Front End 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.

Building a product isn't just about the technology and writing software. 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, drinking 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.

We have a great team of people who have done some great software work over the years, including scripting and runtime engines, diagramming frameworks and metadata-based repositories. Needless to say, we're a diverse bunch who love doing interesting things.

What we're missing now is you. If you are keen to become an expert Front End developer using Angular, have experience planning, designing and deploying front end frameworks and want to work in a great team, 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!
