Software Engineer - Frontend


We're developing Turn, the product that allows social impact organisations to have private, personal, guided conversations that change behaviour at scale.

Turn is a web application that makes it easy for social impact organisations to:

  • Learn from the world’s best Chat for Impact services
  • Setup and run a chat service themselves
  • Track the impact of their chat service in real-time

We work with small and large non-profits, social enterprises and governments who are all trying to change the world for the better, using our product. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Turn delivered a combined total of 60 million messages to over 15 million people through WHO HealthAlert to provide people with instant and easily access to the most accurate and up-to-date information shared by their governments and health organisations.

Our product has come a long way in a short space of time, with a small but brilliant team. The team is now growing and we’re looking for another Front End Developer to help us shape and build the product to grow and deliver on our behaviour change goals. In the past year, our team have loved seeing their work immediately being used in high-impact services.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a funded startup in its founding years and experience and shape the growth of a product first hand. We are a global team working remotely and asynchronously. If you’re highly skilled with innovative, unique development ideas, and a creative, troubleshooting mindset, we’d like to hear from you.

The particular skills we’re looking for include:

Product Development

  • Implement a fast, React based, frontend application backed by GraphQL that helps facilitate conversations with millions of individuals to help achieve better health outcomes
  • Ensure the application works in low resource environments
  • Collaborate closely with backend developers to ensure the data needs of the frontend are encoded in the backend applications
  • Develop interface designs into a fully functional front end experience
  • Develop new user-facing features that enhance the product
  • Build reusable, testable, code and libraries for future use
  • Ensure the technical feasibility of our UI/UX designs with regular user experience testing to ensure we’re on track

Product Architecture

  • Advise on and/or contribute to new or emerging technologies that might be relevant to Turn

External Communications

  • Evangelise the product vision through conference presentations, media interviews and other social media interactions
