Backend Developer (Javascript) - Node, MondoDB, Express, REST API's, Redis, GraphQL, AWS, Cordova, Firebase, Vue.js...

*Node knowledge is not essential - love backend and fancy a switch to Node? cool!*

Flexible office/remote working (what works for you?), commutable to Swansea area - Upto 40k - 33 days holiday, flexible working hours, potential profit sharing, annual and performance pay reviews, pension...

The Opportunity

You'll be joining a rapidly growing and successful tech and innovations company with a huge passion for bringing the physical and digital worlds together and transforming mere ideas in to successful products. They're all about making the impossible possible, and they're certainly doing a cracking job - they've just been nominated for one of the UK's most prestigious environmental sustainability awards, and that's only the tip of the iceberg!

With their relatively small, fun, but growing team, this company have all the characteristics of a startup, but with the stability of 2 successful rival businesses that joined forces to give rise to who they are today and have been for the last few years.

They're flexible, and don't expect you to be in the office all the time, but if you're someone who prefers 100% remote, this won't be for you - they're a sociable bunch and would like to see you at some point in person depending on what works for you.

The Role - Backend Developer (Node, MondoDB, Express, REST API's, Redis, GraphQL, AWS, Cordova, Firebase, Vue.js...

You'll have the opportunity to work on their own products (new ideas from the ground up, as well as improving existing ones), AND bespoke solutions-oriented projects for clients across sport, agriculture, health, transport ... from ideas, to making lives better, helping the environment and helping your favourite sports teams win (Rubgy legends? Ice Hockey giants!?) and much more! Evolution, innovation and solution development will be at the core of what you do.

You'll be joining a small team of 4 developers working closely with the CTO who you'll be reporting to, who is also heavily hands on (which he'd like to change!) - this is where you'll come in with Node.

If you have no experience with Node but a desire to learn, they'll put in the time to help you.

You'll play a significant role in being the brains on the backend, but you can still get involved across the stack and in other areas. They want to hear your ideas and will give you all you need to grow and mould your career path.

Key Requirements

  • 1+ years commercial development experience
  • Strong expertise with backend development - Node, PHP or Python ideally
  • Experience building API's (they mainly work with REST)
  • Willingness and desire to learn Node

What's in it for you

You'll have autonomy, variety in your work, meaningful and plentiful projects, they want to hear your ideas, they want you to progress (want to be a manager and build a team around you? ok!), they want you to developer (seen a course you want to do? They'll pay for it!), they'll look after you (worked on a new product launch that was succesful? They'll share profits with you!). You'lll be joining a growing business looking to double their dev team in the next 6 months and continue to grow the business from there, and you'll play a key role in its direction. Plus, you'll have the opportunity to work on product-based AND bespoke project-based development.
