Why should you apply?

By joining the Front-end team at Spotted Zebra, you’ll work not just on functionalities, but also engage with Product team and have a chance to contribute with your ideas! Fully remote work, international team of seasoned professionals and amazing product used by FTSE 100 clients in UK.

Position details

Spotted Zebra is looking for someone to join their engineering team as a Senior Front-end Engineer. Your biggest challenge will be to take both an individual contributor and leadership role in the continued design and build of their core Skills Cloud, as well as the workforce and HR applications that sit on top of it. Their focus is on implementing an architecture that breaks down dependencies to allow for multiple innovative and decoupled engineering teams to deliver applications at high velocity.

Your role will include working with your globally distributed engineering, product, design, and management colleagues. You’ll have the opportunity to mentor junior members of the team but also the option to focus as an individual highly skilled contributor. Either way, you’ll bring the best out in others, support them, challenge them and laugh with them and as a result, you’ll make some lifelong friends and colleagues.

Project details

The Skills Cloud allows senior executives to assess the skills of their entire workforce, identify critical skills gaps, and take corrective action to address these gaps in hiring, development, and internal mobility efforts. Today, skills are taking center stage.

Apart from that, Spotted Zebra has been shortlisted for two prestigious IHR - In-house Recruitment awards – for “Assessment Solution of the Year” and “Technical Hiring”. The award nominations recognize the highly innovative, skills-based solution that was implemented for their Apprenticeship hiring in 2021-22.


The engineering team will be growing by 4x over the next 12 months so they are looking for senior engineers that can come in now and quickly develop into a team leadership role to support that growth and have ownership over one or more microservices. The role will have a high degree of direct coding and will also involve you in software architecture discussions.

Existing team: 

1x Head of Data Science
1x Head of Engineering
1x Senior Back-end Engineer
2x Senior Front-end Engineers
2x Junior Full-stack Engineers

Key Responsibilities

  • Collaborate with your senior colleagues in Engineering, Data Science, QC, and DevOps to help create the team structures, processes, and policies to support our goals

  • Be highly engaged with the Product Team, both contributing your ideas and helping develop your colleagues’ ideas 

  • Assist with prototyping, identify key technical risks and assist the team in validating (or invalidating) ideas quickly and accurately 

  • Own the outcome and focus on solving the problem and exceeding expectations rather than simply delivering features 

  • Ensure you and the team are geared to deliver continuously with high velocity 

  • Knock down barriers within the team, including minimizing technical debt and internal dependencies 

  • Have ownership over one or more microservices. You’ll get to focus on delivering reliable, clean, and efficient code by automating testing 


  • Spent the majority of your career as a front-end engineer. You have excellent experience with React and Typescript and ideally GraphQL (Apollo Client)

  • Exposure to SaaS is a business that has scaled across several products or modules, ideally with a common platform to deliver ‘consumer grade’ products

  • Experience and understanding of how to share components across multiple apps within one company

  • Ideally, you have worked with a microservice infrastructure in a high-availability environment

  • Worked in and helped scale engineering teams in excess of 10 individuals
