This is an excellent opportunity for an enthusiastic senior front-end engineer to join a growing company to develop your skills, along with a great opportunity to grow within the company and have a long-term career. 

The role will require you to be self-motivated, take ownership of tasks and see them through, have a strong desire to constantly learn new skills, and be excited about the future and what is possible. 

If you are a fan of all things JavaScript, enjoy frequently shipping code to production and have a solid understanding of building clean, modular, front-end applications using modern front-end technologies, then please get in touch. 

What we need from you: 

Essential 

  • Strong JavaScript fundamentals 
  • Excellent understanding of modern React

The Role:

  • Ensure responsive design and design system consistency across our website  
  • Contribute to architectural discussions and decisions 
  • Mentor and support other members of the front-end team 

The Tech: 

We are in the process of redeveloping our website focusing on the latest technology, using React for the front-end coupled with our home-grown Design System, built on top of a federated Apollo GraphQL backend using microservice architecture. We don't expect you to have experience in everything we use, but we do require strong JavaScript fundamentals and a background working with React. 

The successful applicant will enjoy working in our new, purpose-built office on the outskirts of Bexhill with easy road access, free on-site parking, and a subsidised staff dining room.
