Front end developer / designer

A market leading ecommerce company is looking for a front end developer / designer after securing a multimillion pound cash injection earlier in the year.

The Business:

This business is looking to build an inhouse development and web design team. This role is the first hire they are looking to make so you will be joining at a fairly senior level.

Thanks to a cash injection from their investors, this company have been able to re-vamp their ecommerce platform by migrating from Magento to a new Shopify system.

This platform migration has already been completed by several agencies up to date, so this will give you and the new inhouse team a fast, responsive canvas to begin developing and designing on.


You will need to be a self-starter and ideally charismatic too! This will be so you can speak with the various different stake holders and teams in a fast paced business environment.

Excellent HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript skills are essential.

Thanks to you being the first developer in the team, you will get the opportunity to champion whatever tech you deem best to expand and improve the platform be it React / Angular or something else entirely.
