Role: Front End Developer

Stack: React

Salary: £35k - £60k

Industry: Digital Agency and Product Design

Working: FULLY REMOTE - can consider people based in Europe.

CX Squared have the honour of working with one of Birmingham's best digital and product agency's in the region. It's our role as their talent partner, to shout about their culture and help build their front-end development team. This team is responsible for designing, building and optimising digital products and services for a multitude of different brands and organisations.

Projects:

This might range from a proof-of-concept demo or a single sprint MVP build to a custom API that powers mobile and web apps, to a fully CMS driven website or internationally distributed cloud based system. The beauty of the role is that you will be fully involved with every step from the ideation, scoping and design, through to ensuring that products are delivered to match the agreed functionality, spec and finish.

The role
Front end development has changed considerably over the last 5 years, with the introduction of JS frameworks it has meant that many parts of a modern Web Application have moved to the client browser. The growth of mobile device usage has also meant that performant, responsive design is a given these days and so a 'mobile-first' mindset is imperative.

Your role of front end developer will vary from the creation of simple static HTML pages/email right through to the architecture of complex Single Page Applications (SPAs).

In this role, you'll find yourself:

  • Working with React
  • Working within the next.js framework to build frontend applications
  • Creating semantic HTML Markup
  • Efficient SASS styling/theming to bring designs to life
  • Creation and evolution of delightful UI/UX experiences
  • Writing modular, configurable, reusable, DRY Javascript
  • Integrating JS libs such as Google Maps, Algolia Search, Charts JS and more...
  • Breaking UI down into suitably sized and reusable components
  • Networking with public and private REST APIs
  • Working with popular web sharing services and meta tags, Twitter/Facebook etc.
  • Creation of SEO/Microdata markup
  • Implementing tracking/analysing user behaviour
  • Creation and maintenance of build systems to help administer the above (Gulp/Grunt/Webpack)
  • General page perf and weight optimisation, size/load/requests etc.
  • Estimating and project planning around all of the above

Requirements

Your Experience:

  • Experience working with React and have built several applications
  • Experience creating responsive, heavily designed web sites and applications from the ground up
  • Experience in producing delightful, fast and smooth animations and little UX touches
  • Able to demonstrate a working knowledge of the git version control system from time within at least a mid sized team (branching/pull requests etc)
  • Experience working collaboratively with Strategists and Designers to hone your output to a high standard
  • You will have previously learnt to balance client expectations against technical requirements

There are many Front-End Developer roles out there, but not many to work with an organisation who have carved their own reputation through brilliant code, applications and products over the years. The people in this business have ben there for years, and people rarely leave, because they feel the love.

For a confidential conversation, get in touch with Dan Rodrigues on 07825 444 051.
