Senior Frontend Engineer

Job description

Summary

We are looking for a motivated and high-achieving Senior Frontend Engineer based in London to join our Product team in building a platform to optimise every business on the planet. This is a full-time placement with significant opportunities for personal development.


We offer an intellectually stimulating environment, work within an interdisciplinary team and an inclusive culture. We are a high-calibre, mission-driven team building a technology that improves our world.


Roles and Responsibilities

We are looking for exceptional and ambitious individuals to develop our Causal AI platform for time series. As a Senior Frontend Engineer you will be involved with the product at all stages of development, from initial conception of a new idea all the way to seeing it deployed to our customers. You should have strong technical and communication skills and enjoy mentoring junior members of staff. You should want to take ownership of what you are building and be willing to push your own ideas forwards for development.


You will be expected to refine and implement our development standards & best practices. Experience with collaboration tools and general programming tools is desirable. On the frontend, we use React (with hooks), Typescript and styled components to build the majority of the application. We’re always open to trying new things if there is a good reason though. The rest of the application stack includes Python, Numpy, Torch, Django, Postgres, Redis, Ansible, AWS, GCP and other technologies.


The Company

Current machine learning approaches have severe limitations when applied to real-world business problems and fail to unlock the true potential of AI for the enterprise. causaLens is pioneering Causal AI, a new category of intelligent machines that understand cause and effect - a major step towards true artificial intelligence. Our enterprise platform goes beyond predictions and provides causal insights and suggested actions that directly improve business outcomes for leading businesses in asset management, banking, insurance, logistics, retail, utilities, energy, telecommunications and many others.


We are committed to addressing the diversity problem in the tech industry, and that starts with making sure we have a team where everyone feels at home and can contribute as a peer.
