Gener8 Ads · Frontend Engineer

Flexibility to work remotely, or from our London office

We’re looking for a Frontend Engineer to take on a key role shaping the growth of our rapidly growing product.

About us

The open secret within the tech industry is that it’s built on exploiting people’s data. Gener8 changes that: we’re a browser that enables people to control and earn from their data by giving them a simple choice: Rewards Mode or Privacy Mode.

Following our success pitching on Dragons’ Den, securing investment from Peter Jones, Touker Suleyman as well as managing to snag another dragon, Tej Lalvani, in a £2.1M round after the show, we’re on track for exceptional growth over the next 12 months. We have nearly half a million registered users and are growing fast. We’re looking for someone to join the team and take on the challenge of making our web-based products pop and shine with quality.

About the role

We’ve had an incredible 12 months growing the product and engineering team from 2 to 11, now we’re looking to take that to the next level by building out the frontend engineering team. Working on our core consumer web products, your work will be at the very forefront of the interactions our users have with our product every day.

A few of the things in our backlog that you could be working on:

  • Improving the new tab page that’s seen hundreds of thousands of times per day by our users, making it more customisable, whilst hyper focused on rendering performance
  • Working on our brand new extension, focussed on a new product category, launching in the coming months
  • Rebuilding our marketplace that is used to give value back to users
  • Improving our core ad blocking technology

For the frontend you’ll be using React, Ember and good old Vanilla JS. On the backend we use Golang to serve RESTful and gRPC APIs running on Kubernetes. We use GitLab for version control and CI, Jira for tracking tasks and Slack for sending cat GIFs.

Responsibilities

  • Developing new features, modifying existing ones and fixing bugs as they arise
  • Being hands on with development of our website, extensions and browser
  • Regularly reviewing other engineer’s code, making suggestions and using them as teaching opportunities for more advanced techniques.
  • Writing automated tests to keep the quality of our products high
  • Work closely with the product team to refine new features and user interfaces
  • Proactively engage more junior team members to check in and help if necessary

Requirements

This is the right opportunity for you if you have:

  • 3+ years commercial frontend web development experience, using a framework such as React, Vue or Ember.
  • Experience making API driven web apps in production environments
  • Experience building UIs that surprise and delight users
  • Strong JavaScript and CSS skills
  • Experience developing software within a distributed team
  • Excellent verbal and written English communication skills
