Upper Echelon is seeking keen React developers for a Trans Tasman fintech company. Developed in 2006, their one of a kind product is now making an impact globally with over 250K users across over 90 countries. The product is an easy to use portfolio tracker that enables DIY investors with a real time, high level overview of their investments.

We are looking for experienced React frontend developers to join a team of developers working on a complex, rapidly changing application with primarily a React frontend and a Ruby on Rails backend.  

The role

Be part of creating better automation, analysis and reporting to provide an easy to use cutting-edge application for our customers to track their investment portfolios. Always considering the user experience and functionality across different devices, time zones, and use cases.

Interesting and engaging work in a collaborative, agile environment. Work with a close-knit team of frontend and backend developers, designers, and business analysts who get things done quickly and efficiently. Information sharing and upskilling is important to our client, so there will be plenty of opportunity to learn and grow.

Bring your development expertise to shape and build out structure and standards. Building out new components and pages to replace/update, or build brand new functionality. Writing Jest suites, Storybook Libraries, and Cypress tests as you build things. 

The person

A passion for ongoing learning and self-development, you’ll have excellent communication and self-organisation skills. Improvise, adapt, overcome, and learn as you work with a multidisciplinary team. Experience in CI/CD, Webpack, React hooks, Styled Components, Jest and Typescript would be a bonus. A keen interest or an understanding of share market investing won't hurt either!
