Job description

An amazing opportunity for full-stack Javascript developers to build a modern, serverless product from scratch, creating the team working-style and best practice as we go.

Job description

If it involves client and server-side Javascript, you can build it, and if it's some new technology you haven't used before... you'll figure it out.

Selecting and using modern development methods and following agile practices, you will build top-to-bottom functionality with ReactJS and React Native for the web & mobile front-ends, through to AWS Lambda, API Gateway, Step Functions, Kinesis, Aurora, Cognito, Pinpoint, Cloud Directory, Redshift, SQS, Quicksight… and as much of the rest of the AWS FaaS and platform services as make sense to allow you to focus on building applications rather than plumbing.

You will be part of a new, three-developer team, to deliver a modern application suite that enables companies, public sector organisations, schools and the general public to book and manage the transport they need to get their staff, students and holidaymakers to where they need to be…. think Uber™ for coaches!

Working in harmony with a devops lead, you’ll also need to lend a hand defining the Terraform based configurations, and figuring out the best methods and tech to introduce CI/CD efficiencies.

Based amongst some of your user base in our Cox Green, Maidenhead office, you will have ample opportunity for corridor testing of ideas through prototypes, whilst more formal UAT will be structured to ensure you (and we!) have the confidence your product will deliver in live.

Please note that this is not a home or remote worker role, so you must be commutable to Cox Green, however, as with all developer roles, we expect there will be a number days during each week where you simply need to stay home, get your head down and code!

About you

You’re a self-starter: a highly enthusiastic and motivated Javascript-centric developer used to adapting to and learning new technologies, design patterns and architectures as the need arises.

You love building product that people actually use and just as importantly you care passionately about quality: not just in the end product, but also in delivering code that other developers can maintain, using best-practice design principles and coding standards.

You wouldn’t dream about writing code without an accompanying test, and you treasure the DevOps principles of developers and technical operations working in harmony to embed security, scale and resilience into your continuous delivery strategy.

Teamwork means more to you than just sharing the tea-runs and buying the Haribo™  on your birthday. You actively assist and mentor your peers in their own learning, know when to ask for help yourself, and the two highlights of your sprint cycle are the planning and retrospective sessions, where you both give and take across story definition, personal recognition and constructive suggestions for improvements.

Your skills

  • Javascript Expert: you know your promises from your closures and can tell the difference between your observables, prototypes and modules.
  • ReactJS: if you haven’t yet, then you know you want to; and can instead demonstrate your expertise across Angular, Ember, Dojo or Vue.
  • React Native: you may have only dabbled, or you may have apps already on the stores, complete with shelling out to native components and SDKs like Geolocation or NFC. Alternatively, if you’ve got some Android Java, SWIFT or ObjectiveC under your belt, then it all counts.
  • AWS Lambda, API Gateway, Step Functions… or NodeJS: Let’s be realistic… not every developer has worked for forward-thinking companies that know serverless is the future, so if you haven’t yet had a chance to ditch the [virtual] tin, prove to us instead that you are a NodeJS guru and can learn the modern AWS FaaS methodologies as you go.
  • Redux? Webpack? Gulp? Browserify? Flux? Relay? Flow? ImmutableJS?: If you have the skills and can prove the advantage of your preferred libraries to your peers, then consensus will mean go for it (license agreement permitting).
  • HTML/CSS/SASS/LESS/REST/JSON: Duh!
  • TDD/BDD: we shouldn’t even have to mention it. You’ve been on Github. You know that no self respecting NPM ships without its tests. You practice what you preach and provide unto others what which you expect to consume yourself… and it’s not an afterthought.
  • Terraform: if you’ve got it, we’ll take it.
  • Security ingrained: You know your CAPTCHAs from your SQL injection from your brute force attacks, how to specify and develop to mitigate them, and under the covers you know your IAM from your KMS from your Secrets Manager and will layer security throughout your application stack. ...PII - encrypt it!
  • English Communication Skills: you can debate your technical solutions with developers and business people alike. You won’t be expected to write War & Peace, but you will be expected to keep the development wiki comprehensible

Job description

Function: Solutions & Digital

The Team
Global clients and world-class colleagues.

You might think of us as one of the world’s largest accountancy firms. But there’s so much more to what we do. These days, our clients regularly call on us for all kinds of digital mobile solutions. So we’ve hand-picked a team of the market’s best software developers.

As an integral member of our diverse team, you’ll work with expert UX Designers and Business Analysts to shape apps for everything from online banking to predictive analytics.

Thanks to our ambitious growth plans for the team, your future here is something to get excited about.

Our technology

Our core competency is the .NET stack (C#, ASP.NET MVC, WebApi) and cutting edge web client technologies (AngularJS, ReactJS, HTML5). We pride ourselves on delivering highly modular, testable, scalable, SOLID code with continuous integration and deployment to cloud environments. We follow agile methodologies and a Git workflow.

We welcome polyglot developers with experience in other stacks (Ruby, Java, Scala) who are happy to bring their experiences on board. As part of our rigorous recruitment process, we’ll thoroughly test your ability to code with peerless precision, quality and clarity.

The best of both worlds
We might be world leaders, but in many ways the department feels like a start-up, with a twist. There’s the buzz of scrum working, the thrill of shaping compelling experiences, the chance to surprise and stretch yourself in response to a fresh challenge. And then there’s all the resources, technology and high profile projects of a major corporate entity. Crucially, we also offer the benefit of clear career progression. Here, you can move on and up, adding management responsibilities. But if it’s your preference, you can still wear your favourite t-shirt to the office.

Our Deal
At KPMG, your long-term future is every bit as important to us as it is to you. That’s why our aim is to give you experiences that will stay with you for a lifetime. Whether it’s great training and development, mobility opportunities or corporate responsibility volunteering activities – you’ll gain a wealth of experiences on which to build a rewarding career. We’re a firm that encourages you to be yourself, values your contribution, and inspires you to act as a role model, always focused on doing the right thing for each other, our clients and our communities.
We’re at our best when you’re at your best; that’s why we’ve created ‘Our Deal’ and ‘The Academy’. Our Deal is the way we speak about the colleague experience and the expectations we have of our people. We expect the best from our people and in return we provide a stimulating, collaborative environment where each person can reach their extraordinary potential. Through ‘The Academy’, you’ll have access to communities which will support and develop you so that you build your skills and career. From introducing secondment programmes to preferential banking, and student loan payments to your birthday off, we’re making sure that our people have an amazing experience.
Flexible Working
While our client-facing professionals can be required to travel regularly, and at times be based at client sites, our flexible working arrangements can help you to achieve a balanced lifestyle. We offer part time roles with flexible working arrangements which could include, annualised hours, early or late starts to fit around other commitments, shorter working days etc. We are happy to discuss your own requirements and our range of flexible working arrangements in more detail, should that be of interest and, as part of the recruitment process, we can put you in touch with people who work flexibly.
