Intro

We are looking for senior level developers who specialise in JavaScript frameworks (and who want to work with the latest technologies).

We've had a big funding round earlier this year and our technical team is growing rapidly (from 4 to 14 people so far). We need to bring up-to-date our technology to meet the business's ambitions for the next few years. This includes implementing a SPA as our customer facing website (a green-field project).

We are a team of 14 looking to grow to 18 immediately and increase to between 20 and 30 in 12 months. To do this we need your dedication to get work done on time, to train new staff and integrate many new team members into this rapidly growing team while working with the other mid-senior developers to ensure that standards stay high and keep getting higher.

THE STACK

METHODOLOGY
We work incrementally but do occasionally take on bigger projects to update our stack and offering. Our current methodology is agile kanban.

Main requirements

YOUR ATTITUDE
You’re someone who’s smart, organised, motivated and gets things done. You want to work in a startup environment, because you like the idea of doing a bit of everything and taking ownership of what you work on. You have ideas about everything, and you’re not afraid to argue your point (while respecting everyone else’s of course). You’re constantly thinking “how can we do this better?”.

You understand the hard work required to update and stabilise a large technical product and you are prepared to put this work into the project.

YOUR SKILL SET
To be considered for the role you must have significant experience of working and delivering projects with at least most of the following technologies:

  • 3+ years experience with JavaScript and 1.5+ years with AngularJS/ReactJS
  • Familiar with Sass (would consider LESS or Stylus)
  • You’re more than comfortable with modern web development standards including HTML, CSS, Javascript and responsive design
  • You have integrated systems with 3rd party APIs before
  • You’re also fluent with the command line, you use git
  • The applicant would normally have a computing or software engineering degree.
  • E-commerce experience is a big plus but not a requirement

Perks

We’re a team of 65 located in an amazing converted piano factory in Camden (NW1 8LH) a short stroll from Camden market and Primrose Hill.
