Your new company
I've been engaged by a specialist Ecommerce business based in Bournemouth to recruit a Front End Developer. You'll get exposure to a range of big name brands as the business is award-winning, and a go-to option for this type of web build.

You'll work remotely for the time being, with a hybrid working plan (2 or 3 days from home) expected for 2021 when lockdown measures are relaxed.

Your new role
The variety in the role is wide and you'll need to balance time across multiple projects concurrently (builds can be a month, or a year!). A Developer that enjoys overly structured work isn't right, but someone who relishes meeting deadlines and ticking off projects, with a pragmatic view to understand that you need to iterate throughout the build process would be perfect. It's very communicative, both in-house and with the user/customer. Someone consultative who can explain technical aspects to a non-technical audience would fit well.

You'll be joining a friendly and talented team that's currently 25, predominantly holding technical roles. The pipeline of work will enable considerable headcount growth in 2020 and there is no progression ceiling here, it's a meritocracy and some of the current Directors joined in relatively Junior roles.

They hold a core belief that work/life balance is of the upmost importance for a happy and efficient team, actively freeing up plenty of time for social connection in the hours of what other companies might call 'overtime'.

What you'll need to succeed
We're looking for a Front End Developer with a passion for Ecommerce. You must be proficient with JavaScript/HTML/CSS and will have a portfolio/URL's to show and discuss with the hiring managers. Beyond this there's modern JS frameworks in play, but you do not need Angular, Knockout, Vue.js etc right away, as the flavour they use changes.

You'll be able to demonstrate a real competency with Front End tech including Git, Grunt, LESS/SASS and may have exposure to PHP/MySQL stack to support this.

You don't need experience using CMS systems from day 1, but will understand this is a part of the role and will show a willingness to learn and push technologies like WordPress and specifically, Magento 2.

What you'll get in return
The role will be worked remotely for now, but the candidates will need to be within a commutable distance to Bournemouth for when they do return and there will be a hybrid working scheme in place with 2/3 days from home. There's private healthcare/dental, a good pension and a budget for certifications/conferences. In addition to this they offer one of the best staff wellness packages which includes provisions for premium food and drink (regularly), social outings, exercise programmes and therapeutic treatments.
