JOB DETAILS
 
Improbable believes in a future where new, virtual worlds will augment human experience & become as meaningful, lasting & rich as the physical world. We call this the Multiversal Self.

Our platform, SpatialOS, lets developers transcend the limits of regular computation, allowing swarms of servers running in the cloud to cooperate in order to simulate worlds far larger & more complex than any single server could.

At Improbable, you are surrounded by people who want to improve everything & everyone around them, & who compel you to improve yourself. We're motivated by the fulfilment of solving hard problems to achieve something profound & transformative.

Your Mission

will be to form a new team, with immediate opportunity for impact, on a brand new platform for decision making & virtual training.

You will be building a new class of application, critical to the Improbable Realities vision, significantly enhancing the security of nation states. Your users will be key figures in our national security organisations; with the tooling we build vastly increasing the capabilities for planning & meeting the threats of the modern world.

You will have the opportunity to contribute in the prototyping, iteration & design of this project from its earliest point, leveraging a modern stack including TypeScript, React, gRPC & Styled Components. You will help pioneer techniques for simulation playback, mapping capabilities, turn-based wargaming & much more.

Some of the most interesting challenges you may work on:

/ performant geospatial data rendering & analysis. We're taking cutting edge mapping data, & complex geospatial models & allowing decision makers in government to interact with them.
/ Building a highly configurable, high performant product, connecting multiples of users in a reliable fashion.
/ Writing scalable & reusable components for others engineers to adapt & use as our customer base expands


Outcomes

/ Leveraging your extensive front-end engineering experience, you will work with product designers, UX researchers to create a set of data intensive web applications that are customisable, intuitive & powerful to our users. We leverage Typescript but your experience may be rooted in Javascript & frameworks like Angular or Vue; that's fine by us!

/ Utilising your experience building complex web-applications, you will delight users to rapidly change the nature of wargaming & course-of-action analysis for a new generation of tacticians & commanders. We're keen to hear from engineers with a passion for delighting users.

/ You will become highly proficient in Typescript (if you're not already), interacting with our back-end services written in Golang & C# on some occasions. Previous experience in these technologies is not a prerequisite.

/ You will be a central part of delivering a strategic project for the UK government, growing to own parts of our core offering & expanding it to become a core product offering.
