Senior Backend Developer / London / Permanent / £50-60k

Node.js / HapiJS / MySQL / API / PHP / OOP / Redis / CMS / Docker

A very exciting digital production studio designs and builds disruptive technology solutions that enables brands, business and entrepreneurs an unfair advantage. Partnering with companies of all sizes and from a variety of sectors, my client helps to innovate them by creating stunning solutions focused on design and UX; from MVP to production, they pride themselves in building powerful, considered user tested products that cut through the internet norm.

I am currently assisting in the hire of a Senior Backend Developer (Node.js), to join its team in Central London to primarily focus on building Rest API's serving up JSON to its web products. The given hire will need to have a love for building a clean separation of data and logic, in order to build logical, secure and scalable API's for the Front End team to work with.

The role itself is to work on one of the clients' longstanding partner projects, the site went live last year and since then the studio has been iterating and improving the functionality and user experience.

The site is divided into a Rest API application (Typescript codebase, Node.js, HapiJS and MySQL), communicating with two 3rd party API's, a single page application built with AngularJS, and a statistics UI and admin panel built in the studio's proprietary CMS. It should be noted that the level of complexity of the site has built up considerably over time so there may be some refactoring required initially.

- Experience developing highly functional and data-rich applications
- Considerable experience and knowledge of software delivery and development, including significant experience with Node.js and Typescript
- Experience using ExpressJS/HapiJS frameworks
- Knowledge of MySQL, Node.js DBALs and Redis
- Strong knowledge of 3rd party API's
- Strong algorithmic skills
- OOP and design patterns
- Working knowledge of AngularJS
- Working knowledge of Docker
- Ability to work efficiently and iterate often to produce high quality code

- Scope to build excellent websites, applications and products
- Amazing set-up, whether it be Mac or PC
- "take when you need" holiday policy
- Remote working whenever wished (although you'll love the offices too!), as long as it does not interfere with role, projects or team collaboration
- Free lunch, monthly haircuts, Learning & Development budget and, lots of fun!
