We are on the look out for an awesome Senior Javascript Engineer to join us in a particularly exciting period for us!

In this role you will be responsible for planning and implementing cross-stack web applications within a tight knit, friendly cross functional team, this role will report to the Software Engineering Manager, and will be relied upon to support the SEM and the wider business in building enterprise grade bespoke software solutions within the domain of learning and training.

What we’re looking for

We’re looking for someone who is passionate about delivering high quality code, with a focus on security and performance, whilst maintaining a great eye for detail in the implementation of web UI, is self motivated and can work autonomously, but most importantly understands how to work collaboratively as part of a small agile team.

Essential skills and experience

  • JavaScript: This is the foundation of much of our application development, so extensive industry experience here is key. We use this in a number of forms but mainly:
    • React for the frontend
    • Express for the backend
  • HTML/CSS: Seems obvious, but we are serious about high quality HTML to ensure that we can deliver enterprise level experiences that are accessible to all.

Additional skills that we look for

Whilst not critical, these tools are a big part of the work we do, and we’ll be looking favourably on any experience you have with these.

  • GraphQL
  • Typescript
  • PHP
  • Python
  • MySQL/Postgres
  • Git
  • Docker
