We are looking for a motivated and proactive Senior UI Developer to help us develop our front-end web services. These services are used by our riders, retailers and internal Specialized teammates. Our websites are written in a variety of technology stacks and languages, and for this role the focus is on Angular single page web applications. You may also be required to step into other stacks such as React, Angular JS or other legacy web development environments. Development duties on web applications will include design and development of both JavaScript, HTML and CSS Angular components.

You will be expected to work closely with the backend teams to assist in identifying and defining the required REST endpoints to best serve the web applications. You will often work without a dedicated designer, and it is important that you can work independently and apply best practice and consistent designs to the screens you develop. You will need to lead by example and demonstrate to others how our best practices and target architecture can be adopted and used. It is important to stay up to date on best practices, and to actively communicate these through to the team

Experience in a small, fast paced environment is crucial – we are light on our feet!

  • Develop and maintain existing solutions on our legacy server/cloud stacks (Angular JS, React).
  • Significantly contribute to our target architecture discussions and continue to drive forward the patterns and best practices of the development team.
  • Collaborate with platform leads, architects and DevOps staff to ensure that what is developed meets an agreed design, and it can be built, tested and deployed in a reliable, scalable, secure, responsive and maintainable manner.
  • Work with other Specialized development teams, including platform and mobile, to design and develop complimentary solutions
  • Work with other Specialized product and project managers, and business stakeholders to document requirements and communicate deliverables.
  • Participate in the on-call roster as needed
  • Follow the Agile development processes and methodology as set by the Software Development Manager

  • Experience with developing and documenting UI/UX style guides

  • Experience using Maven and Git
  • Strong design and development skills
  • Experience working in an agile environment (inc Scrum and/or Kanban)
  • Experience with some of our other stacks; Go, php, node, python, Ruby, mobile, web and more….

Even better if you have…
