  • You can work in a team and can collaborate with members of different disciplines
  • You have experience with JS frameworks such as AngularJS, Node or Capacitor

Sounds perfect! What’s next?

If you think this role ticks all the boxes for you then we would love to have a chat over video call. The next step would be then to complete a simple code test to understand your skill level followed by an internal review and a potential offer for the role.
