About Handelsbanken’s digital unit
At Handelsbanken, we are building new digital and customer-centric banking services that, together with our digital office, will cater to all digital needs and inquiries from our customers. We are a unit that works as one team with a single purpose; to build the best digital banking solution for both mobile and web.

Handelsbanken's digital unit is established as a modern, agile organization, with ambitions to set a new standard for customer experience in digital banking and deliver leading mobile and online banking solutions to the Norwegian retail market. To succeed in this, we are now looking for a Lead Frontend Engineer with a solid foundation in leadership and frontend development who can drive the success of our Frontend Engineers and our digital solutions.

We have ambitious goals, work at a fast pace with lots of energy, and the entire bank is fully invested in the success of the digital leap being taken. We also continuously work on diversity among our employees and want to have groups of individuals with different experiences, nationalities, genders, and personalities to build a strong team.

What will your responsibilities be as a Lead Frontend Engineer?
As a Lead Frontend Engineer, you will take on a dual role, combining leadership and hands-on technical responsibilities. You will lead a team of 6-8 Frontend Engineers and Senior Frontend Engineers, ensuring their development and the delivery of high-quality code. While leadership is your primary focus, you will also engage in programming and architecture decisions. Your day-to-day will consist of both managerial duties and technical tasks, including code reviews and mentoring team members to enhance their skills. Our tech stack includes Typescript, React and React Native and is hosted on Microsoft Azure.

To thrive as a Lead Frontend Engineer with us, you should enjoy working in an organization which is evolving and changing continuously and be proactive in making your mark on our digital banking solution. You will be part of a cross-functional, full-stack setup, working closely with product, backend, frontend, quality engineering, and testing teams to ensure end-to-end feature delivery.

Most importantly, we are looking for someone who is motivated by making a positive impact in a traditional industry leading a team of Frontend Engineers. We are building a brand new digital banking application that is transformative to Handelsbanken, and we want you to take ownership of this journey.
