Our client is changing the way genetics researchers discover and interact with human DNA data. Data access is difficult and time-consuming, a bottleneck for advances in cancer and genetic diseases research.

Our ambition is to empower and enable our users to build a strong community around finding, accessing and sharing genomic data.

We’re looking for passionate engineers with experience building clever web platforms who want to make a real impact on health research.

Skills:

  • At least 4 years proven industry experience.
  • A passion for client-side development, though you can work at any level of the stack - you’re a software engineer not just a front-end developer.
  • Solid experience with Ember.js framework. Experience with other front-end framework (React, Angular, Backbone) is beneficial.
  • Strong JavaScript, HTML5, CSS and Sass understanding.
  • Solid experience building, testing and debugging complex systems in a team environment.
  • Experience with responsive web development and modern browser technologies.

You will:

  • Advance the front-end architecture - our current stack is Ember.js/node.js.
  • Proactively optimize client-side code and model data in the front-end MV* to ensure high performance and robustness.
  • Iterate front-end features quickly based on user feedback.
  • Deliver crisp, clean and clear code - JavaScript, HTML5, CSS and Sass.
  • Test Driven Development (TDD) and Continuous Integration (CI) are important for us. We expect you to have a strong track record with these processes.

What you’ll get:

  • Personal development- Conferences and workshops, huddles and hackathons. We like learning.
  • 25 days holiday- Plus UK public holidays. Use them up.
  • Stretch yourself- Try, fail fast. We have an insatiable appetite for innovation and playful experimentation.
  • Social troop- Sometimes we head to the pub, other times the climbing wall. We are an inclusive tight-knit team.
  • First-rate perk days- Last time we went go-karting other trips have included the zoo and a boat trip.
  • A balance-Wellbeing’s not just for Christmas; we always maintain a healthy balance of work, play and recharge time.
