Lead Front-End Developer

— Growing agency, R&D time

Salary: £35K - £45K
Location: Cheltenham
Type: Permanent
Ref: 7747

Description

  • Friendly and relaxed environment at a fast growing agency.
  • Impressive list of regular blue chip clients.
  • R&D time provided on a project by project basis to learn new tech where necessary.

A rapidly growing agency, based in central Cheltenham, with a great atmosphere and a strong blue chip client base is looking for a Lead Front-End Developer. The agency currently has a team closing in on 20 fast, working in a friendly and relaxed environment. They’ve been going from success to success and are looking to expand the technical capabilities of the team to take on bigger and more exciting projects and potentially look to continue growing into new markets. It’s the best time to join!

What experience you’ll need

  • You’ll have strong skills with JavaScript. ReactJS is essential to the role, although any experience with NodeJS would be great too.
  • You’ll have proven experience developing high quality web apps.
  • HTML/CSS, SASS, Gulp/Grunt and Git/Subversion are all important skills to have.
  • Any further knowledge of Express, PHP (Laravel) and CMS (WordPress/Processwire) would be beneficial but not essential.
  • It’d also be beneficial to have experience working with API’s.

What you’ll be doing

You’ll be responsible for working closely with the designers, creating high quality websites and web apps from wireframed visual designs. You’ll be discussing the viability and cost of projects with the design team and clients, as well as any of the other developers working with you. You’ll be working on a mixture of upcoming projects, from ‘classic’ front-end projects to new universal JavaScript apps (which you’ll be taking a lead on). As a new area for the agency, you’ll be expected to help grow the team, working closely with the Head of Digital to plan and scope future projects and mentor/train juniors when needed.

What you’ll get in return for your talents

You’ll be based in the centre of Cheltenham, working in a hard-working and talented team whilst being in a relaxed and friendly environment. On top of the generous salary (up to £45K), you’ll be given pension, health cover, 25 days holiday (+bank holidays) and little extras like parking. There’s flexibility provided for those that need it; a later start to drop the kids off at school for example. The tech stack is reviewed on a project by project basis and if you make a case for bringing in something new then you’ll be provided with the R&D time to make that possible. It’s a growing agency – so there’s always the room to grow with it!
