Front End Developer required for a tech start-up in Manchester who are continuing to grow due to the success of their product offering. You'll be joining a small but high calibre team of Engineers who are working with cutting edge technologies to continue the rapid progression of the company.

The Company:

You will be joining an organisation with a driven, ambitious and forward thinking leadership team. I had the pleasure of listening to one of the co-founders on a panel discussion recently and it was immediately obvious how integral an inclusive culture is for this organisation when adding to the close-knit team.

A data focused company who offer their customers solutions when it comes to customer attraction and retention - with some big names using their product.

Due to continued success and the passion of the Directors the organisation are close to securing their next round of funding which will allow them to continue their upward trajectory.

The Role:

As a part of a small team you will be given a lot of responsibility from the get go and as a result be happy to make decisions based on your own intuition. The team have high standards and would expect you to not be phased by any language or tool - simply research it and if it works better than the current tech, change it up.

The Engineering team are the life blood of this business and as such are given a lot of freedom to play with new technologies, different ways of approaching the work and in general have a colossal impact on the way the business runs.

As the only Front End specialist in this team you will have ultimate responsibilty for the User Interface and you'll be able to jump seamlessly from writing high quality code to stepping back and thinking about the User Experience.

You:

Working in a start-up isn't for everyone.

This role is not for you if you fancy a big pay day in a large company where the work you do is caught up in red tape or never actually sees the light of day.

If you love the sound of flexibility at work - both in the technologies used and also being able to work from home a couple of days per week - this could be the role for you.

If you are naturally inquisitive and are always striving to become a better Developer in a team who will make you feel important from day one - it could be a match made in heaven.

Tech Stack:

The most imporant thing for the CTO are solid fundamentals. You will know HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, jQuery, SASS/LESS inside and out.

If you have had the opportunity to play around with one of the 3 million new JavaScript libraries that would be a big plus, especially if you can show why a particular framework might work best with the current tech stack.

Package:

Salary on offer is up to £35k DOE with flexible working hours, remote working where applicable and the chance to be part of a start-up who are on their way to achieving big things in Manchester and indeed further afield.

This role is fairly urgent due to the amount of project work on going so please don't hesitate to apply and feel free to give Liam or Natasha a call at Cathcart Associates to have a confidential discussion.
