Senior Front End Web Developer

We are looking for a Senior Front End Web Developer who is motivated to combine the art of design with the art of programming. Responsibilities will include translation of the UI/UX design wireframes to actual code that will produce visual elements of the application. You will work with the UI/UX designer and bridge the gap between graphical design and technical implementation, taking an active role on both sides and defining not just how an interface looks, but how it moves, responds and behaves.
 
  • Develop new user-facing features

  • Ensure the technical feasibility of UI/UX prototypes

  • Micro-sites
You will work with back-end developers and will be expected to encourage creativity and efficiency throughout complex digital projects. Due to the pressurised nature of the role, a robust and organised approach to the work is needed to produce the best solutions.
 
A deep understanding of all stages of digital development is as essential as an understanding of the part each developer plays and how it contributes to the end product. You will thrive on new challenges without being intimidated by something unfamiliar. You will be passionate about your work and gain genuine enjoyment from seeing projects through, from start to finish.
