Job Description

My Dublin City Centre based client is recruiting for a Frontend UI / UX Developer. This is a permanent role with an excellent client.

Overview

Frontend (UI/UX) developer (Angular, HTML, HTML5, CSS, JQuery, Javascript)

The successful candidate will be a key part in ensuring that the Platform has a world-class user experience.  You will be responsible for enhancing the front-end components of the Platform and working with our team to design the overall look and feel of both the platform, the apps we’re building from the platform and websites and web applications for our clients and our partners.

On a day to day basis this will involve working with our analysts, designers and developers to produce wireframes; converting the wire frames into working prototypes and refining these into front end “templates” that can be applied across the suite of products.  You’ll have the opportunity to be creative and will be asked to continually improve the user experience across the platform.  You will work closely with our existing developers to integrate the user interface into a variety of web applications (and possibly mobile applications).  You’ll use a variety of modern frameworks and languages, including Angular, HTML, HTML5 CSS, Javascript and JQuery.

You will be joining a highly talented and experienced development team, and we will give you lots of opportunities to develop your skills.  We will help you learn and develop, and there is massive scope for you to take on additional responsibility quickly.

We will give you the opportunity to shape the design and development of a game-changing flexible platform which will be used initially to deliver critical business services to a variety of public and private sector organisations; and then offered to consumers and application designers to see what amazing things they can build.
