About TrustedHousesitters

TrustedHousesitters is a global marketplace that is disrupting the pet care and travel industries. We connect a community of home and pet owners with sitters to solve a common two-sided problem - pet care and cost-effective travel. Customers join for one annual fee. After that, sits take place as a trust-based, money-free exchange that sees owners enjoy worry-free travel while our sitters enjoy the company of pets and unlock a world of unique accommodation.

We enjoy exceptional customer retention rates driven by the fact that our owners and sitters realise the amazing value and incredible experiences we can facilitate. We have more five-star reviews on Trustpilot than any other pet care or travel company.

We're fully in scale-up mode and have grown to be the only global platform of its kind. In the last few years, we’ve consistently achieved high year-on-year growth, and have remained resilient throughout the COVID-19 crisis. The USA has become our biggest market, followed by UK and Australia.

We've recently made the transition to a remote-first business, however, we've retained an HQ in central Brighton which is available for collaborative working.

We employ software engineers, product managers and designers and data scientists who operate in agile squads. Our marketing team have been focussing on growing our reach in the USA and globally, and our membership services team provide outstanding levels of support to our customers.

We are transforming the pet care and travel landscape. We believe we offer the best solution and our team are united by our commitment to delivering an enriching experience for our customers and having a positive impact on the lives of their pets.

About the Role

We're looking or an experienced product-centric Frontend Engineer to join our "Acquire & Convert" cross functional squad.

You will work with product managers, designers and QA's to build testable, maintainable, accessible, and performant user interfaces.

You will contribute to ideation and product discovery sessions, providing technical input on the MVP design and implementation of features and A/B tests.

You will contribute code reviews, support and mentoring to other members of the squad, to help them accomplish team goals.


  • Extensive commercial experience in building performant, accessible, web applications; it’s not so much about the number of years and more about the skills and knowledge you have, however, for this role you need to be able to work independently and support other less experienced team members.
  • Fluent in JavaScript, HTML, and CSS.
  • Extensive experience using React/Redux.
  • Intimate knowledge of cross-browser and cross-device development.
  • Ability to write high-performance, reusable code for UI components, including appropriate testing.
  • Ideally, you have experience working with the performance profiling and debugging tools in your web browser of choice — tools like Chrome DevTools, Lighthouse, WebPageTest, and others.
  • Great communication skills with an open and collaborative mindset both within and outside your team.
  • You must be located in a timezone two hours ahead of or behind the UK.

Nice to have

  • Experience building mobile apps in React Native, and native Android (Java/Kotlin) and iOS (Objective-C/Swift).
  • Backend development experience in Python Django or similar.
