There's no escaping the impact that Covid-19 has had on our lives over the past few weeks.

One of these businesses is an ecommerce business based here in Manchester.

They already had ambitious plans for 2020, and due to the spike in workload they are now looking to grow their technology team to help deliver on these projects for this year and beyond.

What's the environment like?

  • You'll be one of 9 specialist Front End engineers.

What will I be doing in the role?

  • You'll be working on the new-build and maintenance of the ecommerce business' front end systems.
  • Work includes a migration of applications and pages written in Angular to React.
  • You'll be involved in greenfield development projects, predominantly using React.
