Careers

Front End / JavaScript Developer

Background

Meet & Engage is a fast-moving recruitment tech business. We have developed award-winning conversational technology used by employers like Amazon, Deloitte, Accenture and the Met Police. Our products include Live Chat, Candidate Experience Chatbots, and Timeline our onboarding platform.

We have a small but growing team of people, mainly based in the UK – some working remotely or at our HQ in Leicester (when permitted). Our clients are primarily UK-based, but we have an ever-growing presence overseas, particularly in the US, Europe and Asia Pacific. We work hard to deliver an excellent client experience and our team understand the market and our client base.

About the Role

Our platform provides real-time, group or one-to-one moderated text-based chat and chatbots, either hosted by us or embedded into the customer’s website using our plugin code.  We provide the ability to use webinar-like functionality such as sharing images, video and polls as well as livestreaming. Our customers use our platform to engage with candidates and applicants at various stages of their recruitment process – offering people the ability to see what a company is like before joining; providing a helpdesk to answers questions about their application, etc.

We then offer various APIs to our customers, to schedule and manage planned events; embed chat onto their own website; extract data gathered on the platform.
