Javascript Lead

VANRATH are excited to be partnering with a R+D Software House ramping up in Belfast.

We are keen to talk with high profile Javascript and Node.js Engineers who want to help create the world’s smartest network of brands, customers and retailers.

Each month, more than half a billion consumers view and share opinions of millions of products in our clients network.

Their technology platform gives leading brands and retailers solutions that enable them to engage with consumers wherever they shop – online, in-store or on their mobile devices.

Our client:

Our client represents some of the world’s leading companies across a wide range of industries including retail, apparel, automotive, consumer electronics and travel.
They pride themselves on their unique culture. They are a company that values passion, innovation, authenticity, generosity, respect, teamwork, and performance.

The role:

They’re seeking a seasoned React lead to join a team focused on building the next generation of consumer-facing displays. This role is part architecture, part software development, part internal evangelism, and part consulting; it touches every consumer-facing application within our clients business, with a combined reach of more than 700 million unique visitors every month. If you’re looking for an opportunity to work alongside a slew of other smart people on large-scale client-side applications used by real people on a huge swath of the internet, keep reading

We’re looking for new team members to help our client:

Prototype and scale new display applications

Build client-facing tooling to configure consumer applications and interact with our clients services

The ideal person:

This is a front-end role, so standard rules apply: JavaScript, HTML, CSS. However, we’re looking for more than satisfying a list of buzz-words – we’re looking for someone that lives and breathes web applications.

Iterators, promises, modules and proxies excite you

You can articulate why you like or dislike React compared to other frameworks

You’d rather use CSS Transforms than $.animate

A browser’s devtools are as much in your toolbelt as your text editor is

You can explain how webpack loaders work, and why you’d use webpack in the first place

We are looking for someone that has experience with the challenges of third-party JavaScript application development, or at least the challenges in single-page or progressive-web applications. Asynchronously loading pieces of a large application, debugging large asynchronous chains, and shipping bullet-proof, tested code are skills we need on a daily basis.

As part of the team, we are looking for someone committed to excellence. That means building collaborative relationships up, down, and across the organization; staying positive when tackling tough challenges that often require cross-team contribution; taking pride in not just shipping massive-scale applications, but shipping the best massive-scale applications.

If that sounds like you, then we should definitely talk.

You’ve authored third-party JavaScript applications.

You’ve deployed static assets and Node applications to AWS.

You have considered and articulate opinions (preferably based on experience) about the challenges of front-end development in an “enterprise” setting.

You’re excited about using Kanban / Lean software development methodologies.

You like speaking in public about what you’re working on.

You have a BS or MS in computer science.

Early applications are advised as these sorts of opportunities typically come up once every 4-5 years.

This is a genuine opportunity to fast track your career and work on arguably the most exciting projects seen in Belfast in a number of years.

Our client will tailor an attractive benefits package to attract top talent. They will pay above average salaries for above average talent with potential signing on bonuses. Initial confidential informal meetings with the the client can happen within 24 hours of receiving your CV.
