JavaScript Engineer

Retail company

A multinational retailer are on the lookout for several JavaScript Engineers to join them.

The client

They are currently leading the industry into a greener and more inspiring digital era. As such this retail giant are looking for a number of engineers to join them, from Mid through to Senior level. You’ll be joining one of their squads and helping to build out innovative and fully performative software, using best practice coding standards.

They’re huge fans of collaboration and like to solve problems as a team, talking through decisions and making use of whiteboard sessions. For the more senior roles, you’d also be expected to help mentor more junior members of the team, through paired programming and other means.

There’s a chance to architect software whilst they’re also looking for candidates who have a strong sense of software design, by displaying a strong understanding of algorithms and data structures.

The role

Everything they build is in JavaScript; Node.JS on the backend and ES6/React on the front. They also make use of build automation tools such as Webpack, as well as testing frameworks and libraries such as Jest, Mocha and Chai (they’re big fans of TDD).

They use Kubernetes and Docker for containerisation, so it would be a bonus if you’ve got any experience working in a real DevOps culture, as they’re looking to breed one here.

The candidate

They’re offering a salary of up to £80K, as well as a pretty impressive list of benefits. These include the chance to work essentially remote (on paper they’d ask you in once a week, though most people do just once a month), flexitime, a group profit bonus, 25 days holiday (plus bank holidays), staff discount and a VERY attractive pension scheme (up to 18%). There are also your more generic bonuses, such as cycle to work scheme (if you did want to be office based), life assurance and a range of health benefits.

We welcome those with alternative identities, backgrounds, and experiences. Our team includes parents, the self-taught, the university-educated, and people of a wide variety of nationalities, ages, and socio-economic backgrounds.

Obviously, we’re looking to ensure it’s a solid fit from both sides: we want you to step into a role you love, and we want to offer you a place you’re proud to come to every day for work.

We know that diverse teams are strong teams, and welcome those with alternative identities, backgrounds, and experiences to apply to be part of life at Zebra People. We are committed to a fair and accessible recruitment process for all candidates. We would be happy to meet any accommodation requests during the application or interview process, please just let us know.
