Front End Developer

  • Anywhere

We are looking for a passionate front-end developer with a self-starting approach and a keen interest in data visualisation to join our small and super-dynamic team to help us build an awesome web-experience for the users of our data-centric platform. You will own the front-end of our product and be working to develop amazing, beautiful data visualisations, set within a responsive, well- structured modern web-app. We’re looking for someone with an ‘eye for design’ and experience building modern web-apps but most importantly, someone who can think and work creatively with complex data.

The core skills we are looking for include:

  • Good knowledge of modern Javascript: best practices, language constructs, asynchronousprogramming
  •  Javascript and CSS tooling – transpilers, polyfills, bundling and package management (eg.SCSS, Typescript, npm, yarn, webpack, babel)
  • React and associated frameworks (eg Redux / MobX) (anticipate 2+ yrs commercial)
  • CSS and HTML: modern and principled approach to layouts
  • Proficient in at least one grass-roots java data visualisation framework (eg D3.js)

We are flexible on your exact level of experience. We’re going to need you to know your way around REACT (pitfalls, gotchas etc) but we don’t expect you to be an expert in everything and will provide all the training and resources you need to build not only incredible tech but also a strong and rewarding career.

This role is a full time, permanent position based in King’s Cross. Being a small company, candidates need to be able to work autonomously, be comfortable without micro-management, be flexible and find new solutions to problems.
