Frontend Engineer

Job description

Gyana is looking for some super-stars to move on to the next big stage.


The Opportunity

We are in need of a product-focused frontend engineer who is confident across our technology stack of CSS, React and Typescript.


The Role

This is a single commando role with leadership potential.

You will be working on an existing market-validated product, with a prioritized backlog of issues groomed and ready for you to hit the ground running from your day one.


To begin with, your day-to-day will be working through this backlog. However, you’ll be growing into a leadership role from day one, working in close quarters alongside the CTO, product designer, software engineers, and data scientists team to build a new kind of user experience for data science.


You’ll be integral to our ability to meet the requirements of product scale-up, and your technical and product contributions will profoundly influence the direction the product takes in the long-term. Passion for what Gyana is aiming to achieve will go a long way.
