Front-End Engineer, Defence

London | Defence

Join our defence and national security business and you’ll be helping users plan and train to meet the most complex security threats in the world. Working alongside experts in AI and Machine Learning, computational modelling and distributed systems, you’ll be putting multiplayer technology to life-saving use.

Your mission will be to join a growing team as a mid-level engineer, with immediate opportunity for impact, on a brand new platform for decision making and virtual training.

You will be working on customer projects building web applications for operational planning, tactical training, and decision support. We are very early in our journey and there are various parts to this that are worth unpacking.

These applications allow users to create and design plans for scenarios to be simulated.

Secondly, our applications are the interface to the simulation engine. Users can run complex models, many times, at scale. A critical part of value we deliver for clients is letting them leverage complex data generated by the models for better analytics. This involves designing and building solutions to how we visualise information, both geospatially and temporally.

Areas for Impact

  • You will work closely with product managers, designers and scientific modellers to help determine and design what we will build.
  • Write coherent, logically abstracted and well structured code.
  • Collaborate closely and effectively with members of other engineering teams to find the best path to delivering a high quality solution.

  • Experience engineering Single Page Web Applications with a modern framework (React, Vue, Angular etc.)
  • Experience working with back-end systems
  • Typescript, React, Redux, GoLang are a plus but not mandatory
