We’re a profitable start-up now looking to grow our JavaScript programming team even further and we need passionate JavaScript developer with Angular.js experience to join and be the JavaScript champion within the team as we look to further develop our front end and user experiences.

You will be joining a team of around 15 top level developers, mainly backend and will be the “go-to” person for everything JavaScript, building clean applications from the ground up and also helping coach and mentor the other developers on Front End / JavaScript best practice.

 

As one of our JavaScript Developers you will be working on a lot of build work, so should come with experience of building web applications from scratch using Angular.js, however we’d be looking for you to build using Angular2 (we’re happy for you to learn it as you go!)

Over the last 2 years, we’ve transitioned our platform from being held by a 3rd party and are now running the entire platform internally. We’ve gone through a lot of transition (and a hell of a lot of challenges) and we’re now getting ready to plan the product roadmap to create a platform with seamless user journeys, clean applications and hopefully in time, become a global player in the property and rental industry.

As out JavaScript developer, you will be responsible for initially working on updating the forms to Angular2,(so this could be something we’re able to help you into), but the longer term is to build a number of applications, products and features from scratch,

We believe in Agile (even though we’re still small), as we anticipate growth for years to come, we’re implementing our Agile strategy now, so should come from an Agile (Scrum) background and be happy to work on large and small projects in an agile way.

We like TDD, but we’re just not big enough for that to make sense (…yet), however we are keen on Unit Testing, so we’d like to see our JavaScript Developer with experience of testing within an agile environment.

We’re currently the 3rd biggest player in our specialist area, with the other 2 further in their journeys (but also less nimble and able to change), we see a massive opportunity with some of our products to take the top spot in the UK and then in Europe.

Our JavaScript developer will be someone who wants to join in on that journey, loves a start-up environment, embraces change and growth and is not afraid to offer up ideas to help us achieve our company and business goals.

Required skills:

  • 5+ years as a JavaScript Developer
  • Experience working with Angular.js (ideally working with at least 2-3 libraries and frameworks)
  • Understand inside and out web services/APIs (e.g. RESTful services), including how to interact with JSON/JSONP data formats
  • Worked with and delivered rapidly iterating requirements and daily deployments
  • Experience in using command line tools like  Bower, NPM and Grunt

Essentially if you KNOW JavaScript and have used Angular.js and are based in the EU, we want to speak with you!
