Front End Developer
Who We Are.
The Mirror team is determined to revolutionise professional services’ approach to their client due diligence. Mirror has been developed by working with several regulated firms (lawyers, accountants, financial services firms) across the UK, developing a platform that acts as the first line of defence against fraud. Our SaaS adds security to client onboarding through biometric identity verification, document validation, and AML checks. 
Mirror saves costs for our customers, since firms no longer need to manually request, nor check, documents from clients. We make onboarding a pleasant experience since it takes clients under five minutes to complete basic CDD on our mobile app, and we deliver an enhanced audit trail for our customers. 
We are excited about our next phase of growth: we have big plans and we are building our team to prepare for this exciting next step.

Why work with us?
We offer benefits, but it’s not what makes us, us.
Our team is determined. We love problem solvers, self-starters, and initiative in our team. We are all working towards the common goal of delighting our customers and we always welcome ideas that help us achieve that.
When you join Mirror, you will be a trusted part of our collaborative team - there is no micromanaging around here, and we encourage you to take ownership of your professional development too. You will always have support - our founders are excellent mentors, and keen people enthusiastic. There are no closed doors here, and questions are always encouraged - we want everyone to feel engaged and excited by what we’re working towards.
We know that life is for living, and want you to have the best work/life balance, so we’re open to discussing your needs, be it working in the office, wanting some days to work from home, or working abroad. Our working hours are flexible to suit the early birds, and those who might like a later start, or a cheeky gym session before work. We will always give you the best flexibility we can to allow you to bring your best self to work, and to give it your all. 
We’re a start up, and life is busy here. We all work hard, often to deadlines, but we know this is how start up life rolls, and we all embrace that. It’s a fast-paced environment, and if you like that lifestyle, you’ll love working with us!
And if the other stuff is important to you, then we have a brilliant, open office with a roof terrace in central London, and a quirky old Victorian four-storey house on the Isle of Man.  
A little extra: 
You’ll receive your company pension after three months. (London based only).
We offer 28 days holiday a year, plus the usual bank holidays, and after 12 months of being with us, you receive our monthly well being package. 
After 12 months of being with us, you receive our monthly wellbeing package, Your Wellbeing: Your Way, an annual sum of £1200, paid with your salary monthly, for you to spend on anything that helps you keep that life/work balance, anything from a gym membership, mindfulness classes or Netflix. 
We have a great company culture, it’s not just something we write about, it’s something we live and breathe. We celebrate the good times together, and support each other when times are tough. That’s good teamwork, and we believe that as a team, we can achieve anything. 
If we’re not advertising a role that fits your skill set, but you love the sound of where we’re headed, drop us a line, and your CV and tell us what you can bring to the table. We’d love to hear from you!
