What you’ll be doing
As a Front End Engineer at Crowdsurfer you will specialise in building responsive and elegant web pages that will be used to research and analyse all aspects of this disruptive industry.

We’re looking for someone who is passionate about front end development and loves learning new languages and technologies. We embrace open-source tech and our dashboard only targets evergreen browsers, so you won’t have to worry about polyfilling for IE8.

Requirements
You have experience in developing user-facing web sites using JavaScript, HTML and CSS / SCSS. Additionally, you have used a javascript framework such as AngularJS, React, Backbone, Ember or similar. You have high attention to detail and thoroughly test your code before it goes into production.

How to impress us
Show us your blog / website / app / github profile etc. We’re looking for an enthusiastic front end engineer and would love to see what you’ve built and experimented with.

Responsibilities
As part of a small team you will help shape the future of Crowdsurfer. You’ll take responsibility for building a bulletproof user interface and you’ll help us conduct UX tests, making sure that our product is awesome for our clients.

● Tax efficient share options
● Flexibility in what hours you work
● Work from home 2 days a week, if you want to
● 25 holiday days in addition to public holidays
● A positive culture of working to high standard, constant improvement and enjoying what we do
● Accountability and autonomy and an opportunity to expand your skillset and make your mark – everyone’s view counts in a small company
● We can sponsor a work visa
● We’re a small team so there’s huge potential for fast-paced learning across all areas of the business

Our little perks
We’re a young, high growth company so we have little perks that make us a bit special:
● Our walls are chalkboards. It seemed like a good idea at the time
● Informal dress codeb
● We take little company outings to do cool things – being in Cambridge means regular punting outings!
