Senior Front-End Developer at What3Words
London, GB

We’re looking for an outstanding Web Developer who knows code and has proven experience of writing it, as well as a good eye for design and can create engaging experiences that people will love to use.

You will be working in a incredibly ambitious, diverse company that is passionate about its goal: creating a global standard for talking about location. We’re looking for an outstanding Web Developer with a talent for coding, as well as a good eye for design who can create engaging experiences that people will love to use.

At what3words, we’re proud of our tech stack. We have a built a massively scalable, microservices-based architecture, based around Kubernetes on AWS. You’ll be exposed to technologies such as ReactJS, Docker, Redis, AWS Lambdas, Prometheus, Grafana, Python, Athena, BigQuery, Java, Scala, C++ and Swift.

This a great opportunity to join an innovative, fast growing Agile team, at one of the most exciting times in this company’s life.



This very much a front-end role, developing our map site, corporate site and our upcoming highly-interactive developer site (with a “developer playground”). We have clear separation of concerns: our front-ends are generally “static” and consume APIs (these are developed by our core tech team, who work on back end systems). You will also work closely with our product and UX teams, receiving designs. However, we expect a critical eye (to question designs where appropriate) and a hunger to innovate – bringing fresh ideas, and new ways to make what3words a better solution.

You will need a good eye for detail and sound engineering practices and enjoy a fast paced environment, learning constantly on the job. This is a high-profile role with significant freedom to set the technical direction and innovate, and you will report directly to the CTO.

You have good experience of Linux, expertise in building gorgeous user interfaces on top of RESTful web APIs, using React, JavaScript, CSS/SASS. You will have the ability to lead by motivating, guiding and inspiring others, and strong experience with the hiring process.

You have the ability to work independently, self-motivate, collaborate with others and work under pressure.

What we expect:

  • Deep expertise in ES6, modern JS libraries, React, CSS & pre-processors such as SASS.
  • Excellent communication skills in verbal & written English.
  • A passion for software engineering and continuous learning.
  • Strong track record of building responsive sites for desktop, tablet and mobile.
  • Experience of Agile working environments.
  • 2:1 or 1st class class degree in Computer Science or a numerate subject.
  • Ideally, knowledge of GIS systems, WordPress, AWS, Kubernetes, Hubspot, Google Maps or Leaflet.
