This is a part-time role that will become full-time and be remunerated once we secure funding

Who we are
Bnkability is a London based early stage startup building a platform to ensure African trade transactions are creditworthy and projects are investment ready through automation. We are rethinking one of the most complex issues around lack of access to finance for African businesses trading globally.

We are building a team of individuals who are not afraid to question the way things are done or challenge we the Founders, who believe in a "we just haven't found a solution yet" way of thinking, who are curious, who are gracious and who understand that growth comes from hearing all opinions in the room including dissenting ones.

Who are we looking for?
We are looking for a qualified Frontend Developer with early stage startup experience to join us. You will be responsible for building the ‘client-side’ of our web applications. You should be able to translate our company and customer needs into functional and appealing interactive applications that delight our customers.

We expect you to be a tech-savvy professional, who is curious about new digital technologies and aspires to combine usability with visual design.

Ultimately, you should be able to create a functional and attractive digital environment for Bnkability, ensuring great user experience.

Our technology
Our application front-end uses the VueJS 2 framework with all client-side rendering and interacts with our back-end servers via a REST API. Bootstrap 4 drives our application layout, and we use TypeScript as our front-end language.


  • Develop, maintain and improve our web application (platform not website)
  • Write well designed, testable, efficient code by using best software development practices
  • Collaborate with Back-end Developer and UX Designer to improve usability
  • Write functional requirement documents and guides
  • Help Back-end Developer with coding and troubleshooting
  • Ensure high quality graphic standards and brand consistency
  • Stay plugged into emerging technologies and industry trends and apply them into our operations and activities

Must have skills

  • Experience in building complex static and dynamic browser applications, with a demonstrable portfolio of user interface design projects
  • Excellent UI design skills and the ability to translate these into HTML5/CSS. Preferably you will also have strong knowledge of JavaScript, and ideally have worked with TypeScript
  • Experience developing single page applications using a reactive framework (e.g. React, VueJS) and using RESTful APIs
  • Solid understanding of how web applications work including security, session management, and best development practices
  • Experience in Test & Behaviour Driven Development and development of front-end unit tests
  • Demonstrable creative and design orientated application to development
  • Strong organisational skills to juggle multiple tasks within the constraints of timelines and budgets with business acumen
  • Ability to work and thrive in a fast-paced startup environment, learn rapidly and master diverse web technologies and techniques

Highly desirable skills

  • Strong software engineering skills, including object-oriented design and an understanding of system design patterns (e.g. MVC)
  • Previous experience developing enterprise SaaS
  • Proficient knowledge of modern front-end software build tools (e.g. NodeJS, NPM, SCSS, etc.)

This is a part time role that will turn into a full time role when we have funding.

If the above sounds like you and you're interested in becoming part of our journey, join us.
