Job Description

They are looking for a talented Mid-Senior Front-End Web Developer to join a small team of full stack developers to lead the decoupling and development of front-ends and the ongoing addition of new products and features. You will play a full part in the collaborative creation of rudimentary UI/UX wireframes and bridge the gap between graphical design and technical implementation, taking an active role on both sides and defining how their applications look and feel as well as how they work. Responsibilities will include translation of the UI/UX design wireframes to actual code that will produce visual elements of the application, creating quality, reusable code (in effect building a "mini framework" and paradigms upon which future development will rely on).

As a key player in a small team you will need to be a good all-rounder, highly motivated, have leadership skills, clarity of vision, an ability to influence colleagues you have no formal authority over, and be able to work under pressure to achieve tight deadlines.


  • Decouple existing front-ends from their back-ends
  • Develop new user-facing features
  • Build reusable code and libraries for future use
  • Ensure the technical feasibility of UI/UX designs
  • Optimize application for maximum speed and scalability
  • Ensure that all user input is validated before submitting to back-end
  • Ensure security protocols and PCI compliance are adhered to.
  • Collaborate with other team members and stakeholders.
  • Ad-hoc design work
