Head Office, Leamington Spa
Full Stack Web Developer (HTML5, Node.js)

Full Stack Web Developer (HTML5, Node.js)

Leamington Spa, Warwickshire

Salary - Competitive depending on experience

About the job

We are looking for an aspiring full stack web developer to join our agile team and help us craft a fantastic customer experience as we rebuild our high-traffic desktop and mobile websites.

The work is both technical and creative in nature, requiring a blend of backend and frontend skills. As we transition from the .NET stack to a “twelve-factor” Linux cloud environment, you can expect to encounter a mix of technologies from both platforms, including HTML5, CSS (LESS/SCSS), JavaScript (Angular, Knockout), Node.js, Redis, ASP.NET, C#, Entity Framework and SQL Server. You will need to be comfortable getting involved with both stacks, dealing with existing .NET apps alongside the shiny new ones.

Embracing a DevOps philosophy, we also use tools such as Git, Jenkins, Docker and New Relic, and we're particularly excited by CoreOS and Deis right now. Open-minded and forward-looking, we are always evaluating the best tool or technology for the job, so don't expect us to stand still for too long.

Being a multi-channel retailer, our projects range across areas such as point of sale, warehousing operations, CRM, marketing and e-commerce. Whilst you will specialise in one area you will no doubt contribute to others over time. Because we trade around the clock, we will also need you to provide ad-hoc out of hours support occasionally.

Working at Bravissimo is fun and challenging, offering the opportunity to develop your career in an organisation that puts customers at the heart of what we do and enables you to contribute to the positive impact we have on them.

About you

You'll be a competent and self-motivated coder, able to prove your skills and provide examples of commercial websites or applications (especially on mobile) you've contributed to – bonus points for retail experience.

We don't expect you to know all the technologies we use. What really matters is your ability to understand concepts quickly, work with fresh ideas in an agile environment and contribute as appropriate. We're looking for someone hungry to learn with us and also keen to share your findings internally and with the wider development community.

You will have a logical mind and good attention to detail, able to craft a polished product from design concepts provided. Whilst you won't necessarily be a designer, it would be great if you had a creative spark.

As a good communicator, you'll be keen to get involved in discussions and arguments and express your own views. Whenever you see room for improvement you won't be afraid to speak up, and you'll readily ask questions, hit Google/StackOverflow or use our Pluralsight subscription if you're not sure about something.

You will have your ear to the ground of the development community, keeping abreast of what's going on with a view to identifying appropriate improvements for our business.

About the job

We are looking for a SQL developer who's about more than just databases to join our agile team.

The work is database focussed, combining SQL development and ad-hoc querying with database maintenance and performance optimisation. However we'd also like you to turn your hand to web application development, where we currently use a variety of technologies including ASP.NET , Entity Framework, RESTful services, JavaScript (Angular), CSS(LESS) and HTML. Being multi-channel retailer our projects range across areas such as point of sale, warehousing operations, CRM, marketing, e-commerce and reporting. Because we trade around the clock, we will also need you to provide ad-hoc out of hours support on occasion.

Working at Bravissimo is fun and challenging, offering the opportunity to develop your career in an organisation that puts customers at the heart of what it does.

About you

You're expected to be a confident and self-motivated developer, equally effective when working as part of a team or on solo projects. You'll be logical and organised with good attention to detail, and you'll be comfortable talking to people across the business when you have questions about their requirements, explaining what you need in non-technical terms.

You'll have several years' experience of SQL Server up to and including 2008 and some familiarity with 2012 and 2014. You should have strong knowledge of TSQL, and be able to write and debug scripts to produce efficient code. Ideally you'll have experience of Entity Framework working from a code first and a database first perspective too. Experience of web application development through the whole stack would be advantageous, and familiarity with the Angular framework would be a bonus.

You'll readily ask questions, hit Google/StackOverflow or use our Pluralsight subscription if you're not sure about something. We don't limit ourselves to specific technologies and aim to choose the best tool for the job, so you'll have your ear to the ground of the development community, keeping abreast of what's going on with a view to identifying appropriate improvements for our business.
