About you - Lead Frontend Developer

As the Lead Frontend Developer, you'll work closely with the Software Development Manager and Projects Managers and bring your programming expertise, eye for detail, and leadership skills to take ownership of the maintenance and further development of the frontend systems of their entire platform (with over 35 million products advertised!).

The frontend function is currently in its infancy, so you'll be the first to take on this newly created frontend lead role. You'll be comfortable managing and mentoring junior developers, skilled in architecting software solutions, testing at multiple levels, setting delivery expectations, code reviews, and being an excellent communicator and role model. They'll listen to your ideas and recommendations and give you the opportunitiy to shape the future of their platform.

What they look for:

  • You can code in HTML, CSS, Javascript with your eyes closed (not literally)
  • Mentoring and Leadership of less experienced developers
  • Architecture, testing, setting delivery expecations and code reviews come naturally to you

What they'd be blown away by:

  • Frontend frameworks - React, Vue, Angular etc.
  • Knowledge or experience of PHP, MySQL/NoSQL
  • Custom development and e-commerce experience

What's in it for you

Trusted, dedicated, supportive, caring, ethical... They really care about supporting small businesses, not competing with them. They're passionate about going above and beyond for their sellers, customers, local communities, charities, and of course for YOU. They want you not to have to worry about things like the school run, having to commute, having a good work-life balance - they've got you covered with flexi time, remote working and family-friendly policies. They also genuinely care and really value their employees, so much so that they'll share some of the business value with you through their employee share scheme and a bonus scheme. And don't even worry about taking time off, with 33 days holiday, they encourage you to spend time with your friends, family and doing things you love. They care about your career development and happiness, and are committed to providing an inclusive, positive and transparent culture, where everyone wants each other to succeed.
