Experienced Frontend Engineers that can work remotely in the UK, Bulgaria and across some countries in EU

Role overview

This role is a Formidable full-time position for residents of the UK.

You will work with other Formidable engineers using a modern JavaScript stack to implement new applications, features, and tools for companies ranging in size from startups to Fortune 100s. You will regularly collaborate with client teams to provide project leadership, mentorship, and technical expertise. When you’re not working on client projects, you’ll have a chance to contribute to our community-leading open-source software.

We make sure our employees get opportunities to grow within Formidable and participate in daily decision-making processes. Our engineers are leaders in the community and frequently speak at key conferences. Working with other Formidables, you are guaranteed to continually cultivate your skillset by staying atop of industry trends and tools.

In light of COVID-19, Formidable will continue to recommend that all employees continue to work remotely whenever possible. Currently, Formidable has no plans to require anyone to be physically present in a Formidable or client office.

If you’re interested in joining a collaborative community that supports employees and understands the importance of maintaining a work-life balance, we would love to talk to you.

You Have

  • An interest in working in a client service role and passion for the positive long-term impacts of code health and smooth developer experience, while being sensitive to client goals and timelines
  • Understanding of engineering for the web: client/server architecture, REST, and modern best practices
  • The ability to communicate the benefits of technical solutions to non-technical project partners effectively
  • Patience and drive to both learn from and mentor others
  • 5+ years of software development experience
  • 4+ years of professional experience in a JavaScript stack with a build process
  • 2+ years of professional experience in React

You are experienced In

  • JavaScript, both modern techniques and core concepts
  • Deep knowledge of React and the surrounding open source ecosystem
  • Semantic HTML
  • Git, especially with teams
  • Front-end build tooling (Webpack/Parcel, Babel, NPM/Yarn)
  • Front-end testing libraries and methods (Jest/Enzyme/react-testing-library)
  • Web accessibility/a11y

Extra Credit

  • Mentorship experience
  • Experience leading teams
  • Familiarity with Node frameworks like Express
  • Familiarity with Persistence layers like MongoDB or PostgreSQL
  • Familiarity with Typescript
  • Experience with GraphQL
  • Open Source contributors

Compensation

  • Base salary range for this position is £78,000 - £100,000 and is based upon years of experience that is commensurate with the level of the position.
  • We employ a simple and fair salary system that pays everyone the same salary for the same work. This Open Pay system is competitive in a fast-growing market and provides transparency to what is typically an opaque and unbalanced negotiation.

About us 

Formidable is an engineering + design consultancy and open source software organisation, specialising in React, React Native, GraphQL, Node, and the architecture of large-scale JavaScript applications. We are a team of consultants working together to find holistic and sustainable solutions to challenging problems for our clients. We build products for some of the world’s biggest companies while helping their internal teams develop the skillset to create and maintain thoughtful and scalable systems.

How do we work?

Our consultants act as an extension of our customer’s team, embedding themselves in the environment, and adapting to our clients’ requirements and challenges, so they can develop a truly impactful and innovative solution.

We take a lot of pride in both the work we do and how we do it. We love trying new approaches, challenging the norm, and we’ll never stop striving to be at our technical best. It comes naturally to both our team and the community we work within to help each other’s growth, share and elevate ideas, and meaningfully collaborate as much as possible. Our people are more than the sum of their parts.

That’s why you’ll get an unusual amount of autonomy — you’re here because you’re brilliant, so we trust you to do your role in a way that works for you. Our high-trust culture is one of the things that makes us so successful, so you do you and we’ll be over here, listening and providing support where needed.

Life at Formidable

We are proud of the culture we have built and truly believe that work should be a place where you come to grow, be challenged, build relationships and have fun.When people from varied backgrounds and experiences come together, the greatest outcomes are the result. We believe people are at their best when they have what they need, so we made Formidable a place where all can feel welcomed, supported, and heard

At Formidable we value

Inclusion: Come as you are. You are safe here.

Autonomy: We trust you to make good decisions and get your work done.

