Lead Frontend Engineer

RemoteMalta, Saint Julian's, EuropeClient Team

Job description

At BlueLabs we're combining the buzzing world of sports betting with modern tech and a great engineering culture. We own our multi-tenant sports betting platform end-to-end. It consists of tens of microservices in a handful decoupled domains, orchestrated by a terraform-provisioned Kubernetes cluster, achieving high scalability thanks to an event-driven architecture based on Apache Pulsar. We follow modern CI/CD and agile methodologies to deploy into production multiple times per day and use Datadog to monitor our infrastructure and applications.

We're now looking for a Lead Frontend Engineer to join our Client Team. You'll manage our team of frontend engineers and play a key role in the development of our player-facing web and mobile applications using latest technologies. We're open to experiment with new and emerging technologies - our application is built using SvelteKit and we utilise TypeScript for the entire codebase to improve code quality and reliability.


  • Manage and lead our 4-strong frontend engineering team implementing robust and rich, usable, frontend experiences
  • Oversee the scope and implementation of new features and systems that are reliable, performant, and secure at scale
  • Spend the majority of your time with actual engineering work, contributing to the codebase
  • Collaborate with software engineers, product managers and designers in an autonomous, supportive team environment
  • Solve problems in a highly technical platform that is onboarding tens of thousands of new players every month
  • Take ownership of the whole software development life cycle - architecture, development, testing, deployment, monitoring
  • Take part in our on-call rotation every few weeks — we build it, we run it
  • Mentor other engineers on best practices, code design considerations, and quality
  • Improve our planning, development, and deployment processes to help you and your team members

However, that's not all! At BlueLabs, we encourage you to contribute wherever your interests take you — and shape your role and our product accordingly.


The compensation range for this role is €70,000 to €100,000 annually, depending on your background and experience. We encourage you to read our Recruitment FAQs for further details. In addition to the monetary compensation, we provide a number of perks to all team members, including a shiny new MacBook 16" M1 Pro or Linux laptop.
