About the project

We’re currently working to transform the planning system, making it simpler, more transparent, and more democratic. This includes the development of Plan✕, a platform that enables governments and planning authorities to publish planning legislation, policies and guidance as machine-readable code.

You will be working on a collaborative project to develop a prototype service for digital planning submissions, building modular service components, almost like micro-applications, sitting between the frontend and backend.

If you’re friendly, talented, self-motivated, an instinctive do-er and you enjoy working on projects that matter, we’d love to hear from you.


  • Coordinating with UX/UI designers, frontend and backend developers to build, test and maintain modular components.

  • Excellent problem solving, critical thinking and communication skills.

  • Thrives in an iterative and sometimes ambiguous R&D environment.

  • Love for clean, standards-compliant, tested, well-patterned, well-documented code


  • High level of proficiency working on React projects.

  • Skilled at shaping and manipulating data (state) in React projects.

  • Experience connecting components to JSON REST or GraphQL APIs

  • Comfortable working collaboratively (and remotely) using git.

Nice to haves

  • Any experience deploying projects to production

What’s in it for you

  • Working with a small, friendly, motivated team based in East London.

  • Remote and flexible work arrangements, with occasional on-site presence (min once per month).

  • Possibility of moving to a permanent role, or future opportunities to help us prototype, build, deploy and operate technologies that can genuinely transform society and the economy.
