At Argos, we are looking for a talented and passionate front-end developer to join our fast-paced and innovative digital team. We are looking to hire a skilled developer who is pragmatic but obsessed with reaching for the best with experience in building customer focused and high conversion web pages.
We believe in building fast MVPs using agile methologies to deliver real business value whilst taking the opportunity to innovate and build a website that we’re proud of. As a member of our team you have a real voice in the future of Argos’ digital strategy whilst being a member of a fun and engaging team. We are driven to rethink and disrupt the norm using the best tools for a highly immersive retail experience.
We believe in pro-active communication, without it we don’t learn, grow or understand the big picture. Every day you’ll have the opportunity to talk to the team via daily stand-ups but also work cross-functionally with the wider business to ensure commercial success.
Productivity and Quality
All work that you complete will be reviewed and go through QA and testing. If you commit code, you put your name on it and you’ll be measure against that. Conversely, you will also be measured against productivity. Great code is excellent, but if you take too long to produce that code, that will be counter-productive.
The technologies of today will not be the technologies of tomorrow and so without continual investment in learning and finding new ways of solving problems, we’ll fall behind. It is imperative that you don’t become attached to “the way I do things”. We believe in continual iteration and growth through communication and leadership with your peers.
