Role description
Today’s front-end developer works with mobiles, tablets, desktops, and a multitude of sizes in between. They handle an ever-growing set of standards in HTML5, CSS3+, and the now yearly ECMAScript proposals for JavaScript. Best of all, JavaScript is no longer a bunch of jQuery scripts. We build apps to rival any native experience, bringing the richest desktop and mobile experiences to users directly in their browsers.
 
Location

Based in our studio in the Gasworks, we focus on developing cool and disruptive Web and Mobile solutions for our clients, some of the biggest brands in the UK.

You will also have a chance to work with clients throughout UK, Europe and beyond.
Overseas travel will be required.
 
Hours
This is a permanent role. We encourage careful consideration of agile ways of working, both formal and informal arrangements that allow for the best outcomes for our people and our clients. If this opportunity is interesting as a permanent role with a degree of flexibility please do discuss with us.
 
Responsibilities
  • Manage a team with other front-developers, working collaboratively with API developers, creatives and UX experts, integration teams and the client themselves.
  • Be the technical expert, supporting your team in the delivery of features end to end, ensuring code is written to a high standard, incorporating effective unit tests and meeting our code quality levels.
  • Deliver mobile-first, responsive sites using a combination of HTML5, CSS and modern JavaScript frameworks.
  • Ensure your site works for users with accessibility needs, and use progressive enhancement to improve the experience for those on slow connections and weaker devices.
  • Help the client and end users to understand trade-offs when making product decisions, and explain why you would do things a certain way.

 

Requirements

  • Work with outstanding talent across front-developers, API developers, creatives and UX experts, integration teams and the client themselves.
  • Help deliver features end to end. We don’t throw our work “over the wall,” everyone is expected to pull together to design new features and figure out bugs.
  • Deliver mobile-first, responsive sites using a combination of HTML5 and CSS.
  • Build web-apps capable of doing anything a native mobile or desktop app can do. This is the heart and soul of the modern web developer role. The possibilities in the browser should excite you to build the best experience possible for users.
  • Ensure your site works for users with accessibility needs, and use progressive enhancement to improve the experience for those on slow connections and weaker devices.
  • Write code to a high standard, incorporating effective unit tests and meeting our code quality levels.
  • Help the client and end users to understand trade-offs when making product decisions, and explain why you would do things a certain way.
  • Keep learning! We have a great community of front-end developers who run weekly workshops together, share the best articles they find on Slack, and meet up twice a year for a full-day internal conference.
  • Going beyond standard duties and responsibilities to champion small details, spot opportunities and add extra value for our clients.
