Bright North is hiring

Front End Engineer

You will be working for Bright North as Front End Engineer

Summary
Bright North set-up just a year ago as a new type of agency. Unlike conventional digital or design and build agencies our work spans the crossover between experience design, data science and web & mobile development. The digital products we build represent a new world of product development; lean, relevant, game changing experiences... driven by data. We work with a whole host of different clients – from biggies like Sky, Samsung and WorldPay through to some incredibly exciting VC-backed start-ups.
We’re now a team of nearly 30 people and are looking for a talented engineer with a flair for front-end development to help us build amazing apps, prototypes and sites for our clients.
We’re looking for someone who’s expert in JavaScript, with lots of experience across frameworks like Angular.js and Ember.js - but who understands back end coding too. You’ll be working closely with our Clojure experts to deliver end-to-end systems, so an appreciation of, the complexities of complete systems is a must.

About Bright North
Bright North specialises in building digital products and interfaces that fuse the principles of User Centred Design with Data Science. We have two complementary propositions:
1. Product development with a difference
• Defining user requirements through a combination of qualitative UX methods and data science to analyse quantitative sources such as sales/transaction data, digital logs and quantitative market research data. • Designing business intelligence and product performance monitoring into each and every product right from the start – providing our clients with an in-built basis for ongoing optimisation.
2. Product optimisation using advanced analytics & bespoke data visualisations
• Combining different datasets to generate deeper understanding of metrics, KPIs and insights held within our client's data. • Advanced analytics and statistical modelling that go beyond conventional business intelligence or market research to truly understand causality and start to predict behaviours. • Visualisation of findings that lead to increased engagement and quicker decisions. • Digital tools that bring data to life for whole organisations, not just the geeks.

Our aspirations
• To continue to be one of London’s fastest growing agencies. • To build on the work we do for clients to design, build and market our own products. • To be a fun, exciting and vibrant place that offers almost unlimited opportunities for those who want to do something awesome.

The Role
You’ll be responsible for:
• Building amazing interactive front-ends and single-page apps in Angular.js, Ember.js and similar environments
• Working in HTML5 and CSS3 to realize the designs produced by our Experience Design team
• Driving forward our research into cutting-edge front end tech - we’re considering ClojureScript
• Creating fast, interactive prototypes
• Developing and testing across multiple browsers, platforms, and devices, including smartphones and tablets

Your Skills
Naturally, as we’re an agile organisation, you’ll be working in cross-functional teams with other engineers, designers, testers and so on. You’ll be expected to be able to manage your own time effectively.
Technically, you’ll need to have experience with:
• JavaScript frameworks like Angular.js or Ember.js
• CSS systems such as LESS and SASS to compile style files
• Git
• Analytics solutions, such as Google Analytics
• Standards-compliant code
• Agile methodology
If you have experience of Clojure, ClojureScript, interactive data visualisation (D3 etc.), or have a background in Java development then that would be really useful too.
You’ll be doing a fantastic job for us when:
• Your creative thinking around how to design & deliver cutting edge web and mobile solutions wins us client work
• You are always being asked to join bid teams and project teams because you bring a blend of skills that people love to work with
• The project you are working on is delighting the client
• The project you are working on is profitable and being delivered on budget and on time
• The Bright North Board of Directors is offering you share options because they cannot imagine the company without you in it
Package

Remuneration: Negotiable & depending on experience (but please remember we’re a start-up and not a humongous multi-national)
