Frontend Developer

Job details:

This is a fantastic opportunity for a creative and ambitious frontend developer to join a very talented team – building web products for many of the UK’s biggest Universities and Home Builder clients. Our portfolio will give you a flavour of the products that we’re currently producing but we’re really looking for someone to use their skills and experience to help take them to the next level.

You’ll be responsible for working as part of our in-house web team, building our Virtual Tour and Virtual Open Day products and will play a big part in refining existing products and developing new ones. We would also hope that a fresh perspective will help RV fulfil the goal of improving our web offering to ensure our products are market leading and cutting edge. We have clients willing to embrace new concepts and technologies, and we need a developer that can help deliver.

Role responsibilities

Your Role

Your involvement throughout the life-cycle of a Virtual Tour or Virtual Open Day will usually begin once a client has given approval to proceed. You will attend an in-house Creative Meeting with other members of the web team, adding your experience to help sculpt the wireframes/designs. Development will begin once the designs are approved by the client and usually runs in phases. You’ll own the development of the project with support where you need it from the rest of the web team. Once content has been produced by the rest of the team and received from the client, it will be populated into the prototype, then you will carry out tests on the product using a wide variety of devices and browsers. Once complete and delivered to the client you will be involved with an internal evaluation meeting where client feedback will be discussed along with any proposed workflow improvements.
