Senior JavaScript Engineer

— Flexi time / remote working, learn Angular2

Salary: £40K - £60K
Location: Bristol
Type: Permanent
Ref: 7449

Description

  • R&D and personal project time to learn new tech and skills.
  • Multi-national, market leading clients that you’ll be directly working with.
  • Opportunities for flexible time and some remote working.

A rapidly growing but already highly successful analytics business, based in central Bristol, is looking for a talented JavaScript Engineer as part of their current growth stage. Their platform is already being used by some of the biggest names in technology, consultancy and financial services. They look to support training and events whenever they can, wanting their engineers to be part of the community. They want to remain cutting edge so there will be plenty of opportunities to work with new tech and suggest new ideas for the team.

What experience you’ll need

  • You’ll have a strong amount of commercial experience with JavaScript – ideally Angular but other libraries will be considered. Currently using 1.6, they want to move to Angular2 as part of the continued growth so any previous experience of 2 will be great.
  • Ideally you’ll have a software background working within a SaaS business.
  • You’ll also be experienced with HTML5, CSS3, SASS, Git and MySQL. Skills with PHP (Symfony / Laravel) would be preferable but not essential.
  • Any experience with AWS, Docker, Drupal or D3 will be an added bonus.
  • Working with profiling tools and tracking tools (JIRA) will be important.
  • You will be interacting with clients so any previous client-facing experience is great.

What you’ll be doing

You’ll be building and improving the client-side framework that supports all the current front-end web apps. You’ll be working within an initial development team of 7, with a view to continue growing in the near future. As part of the current development roadmap, you’ll be building out a server-side JS capability. You will be leading development projects on certain parts of the platform, as well as liaising with clients to identify where to improve the system. You’ll also be taking part in R&D time (as well as having time for personal projects) that will look to introduce new technologies and ideas to the wider team.

What you’ll get in return for your talents

You’ll be based in nice central Bristol offices, with one of the most talented and skilled teams in the area. The business is at the real forefront of what they do and so you’ll never have a boring day. You’ll get to interact with clients working for huge multinational corporations. This is a business that’s always looking to be cutting edge in what they do so on top of the work related R&D time you’ll have, you’ll also be allotted time for personal projects. There are flexible hours on offer with the chance for some remote working as well. This is only the initial growth stage of the business so there will be plenty of opportunity to grow with the company.
