Front-end Developer

2 months ago
We're looking for someone with solid skills and experience in building web software. You'll be working on problem-solving products that are used by millions of people.

Since setting out in 2012, Etch has worked with dozens of startups and multinational companies to design and engineer software. 

We establish long-term relationships with clients to help them improve and maintain their online services.


We work closely with large teams to design and build web apps and design systems, including:
  • An Angular design system used by a team of 50+ developers, to develop multiple front-end apps, for 6 different brands and millions of end-users.
  • A Vue component library, including assistance with integration. We work closely with the internal development team to support the UI used in multiple apps and countries.
  • A suite of apps and widgets used by a UK sustainability charity.
  • A suite of apps for a company in the accountancy industry. Over 40,000 users a month depend on this software to achieve their goals.
  • You are someone who enjoys the endless endeavor of creating and improving user interfaces.
  • You have experience in one or more of these libraries and frameworks: Vue, Angular, or React.
  • You build interfaces that look great on any screen size and can be used with keyboard, touch, or mouse input.
  • You have knowledge of the latest techniques and technology used to develop SPAs and PWAs.
  • You always consider user journeys, states, and interactions when building views.
  • You care about the fundamentals of the web — accessibility, usability, performance.
  • You strive to write robust, maintainable, future-friendly code.

On a daily basis you’ll be:
  • Gathering information to understand new requirements.
  • Building reusable components.
  • Creating interface views and states.
  • Testing and refining interactions.
  • Communicating progress with clients.

You’ll also spend some time:
  • Fixing bugs, updating and maintaining codebases.
  • Contributing to proposals for new projects.
  • Scoping features and planning sprints.

PerksWork remotely
Canterbury (near London) is our hometown, but we’re a distributed team so you can work from anywhere in the UK and benefit from flexible hours.

Hangout with the team
We arrange quarterly meet-ups to bring everyone together and hang out for a few days.

Relax and unplug
It’s important that we step away from the screen. We work 4-day weeks in the summer, we take an extra week off at Christmas, and everyone is entitled to a paid sabbatical when they decide that they need to unplug.

Learn and improveEach member of the team gets a “betterment budget” to pay for conference trips and books, or improve their workspace with new furniture and tech.
