Senior Front End Developer


The role

We are looking for a Senior Front End developer to join our team of passionate and skilled developers and QA Engineers. We are a multicultural and diverse team that share the same passion for Front End Development. We believe in friendship and collaboration, for us employees' teamwork and communication skills are the most important requirements. Together in Kindred we managed 9800 production releases in 2020 and our platform has over 50 million transactions a day.  


Developers work together with QA Engineers, their Product Owner and an Agile Lead and are fully responsible for the products they build. Managers are focused on people and leadership. We pay specific attention to people's wellbeing, their mental health and stress management. In the 2020 Great Place to Work survey 100% said this is a great place to work.  


The team is developing micro-frontends to match our user experience model. Our micro-frontends are built using the latest React & JavaScript methodologies. We leave Babel to transpile away the worry of older browser support. 


Performance is a priority so we keep an eye out for unnecessary re-renders, page reflows, and make use of lazy loading and progressive rendering to make sure the whole experience feels fast for the end user. Webpack is used for code splitting and for tree shaking to keep the bundle loading as small and efficient as possible. 


We've got k8s, Docker and Jenkins working to give us sandbox builds for easy feature testing, as well as being able to locally integrate the code to any of the sites it will be deployed on. A fantastic QA team run a host of Cypress auto tests in combination with manual testing, catching issues early and taking the stress out of deploying code to production. 


Sometimes we'll use Redux, Jest/Enzyme, Storybook but our stack isn't written in stone, and we're always re-evaluating the best tools for the job. If one of us suggests a new technology with a good reason to use it, it will be genuinely considered.

    • As an experienced JavaScript developer, you can drive technical solutions from design to production  
    • You are well-versed in modern web technologies and their application
