Our client are on the brink of something brilliant.
With the backing of a multinational broadcaster and the ethos of a startup that could be the next Netflix they are likely to achieve it. This is a new venture for a 50 year old company and is treated as a totally seperate entity.
The goal will be to create a video on demand platform that is live and operational in 20 countries by 2020.
- 2+ years of commercial React exposure
- Ability to work within large Agile/SCRUM teams
- Ideally experience within the Video on Demand/Streaming sector
Soft skills include a positive attitude towards the project, the ability to interface with team members and a strong focus on the end goals of the start-up.
As a contract React engineer the first project is to completely overhall the current frontend of the platform. Additional projects will include data streaming feeds, preferences and personalisation screens, as well as the potential for additional functionality.
Should you have backend skills that you wish to utilise in Node JS then the team will welcome this and may even be able to help upskill in this area as the goal is to have a group of full stack engineers as well as frontend/backend specialists.
This will be 6 months rolling for up to 2 years. It will be based in Hammersmith with limited remote working. The rate will be up to £550/£600 for very experienced contractors.
