About the Job

Excellent oppourtunity for a Front End Engineer to join a well known company in the UK.

The company has real people to support buying or selling, but a lot of the work is done through our software. They are growing really quickly due to success, we've also expanded into 4 countries.

As a front-end engineer you will be joining a team of roughly 17 front enders globally (12 in the UK) - and more than 80 engineers in total (counting Full Stack, QA and the App Team). The client has a great culture that encourages learning, trusts you to own significant areas of the platform and gives you the ability to contribute ideas and help shape our tech stack.

The company are always looking for bright people who are passionate, always growing, and are fun to work alongside. If you feel that you'd enjoy working with here then have a read of the skills list below:

Skills/Technologies -

  • Attention to detail (UI creation)
  • Javascript (ES6/7/8)
  • Typescript
  • React
  • Redux (Sagas)
  • Atomic component/design structure
  • Server Side Rendering using Node and Express
  • HTML5 - CSS3, SASS, CSSModules
  • Browser performance
  • Accessibility
  • ARIA etc
  • Webpack
  • Docker - TDD
  • Jest, Enzyme and React Testing Library Git
  • Yarn/NPM

You'd join a multi-skilled squad, usually 7 people made up of Full Stack, QA, Front-End and a Scrum Master. You will be part of planning meetings to break up the new features into small tasks - then you work as part of that team to deliver these tasks that culminate to build new features of our software. You will primarily own the front end tasks - some independently and some using pair programming. There is also the scope to help with new proof of concepts outside of the squad work.
