Front End Developer (Angular or React, HTML, CSS) - London - Sports Streaming - £55k - £65k

This platform is going to be the 'Netflix of Sports' - be a part of the adventure!!

I am working with a highly progressive company who are challenging the status quo and want to achieve 'top dog' status in the sports streaming industry. They are preparing to go head to head with the likes of Sky Sports and BT Sport in providing sporting content online. They already partner and sponsor major sporting events in Football, Cricket, Tennis, Golf and more recently UFC.

They are looking to grow the engineering team by adding an influential Senior Front End Developer with knowledge of JS frameworks, either Angular or React (if you have knowledge of both, then great!), you will be having a technical input into the road map of projects and work with a team of highly skilled and highly motivated developers. The usual excellence with HTML, CSS & SASS/LESS pre-processors are required.

This is a totally Greenfield project and you will be involved in producing something which is potentially game changing.

This role offers the opportunity for a developer to act as a key pivot in a fast moving, exciting new venture within a motivated and energetic broader engineering team. The primary focus of the team will be to provide a great, consistent media consumption experience throughout multiple devices and formats, by building on top of the existing data and video platforms.

Skills and Requirements:

Significant experience as a front end developer
Strong knowledge of JavaScript
Experience developing with JavaScript Frameworks (ideally Angular or React)
Strong knowledge of HTML5, CSS3 and SASS/LESS
Strong knowledge of modern JavaScript workflow (E.g. WebPack, NPM, Grunt etc.)
Advocate for TDD, BDD and familiar with continuous deployment environments
Ideally experience with deployment tools (Jenkins, Ansible, Puppet, Docker etc.)

The guys down there are incredibly driven but at the same time embrace a working culture which is fun and challenging, I personally love the working environment there and if this is something that sparks an interest please feel free to get in touch and we can set up a time to talk in further detail about this.

Hopefully this has given you enough to think about. If you are keen to find out more then please get in touch ASAP. I am contactable via phone on - just ask for Giggs, or email
