Front End / UI Developer

  • Reference IP28709-JS
  • Salary £30,000 - £45,000
  • Location Cardiff
  • Job type Permanent

Sometimes in life you find a combination that work perfectly together; PB&J, rum and ginger, sausage and mash, and most recently for me skittles in Prosecco. Well this job opportunity is no different. We are currently looking for a Front End Developer with a solid understanding of UI concepts, frameworks and processes to join one of our clients.

At the moment, the applications they have created have all had their UI built from Vaardin (a Java server side program) which sets everything out on the front end. Now they are expanding as an organisation they are looking for someone who can come into the role, look at the UI, improve it, amend it and take ownership of the shiny bits of their product.

You will be involved in all aspects of the product lifecycle bringing your expertise with UI/UX to assist in the design of the applications. Working hand in hand with the development and product teams you will take concepts, jazz them up with all kinds of glitter and font sizes (that’s UI right!?) and then make them as engaging as possible for users. This is definitely a role that you can develop in, as the company grows, you will too, and will be able to take more ownership of the UI within the whole organisation.

In order to be considered for the role we ideally want candidates with the below skillset;
* Ability to develop with front end technologies; JavaScript, HTML, CSS would be the main one’s but experiences with Angular, NodeJS etc would be an added bonus. The majority of this role will be focussed around the front end.
* Strong background focussing on UI/UX and the user journey.
* Experience with multiple UI frameworks and the ability to bring these into the business to shape the products moving forward.
* A good strong backbone – not to be conflicting within the company but if you believe in a particular aspect of the design you’ve got to stand up and be counted – no shrinking violets please.

This is a nice and easy job specification, our client are short on the design element so if you have a strong front end development experience, with a great understanding of UI design principles this could be the job for you.
