Senior JavaScript Developer

£50,000 | Birmingham | Permanent
Posted 5 months ago

The Company:

In Birmingham City Centre for a company who are looking for a Developer with an interest in Node.JS and/or Go (or "Golang") with a background and fundamental understanding of JavaScript.

They're an interesting company - their agile methodology revolves around Game of Thrones, so each person is given a character name and their projects are chapters with individual sprints being a story with main characters and supporting acts. It's an interesting way of making things fun in the office, but the main reason behind it all is to provide a context of the overall system, what you're contributing to and how the effects the project and solution as a whole.


The Role:

You'll be joining a gifted team that goes above and beyond the expectations of their clients.

They've implemented a system that can edit most aspects of a website through a plugin, without changing the underlying code, but providing solutions that are non-invasive, clever manipulations and optimisations of the system as a whole.

To get this to work, their product has to be extremely fast to run its processes without impeding the client, but once they're in and have access, that's when the team gets to play with more novel solutions.

For these reasons, and with the amount of things they play with in tech, they're looking for someone who considers programming as a hobby as well as a career and who isn't afraid to learn.


Skillwise:

Any mixture or the below is a great bonus (with the core being JavaScript/node and willingness to use Go/Golang):

Angular
React
AWS, Rackspace, Heroku, Digital Ocean, RESTful APIs
mobile development (in particularly native)
TDD/BDD
PostgreSQL
Bash
Java, Ruby, C, C
iOS/Android (Native)


What you get in return:

Salary: £40,000 - £50,000
Company Pension
Gym membership contributions
Childcare vouchers
Season ticket travel loan
Rent deposit scheme
Hardware loan
