Front End Developer

Social Finance is a global leader in creating social change and is looking for a Front End Developer to  join our fast‐growing team.  Our innovations, including the Social Impact Bond, have mobilised over  £500m for social change to support thousands of vulnerable families and people in the UK and  abroad from children in need to ex‐offenders. 
 
You will work closely with social change innovators, thought‐leaders, data‐scientists, and social  issue experts to design and deliver services that enable the public and social sector to provide  better support for some of the country’s most vulnerable populations. You will work at the intersection of data, digital and public services: How should the government  use data and digital to support its citizens? How do you design services that can respond to  changing user needs? And, how do you avoid introducing ethical, social, or cultural bias into  solutions and services? 

This is a chance to work on a cutting edge serverless project with a chance to make meaningful technical decisions on architecture and direction. You will promote software best practices and  mentor a small team of front end developers. For more information, please click here.
