JavaScript Engineer Role

As JavaScript Engineer you’ll write robust and scaleable open source code, in vue.js and react.

But this is far more than a bog-standard JavaScript role – it requires a talented individual who is capable of taking ownership and thrives being visible.Quality and standards are really important, as is choosing the right tech stack for the project and ultimately helping the company grow.

You’ll be driven by more than just technology, but have a genuine passion for making a difference, and bring that flair to work with you.

Their ideal employee is a passionate individual, with a real love for JavaScript Engineering. You’ll flourish in a small-but-ambitious, highly visible environment where you can stand up and be counted. The flip side of this of course is great recognition and the satisfaction of knowing what you do counts.
