Being a Front-End Developer at Box UK

As a key member of our Development Team, you will work closely with fellow Developers, UX Designers and our wider team of Product Owners, Project Managers, Quality Assurance specialists and Systems Engineers to focus on creating efficient and beautiful web pages that fulfil and exceed our client’s expectations.

Placing great emphasis on modular development, you are passionate about providing flexible front-end solutions that allow for future updates without descending into hacks and technical debt, and are always thinking about how to best maintain consistent design alongside decoupled code, in order to make the next update simpler to implement.

Experienced at working closely with design teams, you excel at making the best independent choices based on the groundwork that has been provided, and you understand the importance of design decisions in the wider scope of delivering value to the client.

Writing responsive and accessible interfaces and web pages is second nature to you and you relish learning about new technology, both from the perspective of browser advances and improvements, but also from tooling and best practice approaches to the way we code our HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

In this role you will…

  • Contribute to building new functionality and adapting existing software.
  • Collaborate within a skilled team to solve our clients’ problems.
  • Write high quality, well-tested code in line with Box UK’s guidelines.
  • Participate in and undertake code reviews.
  • Attend and contribute to project, sprint and client meetings.
  • Contribute to continuous improvement initiatives within Box UK.
  • Support the business development team in the creation of project tenders.

For this role you will need to have…

  • A minimum of 3 years’ experience as a Front-End Developer.
  • A high level of proficiency in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.
  • A demonstrable understanding of accessibility and semantic markup.
  • Experience of using SASS, ideally utilising BEM.
  • The ability to template in Twig.
  • Experience of WordPress and Drupal theming.

And the following skills are essential…

  • Interpersonal / communication skills: Able to express yourself clearly and be easily understood orally and in writing, able to build effective, collaborative working relationships with colleagues and clients.
  • Self-starter: Motivated and comfortable working autonomously.
  • Problem-solver: Relish in tackling complex issues and offering creative solutions.
  • Results-orientated: Able to focus efforts towards achieving objectives and
    meeting targets.
  • Innovative: Open to different and new ways of doing things, developing and supporting the introduction of new and improved methods, processes, technologies and ways of working.
  • Organised: Able to prioritise workload and tasks effectively.
  • Flexible: Willing and able to respond to changing circumstances and expectations readily.
  • Tenacious: Driven to complete projects to a high standard whilst meeting required deadlines.
  • Resilient: Able to remain focussed, composed and optimistic in difficult situations and bounce back from challenging situations.
  • Attention to detail: Thorough in accomplishing a task through concern for
    all the areas involved, no matter how small.

It would also be great if you have the following (though not essential!)…

  • Experience of TypeScript.
  • Experience of working with design systems.
  • Experience of React, Vue, or Angular.
  • The ability to evaluate and optimise browser performance, especially in regard to Core Web Vitals and other industry metrics.
  • Knowledge of JavaScript and visual regression testing tools.

And in return…

You will enjoy a competitive salary and a comprehensive benefits package.
