We are Beagle Street. We sell life insurance online. We do things a bit differently – in a marketplace crowded with dinosaurs we innovate and disrupt. We’re growing at a phenomenal rate and we have the highest customer satisfaction ratings in the industry despite being one of the newest players. We’re still not satisfied.

Could you deliver innovative and robust solutions that create a world class online experience for our customers?

The Team

We’re a team of over 35 exceptionally talented people who are together shaking up the life insurance industry. As a Front End Developer you would be part of both our E-Commerce and Developer teams. These teams are bringing to the market pioneering new technologies for our website.

Cool stuff

  • Developer time: time to work on something you think is cool (that’s useful).
  • Food for thought: our restaurant is pretty awesome, especially the desserts!
  • Creative atmosphere: we try to think bigger and better and we’re not afraid to fail.
  • Gym on-site: if you’re into fitness we’ve got a pretty well kitted-out gym in the building.
  • Team spirit: fun, cooperative, creative and passionate – occasionally even witty.
  • Respect: our team is well respected and supported by a great group of people!
What do we do?

  • We like to think of ourselves as technology evangelists – we like to do new stuff!
  • Create superior high-quality designs and ensure existing ones are top of the class
  • We work on web applications, so experience with HTML and CSS will come in handy.
  • We do a little bit of fancy UX stuff with jQuery and other client-side frameworks.
  • Continually raise the bar in terms of standards, processes and practices.
  • Bring the wow factor; contribute to the development of new and existing interface concepts, design and framework
What about you?

  • Enduring commitment to the development and enhancement of websites
  • Happy to work collaboratively with a team and deliver well thought-out solutions.
  • Ability to optimise images for the web
  • Strong track record in creating market leading designs
  • Good understanding of front-end technologies, including HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, jQuery
For more senior Front End Developers, we would be looking for:

  • Architecting and developing complex JavaScript-powered applications
  • Use of custom written JavaScript
  • Understanding of OOP
  • Some experience in AJAX techniques
  • Experience integrating with server-side code (PHP/Wordpress/.Net) to produce dynamic pages
  • Experience designing and developing responsive design websites
  • CSS, including LESS & SASS
  • Experience working with version control systems such as git
  • Excitement about emerging web technologies.
  • Javascript frameworks & libraries such as React or Angular to create rich interactive content
  • Template engines such as Handlebars, Knockout or Mustache
  • Strong understanding of Wordpress/PHP back-end development
  • JavaScript unit testing tools – such as Jasmine, Protractor and Jest
  • Knowledge of how to interact with RESTful APIs and formats (JSON, XML)
