Senior Front-End Developer in LDN

About Us

At Nice and Serious we make nice things about serious issues, to make the world a little bit nicer.

We’re on the hunt for a new Senior Front End Developer to join our growing team. Someone who’s serious about front-end technologies but also has a keen eye for nice design and really cares about how the things they make end up looking on screen. It will require strong leadership, communication and organisational skills. In short, you’ll be responsible for keeping a happy, productive and creative digital team that produces award-winning work. 

Over the last 10 years we’ve been through an evolution; from a straight-up ethically-driven production company, through to a creative studio, and now to an integrated creative agency. Our digital team builds campaign sites for charities, produces top-notch creative content for media outlets, develops ethical e-commerce stores and sometimes gets stuck into some pretty serious (and not-so-serious) data visualisation.

We like to challenge ourselves, so we’re looking for someone who’s really open to testing out new technologies when the opportunity presents itself.

The stuff we’re expecting

  • You can write semantic, accessible HTML and modular, scalable CSS
  • You feel right at home with JavaScript and have worked with libraries such as React or Vue
  • You’ve got experience building performant, responsive layouts with silky smooth user interactions
  • You can assess the technical feasibility of UI/UX designs and are comfortable quoting development time for prospective work
  • You’ve got experience writing CMS templates for tools such as Craft and Wordpress
  • You can use Git to manage code and have worked with tools such as Webpack and Babel
  • You’re quick to adapt to new languages, technologies and relish the chance for solving new problems
  • You know your way around Sketch, Illustrator and Photoshop
  • You’re comfortable with SVGs and have maybe tinkered with chart libraries such as D3
  • Server-side stuff doesn’t scare you and you even know some basic PHP or Node
