Front-End Architect - £85-100K - Remote (twice quarterly) - Enterprise Intranet Solutions

Another New Year commences, and this opportunity could be exactly what you're looking for!

This company is an international provider of enterprise intranet solutions. They have approximately 180 employees with 100 of those based across the USA, 60 in India and a number of others spread across APAC and EMEA. Now, they are looking to build out in the UK.

They are in need of a self-starter, working with various engineering teams and helping plan out how to decompose the existing monolithic codebase into micro-frontends whilst also re-platforming our product onto AWS.

What you will be doing:

* Working closely with other leads and architects to plan out technical execution of new products and major features.
* Helping decompose our monolithic React SPA into multiple micro-frontends.
* Oversee the frontend aspects of re-platforming our product on to AWS.
* Collaborate with the design team and other frontend leads to roll out our in-house component library across all of our products.

What makes you a great fit for the team:

* You are user focused - we solve our customer's problems together; everybody has a say in planning, design & execution.
* You're a great communicator. This role will require leading discussions with multiple teams from different functions of the business. Presenting ideas and answering questions in open discussion is no problem for you.
* 5+ years of React experience with a strong understanding of it's internals as well as a thorough knowledge of the wider javascript ecosystem.
* 10+ years of overall experience with at least 5+ years of experience deploying and maintaining applications on AWS. Although this role is mostly frontend, a good understanding of the entire stack is a must.
* You love identifying new technologies, patterns, and techniques and planning out how we can roll them out across teams to improve productivity, code quality and user experience across every division.
* An affinity for profiling and analysing code to identify areas for improvement as well as a solid understanding of browser internals.
* Experience building an in-house component library with good understanding of modular CSS and bundlers.
* Comprehensive understanding of all aspects of automated testing and CI/CD including challenges specific to the frontend domain.
* Strong knowledge and understanding of functional programming patterns.
* Excited by working in a fast-paced startup environment.

They grew their revenue last year by 100% and are looking to grow it a further 70% across the next 12 months with the 2024 target that they've sent themselves to be at a billion dollar valuation!
