A position has opened up in one of London' strongest AdTech start-up teams for a Senior JavaScript Developer to move into a technical lead role for a 4 strong team scaling a platform with global reach. The Senior JavaScript Developer will be joining as the most senior engineer for a team of 4 working side by side with the Head of Product, back-end (ruby) lead and CTO to develop and transition into a lead position for the team. Starting out it's mainly about hands on excellence as a senior JavaScript Developer of mobile first Front End cloud based SPA's acting as the hands on example for the rest of the team. In time, and through working with other department leads, you will grow to become the absolute authority for the front end will full ownership of design, architecture, tool and framework selection as well as setting, and enforcing, your engineering standards and best practices. To do this you need to be an expert JavaScript engineer and although you may not spend as much of your time working on the responsive UI with HTML, and CSS (SASS/LESS), you will still need to be an authority on them and the modern best practices with using them effectively such as BEM, SMACCSS and OOCSS. The product here is currently built using Angular 1.5 and although they'd love for you to have considerable hands on experience with the framework for the right person with the overall depth of knowledge they are more than happy for you to master this on the job. Furthermore, they are already looking into Angular 2 and React to be sure they can future proof the platform and remain the leader in the delivery of one of advertising most complex practices in a simple, user friendly, way. Lastly they value an agile and truly test first culture implementing TDD and BDD in a DevOps inspired build, test and deployment environment. Although you need not be an expert in creating cloud infrastructure we'd expect you to have considerable experience working in such environments, you should have be an advocate for TDD, and BD, and have considerable experience working in this way. We appreciate that this is a big ask, the company are a serious outfit though and if you are looking to accelerate your career quickly you'll struggle to find somewhere better to do that.
