What we’re looking for:

We are looking for a Senior Front-End Developer to combine the art of design with the art of programming. Responsibilities include translation of the UI/UX design and wireframes to code that will produce visual elements of the application. You will bridge the gap between graphical design and technical implementation, taking an active role on both sides.

The Senior Front-end Developer will work in a multi-disciplinary team with the goal of designing and developing world-class experiences, delighting users and transforming businesses. The Front-end Developer will work closely with UX and UI designers to produce front-end solutions and prototypes.

Our Client is currently working remotely, until it is safe for our employees to return to work. The successful candidate will be virtually onboarded for now.


Essential duties and responsibilities include but are not limited to the following:

  • Develop new user-facing features with a focus on responsive solutions
  • Front-end development through reusable, testable code and libraries
  • Detailed documentation of all developed code and its day-to-day processes
  • Ensure the technical feasibility of UI/UX designs
  • Optimise application for maximum speed and scalability
  • Assure that all user input is validated before submitting to back-end
  • Ongoing evaluation and optimisation of systems
  • Collaborate with other team members and stakeholders
  • Development of personal skill set in-line with industry trends to meet company objectives
  • Growing the front-end team
  • Operate as a senior in the team by providing input, training and guidance to other members of the team.

Skills and Qualifications

  • Excellent understanding of HTML and CSS
  • Excellent understanding of JavaScript Programming Fundamentals

  • Responsive/adaptive development for web and mobile experience.
  • Knowledge of front-end build tools (e.g. Grunt / Gulp)
  • Knowledge of front-end dependency management (e.g. NPM / Bower)
  • Basic knowledge of image authoring tools, to be able to crop, resize, or perform small adjustments on an image. Familiarity with tools such as as-as Gimp or Photoshop is a plus.
  • Proficient understanding of cross-browser and mobile compatibility issues and ways to work around them.
  • Proficient understanding of code versioning tools, such as Git
  • 5+ Years’ experience in Front-end Web Development
