We are growing our UI team to develop new features for our exciting frontend product built in React, as well as maintaining existing features and occasionally porting features from a legacy Angular codebase. Additionally we are responsible for our GraphQL API built in node.js and Apollo to interact with a microservice backend layer. The team’s mandate is to create an entirely new user experience and engineer the UI with the best and latest technologies.

  • Be responsible for visual consistency of the UI

You believe in the agile approach of breaking long term projects into small deliveries to achieve rapid changes. You are keen on learning more and contributing your knowledge back to your peers inside and outside the office.

Development is agile and fast paced. The day begins with a short scrum at which tasks will be distributed and any road-blocks cleared. Work is test driven, with unit tests implemented first to be run in a continuous integration environment. Only then do they write code. To deliver quickly you will leverage the best of the open source community, sometimes substituting your own solutions where greater performance is needed. You will be encouraged to evangelise and prototype new technologies and through doing so you will help shape the architecture.

  • Deep knowledge of JavaScript or TypeScript, HTML and CSS
  • Experience of backend systems such as node.js, GraphQL and REST
  • Use of modern JavaScript frameworks such as React, Redux, Styled Components, Apollo GraphQL
  • UX and visual design skills are a plus

You will be joining a progressive and exciting company committed to excellence. They offer an excellent working environment with ongoing training and a structured career path. You can also expect an excellent salary and benefits package.

The environment is that of Facebook or Google, relaxed open with time to think and make the right decisions. The atmosphere is calm and relaxed with an open dress code. This is a role for techies, those who are motivated by the sharp end of technology and the possibility of making serious money doing something you are passionate about.
