Software Developer in Manchester, ENG

Posted 2019-08-29
Description

Developers beat the city commute! - we’re an independent tech company, based just outside of Greater Manchester, with big plans! We're looking for local, talented senior developers with expertise in Javascript, React and Node.js

About you...

You’ll be a developer with proven experience and specialism with Javascript, React (or similar framework) and Node.js - you’ll be knowledge-hungry from both a technology and E-commerce perspective and you’ll thrive in a can-do environment where anything’s possible!

We want to speak with people who are creative when it comes to solving problems - ‘blue sky thinking’ is our bag and having a can-do attitude on the team is a must!

You’ll have experience working on high-end projects, from discussion and analysis with key clients through to execution and delivery. This process requires an individual with great communication skills, working with a team of like-minded developers as well as external stakeholders wanting to get the job done to an excellent standard..

What you’ll be doing...

The role is varied - from meeting new customers and scoping out their dream app to be launched to millions of users worldwide, developing robust and scalable APIs and architecture, or influencing the direction of the app - no day is ever the same here at Mission Labs.

You’ll be given autonomy and responsibility to design and execute solutions from front end to back end, influencing the direction and architecture of our apps. The end result? A high quality, cutting-edge app, used by millions world-wide, where you can say “Hey, I made that!”

We work using agile methodologies and encourage developers to influence projects - with daily stand-ups, communication, mentoring and teamwork at the heart of our delivery.

The Tech Stack you’ll be working with includes - Javascript / React / React Native / Node.js / AWS Cloud Services

The ideal candidate...

As with any developer position, building a product is a highly collaborative effort, and as such, a strong team player with experience and a commitment to perfection is required.

You’ll need to have:

A BA/BS degree in Computer Science or related technical field or equivalent practical experience
2 years + experience building web apps
Sound knowledge of web libraries and the Node.js framework
Daily usage of React
Knowledge of functional or object-oriented programming
Ability to write well-documented, clean code
Experience creating database schemas that represent and support business processes
Implementing automated testing platforms and unit tests
Confidence when working with third-party dependencies and debugging dependency conflicts
Excellent communication and presentation skills
Even better if you have:

Exposure and knowledge of AWS technologies, such as Lambda, DynamoDB, Cloudformation, API Gateway
Exposure to the Google Cloud Platform
Knowledge of other front-end frameworks such as Angular JS
Experience mentoring and coaching other developers
The passion to use your skills and knowledge outside of the work environment!
In a nutshell, if you’re great, we want you on the team!

Interview process

Typically we run a telephone or video interview to get a feel for your experience and you as an individual! This is then followed by a face to face chat at our head offices with one of our product directors. We like to keep things fairly informal -the first half of the interview is a general chat about your skills and recent projects, the second half is an technical exercise to see what level your coding knowledge is at.
