Investec is a distinctive Specialist Bank serving clients principally in the UK and South Africa.

We combine a flat structure with a focus on internal mobility. If you can bring an entrepreneurial spirit and a desire to learn and collaborate to your work, this could be the boost your career deserves.

Research shows that some candidates can be reluctant to apply to a role unless they meet all the criteria. We pride ourselves on our entrepreneurial spirit here and welcome you to do the same – if the role excites you, please don't let our person specification hold you back. Get in touch!

What you will be doing:

Investec PLC is looking for a highly skilled front-end React Native developer to collaborate with a team of developers and UX designers to develop and maintain our private client mobile banking and investments app. You will be working on the design and the development of services from the ground up.

You will also be providing support and assistance to our client facing areas and product owners as a technology subject matter expert.

While beneficial, experience in using React Native is not essential for this role if you feel upskilling from React to React Native would be something that would interest you then please apply.

What you will need:

  • Demonstrable experience using React or React Native
  • Proficient in Redux (or similar) for state management
  • Solid JavaScript and TypeScript experience
  • Solid understanding of React Hooks, lifecycle, and performance considerations

Have fun with us doing this! 😊
