Are you a Principal Front-End Engineer who would relish the chance to steer the strategic direction of a global web platform?

Would you like to be the key decision maker on the architectural design and which technology is used to build a high scale, transactional system?

How about technically lead an engineering team that is truly committed to Agile?

Then why don’t you come work with us? We are a travel company that employs over 100,000 across the globe. We have a broad portfolio that allows us to help pretty much every type of holiday-goer imaginable.

The broad portfolio was acquired through acquisition and led to us having many different platforms used by each of the brands.

We’ve been undergoing a huge transformation to consolidate our portfolio and as part of that we have been building one platform that can be used by all the brands.

We now need a Principal Front-End Engineer to join us to help steer the technical direction of the platform. Your role will be to collaborate, make technical and architectural decisions on web projects.

You’ll still be very hands on, and will be using React, node.js, GraphQL to build out the web platform.

The Principal Front-End Engineer will also take ownership of their output, ensuring their code is written to a high standard and will unit test everything before it’s deployed. We also use Flow type system to ensure consistency in approach.

As a Principal Front-End Engineer, you’ll be expected to play a lead role during the Agile ceremonies. You’ll be guiding daily stand-ups and end of sprint retros.

If this sounds like something you could sink your teeth into, apply now, sending through your contact details and stating your interest in the Principal Front-End Engineer role. If you’ve got a CV already prepared, then that would be handy too but not essential.
