We are actively looking for a Front End Developer to join a team working on a web application for one of the largest telecoms companies in the world. You will be part of small self organising and fast-moving development team. We fully employ the use of Agile methodologies within our business to better achieve project objectives. This team is on a DevOps journey, we like to understand and have an interest in the machine that the software sits on. If you are interested in Continuous Delivery and bleeding the edges of your experience then you will fit in well here.

We expect everyone to come to our office occasionally, maybe once or twice a quarter, but apart from that we are happy for you to be based anywhere in the UK. If you are lucky enough to be based in Cornwall, or would like to relocate to this beautiful part of the country, our new offices are set-up for you to work here if you would prefer.

Due to our timescales you must be eligible to work in the UK, or in the UK with a visa which we can takeover if necessary.

We recruit on a rolling basis and fill our vacancies as soon as we find people who fit our culture and meet the skills requirements. This means that whilst we have a closing date on all of our roles, we may offer the role to someone before the end date, so we recommend that you apply as soon as possible.

No recruitment agencies please.
