SENIOR FRONT END DEVELOPER SYDNEY

About You

At Kablamo, “We Make with Heart and Mind”. You are a maker. You love to bring to life amazing user interface designs to deliver exceptional outcomes. You are not faint hearted. In fact, you thrive in the face of challenge. You work hard but not so hard that you forget to celebrate success.

As a team member you are humble and selfless, but you are not afraid to have your opinion heard. When faced with ambiguity and complexity, you think outside the box to provide solutions rather than provide reasons to not. You like exploring ideas and iterating on the path to success. You embrace change.

As a craftsperson, you are obsessed with quality. Anything that can be automated - is. You understand the benefits of testing and well thought out solutions to ensure clients are left satisfied and wanting more.

From a career perspective, you have a demonstrated track record of working in cross functional agile teams to deliver complex technical projects at scale.

The Role 

Kablamo is a new generation of cloud technology vendor working at the forefront of distributed, highly scaled application development. We work with many of Australia’s largest businesses, including media companies, major banks and software companies. We are experts at the many disciplines required to develop new digital products which make end-to-end use of the cloud. We help clients build bespoke cloud-based systems, and to implement the practices, knowledge and tools to do so time and again. We help our customers to build their competitive advantage by harnessing the power of technology to drive real change in their business and for their end customers.

Our Front End Developers work at the bleeding edge of what is possible. They are passionate about delivering high quality results through repeatable processes and development patterns. “Pixel perfect” is something our Front End Developers live by – it’s not worth doing if it isn’t done well.

Our Front End Developers are curious by nature and love exploring the latest technologies. They have no greater satisfaction than seeing our clients’ disbelief at the speed and quality with which their application has “popped” to life!
