Lead Front End Developer [React] Huge Greenfield Cloud Platform

Lead Front End Developer required to be the hands on technical authority for a major Greenfield cloud platform.

The successful Lead Front End Developer will own the FE architecture, set (and enforce) engineering standards and lead development of this new React system from scratch. You'll work closely with the backend tech lead, devops engineers and wider Front End team to design the solution making sure the focus on ensuring the system can scale effectively.

All JavaScript in the company is ES6 (ES2015) + with teams starting to implement the new features coming with ES2017 (e.g. Async and Await). ALL code is written in a TDD fashion and deployed via a fully automated build and deployment pipeline running on Docker, Jenkins and Kubernetes into AWS.

We are expecting an expert knowledge of JavaScript, HTML5 and CSS3 including modern pre-processors (SASS/LESS) and the methodologies that support their effective use (BEM, SMACCS etc.). Whilst knowledge of React, Redux, React-Router and other supporting libraries would be great they are categorically not hung upon particular frameworks. If you have a background in influencing the build of large scale JavaScript applications and care about engineering best practices (TDD/BDD, CI/CD etc.) then will still want to hear from you.

This tem boast a group of 60+ technologists who are some of the best JavaScript, DevOps and Java Engineers in London. Everything you will work on is Greenfield as this is an entirely new system and they have teams working on existing ones already. There is a clear part up to principle engineer from this position and onwards to architect further down the line.

If you are serious about leading complex cloud application builds, in a tech/product focused business with brilliant engineers this is the role for you.

They are very strong salaries and benefits packages to match including a bonus, £2k training, 28 days holidays, countless social events and support to get actively involved in the community as part of your daily work.
