It’s a whisky business choosing your next prison…erm…company, I meant company.
They throw around words like ‘autonomy’, ‘freedom’ and ‘independence’ like confetti, but when the work starts, you quickly realise the words are as hollow as an empty barrel.
So where better to seek honesty than a disruptive alcoholic drinks group that sticks two fingers up to silly policies, internal politics and the corporate hamster wheel?
A company that ONLY wants front-end developers who want to take ownership of a product from beginning to end and are comfortable being at the very centre of things.
You’ll join a 40-person tech team where your work matters, your ideas make a difference, and you’ll see the fruit of your decisions quickly with multiple daily deployments to over 22 million users annually.
This means designing, developing and maintaining everything from the front-end build systems to UIs, talking to stakeholders, seeing things from a business perspective and working with product managers and architects to build out the requirements and technical design.
Coding is a part of the job, sure, but you’ll get involved in day-to-day delivery, some project management, dealing with non-technical problems and being responsible for the quality and success of the live new features.
This role isn’t for you if you just want to code and don’t like wearing so many hats, but if you take ownership and have the skills to do that well, the rewards can be massive, as the company isn’t scared of rapidly progressing salaries above the very top of the market for people like you.
Salary aside, it’s an inclusive company that cares more about the value you bring than clock-watching, and you’ll enjoy true flexibility, including unlimited holidays and full remote working.
You’re a modern front-end developer with some experience working on e-commerce platforms (they use React and Redux but are open to other modern frameworks/libraries as the skills are transferrable).
You don’t fear a little chaos, you want to do the best work of your life, and you’re always looking to innovate and find those marginal gains.
We’re looking for the best developers, but that doesn’t necessarily mean just those with loads of experience or high current salaries; you could have five years of experience but embody the multi-skilled owner profile they like.
