Description

Hubbub is looking for an enthusiastic, motivated Senior Front End Software Engineer to join our Engineering team and help deliver our market leading fundraising solutions to a rapidly growing number of clients

We are about to embark on fresh builds of several products and we need someone experienced in writing robust, unit-tested JavaScript, using either Vue or React (you tell us which and why) to take the lead on the front end development.

If this sounds like you and you want to be a part of a happy and high performing team, developing products that help raise funds for causes that make the world a better place, please read on...

Your responsibilities will include, but are not limited to:

  • Specialising in the development of our products, working closely with colleagues to determine and build the architecture
  • Ensuring that Hubbub's products are developed in a secure, scalable and maintainable manner
  • Being actively involved in backlog refinement sessions, collaborating with the team to ensure that requirements are understood and stories are broken down effectively
  • Owning your work from design through to our customers’ hands
  • Collaborating with the broader team to get things done when required
  • Striving to keep things simple
  • Ensuring knowledge is shared across the Engineering team
  • Understanding the importance of OKRs, what your team's key results are, and how you can help ensure that they are met

Requirements

This role will suit someone who is able to see the big picture of what the business needs and how their role fits into that. You will have a positive “can do” attitude and be a team player.

You should apply if you feel you fit most of these requirements:

  • You have strong experience of developing robust, tested Javascript in a SPA architecture, using either Vue or React
  • You are willing and able to guide the team and take the lead on the front end development of our products
  • You have a solid understanding of HTML, CSS and JavaScript
  • You have a strong sense of ownership of your work
  • You have strong communication skills with the ability to communicate technical matters to non-technical people
  • You have an interest in the latest technical trends and challenges

Bonus points if:

  • You have a background in scalable, secure SaaS applications
  • You have previous experience with AWS or CircleCI

Benefits

  • 27 days of annual leave + 3 days leave between Christmas and New Year + 5 life days
  • Flexible working hours
  • Fully flexible workplace (work where you choose)

What's it like to be a software engineer at Hubbub?

There is a lot of autonomy in the position and you are free to approach things as you see fit. With that comes the responsibility to canvas the opinion of your teammates and ensure you get buy-in on your approach, along with ensuring it fulfils the company goals. We are a small team, so we can't disappear for months on end to build a feature, however, we can make things better one step at a time. - Robbie Scourou, Lead Software Engineer
Everyone is super approachable and laid back. We are passionate and we get things done. Stress levels can peak sometimes, but that’s ok because
everyone is still smiling and all the clients are extremely happy with us which in my opinion makes it worth it. - Manuel Campana, Senior Front-End Developer
There are lots of interesting problems to solve and we are given the space and time to do so. The company has a good balance of handling new features and dealing with technical debt - the technical debt is not shied away from. - David Reynolds, Senior Software Developer
