My client is a European primary research firm focused on facilitating consultations with leading industry specialists in Europe. Clients include top business leaders, mostly active in financial investment and strategy consulting, who seek to develop insights and gather critical, sometimes niche information regarding investment decisions in European markets.
Based in London, we are a team of multi-cultural individuals who work closely together to build a successful and efficient company which is expanding quickly and becoming rapidly more successful in their market.
All our activities revolve around our IT systems, which are purposely developed in-house to deal efficiently with our unusual industry requirements and already great they plan to make it even better.
This role will allow the successful candidate a lot of autonomy; the job itself revolves around designing and coding the front-end of a very complex user interface for an Intranet/Extranet application. The business requires very large amounts of information to be presented to internal users, and complex logic to interact with it. A well designed interface is crucial to efficiency, quality and happiness.
The whole development team is based in our central London office. We follow a classic Agile methodology, with short release cycles, daily scrum meetings. Technology-wise, everything is web-based, LAMP platform with some server applications like search engines and I/O filters. We rely more on sound architecture, smart tools and painless interfaces and you will have the freedom to choose the technologies on which to base the front-end.
