Lead Angular 2 Developer

What makes Holocentric exciting? 

Working in the R&D team at Holocentric isn't a regular software job. It's kind of like comparing fast food preparation with being a chef.

We have people on the team who have not only designed and built scripting engines, parsers, diagramming frameworks with customisable notations, task frameworks and repositories, we also have members that have designed cockpits for the latest blockbuster movies! Needless to say, we're a diverse bunch who love doing interesting things and punch well above our weight.

Building a product isn't just about the technology. It's about the impact on other people's lives. What we create makes a big difference to our customers, the way they work and people they interact with, be it keeping aircraft safe and in the sky, trains running, water flowing, food being prepared in accordance with the strict regulations, or even helping to keep our country safe, our software is part of this.

What we're missing now is you. If you're a Front End developer, who has good experience in Angular 2, or else really wants to get into this technology with extensive relevant front end experience (eg. React), this job could be for you.

This isn't an ordinary business website you'll be working on here. You'll be working on R&D that leads to spectacular products being built. So what are you waiting for? Choose ordinary or do something artfully spectacular? We're waiting to hear from you!

WHAT’S THE ROLE?

We’re looking for an exceptional, motivated developer to lead our Angular 2 Front End development. In fact, we’re not just interested in you knowing it, you must be passionate about being the best at what you do and have a flair for making applications simply awesome – something to behold even!

This role involves the design and build of next-generation UI frameworks using Angular 2 and related Microsoft technologies, including .NET and Azure. The breakdown of work is likely to be about 60% coding, with the remainder split between working with UI/UX designers, mentoring other colleagues and management activities, such as estimation, specification and task tracking.

If you are one of those naturally curious individuals who improves things, works on side projects and is keen to learn new skills that are not necessarily part of your normal day job, then this role may be just for you. You enjoy sharing knowledge with team members, ask for help when needed, and at the end of the day have a passion for writing great code in a team environment.

You will be expected to organise work, participate and run design/review sessions, mentor others in your areas of expertise and report regularly on progress. With your help, our business will continue to thrive so we can deliver even more amazing results to our customers.

In addition to writing code and testing it works, we developers provide a level of product support and maintenance, help with technical issues and assist with troubleshooting. In essence, as well as making cool apps and technology, we continue to be responsible for what we’ve written and make sure it continues to operate.

PERKS OF THE JOB

Some of the perks for working in an expanding, dynamic company include: great culture, open offices, highly collaborative workplace, offsite company kick-off and planning sessions, weekly drinks and catch up, plus a real ability to help shape our product future. We also have a share option scheme, so you can participate in the success of the business.

You’ll also be working in a development environment with a bunch of people that love playing computer games, reading graphic novels, watching anime, cooking and eating great food, plus more.

We don’t believe in fixing people in rigid positions, but rather seek to match interest and capability. If you like a challenge, want to deliver exceptional results and are looking to reach your potential, we’d like to hear from you!

DO YOU WANT TO BE PART OF SOMETHING BIG?
