Role Specification

I am currently on the hunt for a passionate and talented JavaScript Technical Lead to join a successful eCommerce retail brand based in Central Manchester that are looking to disrupt the current market and grow a world-class engineering team. As the JavaScript Technical Lead your role will involve technically leading the team through analysis, design, development, testing, release and post-production support while liaising with all members of the wider team including Delivery Leads, Technical Architects, Systems Analysts and UX/UI Designers.

As JavaScript Technical Lead you will be technical authority within the Front End team, and therefore responsible for delivering end-to-end solutions in a fast-paced agile environment whilst championing new features and capabilities within the web delivery stream. You will be involved in kick-offs and hand offs, particularly around architectural changes or large pieces of new functionality and above all else ensure best practice is maintained across the department.

Skills required

  • Proven experience providing unparalleled technical leadership including growing a team of high-performing developers
  • A sound ability to help us shape a future-fit strategy and technology roadmap for the web space
  • Passion for well designed, testable and efficient code using design patterns and quality development principles
  • Experience in developing high quality, scalable and secure web apps with at least one popular web framework (React, vuejs, Angular2, ES6), javascript and other front-end technologies.
  • Someone who can keep it real, both from a people and technology perspective; you'll respect and appreciate legacy systems and processes, seeing it as an opportunity for change, not a challenge
