Senior Javascript Developer

We’re paving the way forward as an industry-leading agency with PWA and Magento PWA studio. So we’re looking for a Senior Javascript Developer to join us.

Are you the type of Javascript developer who loves to be working with the latest technology? Having the opportunity to push the boundaries in the industry and being recognised for the impact your work creates?

We’re paving the way forward as an industry-leading agency in PWA eCommerce. To support this we’re looking for a Senior Javascript Developer to join us on this journey.

You will have the opportunity to play a leading role in the adoption and architecture of these new technologies, across a range of projects, each of them challenging you with their unique technical requirements.

We hire people with a passion to strive for that next level of perfection on everything they do. Who want to be at the forefront of web technologies and using those technologies to deliver results that turn heads.

We are a remote friendly company. This position is open for both remote or to work in our Nottingham office.

Who we are

 

JH is a digital agency that specialises in creating bespoke Magento eCommerce websites, that transform business results for our clients. We design and build world-class, award-winning websites that achieve more.

Our company philosophy has always been to enjoy what we do,  be brilliant in our execution (and not settle for the ‘good’ or ‘great’ everybody else is happy with), whilst always delivering big results for our clients. This forms the heart of everything we do and drives each member of our team every day.

We build long-standing successful relationships with clients, we work with them on strategy, and align every aspect of each project with overarching business goals. Because of this approach, we’ve grown year on year since we started out in 2009. We’re always on the lookout for more exceptional people, to come and join the team.

We’re also behind open source projects like Browsersync and PHP School, and organise Nottingham’s monthly design meetup: DXN.
