Lead Front-End Developer - Digital Transformation Agency - Permanent - London - £70k

HTML5 / CSS3 / JavaScript / ES6 / OO / TDD / Node.js / Agile / Git

My client is easily one of the most exciting technology focused agencies in London today with a portfolio to prove it. They produce amazing work and take a lot of pride in doing so. They work with their clients on full end to end delivery in the digital space.

The kind of projects you could expect to be working on would range from e-commerce and service design with some of the biggest brands across multiple industries. All of these are completed by having technology at the forefront. No other agencies out there are doing the type of work they are.

Your potential colleagues are super -talented, passionate, fun and friendly. It's a vibrant fast paced and social environment. Great airy open plan offices (think outside inside) and don't forget about the office dog! Other perks are Friday breakfasts and they have a bar in the office!

As the Lead Front-End Developer you will need to be an expert in this landscape. Taking charge of the Front-End Development Team, you will need to be able to lead by example and be hands on in your approach. You will also need to be willing to learn other technologies if required.

Ideally you will thrive and enjoy a vibrant fast paced environment that comes hand in hand with an Agency. You will be working very closely with other members of your immediate team and the other teams in the agency such as the Front-End team.

You will be considered a technical expert and will be expected to take the lead on multiple projects. Therefore communication is key, both with your immediate team but also the wider business and clients.
There may also be travel involved for the role in and out of the UK depending on client location.
