A well-established energy provider in Glasgow City Centre is looking for a Front End React Developer to join their growing team. The company are one of the leaders in the industry striving to completely Green Energy and you'll have the opportunity to work in a team that has a pivotal role in that.

Over the last few years, the team have been focusing a lot on transitioning from Web Development to proper Software Engineering which means that you'll have the opportunity to work on the actual build of tools rather than just maintaining them and/or using them. The team also has plans to build some new products, so it's an amazing time to be joining them.

They use React for all their Front End Development and are therefore, looking for a Front End Developer that has strong commercial React experience. Like a lot of companies, they've made the transition from JavaScript to TypeScript so any prior experience of TypeScript would be a big bonus for them. With the move from Web Development to Software Engineering, they feel like the have a higher standard of technical environment which means you're likely to really improve your skills once you get into the company, which is never a bad thing.

The rest of their tech stack includes Redux, Next.js, Node.js, GraphQL, Java, Spring & AWS. These are some of the skills that you'll have the opportunity upskill in if that's something you're interested in doing of course!

Their teams are full of strong communicators as they tend to hire people that are keen on getting involved. You don't have to be the person that is leading every meeting but as long as you're keen on putting your own ideas forward, that's ideal for them. If you're passionate about Renewable Energy, then this could be the perfect role for you.

Another transition the team has went through has been the re-structure of their teams so that each team is better aligned to the products. With this, the teams will be a bit smaller which will give people the opportunity to be more involved with the direction of the products which should be appealing for anyone that wants to join the team.

The company would expect you to come into their Glasgow City Centre office at least once per week and can pay up to £55,000 for the role, depending on experience. They have an amazing benefits package on top of this which includes a 10% pension contribution, 10% performance related bonus and much more.

If you're an experienced React Engineer that is passionate about Green Energy, then please apply and/or get in touch with Jack Steven at Cathcart Technology.

Our clients


It was a breath of fresh air – She is professional and approachable and will be there to help you every step of the way. Other recruiters give you the hard sell and the ‘best friend routine’ to get you on board and then just leave you guessing, but not here… She’s the real deal

Solutions Architect – Glasgow

THE BEST test recruiter I’ve had the pleasure of working with, from start to finish. She provided me with training resources and is an organiser and participant in testing events. She really has taken the time to fully understand the testing principles.

Test Analyst – Aberdeen

I can say with total sincerity I’ve never dealt with a more professional, knowledgeable and personable recruitment firm in fifteen years of contracting. They helped my wife and I relocate to Edinburgh with our five month old son and it’s in no small part to their tips and recommendations that we’ve settled in so quickly.

Transformation Consultant – Leeds

Never have a I met a recruiter like him, who embeds himself in the community so thoroughly in a way that could only be genuine. From our conversations, he has shown an understanding of the industry I would expect from a local CTO.

MI Analyst – Bolton

I have had dealings with the majority of recruitment agencies in this country and beyond. He really stands out from the crowd and the IT industry would benefit from more people like him.

Software Developer – Glasgow

Compared to other recruiters I have worked with she seemed genuinely interested in helping me with my job search rather than just fulfilling quotas.

Software Developer – Lincoln

She even was able to help get a firmer offer as I was offered two roles on the same day. I felt she went over and above to get the best offer she could for me without selling myself short.

QA Engineer – Glasgow

He is the most honest, thorough and experienced recruitment consultant I have ever dealt with. If he can’t help you, he’ll tell you rather than spinning a yarn and putting you forward for jobs that aren’t suitable.

Technical Author – Edinburgh

Equal parts friendly and professional, never once coming across as simply going through the motions and made the whole thing as painless as possible for all parties

Software Developer – Glasgow

A friend looking after me, that’s how I felt. His friendly character made the whole process way easier and enjoyable, he also managed to get me one of the most interesting work opportunities. I’m really glad our paths have crossed.

Software Engineer - Edinburgh

He stood out in a world of poorly informed, unreliable and frankly annoying recruiters as a breath of fresh air.

Data Scientist – Manchester

I’ve never written a recommendation for a recruiter before, so it must show how impressed I am!

Software Developer – Northampton

She was friendly, communicative and informative, talked me through the process and gave me good advice at every stage.

Software Engineer – Manchester

Absolutely fantastic throughout my interview process, and I cannot recommend him highly enough! First of all, he is an absolutely brilliant communicator and extremely reliable. On top of all of his brilliant recruitment skills, it was amazing to see how genuinely excited he was for me when I received my offer. This truly conveyed to me how much he cares about his clients.

Software Engineer – Edinburgh

He goes out of his way to ensure you are prepared for your interview and I particularly appreciated his professional no nonsense approach to working with me to find a new position.
