Users interact with the Sennen system via our custom-built UI framework, this dynamically renders pages at runtime from dashboard definitions. These dashboards are made up of custom and open source React components as well as components built with the framework itself. Data is transported via from a multitude of databases and APIs.
You'll be building reusable software components to form the tools that our users, and developer colleagues, need. There's an ambitious roadmap, and lots of new stuff to build!
We offer as much autonomy as you're ready for. It's a flat structure team and Agile approach, in a fast-moving company with a supportive culture.
