Senior Frontend Engineer - Skyral Modelling & Development



Improbable Defence is seeking a Frontend Engineer to work on their software platform that enables the creation of synthetic environments for defence and national security personnel. The successful candidate will work with a team of experts to develop a design system, produce reusable client layers, and own the frontend architectural and integration decisions. The ideal candidate should have significant experience with JavaScript SPA frameworks, containerised deployments, and implementing CI/CD practices. Improbable is committed to fostering a healthy culture and values diversity, inclusion, and belonging.

Job description

We build synthetic environments and simulations of huge scale and complexity, which help defence and national security personnel make faster and more informed decisions. You’ll work alongside a team of experts, combining our innovative technology for virtual worlds with computational modelling, data analytics and distributed systems. Join us and help build the virtual worlds defence experts use to plan, train and make life-saving decisions in – to keep us all safe in the real world.

We believe that the grand-scale adoption of synthetic environments by governments and international institutions will give rise to a powerful capability for global good.  New levels of whole-force preparedness and the harnessing of previously unattainable foresight will ultimately prevent states from stumbling into war; contributing to a more secure and prosperous world and bringing about the end of unnecessary human conflict.

Improbable Defence develops a software platform that enables the creation of these synthetic environments, with the aim of providing truly full spectrum synthetic training and planning platforms.  This will ultimately make defence users more effective when deployed on modern, multi-domain operations and plummet the cost of military preparedness.

Your Opportunity:

    • Get involved across all aspects of the engineering workflow both as a contributor and lead/reviewer. This includes reviews, architecture design documentation, prototyping, concepting, technology selection and data strategy.
    • Coaching and mentoring a team of engineers, guiding them towards best practices.
    • Working with designers to develop a design system consisting of reusable component libraries, style guides and guidelines.
    • Produce reusable client layers that facilitate access to other Skyral services.
    • Own the frontend architectural and integration decisions for the Skyral Modelling & Development area.
    • Understanding our users’ current requirements, and anticipating future needs.
    • Supporting our customers with integrating our components into their solutions.

Why You're Made For This:

    • You have significant experience with one leading JavaScript SPA framework (React preferred) and associated libraries (e.g. Redux, RxJS) and tooling (e.g Webpack/Rollup, Jest, Yarn)
    • Expert understanding of JavaScript including the DOM, event loop and progressive enhancement without using a framework
    • Experience with containerised deployments (e.g. Docker, Kubernetes)
    • Experience implementing CI/CD practices such as git branching, automated tests and automated deployment pipelines
    • You have excellent engineering and problem-solving skills and are able to design solutions under product, technology, scientific, and security constraints.
    • Exposure to Node.js is a benefit.