Craft: Level up. We’re always working to improve ourselves through practice, peer review, teamwork, and communication

What We Offer Our UK Employees

  • Holiday - It is important to us that you take some time for yourself to do the things you love, recharge and refresh, so we offer a holiday allowance of 25 days + bank holidays + Christmas closure (usually 4 days).
  • Flexible working - We are a fully flexible working company and support people working from home. We only ask that you are available for team and client meetings and can dial in from wherever you are if you are working remotely that day.
  • Travel cards - London travel can be costly! We will help with either an Oyster card or travel allowance if you use public transport to get to the office on a regular basis.
  • Pensions - We want you to feel like working at Formidable is contributing to your future, not just your career, so we will match 4% of your employee contribution with 4% to your pension.
  • Private medical insurance - We like to do what we can to give our Formidables peace of mind internally and externally, so we provide full private MHD [medical history disregarded] cover with Aviva, including dental and optician add-ons (this can be extended to spouses and children too and Formidable will pay 75% of their premiums), as well as life cover & critical illness cover.
  • Family Forming and Fertility benefits - To support all paths to parenthood.
  • Health & wellness bonus - Health and wellness can come in all different forms, so to support you in choosing what works, we give you an annual £1,250 bonus to spend on what is right for you.
  • Remote Working Stipend (The Megabucket) - The Remote Work Stipend is designed to help Formidables work their best. You will have access to up to £3,000 of expenses per year to help pay for the following needs, however you see fit:
  • Home Office Setup: set up your home workspace in a manner that will make working from home more pleasant and productive (desk, chair, monitor, etc).
  • Inter-office travel: We like our Formidables to get to know each other properly; what better way than a trip to visit and work with other teams? You can choose to use this stipend to cover your travel and accommodation so you can go and work with Formidables in other locations. This benefit is currently suspended for overseas travel due to Covid, but we hope to reinstate it very soon!
  • Conference Reimbursement: Use some or all of your stipend to go towards conference tickets and the travel/lodging to get you there.
  • Co-Working: if you live more than 30 miles from our London office, you will have access to up to an additional £1,000 to pay for or subsidize a co-working space for yourself, such as renting a flexible hot desk or private office.
  • Open source - We have incredible access to a wider community of coding specialists who are as passionate about Open Source as we are + an internal ‘Sauce Program’ that enables you to earn extra money for any extra OSS hours you put in.
  • Training & development - You’ll receive unparalleled support from your peers + an all-you-can-eat professional development budget to ensure you can access all that you need to keep growing in your role and levelling up.
  • Collaboration & exposure - We work in a collaborative environment that leads to continuous, organic personal development. You’ll also have exposure to a wide variety of customers, from scale-ups to Fortune 100s.
  • Giving back - We also love to give back to our community - so if you give to charity and want to set this up through BrightFunds, we will match your contributions by up to $1000 in your local currency a year.
  • Feeling peckish? Us too we have a fully stocked office of snacks and drinks to keep you going throughout the day.
  • Formidable Gatherings - Formidables work remotely all over the place, so we try to get together at least once a year in London or Seattle to have some fun in person. Covid still has some things up in the air right now, but we’re hopeful we’ll be able to get together in person again soon!

Inclusion is one of our core values. We don’t discriminate by race, religion, national origin, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

We are not offering UK visa sponsorship at this time and hence, unfortunately, require our candidates that they have the right to work in the UK without visa sponsorship.

We build the modern web. We build beautifully designed, solidly engineered, performative digital experiences for humans, just like you. For nearly a decade we've helped design, build, and deliver digital products for some of the world's largest brands. From retail to healthcare to professional services, we've partnered with dozens of clients to realize their digital transformation goals for millions of users. 🚀 The business is Headquartered in Seattle and has team representation across much of North America. The EMEA HQ is in London, where business for the region is coordinated, but there are Engineers across other parts of the continent, such as Spain and Bulgaria. Currently, there are more than 110 FT employees across the globe. Whilst not forgetting our roots and proud heritage in front-end development, the next evolution of the company is taking shape as we start to diversify the array of services and skill sets we can offer to clients. This shift has seen, in recent times, the addition of backend engineers, cloud infrastructure specialists, project managers, and the establishment of a digital design arm. Increasing client demand for such services and a commercial shift to identify new client retention strategy and develop new revenue streams has been the catalyst as we head towards Digital Product Development positioning. Formidable will always apply a human-centric, consultative mindset across everything we do and this approach is particularly useful from a Design services perspective enabling the team to deliver great end user experiences, optimised for engineering. As a business we're already seeing the benefit of this transition. ****An incredible culture is central the company's success and so as we grow, any strategic shifts will need to maintain this core aspect. Whilst maintaining these values, it's incredibly exciting to see we are now able to carry out a diverse array of projects - everything from new product development work to terraform orientated projects and UI overhauls. This wasn't possible not so long ago. The heartbeat of Formidable alongside its culture, is a passion for all things Open Source. Our reputation has been built on the array of incredible Open Source tools we have built over the years. We are fortunate to leverage such brilliant OSS assets that raise awareness and continue to engage in equal measure.
