_We welcome contract to permanent applications too_
We are Appraisd, and we’ve built a fantastic tool used by 100’s of organisations to improve the way employees are managed, developed and engaged.
Although we’re a very small team, you could call us an established start up. We’re funded entirely by our customers. There’s no hype, we simply sell a great product.
*What are we looking for?*
We’re looking for an *experienced* front-end developer to work directly with me (the founder) and our CTO and UI designer to make a step-change to Appraisd's front end architecture and design. We have heaps of interesting challenges to solve, many of which you'll have never come across before so you'll need to be creative!
This is an opportunity to advise us on and build using the very latest in front-end patterns and libraries. We want you to bring your experience and knowledge gained from other projects you've worked on to the table, although you'll need to learn new tricks too. There will be plenty of discussion and debate, so if you’re looking to make an impact, grow and learn, this is the place to be. I personally see this as a vital role and am excited about the prospect of someone filling the seat.
