  • Helping to maintain internal processes and standards in collaboration with other members of the tech team
.
  • Identifying interesting new technology-related trends, techniques, tools and methodologies.
  • Mentoring less experienced team members.

Requirements

  • Strong knowledge of frontend web technologies (HTML5, CSS3) including modern CSS standards and use of preprocessors (eg. Sass, PostCSS).
  • Working knowledge of frontend build tools (Node, Webpack).
  • Experience with NodeJS server-side rendering.

  • Good Unix/Linux and shell skills (we use Docker for everything).

The mindset we are looking for

  • Be proactive; you get out what you put in.
  • Show talent; make us feel like we’ll never be that good.
  • Attention to detail; we worry, fret and polish till it’s right.

What you’ll get out of it

We’re a small company and a tight team - we work collaboratively, we share load, we have deep specialist experience but often blend roles.

We’re also a tech start-up   —  researching, prototyping and building our own products as part of our R&D process. You’ll be actively involved in this with opportunities to explore technologies you’re most interested in.

We pay fair London wages, encourage decent amounts of holiday and support remote and flexible working. To make sure our staff are as safe as possible during the pandemic, we are all working from home, with mature systems and processes in place that make this as easy as possible. In 2021 we’ll be making fresh decisions about how and where we work. It will be flexible, you’ll be allowed to work from home if you like it and there will be alternatives if you don’t.
