Dynamic SaaS Company

Upto £45,000 DOE

If you’re a seasoned JavaScript Developer, this is a rare job opportunity to join a dynamic SaaS company whose heart is near Brighton, Sussex and is in the early phase of growth. With a blend of home and office working, this flexible company offers a modern and adaptable lifestyle where “work to live” is the mantra but everyone is passionate and earnest about their responsibilities.

Starting as a small web development agency in 2012, the Founder was busy delivering great work for local clients in Brighton. Just 4 years later, he achieved the opportunity to focus exclusively on building his own digital products and hasn’t looked back since. Business has seen year-on-year success with their worldwide audience of writers. The company is now focused on further developing new and existing products to be enjoyed by and empower people without getting in their way.

In response to their growing successes, we are hiring an experienced JavaScript Developer into the team.

THE ROLE

Reporting to the Founder, as Lead JavaScript Developer you will play an important role in developing customer facing interfaces and processes. Whether this is developing a core JS library to be used across multiple interfaces or developing JS-based technologies which include everything from browser extensions to Word integration.

Your enthusiasm will drive projects from planning and executing changes to product web interfaces from existing bespoke WYSIWYG to reactive elements, used feedback mechanisms and more. To fit in with this team, you’ll get personal reward from resolving JS and interface bugs, and even from resolving customer issues when needed. For instance, your contribution in helping the non-JS support queue is valuable by being proactive in responding to and resolving customer issues, a task which is carried out by all of the team.

TO BE SUCCESSFUL 

  • Strong JavaScript skills with a real passion for what you do! (would suit the kind of person who is prepared to challenge PHP developers about why they should be using server-side JS instead!)
  • JS unit testing experience
  • Experienced in building Chrome extensions, plugin for Google Docs, Word, Outlook, Gmail, WordPress, Magento, bespoke WYSIWYG or comparable
  • Front-end experience including HTML, CSS, AJAX etc.
  • Previous experience working with SaaS business would be beneficial
  • Ideally some server-side JS experience (e.g. node.js)
  • Familiarity with modern JS frameworks and libraries like React, Angular
  • Experience with PHP & DevOps would be a bonus

Embracing tech, the team uses tools like Bitbucket, Google docs, 15Five and Asana to be efficient and effective in their work. At their core, they empower each other to make good choices, for themselves, their families and their company. Their focus is on putting people at the forefront of everything they do, enabling the team to enjoy a great work/life balance. They also enjoy an unlimited holiday allowance and a supportive, passionate Founder.

Early appointed team members recall their own attractions to the company which have been met with empowerment, clear goal definitions and the opportunity to make visible differences. With a culture encouraging of creative thinking as well as providing a listening ear to reasoned voices going against the general consensus, this is an environment where you’re encouraged to experiment and empowered make your ideas happen.
