Want to work for an established, yet rapidly growing innovative technology business who have received investment to the tune of £15million? This is a company who are looking to grow, to expand their teams across multiple areas and most importantly to establish themselves as one of the most exciting businesses in the UK in their sector. They have an impressive list of clients they already work with, and are at the point where they can currently be very selective about the type of projects they take on. They have some further clients, with aspirations that match theirs and they want the best Front End JavaScript Developers to help them deliver to their range of clients. Technology is at the core of this business, and they provide a dynamic solution to each client which has allowed them to give a real hands on and personable feel to their services.

The frontend team writes and maintains the browser based applications and software using a combination of Symfony, for API's and standard sites, and Ember for applications that have a lot of interactivity and state. They deal with building management and reporting interfaces to display the millions of events that our systems process each day.

  • You'll maintain interfaces from reporting, real-time dashboards and call handling, work on the core JavaScript tracking library in use for millions of events every day, and also work on a variety of internal tools to assist our various other departments.
  • You'll do all this while maintaining high standards, adhering to team conventions and constantly improving code, even if it wasn't yours to start with.
  • We work in a dev-ops environment, so you'll need to maintain your own development server and take responsibility when publishing code to staging or production servers. You'll ensure code is sufficiently documented and tested, taking pride in your work and catching bugs early on.
  • As well as coding, you'll take part in project planning and scoping, helping the product team to understand requirements and form functional and technical specs.
  • There are opportunities to take ownership of projects, research and adopt new technologies and propose new developments and you'll add credible insight to development discussions.
  • You might also provide technical support to the operations and client facing teams, fixing bugs, giving advice and communicating technical concepts to non-technical staff. That includes maintaining our internal and user documentation.

This is an opportunity to work with one of the fastest growing development teams in London. Technology is at the forefront of this business, it's a fantastic environment with the core principle of helping you and others around you to be successful. Dress down, cool offices, breakfast bars, personal development, flexible working hours, incentives. This is a genuinely brilliant place to work. Furthermore, they really do believe in people and want to give everyone the opportunity to learn there. If you aren't the complete package, but can show willing and aptitude then they are completely behind helping you to achieve. You will be working in the shard, which if nothing else is a good place to sit and code on some of the most innovative products on the market.


  • Web application development background in the marketing technology industry. Some understanding of analytics software and online marketing will certainly help.
  • Passionate about well-structured code, good design and clean, well thought out interfaces. You'll have experience building single page applications in modern browsers, and everything that entails. You'll have a strong JavaScript knowledge, including but not limited to, ES6 syntax. Experience with Ember.js would be advantageous, but not essential.
  • Educated to college or degree level in Computer Science, or have equivalent experience you'll need to have a minimum of 2 years of JavaScript experience under your belt and be confident with the Linux command-line.
  • Engineers that are able to dive in, and answer questions that have not been asked before, we work in a sector that provides an exciting opportunity to solve truly unique problems. You'll need to be excellent at communicating your findings in new areas, and on new technologies.
  • You'll be self-motivated and accountable, performing effectively to tight deadlines both independently and as part of a team. You'll have a results-first mentality and a strong customer/ client focus with the attention to detail required to be part of the team building a world c
