Web Developer - Front End

I am currently working on behalf of a Global Insurer looking to appoint a Web Application Architect to their Science team. The team will have the backing of a multi-million-pound company but with a startup mentality so as a Web developer will have free reign to design and develop some innovative and revolutionary new projects.

The team is built up of data scientists and machine-learning specialists who build algorithms that you will then work with through APIs and increasingly polished cross-platform web applications and mobile apps that feed seamlessly into existing workflows and/or disrupt them with innovative alternatives. The team has grown rapidly due to the support and investment of the businesses leadership team and they are looking to disrupt their own market from within by hiring an experienced lead web developer.

They are looking for a web developer from a Dev Ops environment who is passionate about technology with hands on coding experience to work on projects from blank canvas to solution and looking to make the step up from lead developer to product architect within the short term.

You will be challenged to grow as a product architect and a team leader and will have the opportunity to enjoy state of the art research and development and radically changing the insurance industry.

Required Experience:


- UI frameworks (e.g., React.js, jQuery, Bootstrap)
- Cross-browser, responsive, and scalable HTML & CSS including modular CSS architectures (e.g., SUIT, BEM, SMACSS, OOCSS)
- Infrastructure operations and automation tools
- Continuous integration and testing (e.g., Jenkins, Hudson, BuildBot)
- Build automation (e.g., Gulp, Grunt, Gradle)

The Ideal Candidate Would Also Have:

- Experience building mobile apps (Android and iOS)
- Experience with server virtualization (e.g., AWS, Xen, Rackspace, VMWare) Cluster configuration (e.g., Chef, Puppet, Salt)
- Willingness to represent the business in meet-ups and conferences (e.g., QCon, PyCon, OSCon)
- CTO (or similar) role in high-tech startups and/or startup-like teams in large companies
