A great opportunity to use your experience and talent as a Frontend Developer and an advocate of fabulous consumer interfaces to become part of a ground-breaking team that is looking to shake up how consumer lifestyle technology products are sold.
Launching in 2021 Situ Live has ambitions to become a first-choice destination to discover and choose the latest and best innovation products designed to make life better.
We will be showcasing the ultra-cool new brands shoppers don't know alongside the big brands they do. A blend of online and physical retailing: Our live experiential showroom in Westfield London brings some of the magic of theatre to how we shop for lifestyle technology products.
Our presenters bring products to life with live storytelling and live streamed content whilst our knowledgeable advisors help shoppers understand the products better and guide them to the best places to buy online.
Our digital platform manages and presents product information across our catalogue of entertainment, home, work, communications, wellness, sport, travel and more. Our easy-to-use digital shopping content and tools take the stress out of choosing what’s right for shoppers. We then connect shoppers to their favourite places they can buy the product.
We are looking for an experienced Frontend Developer who will be responsible for creating best in class interfaces and outstanding interactive consumer apps. You are an expert in interface development using the latest technologies and can demonstrate a strong portfolio of mobile first webapps. You are a team player, can communicate ideas articulately and you add considerable value to the UI/UX design process to bring designs alive.
As a new and agile team, we have the benefit of always using the latest frontend technologies and frameworks. Our tech stack is predominantly Azure based, we are using the latest version of Angular/Angular Universal and follow a MACH (microservices, API-first, cloud-native, headless) approach to our product development.
You will be comfortable working in a fluid manner using Agile methodologies and following test driven development principles (TDD). Our team all work from home with a requirement to commute to occasional events with the technology, product or full team – these will involve travelling to Manchester, London and Reading.
As a founding member of the team, you will have opportunities to shape how our systems, processes and roles are developed and deliver an outstanding new service to consumers and our brand partners.
You will need to be the type of individual who pushes boundaries, always looking to improve your knowledge, and whose heart skips a beat when you discover a new method, or you solve that tricky problem. As we develop our services there will be opportunities to develop immersive experiences using experiential and cognitive technologies – including voice, mixed reality, livestreaming and geospatial services.
You will be obsessed with pristine code, elegant UI design and delivering UX that facilitates growth and satisfaction.
