Stuff here is getting exciting.  As we scale and grow into Europe we need keen and ambitious FEDs to help us keep rolling out world firsts – on time and on target. It goes without saying that you’re a dedicated FED and you can be trusted to deliver, but you will also be comfortable with working in a product-led environment and recognise how important the user experience is to everything we do.

You

Banging out corporate websites doesn’t interest you and its quite likely come from an agency background that has kept you on your toes - but now you need something a bit more exciting. You will have 3+ years’ experience at a junior/mid level and have probably been managing your own workflow for a while

Core duties

  • Developing and maintaining the frontend web views powering the product
  • Working with back-end developers to integrate RESTful APIs
  • Delivering pixel-perfect visual code, online and inline
  • Managing workflow with project managers to ensure smooth delivery
  • Contributing to the general standard of front-end within the company
  • Taking ownership of improving and maintaining this to a good standard
  • Thoroughly review own and peer's tests - minimising issues picked up by the team
  • Working with UX design team to ensure the front-end views are consistent with the style guide

Vital experience

Please don't try and blag these or tell us you will pick them up quickly - we don't have time to teach the following!

·       Advanced JavaScript and ES6+, especially React

·       Advanced HTML5 and SCSS, with excellent attention to detail

·       Knowledge of AWS Lambda, CloudWatch and CodeBuild‍ desirable but not required

·       Version control (we use Git)

·       Working with RESTful APIs

·       Experience writing unit tests to build robust code (we use React Testing Library, Jest and Cypress)

·       Writing code with scalability, readability and maintainability in mind

·       Experience working with a chatbot would be beneficial
