Senior Front-End Developer (React) - Belfast 

If you are a Front-End developer with a strong background in JavaScript including React (or Angular/Vue etc), then you can help bring Manchester United back to its former glory!

That’s right you read that correctly.  You’ll part of the development team working on a sports performance platform that’s currently with Manchester United Football Club.

In fact, the platform is also being tested by Ulster Rugby, Boston College NCAA Hockey and many other elite clubs across the globe. 

So, what exactly is the product?

This platform is the brainchild of a local sports hero who was at the top of his game in the Rugby world. He has now moved his focus to building an innovative Sports technology company.
Communication is key to all successful teams, but he realised it could be improved with the clever use of technology.

Players and clubs contend with a cluttered landscape of ever-changing player and team schedules, meeting times, gym requirements, equipment, and medical appointments. This causes a distraction in a player which affects their optimal performance come match day.

This platform optimises the performance of professional athletes by providing them with a structured tool to engineer and take ownership of their bespoke medical, athletic and skill requirements. These features are delivered simultaneously alongside real time insights allowing the athlete to attain peak performance on game day.

You’ll be a front-end developer with a strong technical background who has experience in end to end software design who can develop secure, robust and scalable software products.  Since you would be joining an ambitious start-up you will need to be focused, dogged with the ability to work at a high paced.  The company promotes positive intent, collaboration, and a ‘no blame’ culture.

You’ll be responsible for the end to end development of new features including code and design, implementation, documentation, and deployment.  You’ll implement front end mobile and web sites from technical specifications and use new and innovative technologies to create effective, elegant and scalable solutions.

Ideally, we would love to find a front-end developer that is strong JavaScript including React and React Native on the front-end. We would also like to see candidates with a background in other frameworks such as Angular or Vue.  You should also be comfortable with HTML, CSS with an eye for UI/UX design.  The build tools currently being used includes Webpack, Grunt, Gulp, and more.  Experience with 3rd party APIs would be ideal.

You’ll be given a lot of autonomy in this position and you would be part of a growing development team a very stable start-up environment. An excellent salary is on offer (£40k - £50k) along with share options.
