You will be working in a cross-functional team with strategists, designers and other developers to understand project needs and requirements, translate these into new and improved web experience solutions, and collaborate with your team members to bring your ideas to life.

 We have multiple projects with varying technology stacks, however the front-end will likely involve either Angular or React single-page applications or CMS-powered websites (headless, decoupled or server-rendered).

Your day-to-day work will include: front-end solution design and web development in a variety of modern technologies, working in a pair programming model, writing clean, lean, testable and well-documented code, collaborating with the wider team including Quality Analysts and Project Managers in an Agile model.

You will be reporting directly to the Front-end Lead.
