This is an exciting one-off opportunity for an experienced JavaScript developer to steer the development of a huge and successful digital platform. From day one you will be the one who decides which JavaScript technologies to use and how to use them. This is also a great opportunity for personal development with a chance for accelerated progression to become a lead developer!


While there is enough frontend experience to get by, given the scale of the project they are undertaking, they want to bring in a specialised role to focus solely on the frontend. With the growth they are expecting in the company, this role will be a fantastic opportunity to progress into a lead developer.


The company is rebuilding their ever growing and successful digital platform with the latest technologies and they want someone with the JavaScript know-how to take ownership and responsibility for the frontend. You will be steering the frontend development from day one as a specialist JavaScript developer in almost consultant-like role. Here you will lead the discussion about what JavaScript technologies to use, such as Vue or React and how they can be best implemented for this massive rebuild.


You must be comfortable reverse-engineering the existing platform’s frontend and be able to migrate it into clearer and isolated components following proper naming conventions. They want someone who can lay down a strong foundation in the development of a brand new codebase.


Alongside this big greenfield migration, you will be designing and implementing the frontend for side projects such as a broadcasting panel which will act as an interface for live broadcasting and will accommodate for things such as multiple webcam feeds, dial in participants and live mixing of video files.


You will also be handling most, if not all, of the frontend of a new admin site which is having all existing management functionality ported across to it.


If you ever thought you didn’t have the time to read up and keep up to date with new technologies and extend your learning, then this is the role for you. The company doesn’t want to rush and they will give you all the time you need research the latest and most innovative solutions to your coding problems. There has never been a better chance for you to further your personal development – and the joy of this is you can do it on the job as part of your job!  


They need someone with experience in:


  • JavaScript
  • At least one JavaScript library/framework (React, Angular, Vue)
  • API consumption
  • SASS


This is a rare opportunity for someone who is looking for a challenge as you will be helping decide how each project is approached and what technologies will be used. There is huge learning potential here with the time you will be given for self-development. This is a great chance for any ambitious developer who wants to progress their career and likes the idea of being at the forefront of the company’s growth and success.
