Front-End Engineer at Parallax

About us

Parallax is a digital consultancy with innovation at its core. We solve complex problems and build leading digital products for local and national SMEs, international clients and blue-chip corporations. 

We transform ideas into opportunities, using cutting-edge user experience design, technical innovation, and our passion for digital excellence. We don’t shy away from projects that seem too out of reach, unachievable or even impossible. We welcome the challenge and deliver success.

We’re always questioning the norm and understand the risks of the latest and greatest and know how to deliver large digital projects at the forefront of technical possibility with a balanced approach to risk mitigation. Our clients trust us to deliver a transformative user experience married with technical excellence across various projects and industry sectors.

Our team features some of the most talented minds in the industry. We work hard to stay on top of the newest innovations and always strive to be the best at what we do.

About the role

Reporting to the Head of Front-End, and working closely with the delivery team, you’ll be responsible for completing projects end-to-end independently, with occasional help from other engineers over a wide array of exciting projects & clients.

We use a wide range of tools & languages in our work, which we’re constantly reviewing, democratically, to ensure that we’re using the right tool for the job, rather than defaulting to the trends.

It’s important we’re writing performant, accessible, cross-platform, responsive front-end code. Testing is a large part of our workflow; our excellent QA engineers search for & ticket bugs and we review each others’ code to support each other. You’ll also have an opportunity to learn about automated testing so that bugs are found really efficiently and we can have a high level of confidence in the quality of the work we’re creating.

We understand the importance of supporting you in your role. We run workshops for collaborative learning, have professional development days scheduled each month and run quarterly hack days for you to learn & hone new skills. You’ll have the opportunity to attend events (or host them if you’d like!) and conferences and have the opportunity to pass your knowledge on to young engineers in our academy too.

About You 

We’re looking for a bright, keen, motivated front-end web engineer with a strong skill level and a desire to learn new and existing web technologies. 

The ideal candidate should be able to write clean, reusable code, and be keen to expand their skill set within a company that has been enjoying rapid growth for the past eight years.
