The Role

This isn’t a role where you’ll be spending all your time fixing someone else’s code!
You’ll be part of a friendly and supportive development team, but we’ll be looking to you to be our go-to person for all things front end related. Both as a team, and as a company we’re very open to new ideas and technologies and want to provide you with what you need to give our customers the experience they deserve, and expect.
