Blis is an award-winning, global leader and technology innovator in location-based data, analytics, and advertising. We help brands such as McDonalds, Samsung, and Unilever to understand and reach their current and potential customers to drive real-world business outcomes. With 25 offices across 5 continents, and over 200 people on the team, we are a truly international company with both a global culture and scale. We’re headquartered in London, venture capital backed, financially successful and stable, and looking forward to continued growth. We’d love it if you could join us on the journey!

We are looking for brilliant, creative, curious, and experienced Frontend Engineers to support our Trading team and infrastructure. This team delivers internal and customer-facing SaaS applications for managing complex media and data campaigns, providing rich reporting and visualisations, and packaging deep analytics backed by our big data and machine learning technologies. We use technologies such as Angular, Javascript, Java, Scala, and C++. We’re constantly looking at how we can do things better. This is a growing team of 17 people across two product sub-teams with big responsibilities and exciting challenges ahead, as we look to reach the next 10x level of growth. Our employees are passionate about teamwork and technology and we are looking for someone who wants to make a difference within a growing, successful company.

At Blis, Frontend Engineers are more than just web developers, we value people who care about how things work and have a passion to make things better. They are creative problem solvers and solution builders. They typically write code in Javascript, using AngularJS, but have a knowledge of the language and ecosystem’s foundations that allows them to move between different frameworks or adopt new ones. Their understanding of our business and users helps us to innovate, deliver a truly useful experience, and ensure we continue to delight and astound. They participate in product and implementation strategy and they don’t just follow specifications. They have a talent for simplifying complexity, a strong analytical mind, and a proactive personality. Across the team, everyone supports each other through mentoring, brainstorming and pairing up. They do this while also optimising themselves and the team for long-lasting agility which is often synonymous with practicing Good Engineering. They are almost always adherents of Lean Development and work well in environments with significant amounts of freedom and ambitious goals.

This is a full-time, permanent position based in London.

The Role:

  • Innovate, implement, support, and iterate on our user-facing web applications.
