Senior Frontend Developer – Product Implementation (Product Implementation) Cardiff

The job in short

At Backbase you'll join a team of highly skilled Frontend Developers using the latest web and mobile technologies to build engaging and innovative banking experiences.

Meet the job

As a Senior Frontend Developer, you create the best possible omnichannel user experiences using a modern, responsive stack and tooling, securing cross-browser compatibility. You take the lead of the development of Frontend software focusing on functional and non-functional aspects.
You write beautiful and smart code, and you ensure the solution is tested, accessible, extensible, maintainable, secure, and performs well. The devil is in the detail, and nothing escapes your sight.
Backbase speaks Agile software development, just like you. Implementations generally take around half a year, during which you may find yourself travelling to meet teams in other Backbase locations, build relationships and liaise with other developers on-site.
The pressure is always on, the clock is constantly ticking, and customer expectations are sky high. With your confidence and skills, you meet and exceed customer desires. You will encounter situations that demand prompt, yet smart actions.
You will be part of a multidisciplinary team, and provide guidance to more junior Frontend Engineers. You are encouraged to introduce new ideas and challenge others.
When not working on customer projects, you will be providing support to our customers, coaching a team of Frontend developers on the client and partner side, or collaborating with our R&D teams to help shape the future of banking.
