Senior Frontend Developer

Loveholidays
Loveholidays London, United Kingdom July 10

From how our unique search facilities are represented and accessed, through display of reviews, usability of booking process and supply of post-purchase information, we are constantly striving to improve our customer experience for users of loveholidays.

Critical to this initiative is making device a non-issue:  whether engaging via laptop, tablet or smartphone, each customer should take away an equally positive experience. We strive for a best in class experience across all customer engagement touch points, with a focus on our React/Redux based platform.

We are looking for an experienced Frontend Developer to provide technical thought leadership, bringing new ideas and approaches to the optimisation of content across device. As well as collaborating with our Lead Frontend Developer on architectural design issues, you will work directly with stakeholders and consider customer data in order to create requirements for our new mobile offering.

As part of our overall Front End initiative we are beginning the process of introducing NodeJS into our technology platform as we drive towards a fully Isomorphic site to ensure easy access for search engine bots.

What we need from you
First and foremost, you will be an experienced Frontend Developer possessing strong knowledge of JavaScript and the progressive web design. Development should be something you are truly passionate about, maybe you also have a portfolio of work you are proud to talk about, have built your own website, contribute to open source projects or even attend regular meet-ups.

You'll need to be able to hand code native JavaScript, React/Redux, HTML5 and CSS3.

You will be passionate about Agile principles, and help the team to continuously improve the overall delivery practices used to build high-quality, scalable and maintainable solutions.  You will have a strong focus on iterative delivery and a mind-set to get the job done. These are core values in our Engineering team, and we expect them as fundamental beliefs for all hires. 

Communication skills are vitally important to success in this role. You will need to be comfortable explaining technical concepts to stakeholders and clearly articulating business needs within the Engineering team.

Why work for us?
This role represents a great opportunity for a passionate developer to make their mark within a first class engineering team. We are open to ideas, encourage learning and aim to support the continued growth of your career. 

We have a truly collaborative environment that's not restricted by entrenched systems or processes, and we aim to solve problems in the most efficient manner possible. If you want to work in an open environment unencumbered by bureaucracy where development is a key priority, you will find few better opportunities.

We offer a mature agile (Kanban) environment across our cross functional teams where a delivery focus mindset and speed to market are key driving forces behind our success. We currently release circa 40 times a week and continue to strive for greater levels of automation as we push on towards our ultimate goal of continuous delivery.

Unlike many online businesses, our growth is fuelled by re-investment of our profits. This gives us the budget to invest in the tech that drives our business and means you can be confident of joining a stable employer.
