Lead Frontend Developer

Agency

The company are a global digital strategy & design studio with expertise across strategy, experience design, UX/UI design and development and locations in London, Seattle, Hong Kong and Tokyo.

The client

A digital experience agency, our client is looking to bring on a senior developer to join their tech team. They have a focus on mobile, responsive web, wearable technology and omni channel experiences for some of the world’s most influential brands, from their modern offices near Old Street. They also have an office in Seattle to service their American clients, with both having a really great atmosphere in.

The role

In this role you’d be specialising in design focused development, building ground-breaking online platform on both the front and back end, as well as exploring new technologies (such as blockchain and the IoT). Specifically, you’ll be:

  • Crafting and writing front and back end code (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, React, Node, Angular) for some huge clients.
  • Working closely with our designers and UX experts to design elegant, technical solutions for user experience challenges provided by their clients.
  • Partaking in peer review of code and working together on client challenges.
  • Mentoring junior members and taking a lead role on projects.

The candidate

They are on the lookout for someone with solid JavaScript skills and eCommerce experience. Experience with frameworks such as React and Angular would also be a bonus – they like to use different frameworks so aren’t looking for someone who is wedded to one. AWS knowledge would be a bonus as would experience across a wide variety of databases. Ideally, you’ll have built responsive websites across several platforms (desktop, tablet, mobile etc) as well as being familiar with agile processes (they actually work agile properly, before you ask!). The key thing though is that you’ve got a diligent working mindset, as you’ll be helping to develop junior devs in their career and almost acting as a lead.

In return for the above they offer a great range of benefits, including:

  • A relaxed start-up environment, with flexible working.
  • Summer and winter company conferences, one of which is generally abroad.
  • Access to a discretionary shares scheme.
  • They’re currently building an event space, so if you want to get involved in hosting events there will be a ready-made space.
  • An innovation program with time reserved to come up with new ideas and explore new technologies.
  • Hackathons!
