Front End Developer (remote from UK or Cambridge) 1268

Third Light is seeking a talented Front End Developer with excellent JavaScript and CSS skills, to help us build the UIs that let organisations 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 its front-end rebuilt from the ground up using modern JavaScript technology.

We need someone with the enthusiasm and talent for creating solid, reliable, highly-polished UIs as we pride ourselves on the quality of our highly-interactive UI with its sharp, modern aesthetic.

Above all we’re looking for a solid understanding of modern web technologies, WebSocket-based real time architectures and how single-page apps are architected and built using the JavaScript ecosystem.

You will be working in a small team with a well-architected, clean and robust codebase built with TypeScript, AngularJS and SCSS/Sass with a bright, modern, highly-interactive interface that looks, 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 a large Kanban board. We 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 | smart cropping | 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

  • Solid understanding of building complex, single-page JavaScript apps
  • Production experience of Angular, React, Ember, Vue or similar technologies.
  • Fluency with JavaScript, TypeScript, CSS and SASS
  • Understanding of modern Node.js-based Javascript compiler tools
  • Broad understanding of unit, service and integration testing
  • Enthusiasm for creating UI's and a clear understanding of what makes an interface easy to use
  • You may be considering front end developer jobs in Cambridge such as: Front End Developer | Angular Developer | JavaScript Developer | UI Engineer | UI Developer etc.

Our technology stack - we'll welcome your influence

AngularJS (with gradual move to Angular) | TypeScript | Node.js toolset | JavaScript | HTML5 | CSS3 | SASS| SVG | Canvas | WASM | Electron| PDF.js | WebSockets | Drag & Drop | Infinite scrolling | Web Notifications | and more

  • 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

If you wish to work remotely: 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.
