UK - Cambridge / Nottingham/ Hybrid
Formpipe is an established and growing document management company with offices in Cambridge, Nottingham, Stockholm, and Copenhagen, as well as many other locations around the world.
We specialise in document generation and document archiving for all industry sectors, with a particular focus on banking and ERP.
We are currently on a journey of modernisation, which includes transforming our existing server and desktop-based applications into a single web-based solution.
Formpipe has a “work from anywhere” policy, giving its employees a significant amount of freedom and flexibility. We also see a lot of value in face-to-face communication, with many people choosing a balance between working in our offices and working from home each week.
We are seeking an experienced and skilled full stack developer with strong React knowledge to join our growing platform team. The successful candidate will play a key role in transforming legacy user interfaces into modern, efficient, and scalable UIs built with React.
Working with your colleagues and an external design agency, you will be tasked with analysing the current solutions and liaising with backend teams, before designing and implementing the new web-based front end. You will be involved in the entire lifecycle of the project, from conception to deployment, ensuring high performance and responsiveness of the applications.
Although this is primarily a frontend position, you will be working closely with a team of full stack Java and React developers, so Java experience is highly desirable.
This is a role that will require a driven and motivated individual to continue pushing the project forward and someone who is confident in making decisions and delivering results. You must be able to demonstrate your ability to work as part of an integrated team that can deliver the objectives of the business. With this role, you will be given a significant degree of responsibility, autonomy, and freedom.
We work to a modified form of Scrum and like to work in an agile way, but not let agile get in the way.
Duties and Responsibilities.
- Lead the conversion of existing user interfaces to React, ensuring high-quality standards.
- Collaborate with backend teams to integrate Java and .NET-based services.
- Participate in code reviews, ensuring adherence to best practices and high code quality.
- Provide technical guidance and mentorship to other team members.
Knowledge, Skills and Experience.
- 3+ years of React experience.
- Strong TypeScript skills.
- Strong understanding of state management patterns and best practices.
- Experience working in Java / JVM-based languages.
- Excellent problem-solving skills and attention to detail.
- Strong communication and team collaboration skills.
- Experience with end-to-end testing tools such as Playwright and Selenium.
- 5+ years of React experience.
- Experience taking legacy UIs and converting them to modern web applications.
- Proficiency in using build tools like Vite.
