Frontend Web Developer

MyBuilder.com helps homeowners find reliable tradespeople through the power of online reviews. We’re a market leader in the UK and are part of IAC, a well known New York based internet group (Vimeo, Match.com, Tinder, HomeAdvisor, etc.).

We want to work with people who are curious, honest, courageous and passionate - if that sounds like you and you want to work for an innovative, successful web business helping homeowners to find reliable tradespeople, then you may have found a new home.

Software development at MyBuilder

Our focus is to produce high quality, working and tested code which not only keeps us happy and productive, but also helps the business to succeed. Our development process has been honed through exploring various flavours of agile and we believe that our way of working helps us get the right things done at the right time.

We have open sourced a number of our tools and happily contribute back to projects we use.

Working on the Tech team at MyBuilder means working collaboratively to generate new ideas and solve problems. You’ll be regularly working alongside Engineers, Designers and UX-ers, as well as sharing your work and incorporating feedback from teams around the business.

Much of our frontend is powered by a variety of React apps, and much of our public-facing site is run in HTML CSS, PHP, and JS. We’re looking for a frontend developer to make sure that the entire site, and our react apps, look good and work for our users. This means implementing the styles that the design team comes up with, ensuring consistency across the site, and that the frontend is architected in a way that’s reusable and smart. We want someone who’s had experience working on a team, someone who’s passionate and driven, gets stuff done, and isn’t afraid to ask for help. We’re looking for someone who embodies our company’s core values. If this resonates with you, we’d love to meet you.

Responsibilities:

  • Developing and maintaining the website, and ensuring functioning buttons and good-looking pixels
  • Work alongside product, design, and tech to make sure the website and react apps all look as they should
  • Keen to learn new things, and enjoys keeping up with the latest front end technologies.
  • Helping the team to understand and develop the frontend HTML / CSS

Requirements:

  • Keen eye for design: Meaning suggesting changes to proposed designs or working autonomously without design altogether.
  • Highly skilled in HTML & CSS. Javascript and React are a plus as would be a desire to learn them.
  • Have a good understanding of web browsers across desktop, mobile, and tablet, and their relative flaws and capabilities
  • Experience in frontend engineering would be a plus

Why you’ll enjoy working at MyBuilder

We’ll set you up with a shiny new laptop and all the kit to get you up and running.
