About The Role

We are looking for back-end, front-end and full-stack developers with Node.js experience.

You will work on delivering digital transformation projects at FTSE-100 companies, all of them household names, using technologies such as Node.js, React and Kubernetes.

A YLD Software Engineering Consultant is a highly-skilled, quality-oriented developer who exemplifies the highest standard in software engineering and enjoys sharing his/her knowledge and experience with others.

You will be expected to work on-site during various customer engagements. Although the vast majority of our customers are in London, you will be flexible about travel.

This role offers the opportunity to work with some of the most talented developers in their respective fields.

About You

You will have experience in many of the following technologies: Node.js, JavaScript, HTML, CSS, various front-end frameworks (e.g. Angular, React, etc.) and an understanding of back-end architecture, scalability and deployments (even if in languages other than Node.js); .NET and Java are advantageous.

Pair programming, continuous delivery, test driven development, and incremental design should be second nature to you; writing code without tests should be unthinkable.

You will have a real passion for software development, having contributed to open-source projects and written or spoken in public about your work. You will be an active learner, and a good teacher.
