Software Engineer (React / Node )

Website YLD

Creating digital capabilities


You will work on delivering digital transformation projects at FTSE-100 companies, predominately using NodeJS and React (although we’re not restricted to only using these and will work with the most suitable tools).
You will be expected to work on-site during various customer engagements, typically within Central London.


A YLD Software Engineering Consultant is a highly-skilled developer who exemplifies the highest standard in software engineering and enjoys sharing their knowledge and experience with others.
It would be great if you have experience in some front-end frameworks (e.g. React or Vue) and an understanding of back-end architecture, scalability and deployments (even if in languages other than Node.js).
You’ll have the opportunity to build and deliver software within some interesting projects, both in terms of the product and the methodology. We work in an Agile environment (Scrum) with a test-first mindset (actually, writing code without tests should be unthinkable). We are also big advocates of pair programming and nothing is released until we have a code review.
You have a real passion for problem-solving, you are an active learner and get excited by working collaboratively with those around you.
