Shiny Developer

Type: Full Time   |   Location: Bristol/Chippenham/London   |   Posted: 27/08/2020


At Mango, visualisation is a fundamental aspect of what we deliver to our customers.  We believe that strong visualisation means business users are better able to understand, interpret and use data to inform decision making. It is a critical part of the data science lifecycle and an increasingly important component of our service offer. To continue our growth we are now looking for a number of developers with experience in designing and building Shiny applications to leverage data science models.

As a part of Mango Solutions, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Create stunning visualisations for our clients and develop bespoke Shiny or alternative apps
  • Work on-site with senior data engineers, scientists and customers to understand data problems, identify needs and develop solutions
  • Engage our community through sharing your knowledge and expertise through writing blog posts and presenting at conferences
  • Keep up to date with technologies and current trends

What are we looking for?

Required Skills

  • Keen eye for great User Experience in application development
  • Detailed knowledge of Software Development Life Cycle
  • Proficient understanding of code versioning tools, such as Git
  • Experience with Agile (Scrum and/or XP) is a must
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • The ability to consult – quickly gaining the trust of a client, keeping them involved throughout the project, delivering to their definition of success
  • Passionate and self-driven
  • Willingness to travel to client sites & other offices, if/when required

 Required Experience 

  • 2 years’ experience of front-end development with Shiny as a core capability


  • Experience of consulting projects (or workstreams within large programmes)
  • Experience with other visualisation tools such as D3

If you’re a Front-End developer but haven’t yet focused on Shiny then we’d still be interested to hear from you. For the right candidate, we can help you grow and develop into the Shiny Developer we’re looking for.
