LV=GI are looking for an experienced Senior Front End Developer to join our family of accomplished people. The role will be based at our Bournemouth or Croydon offices with the opportunity to work from home 2/3 days a week. We adopt a flexible working environment with a focus on learning & development
You will have the opportunity to lead on new and existing projects, using your experience and expertise to support junior members and the wider team to produce high quality products. Day to day, you will get the chance to build custom code from scratch, while also working on making our current products the best they can be.
You will be backed by a highly diverse and talented team, and leaders who are passionate about creating great things. You will analyse user requirements, designing and building technical solutions and support systems using the full development life cycle within agile methodologies.
Talk to us about flexible working . . .
When it comes to flexible working, we’ll do our best to accommodate your needs. At LV= General Insurance many of our employees work flexibly in many different ways, from part-time, flexi-time, job shares, an element of working from home or compressed hours.
We want the best people working at our organisation and we recognise that those people aren’t always available full-time.
So if you need any adjustments, let us know during your interview. If it’s right for our customers, our business and for you, then we’ll do everything we can to make it happen.
What are we looking for?
At LV=GI we thrive on working collaboratively to put our internal and external customers at the heart of what we do. Good communication, both written and verbal is important to deliver requirements and keep in touch with your stakeholders. Being able to work well with others and using your initiative to spot the things others can’t are vital skills for the successful applicant to possess.
The technologies we’d like you to be familiar with are outlined below, so any experience with these should be outlined on your CV, and expect to answer questions on how you’ve used these commercially if you’re shortlisted to interview:
- CSS/SCSS (with pre-processors)
- Gulp & Webpack
You’ll be familiar with the end to end delivery lifecycle, including documenting and providing test support. An interest in web accessibility and performance would be advantageous.
You will be working from home sometimes, so you’ll need to be a self-starter and reliable, but also be happy to join a video call to work collaboratively too. As a Senior Developer, you’ll be eager to share your knowledge and best practice and support junior colleagues in the team too.
Why Work for Us?
Exciting things are happening at LV=General Insurance (LV=GI). Having recently become part of the Allianz family, we’re proud to be one of the largest personal insurers in the UK.
Driven by our pride and passion, we will always do the right thing to inspire trust in our people and our customers. That’s why we’ve made it our mission to become Britain’s best-loved insurer, by helping people look after what they love.
