Salary: £40-60k depending on experience

Location: Fully-remote position (working from home)

You should be a true programmer, a software engineer who creates well-engineered, scalable, clean code, and someone who can bring traditional programming knowledge and broad experience across a range of technologies. A keen "technologist", you will always be seeking to learn new things and expand your skills. You should have a very strong grasp of programming theory, and will be able to adapt your knowledge to fit a given situation. You should also be passionate about DRY principles and be able to create robust, reusable code that can easily be extended and maintained.
Our client has a wide range of projects to become involved with, mostly involving SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) web applications, but ranging from traditional CMS and eCommerce websites through to cutting-edge real-time platforms and mobile applications. You will become involved with both Agile and waterfall projects, working on mobile-first, cloud-first, and more.
Their clients range from startups through to multi-nationals; blue-chips to government; financial services to education; and everything in between. You will be required to take ownership of the technical design, development, and implementation of new products and services, as well as support and enhance existing systems.
In addition to a competitive, above-average salary, you will receive security of tenure and job satisfaction, along with a healthy work-life balance and full-time remote working. (You may be required to attend the occasional meeting from time to time - all expenses paid.)
You will need to be able to manage your time well, and work on multiple projects at once (usually two or three). An organised self-starter with effective communication skills, you will need to have good attention to detail, and care about the quality of your work, in order to be a good fit with the friendly and talented team.
This is an excellent opportunity with the potential for long tenure, and plenty of chance for career progression.
You should be confident and competent in all of these, to a high level:
a- Node.js, Express
a- React OR Angular (both is even better!)
a- HTML5, CSS3, responsive UX
a- MVC, MVVC
a- MySQL, NoSQL
a- RESTful APIs, Swagger
a- TDD, BDD, testing frameworks
a- Jasmine, Mocha, Chai, Sinon, Supertest
a- High standard of written and spoken English
The more of these you have experience with, the better:
a- React, React Native, Angular.js, Vue.js, Typescript, rx.js
a- MySQL, PostgreSQL, RethinkDB, MongoDB
a- Python, Ruby, PHP, Go
a- Mobile apps
a- Writing specs and technical documentation
