Are you our new Front End Developer?

Day-in-a-Life of a JavaScript Developer

One of the things most exciting about working at BlueChilli is that no two days are the same. You’ll get to switch gears between writing JavaScript tools and libraries one day, to being involved in meetings to outline a new project the next.

You’ll have your technical skills tested and improved regularly, you’ll find yourself in meetings with passionate founders with great ideas looking to you to bring them to life, and you’ll be working within a team who are just as passionate as you are.

You’ll be responsive for new projects end-to-end, you’ll get to tinker with some of the BlueChilli frameworks and help with tooling, and you’ll also get your hands dirty on some existing projects and learn how we do it at BlueChilli.

Your typical tasks will be:

  • Work with your team, including the startup founder, the design and development team and the business advisor, to confirm and validate a minimal viable product
  • Advise the team on the best technology choices for the particular application
  • Use your creativity and passion to come up with solutions for founders that elegantly and efficiently meet their customer’s needs
  • Build mobile app MVPs that can grow into scalable products with their businesses
  • Contribute to a lean agile team and process

You have….

  • Experience in production React application development
  • Foundational understanding of functional programming
  • Extensive front-end development experience, including dealing with browser quirks

You are…

  • A team-player. Teamwork is everything when it comes to building a business
  • Someone who is excited by working in an ever-changing environment
  • A creative problem-solver who enjoys making big things with small resources
  • Organised and passionate about getting stuff done.
