Front End Developer - Remote (UK Timezone)
In this role, you will be responsible for the maintenance of our existing frontend codebase and the implementation of any new features on the frontend. You will contribute to key architecture decisions and bring your experience working on both early-stage and mature projects.
You should possess an eye for design and have an understanding of what makes user experiences enjoyable and engaging.
You will lead on all aspects of frontend testing, and be responsible for automated end-to-end testing as well as functional and integration testing.
As a remote role, you have to be totally comfortable working both independently and to specific requirements as directed.
You will be working on a high-performance, complex web application which will require you to understand and to solve interesting programming problems. As well as your design skills you will be a keen programmer with the ability to reason about complex systems and data intensive applications.
Working directly with a Co-Founder…
As a lean team, the benefit is that you will be working directly with one of the Co-Founders of ApeSpace who leads the development. This will include pair programming sessions and continuous, two-way feedback and communication.
You will need to be located in a similar time zone to our Co-Founder (United Kingdom). We give a lot of autonomy to our members, and it is vital that you are able to make timely and accurate decisions for yourself and communicate your needs to us, whilst also being able to work to requirements and deadlines.
This role has enormous potential for growth and there is scope for you to own the frontend as we grow as a company.
Interest in crypto/Web3…
Ideally, you will have an existing interest in cryptocurrency and Web3, but the role does not require any history of professional work in this area. Similarly, you will have an interest in working with complex and rapidly-changing financial data. We see this as a great opportunity for those looking to break into the crypto and Web3 industry. ApeSpace is set to become a global leading platform and this will be sure to open future doors for you.
Our frontend is built using the Svelte component framework with the SvelteKit application framework. It is deployed following CI/CD principles.
The role does not require previous experience with Svelte/SvelteKit - if you have worked with any other modern framework (React, Vue or Angular) you will be able to pick up Svelte quickly.
For you to know if this role is right for you, there are some “must haves”.
- Demonstrable experience with at least one frontend framework from: Svelte, React, Vue, Angular.
- Experience with data-intensive frontend development including live data feeds (APIs, WebSocket) and managing complex user interactions.
- Experience designing interfaces with HTML and CSS.
- Ability to lead our testing strategy
- Experience with Git and GitHub including managing branches and pull requests.
- Proven experience working as a Frontend Developer and/or a portfolio of work.
As we will be meeting a range of prospects for the role, these are some bonus skills that will rank highly with us:
- Svelte and SvelteKit/Sapper experience.
- Typescript experience
- TailwindCSS experience
- Cloudflare Pages and Cloudflare Workers or similar (Netlify, AWS Lambda etc.)
- Experience with frontend user analytics tools
- Any experience using Ethers.js or Web3.js
Expectations in the first 3 months…
Implement end to end and integration tests for our existing codebase Take the lead on building new features and pages for our web application Contributed to key decisions concerning the frontend architecture Contributed to design and ensure its consistency Created a library of reusable components for the application
- Submit CV - highlight the relevant experiences.
- On selection, we will reach out for an initial interview. This will be conducted by the Co-Founder responsible for Development.
- If there is mutual interest we will want to conduct a paid mini-project with us to help evaluate the fit for you and us. Simultaneously, if you can provide us with a portfolio of your work or open source code we can review.
- Offer is made and onboarding as soon as possible after offer acceptance.
What is ApeSpace:
ApeSpace™ is on a mission to build trading tools for DeFi, leveraging the fastest, most accurate blockchain data available.Our tools are designed to help our customers beat the market.
Background to ApeSpace™:
Born out of frustration…
ApeSpace™ was born out of the frustration of its Founders’ experiences with the popular price data analytics tools. Many of the charting platforms are providing “real-time” data that is anything but real-time. Often their “community ranking” sections, detailing the “trending” tokens are manipulated and even achieved for a fee - not reflecting the reality of a token.
Clients not users....
This leads users of these platforms to make decisions based on slow data (that’s not reflecting real-time) and taking positions on tokens that are anything but trending.
ApeSpace™ is designed to treat “users”, as they should be, like clients. We are client obsessed and are developing our tools to give the most accurate, timely and uncorrupted rankings of tokens in the DeFi space.
We are committed to detecting and eliminating scams in the DeFi space, including “rug pulls”, “honey pots” and “pump-and-dumps”. Our clients can use our tools, knowing that we are doing everything possible to help them beat the market and not fall prey to it.
**Who we are:
ApeSpace™ is a self-financed entity, housed under a British Virgin Company, called Innovative Fuse Ltd.. It has been a deliberate decision of the Founders to not bring outside funding to ApeSpace™. This allows us to maintain our own timetable, 100% control of our product and a commitment to never make decisions based on striving for a larger exit evaluation at the sake of a client’s experience while using ApeSpace™.
The three Founders are led by a visionary in the DeFi trading tool space, who has identified functionality and features that will minimize risk and provide the highest degree of safety for those new and experienced in the DeFi space.
The three Founders bring a wealth of experience, motivation and enthusiasm to bear on this project.
Between them, the Founders have over 25 years in entrepreneurship with multiple 7 and multi-8 figure businesses across a broad range of industries. In all the businesses the Founders have been involved in, there has been a focus on customer obsession.
We believe when a customer or client selects to utilize our services, we have an obligation to them, to provide the highest quality of service and care. This is not corporate jargon, but a core tenant that has guided multiple businesses we have worked on for over 20 years.
Experienced business leadership…
The Founders have been either founded, partnered or co-founded businesses that have included launching the first mobile phone and outdoor digital display interactive games - with clients including Quiksilver, Japan Fashion Week, MasterCard and Paramount Pictures, running a digital agency focussing on digital lead generation for the financial services industry, Partnering at an Executive Search firm specializing in building Executive teams for foreign capitalized companies operating in the Asia markets, co-founding online training and education businesses, co-founding a wedding services business conducting up to 400 weddings a month and partnering in a private multi-7 figures DeFi services business with the partners responsible for developing and deployment of services.
We bring decades of business leadership experiences and fiscal responsibility to ApeSpace™.
