Senior JavaScript Engineer

Travel company

Based in Central London, one of the world’s most iconic travel brands is looking to bring on several JavaScript Developers to help them become Europe’s most loved.

The client

In this role you’ll be helping to shape their digital products by working closely with their design team to deliver high quality transactional applications across multiple devices, as well as building highly transactional microservices to support their architecture. Key to the company’s success is the ability to build effective UX that is supported by performant APIs – you’ll have a pivotal role in making this a reality, working across a pure JavaScript stack.

The role

They’re looking for someone who has solid experience with React (plus associated libraries) and OO JavaScript/ES6. You’ll have previous experience working with microservices architecture as well as Node.JS (again, plus associated build tools – think Yarn, Babel etc.). They’re huge fans of GraphQL so hopefully you are too! Then there’s your more generic skills:

·       HTML5/CSS3 (SASS etc.)

·       Experience delivering cross browser responsive websites/apps (including isomorphic ones)

·       Unit testing/integration testing/BDD/TDD

·       Cloud hosting experience on AWS

Bonus points for prior experience working on high traffic e-commerce websites or if you’re an active contributor to open source projects!

The candidate

As well as the requirements in the opening paragraph they’re looking for someone who’s keen to contribute to, and assist the Solution Architect with technical solution design and a roadmap; ensuring this is followed by the dev team. Again, there’s also your more generic expectations:

  • Mentor junior developers
  • Engage and contribute to story workshops
  • Refactoring pages as required
  • Ensuring all code is delivered from the BDD processes

In return they’re offering a salary of up to £80K (though I’m sure there can be flex here) as well as some fantastic benefits, the best of which is an outstanding pension scheme and a substantial discount on travel fares. They’re also HUGE fans of flexible and remote working.
