Part-Time techfolk: Front End Engineer
Headquarters: Bristol, UK
Telicent is hiring a front-end engineer to help implement our groundbreaking open source data transformation platform and web apps.
Our all-new secure platform enables customers to extricate themselves from architectural patterns that stifle change. We do this by unlocking data and creating frictionless integration for next generation applications. This solves significant interoperability issues for organisations with complex data needs, creating freedom for adaptability, innovation, new integrations and progress, underpinned by data governance.
To compliment the platform’s rich functionality, and to accelerate customer engagement and innovation, we’re building all-new platform-native web apps around data management and data visualisation. These highly visual and interactive apps will join a no/low code app ecosystem where third party apps can leverage the platform.
We’re ready for a further front-end colleague to join us. We’re pre-beta and so it’s great timing for you to make a positive impact as we capture and implement ways users can interact with our platform and apps, releasing capabilities in data previously impossible.
You’ll be encouraged to explore responsibilities, to grow, and to maintain a healthy curiosity for front-end tech and for finding better ways of working with software.
- Prototyping, MVP and implementation of all-new web apps that manage, represent and visualise data (you’ll be supported on design and UX aspects) – e.g. utilising D3, Cytoscape, Plotly
- Breaking new ground in the visualisation of graph data, allowing complex graphs to be displayed and manipulated more creatively and intuitively
- Collaborating with back-end colleagues, to implement the platform’s tools, consoles and dashboards
- Establishing best practises for user interaction and feedback, and ensuring consistent implementation across the apps
- Identifying improvements to the front-end architecture to promote and facilitate reuse and consistency
- Automating front-end testing
- Supporting dialogue with customers, working directly with end users
- Helping establish our engineering culture, our methods and tooling
We’re looking for
- Someone ready to contribute to architectural, engineering and layout discussions, implementing effective solutions that empower users to achieve what they need
- Strong front-end coding skills, applied to high quality software products
- Ability to mentor less-experienced colleagues on front-end good practice and self-improvement
- User empathy, and an appreciation of ergonomics for beautiful and useful applications
- Ability to unpack complex requirements, to uphold security of sensitive data and to conform to best practises
- A collaborative, adaptable, user-centred approach
- A strong understanding of software engineering principles and technology agnostic,
- Good familiarity with GraphQL and REST – could implement an API
Current ecosystem – we’ll welcome your influence
