Awesome opportunity for a skilled Front End Developer with full stack potential to join at a cutting edge Sheffield-based Digital Products Development Agency. We welcome applications from self-taught developers and graduates alike.
Front End Developer
Sheffield city centre
£32,000 – £36,000 + 39 Days Holidays, Flexible hours & optional remote working + More Perks
Full Stack Training Provided
4 Day a week (Pro Rata) option available
Company Values: + Innovate + Make a difference + Don't leave anyone behind
Who we are:
We are a creative, ambitious, tight-knit tech business, where team members are given real responsibility and a chance to make a difference. A difference not just for the company, but for the many charitable and voluntary sector clients we support. A graduate degree is not a necessity. We welcome applications from self-taught developers and graduates alike.
We are based in Sheffield city centre, but currently all working from home. We have a lovely bright office with bricks and beams and fresh ground coffee. Once COVID-19 has passed, you can choose to work from the office or remotely or a mixture of both.
The Front End Developer Role:
Your job will be to bring your enthusiasm and drive to our technical team, to be involved in all our requirements and design sessions, to share responsibility for the delivery and maintenance of all our products with the rest of your team and above all to fit in seamlessly with the positive and fun environment we're passionate about preserving.
The kind of activities you could be involved with are:
+ Designing and updating the user experience for the Donation Station and Discovery Station desktop applications and improving the UI.
+ Adding new features to the desktop applications.
+ Maintaining and updating the backend infrastructure and APIs written in Python/Django.
+ Integrating hardware devices to expose them to be used via a Windows service written in C# and creating simple API endpoints that the desktop applications can use to communicate with hardware.
It would also be beneficial if you have experience in any of the following, but we do not expect you to know all of these and are happy to provide you support in learning more while you work with us:
Python / Django
C# (.NET) Windows desktop apps
Nw.js (or Electron)
Postgres / MySQL
Jest / Cypress testing
You'll need to have the right blend of creativity, enthusiasm and drive to make a success of this challenging role. You'll be given the chance to contribute as much as you're comfortable with in requirements and design sessions, so this is your chance to have your voice heard. If you have ideas for how to better develop software with new technologies, we want to hear them!
You'll be rewarded with:
+ A starting salary of £32k – £36k
+ Statutory pension contributions
+ A generous holiday allowance (39 days, including bank holidays)
+ A long Christmas break
+ Flexible hours and optional remote working
+ Adjustable height desks
