Senior Frontend Engineer

Do you dream of stepping into a role where you can have a real impact on the excellence of a product and push the boundaries of what's possible in the frontend world?

Here’s your chance!

At Lucinity, we connect technology and purposeful design to help our customers discover money laundering faster and smarter while understanding their customers and implementing streamlined compliance. Our intuitive systems are simple to use, complementing the skills and ingenuity of compliance professionals.

We are on a mission to help banks and other fintechs fight money laundering, making it more difficult for criminals to do their shady business. And you may ask: “How do I fit into the picture”?

Great question!

We’ve got a fantastic team of people that have developed products making waves in the industry. However, in the digital realm, a product's success isn't just about backend logic – it's about user engagement, intuitive design, and interactive experiences. We need your expertise in frontend development to craft pixel-perfect interfaces and dynamic interactions, ensuring our users have a delightful and seamless experience.

As a Senior Frontend Engineer, your responsibilities are:

  • Drive the design, development, and optimization of responsive user interfaces.
  • Implement and maintain reusable frontend components and libraries to ensure consistent and high-quality user experiences across our products.
  • Optimize applications for maximum speed, scalability, and cross-browser compatibility.
  • Working alongside your fellow developers to integrate user-facing elements with server-side logic.
  • Staying updated with the latest frontend technologies and techniques to ensure the continual improvement of our platform.
  • As a Senior Engineer, you mentor, guide and support your peers. Your influence extends beyond your immediate team as you actively foster cross-team collaboration.
  • Producing comprehensive documentation and providing support to development teams.

You will shine in this role if:

  • You are user centric. Everything within Lucinity is about the user and the user experience. We, therefore, consider the user at every step of the way when designing our products.
  • You are enthusiastic about new technologies. The world is spinning faster every day, and you keep a close eye on where it’s headed. Anything that will make us more effective and efficient tomorrow gets you excited.
  • You're passionate about clean and maintainable code. You understand that well-structured, commented, and tested code ensures better collaboration and futureproofing of applications.
  • You possess a keen eye for detail. Every pixel matters to you, and you ensure that every interface looks and functions exactly as intended.
  • You’re not afraid of asking why, what for, what if, etc. You consistently seek deeper understanding, challenge existing patterns, and think critically to enhance user experience and application performance.

What's in it for you?

At Lucinity we are intentionally building a culture we love. A culture built on trust, high performance, and continuous learning.

  • Feel at home around passionate, kind, talented and driven people? Then you'll fit right in!

  • Like having fun? Great, we do too! We Make Money Good and we have fun doing it. Our very own Fun Squad makes sure there's always plenty of varied activities planned both locally and online.

Our headquarters are in beautiful Reykjavík, and we have a hub in majestic London, but our workforce is distributed. We do most of our talking via Slack and Zoom. Our culture is built around a hybrid work environment and your ability to decide where you believe you do your best work.

Our frontend tech stack is; ReactJS, NodeJS/TypeScript, GraphQL, Docker, Azure DevOps (CI/CD). Being an expert in everything listed is absolutely not necessary, because we know that great engineers adapt.

Why should you join us in Making Money Good?

Working at Lucinity means you are contributing to a better world. We empower humans whose responsibility is to identify and investigate potential money laundering transactions by providing the tools that take care of the heavy lifting for them, so they can let their talent run free.

We want to make sure everyone at Lucinity feels like they belong. What will support that mission is if our teams reflect the diversity of the world around us. And that starts with you! We embrace people from all backgrounds and celebrate diversity of thought.
