Responsibilities of the Senior Front End Software Engineer

This is where you come in.

We need a Senior front end engineer, who has good Javascript. Ideally you will have 5 years of experience as a senior, but we will consider people with less, who have the right mindset and technical skills.

We want someone who has drive, who likes mentoring people and enjoys learning new things. Fostering the right culture is important, where creativity and the ability to try new things and update processes based on new developments is normal and expected. A dress down culture, where everyone is relaxed and work is often done remotely. 

Additionally, on top of your excellent Javascript skills, we ideally would like to speak to people who has used bootstrap, node.js and has experience with CSS and HTML5. Expertise with Angular or React is definitely a plus, but won't be essential, as they are still looking to determine which front end interface they want to progress with. 

Additionally, if you have used Jasmine or other automated testing frameworks, you will be someone we want to speak to. Do you have any experience with automated tools such as Grunt or Gulp?

However, we recognise that the perfect candidate does not exist. What is most important is that you have a willingness to succeed, learn and develop. 

Is this job for you?  At Meraki, we love recruitment and love words. Is this you?


Michael Palkowski wants: Javascript, HTML5, CSS, Bootstrap, node.js, Sass/Scss, iOS, Android, Grunt, Gulp
