Senior Front-End Developer

Have you ever been at a party and thought, “If I wasn’t here, would anyone notice?”

Even worse, have you ever had a job and thought the same?

You can use your front-end skills to make a real impact, help build a development team, with potential for career progression within the company.

This job has come about because my client’s legacy systems have been in place for over ten years and the company now needs to integrate the latest technologies to ensure they maintain their market leadership. 

We need an experienced developer to introduce CSS pre-processing (SASS/LESS), as well as a JavaScript Framework (Vue, Angular or React).

The current thinking within the development team is that the Vue framework would be the way to go as it’s easier to integrate into existing systems, but the great thing about this job is that the successful Front-End Developer will be a key player in helping to redesign the front-end architecture and helping to decide the types of technology that should be used e.g. React or Angular.

Variety of work will not be an issue if you take this job: the Head of IT is currently looking at 200+ projects that need to be prioritised and planned, and you will also have the opportunity to work on virgin projects. 

The Head of IT has recently joined the company himself. With over 20 years’ experience as a developer, he will be staying ‘hands on’ and needs someone who can work alongside him in a collaborative manner to help improve the overall UX of both new and existing systems.

There is a back-end development team with 20 members that are based off-site in another location, and you will also need to collaborate with them effectively to ensure everyone stays on point.
The company in question is a local multi-award-winning business that has been operating since 2003. The business’s agile and fast-paced company culture, coupled with its commitment to technology-driven innovation and strategic business growth, has helped it become a leading player in its industry. So much so, in fact, that the business is about to move into impressive Grade A city centre premises as it has plans to double its head-count.   

You would be joining one of the country’s fastest-growing local businesses, with a company culture that feels like an agile startup but is backed up by the track record and strategic mindset of an established technology company.

We are looking for a Senior Front-End Developer with at least 5 years’ experience. This is not a design job, but you would need an eye for UX/UI as you will be working with wireframes and prototypes to demonstrate interaction and develop user interfaces. You will be an expert in HTML5, CSS, JavaScript and SASS/LESS. Expertise in a JavaScript Framework such as Vue, React or Angular is essential.
