Developer (Frontend)

at Iron SLS Limited in London

(₤30000 - ₤35000 per year)

About the Role

As an AngularJS developer, you will join one of the agile development teams within Iron
focused on building functionality within our subscription platform or for a specific product.
The primary purpose of the role is to test and write code for incorporation into our platform
and products, but on a day-to-day basis you will also be doing other things – from
performing code review for team-mates through to participating in high-level architectural
design discussions and more.

Our technical strategy for the platform is based on two principles: Continuous Delivery in
terms of process, and containerised micro-services in terms of the technology. We have
made progress in this but there is still a lot of work to do: we have legacy systems that are in
the process of migration, and while we working build systems producing our containers we
are not yet fully automated.

Developers within our teams are responsible for writing high-quality code that fits into this
vision, and as we rely heavily on the AngularJS framework it’s important that new code is
idiomatic and elegant. We also expect developers to contribute to the technical
environment in general: understanding how the applications are deployed into production,
giving advice and feedback on design and architectural choices, helping improve our tooling
and general development environment.

We expect developers to continue to improve their skills with us.

We follow an agile methodology (scrum), and developers work alongside our designers and
product owners in sprints. We don’t separate between back-end and front-end developers
all the time, although some team members have narrower skill-sets than others, and we do
expect that developers continue to improve their repertoire to become more full-stack.

Key Tasks
● Commit to developing features on a sprint-to-sprint basis
● Planning work through JIRA, reporting progress consistently
● Writing tests, and developing new functionality
● Documenting code and decisions, leading or contributing to design decisions
● Ensuring team scrum master is aware of all blocking problems
● Working alongside product owners and others in the business to refine the backlog,
and contribute to product design decisions

Who we’re looking for
We’re looking for a combination of technical skills and fit within the team: creating a great
culture is very important to us at Iron. You may not necessarily have a lot of commercial
experience, but we are looking for smart and tenacious developers who ship software.
You need to be comfortable with our core stack, AngularJS deployed via containers, and
happy to embrace an environment of Continuous Delivery (we use JIRA and GitLab).

We’re looking for developers with a wealth of skills in different areas.

Technical skills
● Strong AngularJS 2years+ experience (version 1.5 used)
● Knowledge of ES6
● Integration with sass & html5
● Responsive Design
● Npm
● Knowledge of JS-based build tools, especially gulp
● EndToEnd testing/ Unit testing (karma/selenium/protractor)

Bonus skills and experience would include:
● Experience with other JS frameworks, eg. Angular2, React, ...
● Experience in a continuous deployment environment, using tools such as Jenkins or
GitLab, docker, kubernetes
● Any experience related to payment services; such as gateways or acquisition
● Backend PHP knowledge

Experience and education
● Degree educated, in a subject relating to software development or with a strong
science or engineering focus
● Demonstrable experience in a relevant role

Personal Attributes
● Effective interpersonal skills in an agile development team environment
● Organised and comfortable multi-tasking
● Strong team player who is always listening
● Enthusiast for the technology stack we run
● Continually looking to learn and develop engineering skills
