To perform well in the role you will need to have the following:

  • Command-line comfortable
  • Ambition to keep improving systems and processes, irrespective of stakeholder opinion

In three short years, we have become Europe's largest music festival platform.

    YOUR ROLE

    We are looking for an experienced team leader who specialises in ReactJS.

    We've had a big funding round in the middle of last year and our technical team is growing rapidly (from 4 to 15 people so far). We need to bring up-to-date our technology to meet the business's ambitions for the next few years. This includes implementing a React SPA as our customer facing website (a green-field project).

    We are a team of 15 looking to grow to over 20 immediately. To do this we need a dedicated Frontend Team Lead to get work done on time, train new staff and integrate new team members into this rapidly growing team while working with the other senior developers to ensure that standards stay high and keep getting higher.

    THE STACK

    http://stackshare.io/festicket/festicket

    METHODOLOGY

    We work incrementally but do occasionally take on bigger projects to update our stack and offering. Our current methodology is agile kanban.

    Requirements

    YOUR ATTITUDE

    You’re someone who’s smart, organised, motivated and gets things done. You want to work in a startup environment, because you like the idea of doing a bit of everything and taking ownership of what you work on. You have ideas about everything, and you’re not afraid to argue your point (while respecting everyone else’s of course). You’re constantly thinking “how can we do this better?”.

    You understand the hard work required to update and stabilise a large technical product and you are prepared to put this work into the project.

    YOUR SKILL SET

    To be considered for the role you must meet most of the following criteria:

  • 5+ years experience with JavaScript (and ideally 8 years of development experience) and 2+ years with ReactJS
  • At least 2-3 years of developer management experience. Where those developers used React with at least 2 developers having reported to you, ideally you'd have managed a larger team though or multiple JS focused teams.
  • Still hands-on with code every day.
  • Familiar with Sass (would consider LESS or Stylus)
  • More than comfortable with modern web development standards including HTML, CSS, Javascript and responsive design
  • Worked on greenfield and/or large scale React applications before
  • Fluent with the command line, you use git
  • Have a computing or software engineering degree. In the absence of one we expect you to show that you've taken steps to fill this gap in your training/knowledge.
  • E-commerce experience is a big plus but not a requirement
  • Benefits
