  • Cross functional teams to solve customer problems.
  • Sprints with future releases a constant.
  • All code is peer reviewed, with knowledge sharing valued.

  • User research and data analysis is valued and acted upon.

  • A thorough understanding of JavaScript is important, with experience in other frontend frameworks such as Angular or Vue, hugely beneficial.
  • Appreciate the importance of testing your code.
  • Be pragmatic and realise when a solution is over-engineered as well as knowing where to spend your time.
  • Comfort with JavaScript tooling landscape is beneficial, as would some experience with modern tools such as Webpack and Babel.
