Software Engineer (TypeScript & React)

London, United Kingdom
Full-Time

πŸ“ Location - London OR Sheffield base office

πŸ–₯️ Hybrid working as standard, 2 days a week in the office, the other 3 days remote (or office if you prefer!)

πŸ”” Please note before applying: this is an Intermediate II level role within our team (tipping towards senior), and so we are really keen to see Product Engineers with solid commercial experience working with TypeScript & React. If this is you then we would love to hear from you!

Our mission:

  • Two in five people in the UK rent their homes. Goodlord's mission? To provide them with the best renting experience in the world 🌎
  • We started Goodlord because we wanted to make renting simple and transparent for everyone involved: the agent, the landlord, and the tenant. We knew Generation Rent would lead to more tenants, with higher digital expectations and we were confident we could provide a solution 🏠
  • Like all scale-ups it’s been a bit of a rollercoaster journey, but we’re now stronger than ever, with around 3,000 letting agents using the platform, exciting and varied products and 350 Goodlordians supporting the mission! πŸ’š

The Opportunity:

  • Work with product managers, designers, business colleagues and other engineers to understand end-user problems and implement appropriate solutions
  • Assist your squad by defining tasks end-to-end and working autonomously
  • Use your knowledge of Typescript to continuously improve the platform, implement coding standards, and help define a technical roadmap of improvements
  • Offer mentoring to less experienced developers

What we need from you:

  • Significant commercial experience building web based applications using Typescript and React.
  • Proficient at writing automated tests using frameworks such as Jest, React Testing Library or Cypress.
  • Strong knowledge of web application security and how to guard against common vulnerabilities.
  • Confident at debugging issues in local and production environments and across system boundaries.

What's in it for you:

  • πŸš€ Grow with Goodlord: your development is important to us. Have a goal in mind? Share it with us and you can use your Β£1000 annual development fund to support it. We guarantee you’ll learn loads and develop both personally and professionally at Goodlord too!
  • πŸ’• Your well-being matters: bi-weekly coaching with Sanctus to provide Goodlordians with a safe place to talk and support your mental health
  • 🌴 Unlimited holiday and flexible time off (subject to passing probation & fair usage policies): we encourage Goodlordians to make use of their unlimited time off to enjoy the world, recharge, and reboot. We also offer time off for volunteering and training, so you can give back to the community and pursue your passions
  • πŸ€— Supporting your family: we offer Goodlordians of all genders a generous 3 months of fully-paid time off to look after their new arrivals

What’s next?
