Software Developer

London

Are you a Software Developer with the experience, passion, and skills needed to create delightful digital experiences?

We are looking for a Software Developer to join our team who knows their stuff, are passionate about it, and who wants to learn more. Whether it's JavaScript frameworks, continuous integration, test automation, CSS, deployment frameworks, mobile apps or NoSQL databases - web is your thing - and you can position yourself in frontend, backend, or somewhere in between.

Not right for you? Back to job board

Let’s figure out if we fit together.
Read on to find out more about your future role.

In this role you will—

  • Build and develop software solutions with novelty and impact, and integrate them into our client’s software landscape.
  • Co-create and design concepts together with our designers and clients.
  • Create solution proposals for our clients.
  • Build prototypes to help explore or validate new propositions.
  • Champion our ways of working and develop workflows with our clients.
  • Collaborate, learn from, mentor, and inspire other developers from the team.

Your skills—

  • You know how to build a smooth single-page app from the ground up in e.g. React, Vue, or Angular.
  • You know what it takes to have your client talk with a back-end over a REST API, and even design one when needed.
  • You're no stranger to HTML and CSS, or looking up DOM elements and setting breakpoints in Chrome's DevTools.
  • You know how to minify, bundle, and get your code running on e.g. Heroku or Netlify.
  • You have an understanding of current programming paradigms: functional programming, reactive programming, etc.
  • You communicate effectively with technical and non-technical audiences.

Does this sound like you?

  • A browser is not just a rendering tool, it's your medium of choice.
  • You like to keep yourself up-to-date on the latest happenings in the web development scene.
  • You've probably come across technologies such as Redux, Elm, TypeScript, RxJS, Cycle.js or Purescript. Maybe you've also tried running your app on React Native to see how it compares to the web.
  • You can appreciate high-quality web craftsmanship, good open-source libraries and tools and might have published a Node module or contributed to one.
  • You are a team player who can work in a multi-disciplined arena.

Here’s what Futurice boils down to:

People first— We strive for transparency and provide opportunities for our team to have an impact on their own work and the whole company. At Futurice you’re given autonomy and are trusted to make good decisions. Want X to get done? Discuss with your peers and then do X. Done. No bureaucracy.

Freedom and responsibility— Those are the two most important things on offer at Futurice, as far as quality of life goes. You’ll be given freedom to make your life here as rewarding as possible and to do things your way. You’ll be expected to take responsibility for your own work and how the company as a whole operates. And you’ll be heard. We value everyone’s input into how the company is run.

Experiment— Try new things. Drive what you are passionate about. Fail interestingly, succeed spectacularly. These are the sort of things we’ll give you a lot of leeway to do. We’re growing and changing as a company, so we want you to grow as a person and professional, too. We don’t want to stick you in a tightly prescribed role and say, “Stay!”. Whenever you need support, we’ll do all we can to help you move in the direction you want. At Futurice you’ll work side by side with world-class experts from other fields. We don’t build silos for tech, design, and advisory.

Opportunities— We have offices in four different countries (and growing), with employees of more than 30 nationalities. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to try different things - from projects to lifestyles. Futurice is in good shape. We are growing profitably and working to have a positive impact on the world. We work with major international corporations and build services used by millions of their customers in work and leisure. We have a social responsibility program where you can give back to the community, too. Would you like to come and help us? You’ll get a lot out of it yourself, too.
