Lead Front End Developer - establish the tech

Posted 1 February by Talent Point Ltd Ended
We are currently looking to hire a Lead Front End to join a company that is currently going through a large period of change, they have a product that they want to translate into the complete entertainment platform. They are a long standing business and have recently hired a new highly successful and experience C Level executive to lead them through this period of technology change, they have a two year plan in place all revolving around technology.

The Technical Lead will be responsible for working closely with the new CTO to put in place new processes and play a major part in technology selection. They are currently looking to move away from their Angular legacy platform and migrate it to a modern framework that the Lead Developer will choose (main options considered are Angular 5 and React). There are also plans to move to micro services architecture and part of that will be built with Node, which you will lead the implementation off.

The successful Lead Front End Front will either be working already as a technical lead or a Senior Front End Engineer who has experience of working on architecture and contributing ideas towards technology selection. We expect you to have experience of working with an modern framework such as Angular or React in producing clean, reusable, testable code. You will then be able to run the necessary tests on your own code before deploying it into the environment. The Technical Lead will be familiar performing code reviews and mentoring, either formally or informally more Junior members of the team. Ideally you will be working in mobile first environment, however if not you should be able to explain how you would approach working in this way.

This is an amazing opportunity for a Front End Developer to have full influence on the technical stack while learning from an experienced CTO. As the role evolves and you put processes in place if you desire there is an opportunity to grow a team around you and act as a team lead taking on more pastoral duties or remaining hands on technical.
