The client

They are a progressive creative agency that is known for its ability to blend creativity, digital and data to develop leading campaigns. Their Engineering team works across iOS, Android and development, allowing the company to help businesses build the foundation and channels for them to flourish.

The role

You will be working with current and future clients as well as fantastically talented Product and Delivery Managers, UX and Visual Designers and QA Engineers. You will be responsible for ensuring all of their web delivery is flawless whilst constantly pushing the boundaries of what’s possible.

They’d expect you to keep yourself, your team, and the company up-to-date with, and champion, the latest web technology and trends.

  • Lead hands-on development of well-architected web applications.
  • Collaborate with team members across all disciplines and practices.

  • Strong JavaScript skills, as well framework experience (React/Angular).
  • JS knowledge.
  • Package management (NPM/Yarn) and Version control (Git).
