**Software Engineer - Front End - Manchester (Remote Working Available) - Up To £47K**
My client, a leading online retailer, currently has an exciting opportunity for an experienced Front End Engineer to join their established but rapidly expanding Engineering Practice based in Manchester (Remote working available).
Over the last 12 months a new microclient frontend architecture using next.js has been developed to replace a hybrid of Rails, React and Backbone.
To support this, a new shared component library using React and Storybook has been created. The new microclients are built on a Node.j.s platform running in Kubernetes powered by a CI/CD pipeline.
The goal is now to create a scalable frontend architecture to rapidly create new brands and websites
Polygot thinking is a must as my client uses a variety of programming languages such as Ruby, C# and Python.
