Senior Front End Developer

  • Contract type:Permanent
  • Salary/Rate:£60,000-£80,000
  • Duration:Permanent
  • Start Date:ASAP
  • Location:Remote, GB
  • Reference:J16673

Futureheads are exclusively partnered with one of the world’s leading staycation companies – the Airbnb equivalent for outdoor holidays. With their Head of Engineering recently joining them, they are now looking to scale the team by bringing in a Senior Front End Engineer who will help contribute towards making them an outstanding tech-first business.

As we move towards a staycation led market, it proves to be a massively growing industry. As a business they offer affordable holidays, whist supporting sustainability concerns around carbon footprint and localism.

They have been listed in the Financial Times ‘1000 fastest growing companies’ in Europe for the past three years!

Their digital transformation roadmap starts with the rebuild of their site using VueJS, which is due to be launched in June. You will take ownership of their front end architecture, leading technical decisions around pipelines, tooling and processes.

They plan to hire additional front end developers once this key figure is onboard, which means you will get the opportunity to help grow the team, whilst introducing better quality engineering standards across the board.

To be considered for this role you should have:

  • Excellent JavaScript experience, with knowledge of at least one JavaScript front-end framework (ideally Vue.JS but Angular/React/Ember will also be considered )
  • Demonstrable proficiency in HTML5 and CSS3.
  • Have an appreciation for the challenges involved in building adaptive and responsive websites.
  • You care about code quality and are familiar with testing front‐end code using various frameworks (e.g Jasmine, Mocha, Chai etc.).
  • Have a good appreciation of workflow and tooling (such as Grunt, Gulp, etc.)
  • Have experience of working with both internal and third‐party API’s
