Front End Web Developer - React - Manchester

If you're a Front-ender based in Manchester then you need to get in touch with me.

my client is recruiting front-enders who have their finger on the pulse of the latest technologies and are keen to work alongside like-minded individuals; learning and developing their craft in a collaborative and energetic environment.

You will be an integral part of our front end team working on a variety of technically challenging projects spanning key areas of the customer journey, with the autonomy to help drive and shape projects in a way you deem most appropriate. You'll work closely alongside our industry leading UX designers, graphic design and back end teams, with plenty of opportunities to pair program and learn from developers who really care about software excellence and share ideas through weekly workshops, developer meetings and monthly hack days.

Here's what you can expect to be doing

As a leading online retailer, millions of customers each year will see and enjoy your work. You'll be responsible for the design and development of exciting, innovative front end pages, systems and functionality using a mixture of cutting edge and well established technologies and our own internally developed front end libraries and frameworks.

You'll write lean and semantic HTML, carefully crafted and efficient SASS and functional JavaScript, often with libraries such as React and Redux (when the need should arise), all upon a foundation of NodeJS based build tools like Gulp and Webpack to take care of those trivial but essential front end tasks like compilation, concatenation and minification.

Beyond developing new innovative front end features, application heavy key journey functionality and beautiful, bespoke multimedia heavy brand pages for all the amazing manufacturers we work closely with like Samsung, Microsoft and Apple, you'll be working across our international and client sites and getting stuck into other general areas of development such as optimisation, page performance, accessibility, Multi Variant Testing and much more.

A few things about you

We use the following technologies daily, so commercial experience with them is beneficial, although you don't need to be a master at them:

JavaScript and CSS based frameworks / libraries including React
Node JS based tooling (Gulp / WebPack etc.)

Good understanding of browser discrepancies
Familiarity with developing for mobile devices
Understanding of unit testing
CMS experience
Page performance / optimisation knowledge
Animation techniques (CSS or JavaScript based e.g. WebGL)
Good knowledge of Web APIs
.Net experience
