Misrab is a Stanford Computer Scientist who scaled the data team at Gojek, a Tech unicorn in Asia. Listen to a podcast of Moubin speaking with our investors QED about how we're disrupting asset ownership!

Our values sit at the core of GetGround - no BS, pursuit of excellence, feedback obsession and healthy ego. 

GetGround in numbers:

  • 🧑‍🤝‍🧑 85 GetGrounders (ex Google, Meta, Deliveroo etc)
  • 🏘 £1Bn+ of assets being added onto our platform annually
  • 📈 15,000+ users across 70 countries, with a 10% market share already
  • 🌎 Global hubs (UK, Portugal, Hong Kong, Singapore)

(hybrid working 3 days per week in our co-working office in Hammersmith - with free breakfast daily and gym membership + other benefits below)

You will join one of our 3 cross functional Dev teams based in our London office where you will work with product and design to create products that delight our users. This is an opportunity to join a well funded scale-up with a clear vision, purpose & mission.

Tech at GetGround is led by CTO and co-founder Misrab (a Stanford Computer Scientist and former VP Data at the Asian tech unicorn Gojek) and Evgenios as VP Engineering (former Engineering Director at Meta). The GetGround engineering team is split into cross-functional Tech squads in London and Portugal. Check out our recent Hackathon blog post and Paula's blog post on her experience as a Frontend Engineer here so far :)

Some of the things we feel passionately about:

  • Technical rigour through collaborative, multi-disciplinary and thorough refinement processes. We want hackers and painters!

  • A challenger mindset - to implement new patterns and libraries including improving readability and efficiency

What you will do

  • Own the user-facing web frontend codebase of the application, currently built in React with Redux

  • Design and write clean documentation
  • Collaborate with Backend Engineers (who work with Golang) to integrate user-facing elements with server side logic
  • Build reusable code and libraries for future use
  • Mentor other frontend and backend engineers

Essential skills and experience you will have:

  • Experience working as a Frontend (or Fullstack) engineer
  • Ideally you've worked with React, Redux, Typescript - but this is NOT essential

  • Unit testing, integration testing, or similar testing frameworks
  • You've mentored junior engineers
