Lead Full Stack Javascript Developer

London, City of London - Greater London

£60,000 - £80,000 per annum



We’re looking for a Lead JavaScript Engineer to join the team to help us to come up with some cool ideas and then help to build them into viable consumer products and in true start-up style, run with them to create a world leading product OR pivot and look at something else.

Either way the end goal is to create something excellent for our consumers!

We are looking for a world class, highly motivated ‘all round’ Lead JavaScript Engineer with a clear passion for clean and semantic code who can also produce JavaScript and React.Js solutions of the highest standard to join our talented cross functional development team. You would be an important part of a team working towards a complete makeover of our e – commerce website.

We build clean code, we have done since forever and we like to keep it this way and are big on TDD and Unit Testing, we’d like to see our Lead JavaScript Engineer with experience of working in a TDD environment, however if you use unit testing and have not yet learned TDD, we’re happy to teach if you’re willing to learn.      

We’re a fully agile environment, working our own project using Kanban, however we collaborate with Scrum teams throughout the group and adjust where needed, so a good agile knowledge is always helpful.

As our Lead JavaScript Engineer you will be working with different and ambitious projects from the very beginning.  We’re doing a lot with our back end to split into microservices and you’ll be responsible for liaising with the Back End Leads and making sure the teams are working closely together to improve the user experience and create new product features and apps.

You would be someone who loves to work in a multicultural environment. You want to work within a successful and recognised company, but you also want an environment where your ideas and input will have an impact on its success. You want to work somewhere where people e know each other by first name (at the very least…), and where they genuinely want to help  and challenge each other to learn, and to be better, faster and more innovative every day. 

Unlike most jobs, as our Lead JavaScript Engineer, you'll have the ability to come up with and chair new ideas and features for the application and will be given time to try them out, prove the concept and if all good, roll out to the market and see it used by millions of consumers.

So what are we in need of?

  • JavaScript
  • React.Js
  • Good managerial or team leading skills.
  • Hands-on experience with TDD
  • Experience in an agile (Scrum or Kanban) environment
  • Love to build complex web applications and solve problems
  • Want to get your hands dirty and help a £multi-million business drive further
  • Have some experience of working with a User focussed product in retail, commerce or similar
