Finsbury & Garth Ltd are creating a new mobile application to help users find and discover the best independent businesses in their towns and cities. Back-End development is now complete and the company will soon commence alpha and beta testing before launching the app later this year. Although the purpose of the app is simple, functionality is extensive including map pages, profiles and feeds. The founders want to ensure the app is intuitive, conforms with modern UI/UX principles and creates an engaging user experience.
We are looking for a talented Front-End App Developer who can produce the creative vision for our mobile application. All back end development work is complete and we have a simple ‘skin’ currently in place for the front-end. The role of the Front-End Developer will be to take this skin and align it with the creative vision as documented in our InVision mock-ups.
Responsibilities will include translation of the design wireframes and InVision mock-ups to actual code that will produce the visual elements of the application. You will work closely with the CTO and CEO to bridge the gap between the graphical designs and the technical implementation.
Following alpha and beta testing, and the validation of further features to include in the app, we are likely to require further front-end input. Therefore, we are looking for someone who can provide a high quality service, work efficiently, and available for work on future builds and functionality.
Develop UI/UX features as described and displayed in the graphical designs
Ensure and advise on the technical feasibility of the UI/UX designs
Work with the CEO and CTO to produce the front end vision for the app
Optimize application for maximum speed and scalability
Build reusable code for future use
Ensure all user input is validated before submission to back-end
Where appropriate, alter and refactor images and icons for optimal use within the app
Skill and Qualifications
Proficient understanding of Ionic Framework, HTML5 and Angular JS
Proficient knowledge of image authoring tools
Familiarity with Photoshop is a plus
Ability to take skeleton frontends to completion
Above all, we are looking for someone can work both independently and with input/support from the company founders. We are excited about this application we are bringing to market and would like to hire an individual who will strive to realize our creative vision and ensure we deliver a high quality user experience.
