Company description

At Ava, we started with the people. A small core group of engineers got together to find an industry where we could merge innovation, passion, and simplicity to help people reach their greatest potential. Their attention was drawn towards the world of security—indispensable to modern work, yet often overlooked and taken for granted. Organizations needed the tools to understand if something was happening in real-time to keep their people safe and their data and premises protected.

We started Ava Cyber in 2016, and Ava Video in 2018, and the two companies merged in 2020. Four years later, we’ve embarked on the path to delivering unified security to enterprises around the world.

We are headquartered in Uxbridge (London) and have teams in the US, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Germany, Belgium, and Poland.

Job description

Introduction

At Ava, we started with the people. A small core group of engineers got together to find an industry where we could merge innovation, passion, and simplicity to help people reach their greatest potential. Their attention was drawn towards the world of security—indispensable to modern work, yet often overlooked and taken for granted. Organizations needed the tools to understand if something was happening in real-time to keep their people safe and their data and premises protected.

We are headquartered in Uxbridge (London) and have teams in the US, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Germany, Belgium, and Poland.

Ava Security was acquired by Motorola Solutions Inc in March 2022.

About this position

We are looking for a passionate and experienced frontend developer to join our growing team to help to develop our Web app written in Vue and Typescript. Experience with these technologies is not required, assuming you have experience in related technologies such as Javascript or React. If you care about creating great user experiences, writing solid and maintainable code, and continuously improving existing code then you are the person we are looking for!

Our UIs incorporate a wide range of interesting and technically challenging features that you will help to shape and improve:

  • Rendering high resolution video in a performance critical environment.
  • Working with large volumes of data in a performant way.
  • Designing and implementing new UI components.
  • Investigating and improving performance and scalability as new features are added.

At Ava, you will make a defining contribution to the development of our new disruptive product, by:

  • Writing high-quality code with creativity and passion.
  • Conceptualising, designing and following up on implementation of new functionality in close collaboration with product management, designers, and frontend and backend developers.
  • Improving current work, in regards to processes and tools.
  • Staying up to date with the latest developments within design and technology, and suggesting short and long-term solutions.

Although we are looking for someone who wants to focus completely on our front end application, there is scope for using technologies across the stack, including in our mobile applications using Swift and Kotlin, and other tools to aid development that are written in Go.

About you

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:

  • Is passionate about modern web development, with experience in either Javascript or Typescript.
  • Has knowledge of and experience working with Web frameworks such as Vue, React, or Angular
  • Can demonstrate outstanding technical ability.
  • Wants to design and implement new functionality in close collaboration with colleagues who work with product, user experience and backend.
  • Wants to improve and optimise our application in terms of maintainability, performance and security - both from customer feedback and using your initiative.
  • Loves staying up to date on technology and is happy to suggest short-term and long-term improvements.
  • Has experience testing applications and using frameworks such as Jest, Mocha, or Cypress.
  • Can suggest new ideas to the team to help us improve the product, and as developers.
  • Is proficient in English.

We expect you to be proactive, take ownership of the product and make decisions accordingly. You will have room to explore new technologies and shape development according to your own wishes.

We are looking for a team player who enjoys solving complex problems and thrives working autonomously, while not afraid to ask for input and learn from their teammates if they’re stuck.

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

What we offer

  • Attractive salary and benefits
  • Flexible working hours
  • A remote-friendly organisation, with colleagues working remotely either part or full-time
  • A startup with solid financial backing and long-term horizon
  • Travel opportunities, as we have R&D offices in London & Oslo and Sales offices in the US
  • An international group of colleagues, working on anything from hardware, software, user experience, artificial intelligence, machine learning, audio/video processing, and analytics, mechanical, and industrial design.
  • Newly refurbished and modern offices with disabled access and good transport links at The Charter Building in Uxbridge, London, UK.
