Frontend Software Engineer

Location    London (Uxbridge), UK, Oslo (Fornebu), Norway

Ava is a global technology company with offices in the UK, Norway, and the USA. We exist because we believe that we can create a better, smarter way to deliver security.

We inject intelligence into our approach to security and all our solutions. We help organisations see, understand, and act on their surroundings to protect their people, business, and reputation in real-time.

We know that the best way to meet our goals is with a diverse team, where everyone’s voice is heard. We’re proud that our company comprises 24 nationalities and we’re always looking to increase the variety of ideas and points of view at Ava.

We founded Ava Cyber in 2016 and Ava Video in 2018 and the two companies merged in 2020 to become a unified security provider with extensive capital investment from Ubon Partners.

About this position

You will work in our Cyber Frontend team to develop and improve our user interface. Your job will consist of using the latest technology and development tools to shape the look and feel of the product, in collaboration with our experienced design team. The Cyber Frontend team is responsible for researching, implementing and maintaining the web frontend of our cybersecurity product, Ava Reveal.

Together with our video security department, you will also get the opportunity to shape our unified security solution.

You’re not expected to have all of the following skills, but they will be useful in performing your job.

We are looking for someone who: 

  • Can demonstrate outstanding technical ability or has achieved excellent academic results from a recognised university
  • Takes pride in what they do and is as committed to airtight tests as to implementing shiny new features
  • Is a passionate technologist with impressive programming abilities
  • Is proficient in English.

  • JavaScript frameworks such as Vue, React and Angular
  • HTML/CSS/SVG
  • UX design
  • API design
  • Data visualization

All experience levels will be considered. We are looking for engineers from graduate level up to experienced architects.

We think you could be a good fit if you are a team player who thinks holistically, enjoys solving complex problems and thrives working autonomously, while not afraid to ask for input and learn from your teammates if you’re stuck.

Does this sound like you? We'd love you to apply, even if you don't meet 100% of the requirements and qualifications.

Ava graduate program

Your mentor will be responsible for overseeing your development through the first few years of your career and ensuring that you are given the necessary support and guidance. Your mentor will also be responsible for ensuring that you gain experience in a number of different areas.

From day one graduate software engineers will be given the opportunity to become responsible for designing and developing a key part of the product.
