The Role

As an experienced Full Stack Engineer you’ll have the opportunity to lead technology teams across all stages of the product life cycle: from inception, to proof of concept, to full build and test, launching in market, and operating at scale.

You will be comfortable leading the design of technical solutions covering technology selection, application architecture, CI/CD pipelines and Cloud infrastructure, as well as working closely with teams to develop high quality products following modern engineering best practice.

You will also have the opportunity to contribute to our frog Technology strategy, helping to evolve and broaden the solutions that we provide to our clients as well as influencing our strategic technology choices; sharing both across our global community of technologists.

We will provide you with a brilliant learning ground - the opportunity to experience a variety of work and to develop your skills alongside the teams around you. And we’re one of the few consultancies delivering products to the market!

Why You?

You can

  • Work with various web and mobile technologies. We don’t have set technology stacks, although we lean towards cross-platform and open source frameworks, using cloud services that let us get stuff done quickly. Most of our recent work has used React, Node.js and cloud-native serverless solutions.
  • Deliver value to our clients as quickly as possible. In technology terms, this means we get good quality code and platforms built and shipped and into customers hands as fast as we can.
  • Work within and lead a multi-skilled technology team and broader project team; we’re a team of do-ers and shippers.
  • Lead sessions with client teams and senior stakeholders.
  • Drive to proactively identify and implement improvements to the way we work, with the instinct to recognise when something isn’t working.
  • Reflect on the work we’re doing and how we’re doing it. You’ll be an integral part of the development team and will help define “what good looks like” for the work we do. We’re an agile organisation with a strong culture of feedback and self-improvement.

You have

  • Several years experience with JavaScript (ES6 & TypeScript), in browser and server
  • Experience with modern, CSS styling and layout (framework agnostic) including working with CSS pre-processors and/or styled components.

  • Comfort in advocating DevOps concepts and have experience with tools and technologies that make them possible.
  • Knowledge of OWASP secure coding practices, and browser security
  • An eye for detail and passion to make what we create shine. Our products have got to be functionally correct, and they’ve also got to look good.
  • Excellent communication and will enjoy working in teams. We’re a highly collaborative bunch and recognise that teams, not individuals, ship products. We’re all responsible for the quality of the code and the success of the project.
  • The ability to manage up and initiate difficult conversations with the project leadership team.
  • A passion for helping to create and maintain an environment where people can do great work and learn new skills.
