The Internet of Things (IoT) is changing the world around us.

Connected devices collecting a huge amount of data across all aspects of how we live our lives. Everything from where we visit, where we spend money, how we get to work, how we travel.

This huge amount of data is literally shaping how we interact with our environment.

Cities are using this data to optimise their services and to improve our standards of living. Everything through transport optimisation, weather monitoring, pollution management, service optimisation and more. Smart cities are helping to move towards a sustainable economy and this is driving the growth of services in technology in this space.

We're working with a technology company who are part of this movement.

They create bespoke software and technology services that are allowing the shift towards smart cities. They create products that monitor and interpret real-time data which can then be evaluated to optimise and improve services.

As part of their growth, they are now looking to hire a permanent Front End Developer; someone who can work within a small development team and can lead on the Front End Development projects across web and software products.

This is the first dedicated front-end hire, and you'll be supported by the current back end / full stack team.

What you'll be doing;

  • Working as part of a small development team, responsible for the Front-End development work across web and software products.
  • Working closely with the design team to bring the product designs to life.
  • Managing interaction; looking at UI specifications and defining interaction models.

  • Work with stakeholders to understand the project requirements and then work with them from conception to completion of projects.
  • Work in an agile environment with a collaborative and supportive development team.
  • Gain exposure and learnings into new technologies and development languages.
