An experienced, driven JavaScript developer with extensive experience in web trading is required for my high-profile client's development team. Based in London's financial sector, my client is an internationally renowned name in the financial industry, and this position presents an exciting opportunity for you to join their ranks on a permanent basis.

On top of front-end work, the opportunity may arise for you to extend your JavaScript development skills on Node backend services and middleware libraries.

You’ll be working alongside a team located across several countries, with the requirement to describe complex problems concisely in written and spoken English. Therefore, fluency and strong communication skills will be essential for the candidate.

The client may require your occasional commute to the London office, so a candidate that is willing and available for this option is preferred.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Maintenance and support of existing front-end web trading applications
  • Development of new trading screens
  • Development of Node JavaScript services and maintenance of platform libraries

Essential Experience:

  • Demonstrable working knowledge of modern JavaScript development practices
  • Understanding of basic data structures and design patterns.
  • Expertise in at least one modern JavaScript UI framework, preferably React + Redux or Vue.js
  • Experience with HTML5, CSS and Web design.
  • Experience with build and package management tools such as NPM, Gulp, WebPack.

Desirable Skills:
