The Company:

Jefferson Frank are thrilled to continue their relationship working with an exciting gaming client based in Stockholm. Founded in 2016 they have been on a mission ever since to connect their loyal customers with the BEST games available on the market, rewarding them with the best gaming experience possible. To ensure the richest gaming experience possible they have removed downloads, installations and signs up's to give customers immediate access in an unrestricted manner, allowing them to appeal to the mass market. It therefore comes as no surprise they are yet another enterprise to be dubbed 'The Netflix of Gaming'.

The Role:

For this priority position the client is hiring a Senior Frontend developer who will become a pivotal and instrumental player within the entire development department. You'll be leading their web front-end tech strategy, helping them to build the best games platform for both users and game developers.

In addition to this you will play an active role in supporting and mentoring the engineers within the team at different levels of seniority. Whilst this does not require formal, line management duties you will be an individual contributor on the tech leadership career track.

You'll be working with a modern frontend infrastructure which includes but is not limited to TypeScript, React, Redux, GCP and Kubernetes. The client runs a custom-written and server-side rendering solution with hot-reloading, making heavy use of protocol buffers for all kinds of message passing. You'll be responsible for overseeing system designs, RFC's, code reviews and other artefacts necessary to promote and implement the tech strategy. You'll lead the web front-end community of practice, facilitate a culture of knowledge sharing and champion engineering excellence & platform health.
