Front End Developer

Strictly no recruitment agencies. You must have the right to work in the UK.

Role and responsibilities

We are seeking an enthusiastic front end developer to join the Kobas team. We’re looking for someone who can demonstrate solid JavaScript, AngularJS, HTML 5 and LESS/CSS skills, who will be a significant contributor to our web applications and EPoS software.

We develop on virtual machines which means we can code from anywhere. Kobas code has been inspired by Cornish beaches and Spanish sunshine, as well as our main workspace in London (a converted Foundry between Waterloo and London Bridge). We chat on Slack as much as we meet in meeting rooms and our clients’ swanky venues both in the town and country.

In terms of technologies, Kobas is written in PHP 7.1 with AngularJS and LESS. Git is our version control system and we track feature development and bugs in YouTrack. Our production platform is 100% Amazon AWS, from Route 53 through S3, EC2 instances and of course RDS.

About you

If all the terms and technologies above strike a chord with you, you’ve got a serious advantage here. Other stuff that would be handy:

  • Belief in the importance of excellent user experience and how to achieve it.
  • Experience in writing unit tests, and working with legacy code.
  • Working in a team – while you must know your tech, we’re all about people and teamwork.
  • Understanding how to maintain cross-browser and device compatibility.
  • Any experience with the other technologies we use, is always a plus; PHP, SQL, Git, Gulp, NPM, Jasmine, RESTful APIs, data modelling, automated testing, Linux command line

All this isn’t to say that we don’t want to hear about better ways of doing things. We absolutely are not looking for drones to join the team and be served up bugs. We’re looking for someone to help move us forward as we grow.

You’ll be highly motivated, passionate about technology and hungry to help grow the company and your career. This is a fantastic opportunity to join a bootstrapped startup at ground level.

The package

  • Competitive salary.
  • Flexible working hours.
  • Your choice of hardware and operating systems.
  • Laptop for business and private use.
  • Career growth – we want you to grow with us.
  • Regular social events – we are in the hospitality sector after all!
  • A great office (free tea, coffee, fruit, soft drinks and beer fridge) in the heart of Southwark.

Location

We’re located at the top of the Blackfriars Foundry Annexe, just a few minutes walk from Waterloo, Southwark and Borough tube. Being in a converted foundry means we’ve got plenty of workspace in a building that still expresses its historical roots, but naturally we’ve modernised it with air conditioning and connectivity.

Our location means there are lots of exciting breakfast and lunch options on our doorstep, and of course we’ve got many clients to visit in and around London for those evenings out.

About Kobas

The Kobas team provides software-as-a-service to the hospitality industry that completely transforms their operational routine from dull spreadsheet-based bump and grind to quick, point and click management of their bars and restaurants. We unite with our customers to help them not only benefit from our industry leading technology, but also to ensure that best practices are followed so that knowledge is shared allowing all our clients to achieve maximum ROI.
