Lead Javascript Developer Job at 07973 670527 in Whiteley

Job Description

We’re seeking a fast-learning, self-starting, pun-slinging, Javascript lead front-end developer to join our small (but perfectly formed) development team.

You should have a few years experience developing modern javascript apps; be well-versed with all the usual libraries/frameworks and have a solid grasp of ES6.

You should be fully up to speed with developing slick, high-performance, compatible apps.

We’re a small company, so we’re light on process and naturally agile; however, we absolutely understand and value the importance of having a rock-solid, well-written code-base; so you’ll come pre-installed with lots of good ideas!

You should be able to work independently and as part of the dev team to both maintain existing projects and develop new exciting products and services. You’ll be guiding the implementation, so you should be abreast of new technologies / best practices.

You should have excellent communication skills; don’t worry, there’s no requirement to give a TED talk – but you should be happy to effectively discuss technical concepts with the team.

The User Interface is the frontage to all our products and services; so we’re looking for someone with a keen eye for detail and strong skills designing smart, consistent and intuitive interfaces.

We’re Rock 7, part of a wider group of companies including Wireless Innovation and Ground Control (based in Calilfornia). We design and manufacture satellite tracking products and services. Our satellite IoT, M2M and critical communications technology make the planet a better safer place.

Behind our excellent hardware sits our core management platform, which handles all of our data processing, visualisation, billing and reporting functions.

We also support our sister-company (YB Tracking) to deliver an award-winning online race viewer for tracking events (yachting, car rallies, extreme adventures) across three platforms (web, Android and iOS) – see: https://yb.tl/c6002018
