Front End Developer - Contractor
Who we are
Unthink is a strategic advisory that defies old ways of thinking in order to help businesses find new ways to succeed.
Our nimble, custom-built teams use data science to unpack growth barriers and behavioural economics, design thinking and agile development to build sustainable outcomes for our valued clients.
We help businesses thrive in today’s exponential economy, by exploring growth strategies beyond building efficiency and undertaking incremental business evolution.
About the role
We are currently recruiting a number of team members for an exciting mid to long-term transformation project with an ASX-listed client in the health and wellness sector.
Working with management, sales and customers of the client organisation, this is an opportunity to help shape and evolve a growing organisation and brand. We are looking for a Mid Front-end Developer Contractor - 3 Days Per Week (ABN Required), who can work with designers, full stack developers, QA engineers, project managers and product managers to build a digital product and platform. This is a six month project, with a view to extend.
You are an articulate contributor and enthusiastic collaborator, used to working within an Agile environment and in cross functional teams where you can collaborate with designers to rapidly prototype ideas. You love turning crisp and creative designs into super-succinct code and beautiful interactions within challenging projects. You believe “Less is more” as you create code in components and modules rather than by pages.
You’re uncompromising in your commitment and attention to detail. You enjoy a challenge and you take a ‘mobile first’ approach as standard. You like to keep things simple and know how to explain a technical issue simply, whether to a client or an internal team member.
You believe in keeping your code clean and document business & use cases requirements using Confluence & other software. You consider yourself a bit of an artist, as most of your sites have slight interactions that make the user experience a little more usable and friendly - did someone say animations/interactions, parallax and JQuery effects? You’re a team player and have a natural willingness to help others and also learn new technologies.
