If the thought of designing, building, and delivering a new proposition in IG’s new incubated business excites you, then please read on. 


Senior React Native Mobile Developers Join the game-changers

We are looking to add a Senior React Native Mobile Developer to our existing Mobile team within this fully funded incubator project. In joining us, you would become key members of the engineering team that is responsible for the full application lifecycle and launching simultaneously on both iOS and Android.


From developing new innovative solutions to problem-solving complex integrations, you will support the design, build, and delivery of this global greenfield App.

This is a senior role, where you will drive the engineering choices, tech roadmap, and development for our brand-new cross-platform app. This role could include leadership responsibilities, where you would lead a squad of developers in providing a continuous stream of functionalities.

The scale of the opportunity and the challenges ahead are both exciting and significant. We are focused on finding people who enjoy working with and mentoring others. 


What you will do:

  • As part of a network of teams, you will be working alongside other technical specialists, team leads and developers, as well as design, product, and commercial business functions. It is essential that applicants are open and committed to a collaborative approach to problem-solving, achieving goals, and the delivery of a market-leading app.
  • Building a best-in-class client experience.
  • Helping launch the App simultaneously on both iOS and Android.
  • Possibility to drive and participate in technical decisions for the application.
  • Possibility to help and mentor team members.


Who we’re looking for:

You’re curious about things like the client experience, the rapid developments in tech, and the complex world of fintech regulation. You’re also a confident, creative thinker with a knack for innovating. We know that you know every problem has a solution. Here, you can try new ideas, and lead the way in creating inspiring experiences for our clients and everyone around you.

We don’t fit the corporate stereotype. If you want to work for a traditional, suit-and-tie corporate that just gives you a pay cheque at the end of the month, we might not be for you. But, if you have that IG Group energy and you can stand behind what we believe in, let’s raise the bar together.

To thrive in this position, we are looking for applicants who are excited to work on a greenfield app in its early development stages and help iterate the product in an agile development team. As we are early in the design and build phase, this role is suited to candidates who are open to supporting the development of middleware and backend services that enable an optimised mobile experience, such as edge services and backend for frontends. 


What you’ll need for this role:

  • Extensive experience in React Native development. With several apps in production.
  • Knowledge of React state management tools (Redux, MobX) and data fetching utilities (Redux-toolkit, React Query).
  • Experience working in Agile teams.
  • You have experience developing solutions that handle user authentication, real-time dynamic data, and transactional logic.


Bonus. Experience or expertise in:

  • Pixel-perfect components, design systems or animations
  • Automatic testing suites, including e2e.
  • The leadership of teams of developers.
  • Experience building and maintaining CI/CD pipelines.
  • Push Notifications. 


How you’ll grow:

When you join IG Group, we want you to have more than a job – we want you to have a career. And you can. If you spot an opportunity, we want you to chase it. Stretch yourself, challenge your self-beliefs, and go for the things you dream of. With internal and external learning opportunities and the tools to help you skyrocket to success, we’ll support you all the way.

And these opportunities truly are endless because we have some bold targets. We plan to expand our global presence, increase revenue growth, and ultimately deliver the world’s best trading experience. We’d love to have you along for the ride.


The perks:

It really is more than a job. We’ll recognise your talent and make sure that you can still have a life – at work, and outside of it. Networks, committees, awards, sports and social clubs, mentorships, volunteering opportunities, extra time off… the list goes on.

  • Flexible working hours & hybrid working 
  • Home office equipment reimbursement  
  • Performance-related bonuses
  • Private medical cover for you and your family/partner (Medicover)
  • Multikafeteria system (you can choose a multisport card, vouchers, etc.) 
  • Life insurance (Generali) 
  • Employee-led LGBTQ+, Women’s, Black, and Parents & Carers networks with an annual budget for organizing events & projects that foster an open, diverse, and inclusive culture  
  • Career-focused technical and leadership training in class and online, incl. unlimited access to LinkedIn Learning platform
  • Well-being events as well as Employee Assistance Programme
  • Summer picnic, New Year party and other social events  
  • 3 additional days off a year - 1 to celebrate your Birthday and 2 for voluntary work 😊


Where you’ll work:

We follow a hybrid working model; we reckon it’s the best of both worlds. This model also feeds into our secret ingredients for innovation: diversity, flexibility, and close connection. Plus, you’ll be welcomed into a diverse and inclusive workforce with a lot of creative energy.

Ask our employees what their favourite thing is about working at IG, and you’ll hear an echo of ‘our culture’! That’s because you can come to work as your authentic self. The things that make you, you – like your ethnicity, sexual orientation, faith, age, gender identity/expression or physical capacity – can bring a fresh perspective or new skill to our business.

That’s why we welcome people from various walks of life; and anyone who wants to help us realise our vision and strategy.

So, if you’re keen to connect with our values, and lead the charge on innovation, you know what to do.
