Front end development specialist - Growing tech start-up

Bolton

£30,000 - £45,000 per annum

I'm working with an innovative tech start-up based in Bolton, that are looking to expand their team with an experienced front end developer.

The Business:

Currently, the team are developing several new platforms after some real success with their first project - which has had a big impact in the energy sector. They hope to use these new platforms to establish business in a range of sectors and cover capabilities relating to everything from vehicle tracking through to stock management.

With about 11 developers already in the team, they are hoping to grow further with an experienced front end Javascript developer, open to working with a variety of JS frameworks and working with tech on the "bleeding edge."

You:

You will need a good commercial background working with JavaScript, developing apps in an Agile environment and be open to pushing your boundaries (and the businesses) with new technologies.

Key responsibilities will include you building new user-enhancing / facing features as well as REST APIs, ensuring the feasibility of UX/UI designs and optimising the speed and scalability of your work.

This is very much a code orientated front end role, so good programming skills and knowledge of JavaScript, HTML and CSS are essential (though having an eye for design is certainly a plus!) You'll be working as part of a mixed skilled, collaborative team - so good communication skills are also a must.

  • HTML 5
  • CSS 3
  • CSS pre-processor: SASS, LESS or similar
  • 2 years' experience + working with a JS framework; Angular 2+, React.js, Vue.js, Next.js or similar
  • Experience creating RESTful APIs
  • SQL and/or No-SQL database experience
  • Git or SVN
  • Exposure to Node.js or experience working in the MERN and/or MEAN stack
  • TDD

Additional skill (desirable):

  • BSc in Computer Science or similar
  • Portfolio, GitHub or website showcasing your work
  • Exposure to PHP/Laravel
  • Exposure to mobile development (native, ionic or similar)
  • TypeScript
  • Dev-Ops tools / experience
