£475 - £550 a day

Front End developer - JavaScript developer x5 - Central London - 12 month contract
Starting March & April: £475 - £600pd TBC
Project: Greenfield platform in banking environment - React - React native - Falcor
JavaScript developer? Like new tech? Love collaborative and challenging greenfield projects?
As leaders in user experience, over the last 10 years a small & independent digital consultancy have transformed digital experience for industry leading companies globally. Whether large enterprise organisations or household brands, their agile process allows them to work collaboratively and iteratively design, test and deliver amazing new products.
The key to their success? The people in the company. In particular their energy, experience, devotion, knowledge, skill & attitude. There is a clear philosophy/set of values and everyone's in tune.
Blockers have been removed where possible and there's a maturing agile environment that encourages collaboration, giving developers the freedom to work together and create outstanding products. Quality is not just an objective, it's a necessity.
As the ui developer - JavaScript developer - front end developer where do you come in?
We need 5 senior ui developer - JavaScript developer contractors to start for an initial 12 months in April or May. You'll work with the product owner & user experience/design team build a new platform from scratch. Top secret stuff for the moment, however all will be revealed in due course.
Architecture is still in late discussions. It will be modern, but more importantly fit for purpose and not just as it's the last fad. Will include react - react native and falcor for data fetching
All ui developer - JavaScript developer contractors will be senior contractors in a flat team. It's unlikely you will be the smartest developer in the room, and that will be a positive for you. They really care about code quality and hope that you do too. The team will grow fast which means more adaptable and proactive people will likely thrive. It will feel more like start up at the beginning. This doesn't mean long days and high pressure but does mean you'll need to roll your sleeves up and work as supportive team! Eventually there will be over 45 people working in smaller high performance scrum teams.
These are predominantly Front End positions, however if you have Node.JS skills they will likely be used.
We ARENT going to write a shopping list but people will likely have experience in a combination of the following areas:
Vanilla JavaScript - OO JavaScript
Functional JavaScript (Or an interest in if not commercial experience)
ES2015 - ES6 - ES7
CSS3 - SCSS - less - sass etc
Modern build tools - Gulp - grunt - webpack - npm - Redux
Data viz - D3 - d3.JS - d3js
TDD - Mocha, Chai, QUnit, Jasmine etc
Modern frameworks & libraries - React - react JS - angular - Lodash - knockout
Cross device/platform
Mobile apps - Hybrid & mobile web ( cordova - react native etc )
Redux and flux-like models
Isomorphic JavaScript applications
Sounds good so far?
Interviews start from now, so please send an updated CV.
Ill run through the position in more details and if we both agree to proceed after I've disclosed their name, the next stage will involve talking to the tech lead.
