UI Developer – London 

If you’re a proactive learner with a great work ethic and you find a thrill in new challenges, then you’ll fit right in with us!

We are a very dynamic, award-winning global business who is dominating the special interests’ sector with close to 100 leading brands. Sounds very fancy right!? Anyway, we’re doing rather well, and we have big plans to help us do even better… well that’s where you come into our story!

We’re developing a world-class digital platform to serve over 30 million unique users per month and we need great people like you to help us… This digital platform is critical to the future of our great business and we are looking for developers at all levels from Junior, mid and through to senior

The Role; 

You will jump right in at the deep-end and immerse yourself in our technical ecosystem, current, and legacy. Collaboration in this role is vital as you will be working closely with the Technology leadership team with the aim of learning, mentoring and all working towards a common goal of growth. Your key responsibilities will include the translation of the UI/UX design wireframes to actual code that will produce all the visual elements of the new digital platform. Your best friends will be the UI/UX designers, and we would hope you have the ability to bridge that difficult gap between graphical design and the actual technical implementation. Staying on the technical aspect, you will need to ensure the technical feasibility of UI/UX Designs and hopefully be able to suggest some alternatives and of course… assess the risks! You will be developing/testing new user-facing features and supporting existing ones across a wide range of browsers, platforms, and devices including smartphones and tablets. You will build the new face and future proof our business, which is rather exciting! 

This is what we think you’ll need to do it;

We are open-minded; we have found our best people this way. First and foremost, you need to be interested in constantly learning new things and you need to be very comfortable working in an ever-changing environment!  

Here are some of the key things we think will be very valuable so if this relates to you then we’d love for you to send us an application;
