If you’re a JavaScript Front End Developer looking for an exciting contract to kick start you 2021, this role is for you!

About the Job:

We’re looking for a Front End Developer to join Somo working on a large project with a well established client of ours to implement a large 3rd party system integration with their current platform. 

This role will focus on web app development where you’ll work closely with a mixture of Back End Developers, Technical Architects, Front End Developers, UX and UI Designers, Product Managers and QA Engineers that follow a Scrum based agile methodology led by a dedicated Technical BA.

You will need to demonstrate solid front-end skills (CSS, JavaScript, HTML) with an emphasis on best practice e.g. valid and semantic code, code future proofing and reuse, optimisation and security.


About You:

You will be a strong Front End Developer with previous experience writing unit test scripts in collaboration with the QA Engineers. You’ll also be proficient with HTML and CSS with a good understanding of code versioning tools like Git and GVN. 

A whizz in React and Redux, working on responsive and mobile based projects is what you pride yourself in. Previous projects have provided you with experience in client side scripting and JavaScript frameworks such as Gatsby and TypeScript.

Collaboration is key with fellow developers and designers to conceive implementation strategies and participate in review sessions with the client i.e. assessing the technical feasibility of UI/UX Designs.
