Senior JavaScript Developer

Technical agency

Our Farringdon based client is growing at an amazing rate and as such is on the lookout for a Senior Developer to join their talented development team.

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.

In this position you’d be working very closely with a client of theirs in the energy sector, who are based in Staines. As such, for the first few months of working with the company your time would be split between the two offices.

The role

As a Senior Frontend Developer you will:

  • Work alongside other (cross-platform) developers and designers in a dynamic and creative environment.
  • Be hands on, working with a solid tech stack, applied across a number of different products and solutions.
  • Have the opportunity to explore new technologies to enhance existing services with deep learning, graph databases etc.
  • Have ownership for your own work and that of your team.
  • Influence solutions from pitch to delivery with direct client exposure.
  • Run projects using agile delivery, within your practice and with a team consistency which can endure beyond the project lifecycle.
  • Have the ability to change direction to suit the Product and Client needs.

The candidate

It would be good to have:

  • HTML5/CSS3 and strong JavaScript skills.
  • JavaScript framework experience (React/Angular).
  • Knowledge of, or a desire to learn Ember.
  • JS knowledge.
  • Package management (NPM/Yarn) and Version control (Git).
  • No SQL such as MongoDB would be beneficial, as would data visualisation. AWS hosting would be a boon.

In return for the above the company are offering a salary of up to £60,000 as well as a fantastic benefits package. This includes eye care, subsidised gym membership, yoga classes, private medical insurance, cycle to work scheme and childcare vouchers. They’ve also got an onsite chef, bar nights, an annual ski trip and an office sweet shop. For those keen to learn more they provide a bespoke development programme, mentoring programmes and inspirational speaker sessions. 25 days’ holiday are provided, as well as a birthday bonus and summer Fridays!
