Senior Full Stack Developer

We’re on the hunt for a razor-sharp Senior full stack engineer to join the Big Human team in making world-class web applications. As the right person for the job, you will have at least 4 years relevant industry experience and boast an impressive knowledge of both server-side and client-side JavaScript. Ideally this includes NodeJS/Express, GraphQL, MongoDB, MySQL, AWS, React/React Native and Sass, but we value good coding fundamentals and solid understanding of web technologies above shiny new technology. You should also be comfortable handling the implementation of large-scale, end-to-end projects in a small team. Most importantly, you should enjoy tackling technical challenges across a diverse range of projects and strive to do so while writing clean, maintainable code. In return you’ll be working sociable hours in a light, open plan office alongside a small team of super-smart developers. You may also be challenged to frequent ping pong showdowns.
