Working as part of a team of developers, designers, and producers, this role as a Front End Developer will have a key focus and responsibility for the production and maintenance of interactive client side user interfaces on suite of projects in unique and creative ways.

This team produces some bleeding edge applications and sites that are used so 100,000's of people at any one time. The work you will be doing is highly interactive and will involve some heavy lifting JavaScript work. The technology stack there is working with React and Node.js.

So here is what you will be doing:

  • Build HTML(5)/CSS/JavaScript applications and user interfaces that deliver value to our end users
  • Identify and communicate shortcomings in existing sites/sections and improve quality

  • Innovate and participate in the ongoing development across the digital websites and other internal tools

What is needed?

  • Previous experience working with larger teams on heavy loading sites and applications in an Agile environment.
  • Adhere to cross-browser and cross-platform compatibility and relevant web standards such as HTML(5), CSS, JavaScript and JSON.
