Job Description

About us

The Property Software Group is the UK`s largest supplier of software solutions to the property industry and is part of ZPG Property Services. Approximately 40,000 agents from 8,000 estate & letting agency branches use our software, supported by our team of over 240 staff operating from four UK locations.

PropertyFile is our latest product launch, with its online software, mobile app and API providing a 24/7 tool to agents to communicate with their clients. It`s an exciting and innovative proposition that will help shape the future of the sector.

The Role

We are looking to add a full-time, Senior Frontend / JavaScript developer to our PropertyFile team to take ownership of the frontend development and help bring our product to the next level. Together with our team of designers, we need your help to continue improving our user facing platform and give our agents and clients a top-class user experience.

You will help us decide which frontend technologies to use and will become the main source of frontend knowledge for the team.

Being a fully remote team, we encourage active collaboration through Slack and video conferencing in Hangouts, including pair programming, show and tell sessions, sprint demos and retrospectives.

About You

You will be excited by the prospect of working within an agile team delivering a constantly evolving, innovative product and will feel equally comfortable working with other developers as well as with designers and product owners.

You are an experienced frontend developer with strong knowledge of JavaScript frameworks, passionate about writing high quality code and not afraid of experimenting with new technologies when needed.

You have a dedicated and private space to enable home working without interruptions, as well as being able to travel to our office in London once a week.

Ideally, you have access to examples of previous work and you are willing for us to approach your previous employers or clients to request testimonials or references.

What you get from us

  • Competitive salary and benefits.
  • Opportunity to work remotely for most of the week with flexible hours. We`re more interested in high quality code and consistency than a regimented 9 to 5.
  • Direct involvement and the ability to influence the project`s future direction. We are a team; everyone`s opinion is important.

What we need from you

  • Extensive experience developing user facing responsive websites using Bootstrap
  • Excellent knowledge of vanilla JavaScript
  • Experience with JS frameworks, preferably Angular
  • Understanding of web accessibility standards
  • Exposure to frontend automated testing
  • Excellent verbal and written communications skills
  • Excellent time management - we won`t keep prodding you with a stick, but still expect deadlines to be met

This will give you bonus points

  • Frontend performance optimisation
  • Experience developing mobile apps
  • Experience with Google Analytics tracking
