Do you want the chance to work for a heavily funded fashion tech start-up and develop your skills quickly handling the full re-build of a major application? A position has opened up for a Front End Developer to join a cutting edge fashion tech start-up where you'll be working as the most senior front end developer and alongside their back-end tech lead to own the rebuild of an application that is critical to the business. Currently a large mobile first Angular SPA, you will have full responsibility for design, architecture and tool/framework selection moving through this rebuild allowing you to learn technology that you want too - they are thinking about either React or Angular 2 but it would really be up to. They hire on core skills, personality, and potential, and then put trust in their engineers to deliver the best solution for the business. What they need to see from you is a real depth of knowledge of HTML5 and CSS3, including pre-processors (SASS/LESS), methodologies (BEM/SMACSS) and modern workflow tools (Grunt/Gulp/WebPack/Npm etc.), as well as experience working with Angular in a commercial environment. Vanilla JavaScript is important but you do not need to be an expert, if you can demonstrate an ability to build mobile first applications with Angular, that's fine. At the moment there are 40 people in the business and 9 in engineering. The quality in the team is excellent and although you'll be the only dedicated front end developer they are still determined to help you learn about important engineering best practices that ensure quality software. Alongside getting to develop your skills in defining new features, modular architecture, learn a new frameworks and everything else that comes with leading projects they will teach you about TDD, BDD and automation in build, test and deployment (Jenkins, AWS etc.). This role is ideal if you are looking to be challenge whilst working in an incredible fun environment where you can enjoy developing your skills as an engineer and technical leader.
