Software Engineer (Frontend / React.js)

Job description

Do you want to be part of a fast-growing startup while making a positive impact on the world?


About StudentFinance
StudentFinance is a venture-backed company with the mission of removing barriers to education and empower economic mobility.

We deeply believe in the power of education and that access to education should not depend on one's financial background. Currently, millions of people are in need of reskilling and are not able to fulfil their potential due to financial barriers.

So we are building the technological, data, and financial infrastructure to offer outcomes-based financing. Through Income Share Agreements, people defer the tuition payment and only start making payments after getting a job. ISAs are all about aligned incentives, and so are we at StudentFinance. Our end game is supporting our customer's transition to employment and financial health.

To get there, we are building a world-class team of purpose-driven and entrepreneurial people, working in a remote setting from cities across Europe.

About the role
We are looking for a Software Engineer who is excited about building features along our ambitious frontend roadmap.

In this role you will be working as part of a diverse, energetic team, working in a remote setting from cities across Europe.

Your responsibilities:

  • Build awesome interfaces for B2C and B2B users, in desktop and mobile web.
  • Collaborate in growing the company's React.js codebase in a scalable way, that enables the growth plans of the company.

  • Deliver world class, tested and documented software code, that complies with security and privacy standards.
  • Be an active stakeholder in software architecture discussions around the features you'll build.
  • Be a proactive voice in proposing tools and processes that could make yourself and the team more efficient and productive.
  • Work cross-functionally to handle and resolve complex and time-sensitive challenges that are important for the company.
