Front End Developer (junior)

We’re definitely not a digital agency, but we do a fair amount of front-end work for both our clients and ourselves; prototype interfaces, dashboards and mobile and desktop visualisations are an important part of the data we gather and the technology we build. We now need someone who can look after the public-facing and visual side of what we do.

Core responsibilities

Starting with our own websites and client interfaces, we need a pixel-visioned demon who can take design concepts and built faultless responsive interfaces with their eyes closed. Ok, maybe not with your eyes closed, but this bit certainly shouldn't be a challenge for you!

Working under the Senior FED and with input from the Creative Lead and product teams you'll be the go-to person for our web interfaces. Core responsibilities will include

• Transforming flat designs into functional, responsive websites that work beautifully across different browsers and devices
• Managing workflow and work closely with project managers to ensure smooth delivery
• Contributing to the general standard of front-end within the company and taking ownership of improving and maintaining this to a good standard

Vital skills

• Ability to work closely with designer and a passion for creating intuitive user interfaces is essential.
• Solid  HTML and CSS (no Wysiwyg editors allowed!)
• Good knowledge of JavaScript (ES6 preferably).
• An understanding of frameworks such as Angular 2+ or React would be beneficial.

You

The perfect person will ideally have some agency or freelance experience with demonstrable experience of building html interfaces from design concepts. This will not be your first web / front-end role, but you'll be looking to get your teeth into something a bit more challenging and rewarding than banging out websites for small businesses, and you'll be keen to learn and progress in a role that can grow as quickly as you can.
