Front End Designer Developer

Job Description

Posted 7 months ago

We are looking to add a UX specialist and front-end developer to our small team of domain experts and developers building the next generation of healthcare workforce management systems.

We are looking for someone to take the lead on defining, designing and developing the front-end of our NHS appraisal, job planning and 360 multi-source feedback systems, highly regarded by clients and doctors alike for their breadth of features and simplicity of use.

We are working on a number of ambitious new features and you will be expected to work on everything from minor enhancements of existing functionality to playing a key role in defining and developing the UX and interface of new modules.  In addition, we plan to enter new segments with new products.

You will have substantial commercial experience of handling the full scope of front-end work, from initial conversations with clients, users and domain experts, through the design and iteration of complex forms, workflows and data visualisations, to implementing and supporting the required HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

Your experience will be in building SaaS products, maybe with a business focus, and with experience in healthcare management systems being an added bonus. You will be comfortable working in an agile environment, able to juggle both a long-term roadmap and requirements which may change at short notice.

You will be willing and able to learn the intricacies of a complex domain from both our team and from clients/users, and skilled at turning that knowledge into highly functional interfaces that are both information-rich and simple to use.

We are fully remote and you will be experienced at managing your own time and delivering to tight schedules without close supervision but with the full support of our tight-knit team, working closely with product managers and reporting to our head of development.

Alongside your technical skills, you will have excellent communication and collaboration skills, fluent in both written and spoken English, equally at home talking to users in domain terms as taking a detailed technical perspective.
