Interactive, Huddersfield UK

Overview

We’re looking for a talented front end developer who wants to be an integral part of the team in our Huddersfield Studio.

This is a unique opportunity to be part of a dynamic, talented and fast growing company where your ideas and contributions make a real difference.

You’ll be responsible for building dynamic front end interfaces to our responsive web applications.  Writing modular user interfaces, collaborating with other coders and UI/UX designers, you’ll bring designs to life. You should be comfortable writing modular, reusable and decoupled components which can be reused throughout multiple web applications.

The majority of our work is for integration into clients existing web platforms, so you must be comfortable building interactive designs using platform agnostic code [no frameworks]. A number of internal tools run on Vue.js so experience and understanding of front-end frameworks [Angular/React/Vue] is useful.

Your front end designs will integrate with our custom APIs so previous  experience of Javascript API integration and JS event life cycles would be beneficial but not required.

We build high performance web applications which are required to run across a number of platforms and devices so an understanding of high performing web page principles is vital.

Responsibilities

  • Building, dynamic, responsive and high performance javascript based front end interfaces to our web applications
  • Creating well-documented and reusable SASS/LESS stylesheets
  • Work closely with our UI/UX designers and coders to bring designs to life
  • Be able to learn and integrate new application APIs
  • Willing to explore and suggest new AR/VR interfaces in the evolving field of WebXR

Essentials

  • Ideally 2+ years as a front-end developer although recent graduates with relevant experience will also be considered.
  • Very strong HTML5, CSS, DOM and responsive web design skills
  • Good understanding of Javascript
  • Practical knowledge of CSS preprocessors [SASS/LESS etc].

Desirable but not essential

  • Familiarity with git and understanding of source control management.
  • Experience using RESTful web services and API integration
  • Server-side / back-end skills
  • Understand principles behind highly performing web pages
  • Experience with version/source control software e.g. VSS, SVN, GIT, TFS etc.
  • Terminal/command line knowledge

WHAT WE OFFER

1. You will get to work on some really great projects with some lovely people and have the opportunity to be at the forefront of photorealistic cgi and browser based 3D tech.

2. A lot of organisation. CG is a complex business that requires solid processes and systems to ensure standards are kept high and everyone goes home on time. This is something we are really passionate about so we have people dedicated to maintaining the system and lubricating the wheels of production.

3. Our main office is in a converted Mill complex in Huddersfield near the M62, a short drive from Leeds and Manchester, with a gym, deli and spa on site.

4. We are a relaxed and social bunch and enjoy frequent team trips away to build those important bonds. We also know it's also important to have a blowout every now and then and have developed a speciality for throwing a party.

5. Being brilliant at something can take it out of you, so every year the studio shuts down for 2 weeks over the Christmas period and we all get to come back refreshed.

6. Our aim is to build a team of like minded people who want to work on the best CGI, create bold interior design and styling and make brilliant interactive tools. If this sounds like you then we'd love to hear from you.
