Front End Developer (Vanilla JS, React, Agency Experience)
Poole, Dorset – (2 days per week in office)
£40000 - £60000.

  • Please note my client cannot offer sponsorship for VISA holders / international applicants.
  • Please note you must have previous experience working in a Digital Agency/Software Dev House/Managing Multiple clients to be considered for this role.

    Your New Company
    I am working to recruit an experienced Front End Developer (with both Vanilla JS and React skills) for a fast-growing digital business in Poole, just 2 minutes from the beach and with excellent transport links to London. This is an opportunity to work with enterprise, A-Grade customers, both local and international.

    The working pattern for this role is 2 days per week in their Poole.

    Your New Role
    The business has done amazingly well since their creation 10 years ago, moving up to 30 headcount and offering the chance to partner long-term with some truly impressive brands that everyone knows. Their new business model is unique and is mainly through word of mouth – most of their work is on a retained basis so Developers are not given unrealistic timelines and quality is valued over everything. It's really a different feel to a traditional agency, and they are proud of this!

    Day to day you'll be transforming brands - building out full corporate websites and intuitive web applications alongside an experienced team of designers, PM's and Back End Devs. They are experimenting with Low Code / No-Code solutions and how they can augment these to improve their clients' convenience. It's a business where quality and experience matter over conversion rates.

    Here it's a flat structure, no bureaucracy or unnecessary hierarchy. The Senior team retain a hands-on element to their role and equally as a Senior you'll be trusted to have an organic conversation with clients about helping to realise their goals. They are reducing their reliance on contractors so as this team grows, more Senior positions and progression will be available

    What you'll need to succeed
    We're looking for an experienced Front End Developer with 5+ years working with Native/Vanilla JavaScript and with React.js (ideally with GraphQL / API's).

    Previous agency experience is required. You will have managed multiple projects concurrently and will be able to task-switch effectively. They move fast and break things, so you should have this Agile mindset.

    Knowledge of complex WordPress builds, PHP/MySQL, Adobe XD, Figma and Bootstrap/jQuery will serve you well.

What you'll get in return
The company are big on investing in training for their Developers and you're encouraged to take days to self-study and work on things you're passionate about. You can also expense for tech conferences that will benefit you. There's Christmas shutdown in additional to 28 days holiday, plus good pension contributions and a great equipment budget so you're ready for home or office. They are big on socials and have quarterly parties but also monthly meals/drinks to celebrate success.
