Senior Frontend Developer (React) – London – Up to £85,000

Music Platform

There are few things that bring people together like a shared love of music! Whatever your musical tastes and preferences, we all welcome the chance to take a quick time out to listen to our favourite track or a new album by a band we love.

What if you had the chance to work on a music platform that empowers music lovers worldwide with a seamless service to discover and get involved with Europe’s festival scene?

Well… now you do!

The client

Over the past 5 years, this company have worked to become one of Europe’s largest music festival platforms. They offer an end-to-end experience for festival goers, an effective two-sided market place for nearly 2000 festivals and are in partnership with thousands of suppliers for full travel/accommodation packages. They’re also backed by some of the biggest hitting venture capitalists across the UK too.

The role

Upon joining, you’ll get stuck into a collaborative environment and start taking their current and future ideas through to the production and deployment stage. They are currently looking to revitalise the whole of their frontend architecture in order to improve performance, usability and scalability as their massive growth continues. They’re keen to implement plenty of new technologies, recently including React and GraphQL, to reduce the platforms complexity whilst increasing the responsiveness and fluidity of the system.

Their tech team in growing at a steady rate and you’d work closely with other frontend developers, backend developers, QA engineers and the team’s manager to deliver technical adjustments and new functionality. You would be involved in planning new work and helping the team decide on the best direction in which to drive the project, as well as having technical influence on what technologies to incorporate as their platform develops. Their culture embraces the technical and personal development for all of their employees, offering large training budgets and a flexible, relaxed working environment to ensure you’re at the top of your game!

The candidate

In terms of the tech stack, they use modern JavaScript techniques to implement new and innovative solutions. They also employ the power and flexibility of React to produce cross platform applications. They transpile with Babel, meaning they can work with all the new JavaScript techs whilst supporting older browsers, checking with Flow and building with Webpack. They scale with ease using AWS, launch staging environments via their Slack bot and automate JIRA away (you’ll hardly even notice it!).

  • Strong JavaScript Experience
  • JS Frameworks (Ideally React but other frameworks welcome)
  • Modern workflows (Babel, Flow, Webpack)
  • CSS including pre-processing (SASS, LESS or Stylus)
