What we're looking for

We're looking for a Frontend Software Engineer who likes working in a close-knit team and enjoys implementing delightful, easy-to-use user interfaces.

The ideal candidate will be someone who can hit the ground running and take the lead in bringing our front-end project to the next level as we scale up the software engineering team within the company.

Ideally you'll have an interest in cyber security, and also enjoy the challenge of presenting complex concepts in an "easy to understand" way.

You should be able to build clean, secure and efficient code based on specifications and in compliance with coding standards

Further requirements:

  • Proven experience as a Front-end Software Engineer or similar role building user interfaces for web applications using Vue.js or an equivalent JavaScript framework such as React or Svelte
  • Strong understanding of CSS and of building re-usable components
  • Experience with implementing design systems
  • TypeScript knowledge
  • Front-end testing experience (unit testing, e2e testing, visual regression testing) is highly appreciated
  • Design experience and knowledge of related tools such as Figma is a plus
  • Close familiarity with Agile development methodologies, software engineering tools, software design, test-driven development and release processes
  • BSc degree in Computer Science or Engineering or equivalent industry-level experience

What’s in it for you

Intruder is a dynamic and well-funded startup operating in a very fast growing market (even during the current economic downturn). You'll join the company at just the right time, we've established a product-market fit and things are now really taking off!

This is an intermediate role and we're offering a competitive salary in the range of £55,000 - £70,000, depending on your existing experience and skill set. In addition, we will add share options that allow you to significantly benefit financially as we increase the value of the company.

Our base is London, but a large part of our team is located around the globe. Although London-based employees are welcome to work from our WeWork office in Shoreditch (near Old Street), the development team will continue to have a "remote-first" culture. We're going through a period of significant growth right now but our top priority is to ensure we keep our fun but professional working environment. We'll consider remote applications for this role as long as you're within 2 hours of the GMT timezone.

Application process

We've designed our application process to be as fair as possible. We don't do "gotcha" questions or whiteboard exercises -- we want to learn what you're like to work with, not whether you've memorized quicksort!

  1. Introductory call with one of our engineers. This is a chance to get to know each other: we'll tell you about Intruder, and you can tell us a bit about yourself.
  2. We'll send you a take-home coding task. We'll be available to answer any questions you might have throughout.
  3. A video interview with 3-4 Intruder engineers where you talk us through your solution to the coding task. We might ask about your design decisions and tradeoffs, and maybe some more general questions.
