As a Front-end Software Engineer at SnapScan, you will own, create and maintain
solutions related to our user and merchant-facing applications and websites. You will
work on highly-available, resilient systems that more than 1 million users and 60,000
merchants across the country have come to depend on daily.
You will have the opportunity to work across our full product stack: mobile
applications, merchant portal, operational services, and technical integrations.
Integrations include new features and products that build on the existing ecosystem
to enable, for example, new payment options and methods for our users, or more
accurate and efficient onboarding of new merchants.
You will work within a team, but will, ultimately, be responsible for making your stuff
work. We value a get-things-done approach. You (and your team) will have autonomy
to choose and implement tools and frameworks that best allow you to solve the
problem at hand.
What You’ll Do
● Work with the product manager to gather requirements and estimate
development time for new solutions
● Design, build and iterate on mobile apps, websites, portals and product
● Peer review code to ensure that we maintain the integrity and quality of our
● Maintain infrastructure by automating things through Ansible & Terraform
● Worry about the correct operation of our services, optimising them for
performance, scalability, security, correctness and robustness
We value openness, psychological-safety and proactiveness. You will have plenty of
opportunity to learn and grow with us.
We have always maintained that having fewer, highly skilled and invested engineers
delivers stronger results than would be delivered by bigger teams. You will join a
small, highly-leveraged technical team that has buy-in and autonomy to solve
problems using whatever tools are fit for purpose.
While familiarity with our stack would make it quicker for you to get going, it is more
important that you are comfortable with the concepts, rather than specific
The most relevant components are:
● CI for all the things
● Rails apps/services running on AWS (EC2 and ECS)
● Postgres databases (choice of DB matters at scale)
● Angular, Typescript, Cordova, Objective-C (iOS) and Java (Android) for our
cross-platform mobile app
● React and Typescript for our internal back office portal
