What will you do?
As a Front-end Engineer you will work on designing, building and enhancing our user facing web applications. We will provide the opportunity to work beyond applications to improve our security, testing, delivery pipelines and provide solutions to common problems.
We will look to you to provide technical leadership, champion agile practices, DevOps approaches and work with other team members to translate high level requirements into epics, stories and tasks.
How we work?
Engineers within Group Digital work in small, cross-functional teams of testers, front-end engineers, back-end engineers, product owners, business analysts and scrum masters. The teams use agile methodologies to iteratively create shippable software, using the workflow which works best for their product.
Our engineers currently work on MacBook Pros or developer-grade Dell laptops running Linux or Windows. We provide appropriate equipment to make sure it's possible to work from any of our offices, or from home when necessary.
What is important to us?
Continuous improvement is the driver behind everything we do - we experiment, we measure and we learn to create better products.
Transparency, honesty and collaboration are crucial, as is the willingness to take ownership of our work.
Communication is also vital to maintaining a healthy atmosphere in our teams. Every member of the team needs to be communicative, supportive and approachable. While we all understand the importance of having quiet, uninterrupted time, your responsibility to your team includes more than just writing code.
Simply put, if you’re someone who cares about the work that you do and the people that you work with, then you’ll fit right in.
