Front end Developer


As Front End Developer for the NADEX (North American Derivatives Exchange) Exchange Development group you'll be building and maintaining our real-time financial trading platforms - catering for fast-paced day traders and long-term investors, accessing the platform from desktop and mobile devices. You’ll be reporting to the Technical Manager for NADEX, but you’ll also be collaborating with other cross-functional teams to define, design and push new front-end solutions. With the sale of NADEX to Crypto.com this role offers a unique opportunity to work for two financial technology organisations in a short period of time. You'll transition to work for Crypto.com at the end of the TSA (Transitional Services Agreement) – expected to take around 18 months - where you'll continue your role for Crypto.com reporting to the Technical Lead of NADEX.


Who we are

NADEX is a marketing leading derivatives exchange in the United States, with a focus on offering short-term trading opportunities. Our mission is to provide unlimited options across the world’s largest financial markets. We’re constantly looking for talented individuals who challenge the status quo and think outside of the box. We are a diverse group of people, experience, and skillsets to deliver a robust trading experience for our customers. Join us on our mission to provide a wide range of opportunities across the world’s largest financial markets

As part of our hybrid working environment, you’ll split your time between home and the office, moving eventually to a fully remote setup. In this way, you’ll be able to enjoy a better work-life balance and always bring your best self to your role. At the office, you’ll have access to everything you’d expect from a world-class employer, such as a modern working environment, agile spaces, private quiet rooms and breakout areas.

The development teams for NADEX are primarily located in London. There are additional development teams in Bangalore and Krakow. The business functions are run primarily from our Chicago offices for NADEX.


Who you are

You’re upbeat and enthusiastic, and you have an open mind and a curious, can-do attitude. You, like us, understand the importance of collaboration and are driven to be the best in what you do. You want to be part of a company that embraces diversity and welcomes everyone with respect, regardless of race, age, sexual orientation, gender, identification, faith or culture. If you’re inspired by our way of working and can bring something new to our team of top-notch people, then you’ll find a home here.


You'll have at least 3+ years experience of building feature-rich, performant, single-page web applications which consume data from REST APIs. You’ll have practical experience using modern Javascript frameworks/libraries, preferably React and/or Ember.js.

You’ll be comfortable working in a TDD environment and writing code to a high standard of test coverage.

You'll be used to taking part in regular code reviews to support pull requests from others, that contribute to the codebase.

You’ll be familiar with SCM tools such as Git or Subversion.

You'll have a can do and flexible attitude and work ethic that will fit this rather unique opportunity.

It would be desirable if you have any of the following:

•TypeScript

•Experience working in an Agile team

•Experience working with CI/CD tools like Jenkins, Bamboo

•Experience working on Progressive Web Apps (PWAs)

•Experience with WebSockets

•Experience with AWS – particularly S3, Cloudfront.

Think clearly

We consider clarity of thought to be the single most important trait we look for in our colleagues We think about the message we want to deliver before we speak, and know what is important and what is not. We are concise and articulate, putting effort into making things simple and easy to understand.

Be resourceful

We go beyond the surface to gain a deep understanding of every issue. We always find a way to get things done with what’s available, but we are not shy about asking for help when it’s needed. We believe that great ideas can come from anywhere, regardless of seniority and experience.

Stay determined

We never give up, carry each other through hard times, and recognise grit in our colleagues. We understand that building a world-changing company is a monumental task, but we love every minute of it. We celebrate milestones together, recharge, and get back to work.

Dream big

We think big, take smart risks, and do things that have never been done before. We are not afraid to make tough choices that align with our long-term objectives. We know that it always seems impossible until it’s done.

Take ownership and be decisive

We are all empowered to take initiative, make the right decisions, and act as owners. We are committed to protecting our company culture and seek to bring in the best people we’ve ever worked with. We aim to surprise and inspire with the quality and speed of our decision-making.

Remain humble

We don’t seek the limelight and focus on doing what is best for the company and the users. We leave our egos at the door and learn from our mistakes, knowing that we are always stronger as a team. We think twice before spending, but are aggressive when it comes to investing in what matters.
