Build your Front End skills with this dynamic start-up

This role would suit either a recent graduate who is keen to get into Front End Development, or a Front End Developer looking to build their career within a dynamic, early stage start-up where everyone helps out with whatever tasks need doing, offering a great opportunity to learn new skills.

Our client is a start-up in the field of high performance networking and consumer electronics. As a Front End Developer, you would be involved in building stylish and intuitive user interfaces for web and mobile applications. Working within a fast-paced and supportive company culture, you would have the opportunity to learn the craft of software engineering from expert colleagues, and to expand your skills beyond web and mobile app development by getting involved in other areas of their software stack.

You will need a good degree in an applicable subject such as Computer Science, but more importantly, you will be able to demonstrate your long-standing passion for coding with multiple non-trivial academic, hobby, or open-source projects. Links to code on GitHub or similar repositories would be ideal. A history of incremental commits will highlight your understanding of change control and software engineering practice, and will be a bonus for you application.

This role requires a solid understanding of web development including strong coding skills with JavaScript and AJAX. Coding skills in C#, Java, Lua, Python or PHP would be desirable but are not essential.

Interested? Send your CV to ECM Selection; whilst we can only put forward the top few candidates, we do read every CV and try to respond to everyone. Or recommend a friend for £250, details at http://ecmselection.co.uk/tell-a-friend.
