Role Description

A front-end developer role is available in our Portfolio (robo-) Advice team, which produces web apps for financial advisers in banks and individuals at home.

 

Most of the work is focused on producing demos for prospect and responding to feedback, which updates our development priorities. Much of the feedback relates to what the user can see, so the Front-End development follows an Agile method.

  • Helping to solve any defects that may arise;
  • Testing that builds meets browser and platform standards; and
  • Checking the quality of final output is to the standard expected by clients.

  • Excellent knowledge of strict HTML and CSS;
  • Excellent knowledge of JavaScript;
  • Experience with the React framework preferred;
  • Experience with creating W3C compliant cross browser compatible websites;
  • A good working knowledge of modern technologies such as HTML5 and CSS3;
