Front End Developer

at UENI Ltd in London

We’re a fast-growing London based app start up, with huge ambition. Our aim is to create a hyper-local marketplace, where local users can discover, book and rate local services around them, or if they travel abroad. Our state of the art platform allows local businesses to gain exposure to thousands of new local customers, simplifying the way users find and book the right services for them, based on their preferences.
Our founders, both educated at Harvard Business School, came from successful careers in consulting, private equity and business development to start UENI. They have created an environment that pushes creativity and challenges each member of the team to reach their full potential.

What we do
Smartphone technology at the heart of everything we do. Our key challenge is to accurately acquire venues and services at speed, to index them so they become searchable and to store them so our marketplace becomes dense with content.
We are teaching our machines to learn for themselves, to recognise unique offerings through association. In addition to the UENI marketplace, we have industrialised the app making process and produce customisable, white-label apps for our partners that allow them to have better communication with existing customers, and acts as a strong marketing tool to promote their business. Customisation of modules further increase engagement between business and user. Our software generates analytics that assess customer behaviour, allowing clients to steer the business decisions and run their business with increased efficiency.
