We work closely with large teams to design and build web apps and design systems, including:

  • An Angular design system used by a team of 50+ developers, to develop multiple front-end apps, for 6 different brands and millions of end-users.
  • A Vue component library, including assistance with integration. We work closely with the internal development team to support the UIs use in multiple apps and countries.
  • A suite of apps and embedded widgets used by a UK sustainability charity.
  • A suite of apps for a company in the accountancy industry. Over 40,000 users a month depend on this software to achieve their goals.

With a growing demand for our services, we need a fifth person to join our team.

Role

  • You are someone who enjoys creating and improving user interfaces.
  • You have some experience in one or more of these libraries and frameworks: Vue, Angular, or React.
  • You're interested in building interfaces that look great on any screen size.
  • You consider user journeys, states and interactions when building views.
  • You care about the fundamentals of the web — accessibility, usability, performance.
  • You strive to write robust, maintainable, future-friendly code.
  • You have a thirst for knowledge and are constantly looking to level up.

On a daily basis you’ll be:

  • Building and documenting reusable components.
  • Creating interface views and states.
  • Testing and refining interactions.

You’ll also spend some time:

  • Fixing bugs, updating and maintaining codebases.
  • Contributing to proposals for new projects.
  • Scoping features and planning sprints.

Perks

Work remotely

Canterbury (near London) is our hometown, but we’re a distributed team so you can work from anywhere and benefit from flexible hours.

Hangout with the team

We arrange quarterly meet-ups to bring everyone together and hang out for a few days. It's a great chance to connect and collaborate in person.

Relax and unplug

It’s important that we step away from the screen. We work 4-day weeks in the summer, we take a week off at Christmas, and everyone is entitled to a paid sabbatical when they decide that they need to unplug.

Learn and improve

Each member of the team gets a personal development budget to pay for conference trips and books, or improve their workspace with new furniture and tech.
