Front End Developer (remote or Cambridge) 1259

Third Light is seeking a talented front end developer to build the UIs that let content owners manage their digital media files easily.

You may work remotely as your full time arrangement, joining a team that already includes remote workers.

We’re a design-led software business with ambition. We believe business software should be as usable as consumer software. Our highly-acclaimed browser-based product has recently been redesigned and our front-end rebuilt from the ground up using modern JavaScript technology.

We will welcome your enthusiasm and talent for creating solid, reliable, highly-polished UIs with a sharp, modern aesthetic to lead us onwards.

Above all we’re looking for a deep understanding of modern web technologies and how single-page apps are architected and built using the JavaScript ecosystem. You will inherit a well-architected, clean and robust codebase built with TypeScript, Angular and SCSS/Sass. This pulls data over Websockets and REST to an increasingly Go-based microservice backend. It behaves and feels like an app rather than a website.

We employ an iterative, design-led process where everyone gets a say. We're agile and manage our work using a gentle scrum process and encourage a lightweight, productive approach to development.

Now is a great time to join us with lots of new code to write; your opinion and expertise will be valued from day one.

Upcoming projects include

Scriptable automation & workflow system | approvals system & tools | annotation tools | a chat system | mobile apps | desktop syncing apps | a video clip editing tool | object, face and place tagging interfaces | mapping/geolocation interfaces | improvements to our design process workflows | < your idea here! >

We're looking for

  • Deep understanding of building complex, single-page JavaScript apps, or sophisticated websites
  • Strong competency with Angular - or skills in any of React, Ember, Vue and ready to get to grips with Angular
  • Fluency with JavaScript, TypeScript, CSS and SASS
  • Understanding of modern Node.js-based JavaScript compiler tools
  • Enthusiasm for creating UI's and a clear understanding of what makes an interface easy to use
  • You may be considering senior or lead front end developer jobs in Cambridge such as: Front End Developer | Angular Developer | JavaScript Developer | JavaScript Developer | UI Developer | React Developer etc.

Salary and benefits

  • £50,000+ negotiable - we're keeping an open mind
  • Contributory pension scheme, childcare voucher scheme
  • 25 days holiday | flexible hours | office based or home working | bicycle and free car parking (car sharing is encouraged) | good coffee (and tea) | choice of high end workstation | an adorable Beagle to brighten the office

Remote working: to help you get up to speed, you'll work at our office for the first three to four weeks. You'll then attend sprint show and tell meetings in person one day in every three weeks, and be here two or three weeks each year for knowledge sharing. We'll cover reasonable travel expenses and accommodation costs. We'll also cover reasonable costs incurred from running your home office.
