Frontend Developer/Designer £35k-£50k + stock options
Adzuna is a job search engine that lists every job, everywhere. From launch in the UK in 2011, we now have more than 10 million visitors a month and are busy conquering the world from our office in West London. Right now, we're seeking a Frontend Developer/Designer to join our world class tech team in helping millions of people find better, more fulfilling jobs.
Our engineering and product teams are pivotal to Adzuna's future. It's an exciting time as we scale our existing product offering and also innovate with new tools and user experiences that 'surprise and delight' our audience, like ValueMyCV, which we're really proud of. You'll mostly work on our 16 internationalised Adzuna websites, as well as the 'Find a Job' portal that we run on behalf of the UK Government and also occasional WordPress sites for blogs and partnerships. You'll work closely with our business teams to dream up high impact projects for us to get stuck into. We're a place where your opinion counts and where we make things happen.
Based in our great Fulham office you will work with a smart team of back end, data science, product and frontend specialists. We work on a mix of 'epic' and 'business as usual' requirements, and on projects across our portfolio, so no two days are the same. There is a huge scope of opportunity to play with and deploy new technologies where they fit the business need and can take us to the next level.
You'll be creating engaging user experiences, with structured code that is fast, scalable, reliable and robust. Right now, we're spending lots of time around React and its ability for us to develop great UI's quickly and efficiently, whilst our DevOps team are designing our AWS cloud infrastructure and determining the best deployment practices for scalability and rapid iteration. It's a fun and fast moving environment. Join us!
