NEVERBLAND is hiring a

JavaScript Developer at NEVERBLAND

London, United Kingdom

ABOUT YOU

You’re a developer. You’re awesome. You’ve just joined us, and as part of our growing engineering team, your days are filled with writing beautiful code, drinking delicious coffee, and making new gif emojis for Slack.

You're now building interactive products, and websites that people love! You have an eye for the finest details, and you’re just as happy nerding out in a code review as you are writing a fresh and squeaky-clean API.

You’re not fluent in all the fresh-hotness of The Frameworks of Tomorrow's Stack™, but you’re not scared because you have a natural curiosity to try things out – just because.

You're able to make calculated decisions about what tools to use based on conversations with clients and other team members. Working with your colleagues you scope out project estimates, plan sprints, and then put the solution into practice. You enjoy being productive and look forward to joining some of your colleagues at virtual yoga, or sharing something cool you've found with the design and development teams at our monthly catch ups.

You love the idea of developing highly functional (yet very beautiful), data-rich web applications with a hyper-clean and focused UI.

Knowing tech like you do, you're excited by the future of the web, and what lies ahead with advances in technologies like React, GraphQL, and Node, and you cannot wait to tell somebody.
