Contract Type
An ambitious new technology company, based in Exeter, is seeking a Front-End Dev to join their ever expanding team of experts. Developing data-tools and software solutions to optimise city systems, the business looks to improve the day-to-day lives of ordinary people everywhere. The team is built of individuals at the top of their fields and the business is committed to building the best environment for its staff possible, with everything from impressive office space to using cutting edge tech and tools to stay at the forefront of the industry. In amazing offices, 20 minutes from the beach, they are happy to consider those looking to relocate for a higher quality of life.

What experience you`ll need

You will need a minimum of 3-5 years` front-end development experience and will be interested in moving towards a full stack position. Your primary tech stack will be based around HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript, with at least two frameworks including Angular, Backbone, Aurelia, React or Vue. You`ll have an in depth knowledge of web tech and database tools, as well as a focus in your background around visualisation, animation or charting. Ideally you`ll be familiar with using tech such as D3, ChartJS, Contour, Leaflet or Mapbox. You`ll need knowledge of standard UI testing frameworks like Selenium or Jasmine. You`ll have worked in Agile (Scrum) environments before, as well as with test driven development and version control.

What you`ll be doing

You`ll be working on some fascinating work, collaborating with data scientists and energy & transport consultant, helping the process of commercialising new products by handling the visualisation aspect of the products and by building web based tools for internal use. The business itself, while very securely supported by venture capitalists and its sister company, is still in its infancy and so you`ll be part of an extremely exciting time that will define what the business looks like in the future. You`ll be keeping up to date with the latest tech in the industry, as well as new trends and methodologies to keep your team at the very forefront of what`s out there.

What you`ll get in return for your talents

As mentioned, this is one of the most exciting times for the company and you`ll get to be part of defining what the future looks like. Backed by venture capitalists, this is a business with all the excitement and energy of a start-up but with the safety and security of something much larger. The offices themselves are amazing, with multiple break-out areas, a huge gym (classes throughout the day), running track, basketball court, cafeteria with locally sourced food and drinks (all free!), amongst many other benefits! They are offering a very generous salary (GBP60K) and of course the chance to know that what you are doing day-to-day will help improve the daily lives of people living in cities everywhere.
