Who are we?
Airship is an established SaaS (software as a service) company based in Sheffield. We have
two products that serve the best and most exciting brands in the UK hospitality industry - think
Revolution, Byron, The Alchemist, Leon, Turtle Bay, Franco Manca, Zizzi and many more.
We’re looking for a Front End Developer to join our engineering team. The position is
remote-first and we’re open to some flexible working, so you’re not tied to the office.
Our development team are proud to be the 2021 winners of the UK Dev Awards “Best Dev
Team of the Year”, and we are looking to welcome someone aboard to help strengthen our
team even further.
Front End Developer - The Role:
Your role will kick off with mastering our overall product architectures, shadowing other
developers and learning the ropes. You’ll immediately drop into our sprint kick-offs and
stand-ups so you have exposure to our processes and learn how we work and who we are.
Once you’ve found your feet and know your way around our products, you’ll start
collaborating and brainstorming solutions with our Chief Experience Officer (CXO), Head of
Product and Head of Engineering, plus the rest of the development team.
You’ll help to modernise the front end of our older product while taking full advantage of our
newer PWA’s codebase and component libraries to quickly prototype, iterate and release new
features, working alongside other developers.
Bugs are bugs, and we’re not immune to them either. You’ll be quality-focussed, squashing
the critical ones as they arise, assisting the customer success team with troubleshooting
Front End Developer About You:
You’ll love creating and coding front-end progressive web apps with meticulous attention to
user-experience and detail. You’ll have a pixel-perfect eye for design and brand consistency
along with the ability to maintain great user-experience across all devices and screen sizes.
You’ll also care deeply about learning your craft as well as contributing to the success of our
products. You’ll no doubt have some of your own personal and professional projects under
your belt to show off your technical interests and proven track record, and probably be
somewhat obsessed with writing readable, secure, accessible, testable, standards-compliant
Our engineering team generally works on web based applications, so you’ll need to be very
be useful too. You will also be very familiar with APIs, including REST and GraphQL. You’ll
have a good understanding of building component libraries that can be used to quickly build
interfaces that are consistently on-brand.
A graduate degree is not a necessity. We welcome applications from self-taught developers
and graduates alike.
Benefits & culture
- We work (global pandemics-aside) from our custom fitted out offices in the iconic Park Hill,
right next to Sheffield Train station. We have views over the city, green spaces front and back
and plenty of space
- We equip everyone with a Macbook as standard (but if you’d rather work on something else,
we won’t force you!)
- There is an EMI share options scheme in place for employees, so our gain is your gain too
- We are very open to flexible and remote working, so if you’re interested but not able to work
in the office everyday, you can work remotely instead and we can meet up now and again for
some team contact days (for this reason, we’d prefer if you were somewhere in the UK)
