The Role

We are seeking a senior front-end developer to work with our talented team of researchers and software developers, and play a leading role in building the products on top of our state-of-the-art technology. 

We’re looking for people with expertise in front-end and back-end development. This includes experience with web frameworks such as Vue.js, RESTful APIs.

This is a technically challenging and entrepreneurial role that will give you the opportunity of working in an exciting, high energy, creative and very fast-moving start-up environment – at the same time as working alongside some of the world’s best-known technology companies. We offer exceptionally competitive packages and a fun, yet focussed, working environment. The role of senior front-end developer requires the following skills:

 

Responsibilities

  • Contribute to the design and implementation of the UI/UX of Iprova’s web applications.
  • Contribute to the technical design and implementation of Iprova’s products.

  

Minimum qualifications

  • Undergraduate degree in computer science, mathematics, electrical engineering or equivalent.
  • 4+ years commercial experience in front-end development including at least one web development framework. Preferably experience with the Vue.js framework.
  • Competent in relevant programming languages such as Javascript and HTML/CSS for front-end development. Ideally, knowledge of Python and Django for development of REST APIs in the back-end.
