Front End Developer

Technology Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear


Description

Position at LeoVegas UK

We are seeking experienced JavaScript Developers to join our growing platform domain team. As a Front-end Developer at LeoVegasUK, you will have the opportunity to develop and support innovative solutions building tomorrow’s Gaming Tech experience. Part of your responsibilities will be to help define architectural direction, implementing amazing user experiences, and driving features that add value for our customers.

You will work with your team & the Product Development domain to focus on developing innovative and high performing features with cloud technologies and high volume transactional systems that will give our players the greatest gaming experience, helping us reach our bigger organisation passion of becoming “King of Casino”.

Although the company has grown, and continues to do so, the tech teams work very much as a small company within. Having end-to-end responsibilities, the team gets to agree on what to build and follows it up with user testing, measuring and verifying the value and outcome. 

This is a great opportunity for you to have a direct impact on what to build, how to build it and what they’re being built for.

But why us? Our Tech Lead said “We work in a high performing live environment, which enables you to deploy and deliver your code straight to production. But this also requires you to write high performing and scalable code to ensure the continuous high quality and performance of our environments.”

We can offer you the opportunity to work with challenging tasks every day, within a tight-knit team of people that you can learn & grow with and the possibility to sit in award winning offices with flexible office hours to fit around your home-life.
