We need a Front End Developer (Flutter) to join our mission and help us build exciting new digital experiences for customers to access better help, self-service experiences and customer service journeys. We’re building a platform that’s scalable, reliable and secure. We’re working on lots of exciting challenges, and you’ll dive right into projects helping consumers sort out access to Broadband and Mobile. 

Tribe you will be working with: Home Controls 

Home Controls is all about building services that allow customers to interact with their router - features like Speed Test and Hub reboot. Your squad, the Fix Squad will be building new greenfield products on MyEE App to make fixing and diagnosing issues with your router seamless for customers. 

What you’ll be doing?

  • Following and advocating best coding practices, continuous delivery and code reviews. 

  • Working with Headless CMS and capabilities like AEM to deliver robust and scalable applications. 

  • Building and prototyping highly performant applications in Flutter; and experience with state management systems like Cubit is a plus. 

  • Familiarity with Mocktail and Mojito for Unit testing is a huge benefit. Understanding of TDD and knowledge of testing fundamentals is a must. 

  • Experience in developing mobile applications in a production environment. 

  • Peer review and mentor other members in your squad. 

  • Post Release support + incident support. Be ready to support the occasional night releases with ground breaking updates to millions of customers.  

…but don’t worry we don’t expect you to know everything! 

What does success look like? 

  • Living the company values: Personal, Simple, Brilliant.  

  • Collaborate with the Tech Lead, Engineering Manager, and Chapter Leads in defining front-end technical standards and approaches. 

  • Champion Agile practices and Scrum principals to deliver highly scalable, robust solutions to millions of customers.  

  • You’ll understand our customers and the impact our product makes on their lives. 

  • Supporting and contributing to the transformation of our working culture and digital presence using agile methodologies. 

  • Mentoring developers and ensuring the achievement of team service level targets by taking ownership of completing all assigned work requests, including testing, quality checking, and delivering tasks within agreed timescales. 

  • Striving for continuous learning and improvement.  

  • Demonstrating the ability to work across multiple domains and brands while being a collaborative team player. Your work will often involve collaborating with different teams, squads, and tribes. 

  • Great communication skills and the ability to articulate complex, technical concepts to non-technical audiences. 

  • A strong product mindset and passion for user experience, you prioritize work with the customers in mind and make data-driven decisions to fix customer pain-points 

We build highly performant Mobile Apps on Flutter and Web Apps in React. For our backend we run a number of Java Spring Boot + Node JS microservices across a range of serverless Lambdas, EC2 instances and EKS pods.
