As well as having deep knowledge in areas related to front end development, you should also be knowledgeable in all things related to creating a quality user centred product. You will be joining a great team who are centred around a common goal - to make sharing research data easy, enjoyable and empowering.
You will be building a user-centred website which adheres to standards and is progressively enhanced to offer a rich experience for capable browsers, whilst offering a basic experience for all browsers.

They are looking for a passionate developer who has a history of self-direction on complex projects which are exploratory in nature and not fixed, responding to user feedback and working in a fast paced environment.
They are committed to building cohesive teams where communication, support and innovation thrives. Instead of taking a top-down approach to new ideas, all members of the team are empowered to contribute. Great ideas can come from anywhere.
They adopt an Agile process, with daily stand-ups, sprints, demos, retrospectives and other Agile practices.
You'll need great team skills, including the confidence to put your idea across, even if the idea is initially unpopular, and the humility to admit when you are wrong.
Like everyone else on the team, you are versatile with a broad perspective, eager to learn new things and use the best tools for the job. You're not afraid to venture into uncharted territory and come away with mastery of it.
Quality is important to you. You practice unit testing, integration testing, code reviews and constant communication to ensure the best outcome.
You have experience writing websites that are progressively enhanced. This applies to:
CSS - For example using rounded corners where supported
You have experience using CSS preprocessors such as SASS, as well as knowledge of methodologies for structuring CSS for extensibility, readability and maintainability. You write CSS that works across a range of devices and browsers.
You have years of experience writing responsive websites which can adapt to any range of inputs and outputs. You are comfortable working alongside designers to design responsive patterns in browser and discover optimal solutions.
You put user experience first when it comes to developing any user facing product. Experience with user experience techniques such as user testing is highly desirable.
You care about performance of front end applications, ensuring that the website feels responsive and content delivery is optimised for perceived speed, using techniques such as lazy loading/deferred content to further enhance the experience.
You have a history of building and taking products to market in fast-paced environments.
You are committed to the bigger picture of large software ecosystems; you are constantly thinking about the future when building new applications and features.
You are not afraid to challenge the status quo when necessary, and at the same time respect the opinions presented by your team.
