To Apply: ALL APPLICANTS please email a CV AND covering letter to jobs+frontend@neo4j.com

Location: London, UK

A small, newly-formed team at Neo4j is creating a cloud service. We’re looking to add our first front-end specialist to the team, to focus on the crucial user-visible parts of the service. This is a chance to join a high-performing team early on, and to work with all the latest cloud technologies.

You will be responsible for:
  • Creating a brand-new web application, taking it from an early prototype all the way into production
  • Working closely with with the rest of the technical team to deliver a seamless user experience between the front-end application and the underlying cloud services
  • Implementing graphic design guidelines developed by our design team, and working with to improve and refine them as the application evolves.
We’re looking for people with:
  • Excellent core web technology skills: modern JavaScript, HTML5 and CSS3.
  • Experience with client-side frameworks and libraries – especially React and Redux, but experience with Angular, Ember, Vue.js, Polymer or Aurelia would also be considered.
  • Great communication and collaboration skills.
  • High attention to detail, clean coding and good code design.
And ideally you’ll also have:
  • A passion for great user experience, user-first thinking, and some skill at user experience design
  • Experience working in a distributed team
  • Familiarity with agile methods and a desire to follow the principles of the agile manifesto to build a team iteratively and reflectively.
Relevant additional technical experience:
  • Testing tools (e.g. Mocha, Jasmine, Selenium).
  • Single Page App (SPA) development
  • Responsive Design
  • CSS preprocessing (e.g. SASS)
  • Experience with any build/bundling/transpiling tools (e.g. WebPack, Gulp, Grunt, Babel)
  • Good awareness of common security issues that can affect web applications (e.g. OWASP Top 10), and how they can be mitigated from a front-end perspective.
Our ideal candidate ability to balance quality with pragmatism. While you appreciate the latest and greatest libraries and frameworks in the JavaScript space, you recognise that solving real problems is more important than adopting the shiny new npm package of the week. You’re adaptable and willing to learn new things.
