Posted: 3 hours ago

A communications intelligence platform headquartered in London, is looking for a UI Engineer to join their dynamic team.

The organisation is founded by machine learning researchers, engineers and entrepreneurs motivated by solving the very hard problem of getting machines to understand human communication. They aim to make it easy for users to create, manage and deploy state of the art machine learning algorithms against high volume streams of conversational data. As a VC-backed early stage startup that is rapidly growing, new team members have an opportunity to make a big impact from a small team, to tackle a huge commercial problem.

They are seeking an individual who can take a leading role in helping put powerful machine-learning capabilities in the hands of non-technical users. As an engineer at heart, they are looking for an individual who has the confidence, vision and perception to distil complex requirements into deliverable features, and to sell these ideas to business-people and other developers.

As their UI is necessarily complex and rapidly evolving, they need an individual who can help continue to refine and expand it in a well-considered way; from the code structure and tooling choices to the user experience.

As part of the team, you will be:

  • Working with our back-end and machine-learning engineers, salespeople and clients to
  • determine the best ways to harness the ML platform to deliver a product that feels great to use
  • Leading new feature projects from design through development
  • Mentoring other developers and helping to introduce best practices and improving patterns and processes
  • Involved in (at least 50% of the time) writing and reviewing code in Typescript, with React, Redux, Immutable.js and Webpack

To be part of the team, the organisation is looking for an individual who:

  • Has commercial experience of building complex UIs using modern front-end frameworks (ideally React).
  • Has a very strong understanding of Javascript (ES6+), HTML and CSS.
  • Has experience communicating with REST APIs.
  • Has experience with any of the following is a bonus: Immutable.js, Docker, Redux, Webpack.
  • Has experience writing back-end code, particularly Python, is also a big bonus.
