Front-End Dev with Python backend experience -- 2 - 23/11/2017 19:00 EST

At decisionLab, our mission is to help organisations change and grow by making better, evidence-based decisions.

We build models and create tools to solve challenging business problems using the latest technologies from Data Science, Analytical Modelling and Operational Research (Mathematical Optimisation and Simulation).

Our work has improved systems used by millions of people in the UK within the Water, Power, Security, Aerospace and Defence industries.

Role Purpose

Our client is responsible for managing a 200-year-old network of over 3200km of canal and river navigations in the UK, with an asset base totalling £18 billion in MEAV (modern equivalent asset value). The client is currently transforming the asset management strategy to better prioritise and optimise the interventions on their network.

We are developing an asset management model, which will be used as a decision support tool by the client to assess asset health and plan interventions. The model will be deployed in the form of a cloud-based web-app.

Role Profile

As a full-stack developer, you will play a key role in developing the user interface and everything front-end. You'll be mainly involved in building new front-end features from scratch based on pre-existing design mock-ups and working alongside the team to create an amazing user experience. You will have a strong eye for the look and feel, but should be able to grasp the issues the back-end may be facing. Therefore, although we would not expect expert back-end knowledge, some sort of back-end knowledge would be helpful, such as basic knowledge of Python (Flask). Our team is keen on learning new skills, so we are especially enthusiastic to hiring someone keen on sharing knowledge.

Key tasks:

Developing the front-end for one of our tools

Documenting and testing your code

Working along-side a back-end responsible team member and offering support for possible arising problems

Collaborating on the UX, the look and feel of the app with the rest of the team

Person Specification

Requirements:

Be able to confidently demonstrate at least one project you have been involved in

Proficiency in modern front-end technologies (e.g. HTML/CSS, npm, core javaScript)

Proficiency in a front-end framework (preferably ReactJS)

Capability to develop a front-end codebase from scratch

Appreciation of what makes a good UX

Preferably have a degree (BSc or MSc) in computer science or similar

We don’t expect you to be a back-end expert, but would anticipate experience with some (preferably Python based server deployment like Flask or Django)

It would be an advantage to have experience/awareness of:

Docker-based systems

Deployment to AWS or Microsoft Azure

D3 (or other javascript based charting libraries)

Use of Agile methodologies for continuous delivery/deployment

Conditions

Our office is based in South London, however, this role can be carried out remotely and from outside of the UK. You must be available to work/be contacted during the hours of 9am – 6pm UTC/GMT. It is envisaged that the contract will end in February 2018.

Pay range: £25-£30/hour

The contract will cover an allowance of 20 working days with an average of 8 hours work per day – the work schedule will be agreed between decisionLab and the selected candidate prior to contract placement.

Please note: As an associate, you will be working on a self-employed basis and will not be directly employed by decisionLab.

The deadline for applications is 11 December 2017, however, the position may be filled prior to this as there is an immediate need to fill this role.

Skills: Docker, Javascript, node.js, Python, React.js
