Small, tight, close knit team, made up for 7 technical and 2 creative team members – with the Technical Director overseeing the operation.  You will need to hit the ground running immediately so have to have 3 years experience with JavaScript Front End development using either React or Angular.

The Role

Our Client is building an array of ambitious JavaScript Web Applications and we need your help. You will be working closely with the design and front-end team to deliver new functionality and maintain existing codebases.

You will need to have a strong understanding of JavaScript and the modern frontend landscape. The pace of change will be seen as an exciting challenge instead of a constant nightmare.

You are motivated to combine the art of design with the art of programming. Responsibilities will include translating conceptual designs and templates into working elements of the application.

  • Excellent understanding of client-side scripting and JavaScript frameworks
  • Excellent understanding of modern front-end libraries such as ReactEmber, Angular or Vue
  • Excellent knowledge of JavaScript testing frameworks
  • Good understanding of asynchronous request handling, partial page updates, and AJAX
  • Basic knowledge of image authoring tools, to be able to crop, resize, or perform small adjustments on an image. Familiarity with tools such as Sketch or Photoshop is a plus.
  • Proficient understanding of cross-browser compatibility issues and ways to work around them.
  • Ensure that all user input is validated before submitting to back-end

  • Flexible working available, some people work 8-4.30pm, 9-5.30pm and 10-6.30pm
  • Also the option to work from home – happy to consider someone who wants to work remote 3 days per week and work from the office 2 days per week
