Senior Consultant, Full Stack Engineer – MDRx Job in United Kingdom

Job title: Senior Consultant, Full Stack EngineerMDRx

Company: Mishcon de Reya

Job description: Description


You love python or TypeScript, working in teams, and building real products. You love finishing things and are the sort of person who can help projects get over the line. You have a track record of delivering. You are curious, you ask lots of questions, and you are excited to learn new skills. You want to build real products from scratch through to MVP in disruptive technology spaces. You want the chance to work with data science, blockchain, or other novel technologies to solve big problems.

You are someone with an entrepreneurial, roll up your sleeves spirit, and an attitude of taking ownership, rather than waiting to be told to do things. You crave autonomy and opportunity for growth and are happy to be client-facing from time-to-time. You want to get ahead in your career and to grow alongside a fast-paced and exciting new business.

So, what will you actually be doing??

Within your first 30 days

  • You’ll be helping one of our teams deliver an in-flight project, you will get stuck in turning finishing an idea and turning it into a real product. You’ll be expected to collaborate with the product owner, designers, and other engineers to produce production grade code and novel solutions. You will be expected to get involved with:
  • Helping to improve code quality and test coverage
  • Building new features
  • Going from prototype to live
  • Solving complex problems
  • You’ll have regular catchups with the head of engineering and your peers to ask for feedback and help on anything and everything.
  • You’ll complete a Career Development Plan with your line manager to understand where you are in your career journey and to set learning and development targets.
  • You’ll participate in one engineering practise meeting.
  • You’ll attend four all-hands meetings, and so will have (at least virtually) met everyone at the company and will start to feel comfortable with your place in it.
  • You’ll eat tasty food at a new joiner’s lunch with the CEO.
  • You’ll have shipped lots of code?

Within your first 90 days

  • You’ll be working closely with other team members and taking autonomous decisions on project architecture and prioritisation.
  • You’ll have the opportunity to input into new MDRx processes as we grow and need them.

After 6 months

  • You’ll have likely finished work on your first project and will be building the next one.
  • If you don’t have experience with web3, machine learning, or artificial intelligence (which we don’t expect you to have) you’ll have learned to talk confidently about them with clients.
  • You’ll support team members in architecting new products.

After 1 year

  • Once you’ve been around for a while, you’ll be asked to mentor new engineers.
  • You’ll have the opportunity to be part of Discovery workshops and work with product managers to architect client strategies.
  • You’ll have a platform to shape MDRx’s engineering culture, helping to grow the team.

Haven’t done everything listed in the ‘first 30 days’ category yet? At MDRx we are dedicated to building a diverse, inclusive and authentic workplace, so if you’re excited about this role but your past experience doesn’t align perfectly with this job description, we encourage you to apply anyway. We’re far more excited by someone with great experience launching and running products than who has used all the specific libraries and languages we have in the stackÏ.


We’re a bit of an anomaly: a startup tech consulting company backed by an established law firm. The ‘startup’ part means there’s a lot of room for employee autonomy and opportunity to help design the company, whereas the ‘law firm’ part is why we have nice benefits, pretty conference rooms, and a runway to succeed.

We specialise in emerging tech, and we’re on a pretty hefty mission to change the face of consultancy, putting meaning behind digital transformation by delivering experiences for customers that create value and impact. That also means our culture really cares about people, not just profit, and definitely not just utilisation.

Our law firm origins allow us to combine leading business, tech, and legal expertise. That tends to look like building software that’s legally complex… but we go for the interesting stuff, which is why we often end up in Web3, Metaverse, or Data Science worlds.

We work with a variety of sizes of organisations, from funded startups to large companies to government agencies, but always try to deliver value in an agile manner.


Our clients

Due to our law firm origins, we tend to focus on building software that is legally complex…but we go for the interesting stuff, which is why we very often end up in web3. (That, and our CEO wrote the blockchain laws for the UAE). We work with a variety of sizes of organisations, from start-ups to large companies to government agencies, but always try to deliver value in an agile manner. The common thread is between our clients is that they want help to use new technologies enable disruptive business models and to contribute to the future.

The Technology

We work with two core stacks, React and TypeScript all the way down with a smart contract language like solidity, or React and TypeScript with a python back end for data heavy projects. We tend to solve problems for clients with non-commoditised technologies. That means you will get a chance to be exposed to everything from AI and machine learning, to the blockchain and smart contracts.


Hybrid, with flexible hours. We have a great office just outside the Holborn tube station that we ask you to come into twice a week. This includes team days several times a month, away days twice a year, and whenever we run in-person client workshops. Although we’re in a ‘hold on we’re blasting off’ phase of growth, we don’t ask our people to work taxing hours unless a project is in absolute crunch time.
