📆 Deadline 3rd July

We've posted this job opportunity under three other job titles (Backend Dev, Frontend Dev and JavaScript Dev). People have different perceptions of job titles, but to us they're all a bit fluffy. We want to work with the people that fit our culture best, regardless of what your title is.

We’re looking for a creative JavaScript developer to join our mission to change people’s lives with tech. Our team knows their stuff and we’re proud of the impact our technology has. If you're a self-starter with the ability to creatively solve technical problems, we'd love to hear from you.

We’re looking for a frontend JavaScript developer skilled in React or Node.js. Two to three years of experience as a JavaScript developer would tick all the boxes, but who you are is much more important. Any experience working with TypeScript or AWS would be great, but we will train you up if not.

If you're thinking you're not a match at this point, we'd urge you to read on and reconsider. You might just be the perfect person.

We’re looking for someone deeply curious about the development world, a proactive problem solver with a positive and supportive vibe. As a small team, we work very closely, so communicating well should be important to you. You might sometimes head up certain features or entire projects, so the ability to manage your own workload is important.

There are a few tasks that you might be expected to be involved in:

  • Implement solutions to complex problems with our development team
  • Work with our designers to add your creative verve to build design systems
  • Create frontend systems with React and React Native (with GraphQL)
  • Build APIs using GraphQL and Lambda (usually with MongoDB)
  • Articulate decisions with the team and clients
  • Use Git to version control all your code
  • Work in sprints on multiple projects

All of our products use TypeScript and live on AWS. We use React.js on the frontend, either with MaterialUI or by building a completely custom interface. We use Node.js on the backend, running through AppSync and Lambda functions with MongoDB usually. Accessibility and knowledge of web standards is important to how we work.

We’re offering you an opportunity to grow as a person at a small company where everyone has a part to play. Personal development and wellbeing is an important part of our culture. We try to fit side hustles and R&D projects whenever possible to keep the creative juices flowing. We're offering:

  • Flexible hours
  • 25 days leave plus birthday and bank holidays off
  • Closed to clients over Christmas
  • Private healthcare for your family
  • Mobile phone on your first anniversary
  • Regular team meetups
  • Pension
  • Care packages and subscriptions (food, coffee, Spotify, etc)
  • Cycle to work scheme
  • New equipment and a home-office budget
  • Work that’s good for the soul

If this role sounds perfect for you, we want to hear from you. Send over a short introduction about who you are and your experience, with anything you think is relevant to the application. Feel free to send links to things you’ve built, Github profiles, introduction videos, a portfolio site, or a CV.

You can email us at devjobs@biglemon.co.uk before __10pm on the 12th of June. Good luck!

Big Lemon's ambition is to work together to promote a more inclusive environment, a place where we can all be ourselves, that celebrates diversity, so that different cultures can thrive, remove barriers to access and progression, in the life and work of the company, reinforcing our ethos in respect of encouraging fairness and equality of treatment for all.

Agencies: sigh It’s not you, it’s us. We’ve told you for years that we’re not interested, and now we have exclusivity with another agency. Sorry. If you still must contact us, send something to gus@biglemon.co.uk.
