Senior Front End Developer (Contract)

We're looking for a front-end whiz who loves what they do and respects great UX & Design.

A Word on Switch

At Switch we’re a pretty relaxed bunch of designers, project managers and developers. We are a multiple award winning agency that love delivering solutions that really help our customers. We are an equal opportunity employer that has recently developed solutions for Ricoh, Mirvac, Yamaha Motors, Accor, The Wiggles and Teachers Mutual Bank

About the Role

We need a senior front end developer to work with us on a dedicated project. It is a 6-month contract, with the opportunity to go permanent at the end of the contract period..

You must have a minimum of 3 years experience, as you will be pivotal in maintaining our reputation as a company which focuses on delivering excellent customer service and award-winning solutions.

You will collaborate with our Project Managers, Designers and Developers to develop a scalable solution from concept through to production in our Sydney office, which is just a short walk from Wynyard station.

Your efforts will be primarily on a new project, giving you a chance to focus all your energy in getting it done well and done right.

What Are We Looking For?

The successful candidate should take pride in their work, have a positive attitude and show that you can not only work independently but also as a part of a team. You’ll be a self-starter who takes ownership and accountability of their decisions and time.

Above all, your focus on quality is complemented by a passion for continuous improvement and a customer-first philosophy.

On top of this you will:

  • Want to work with passionate, curious people on a team that values bold ideas
  • Be happy to put your hand up to solve challenging problems to help our customers excel in their industries
  • Enjoy engaging the team to generate and evaluate ideas, because you know that great design is even better with an awesome build
  • Be a fast learner, able to adapt to new environments and workflows
  • Have great communication skills, because you know when everyone is on the same page, the project runs like clockwork
  • Be able to follow procedures and coding standards, but also be confident with introducing new ideas wherever you think improvements can be made
  • Be comfortable and confident working on-site with the client within the Sydney area
  • Have an appreciation for UX & Design, ensuring that the customer always comes first


The successful applicant will need to have:

  • A minimum of 3 years experience building large scale web applications
  • Expert knowledge of HTML, SCSS & Javascript
  • Commercial experience using VueJS
  • Familiarity with state management libraries (such as Vuex)
  • Experience building on a Headless CMS
  • Javascript Task-Runners, Build Tools and Bundlers
  • Experience with version control systems (namely Git)
  • Ability to write performant, scalable and reusable UI components
  • Good personal time management and organisational skills (yes, your code needs to be tidy too)

Nice To Haves

Not absolutely essential to the position, but it would be great if you had knowledge or exposure to:

  • Sitecore Experience, or equivalent enterprise-level CMS
  • Working in a Microsoft .NET environment
  • Javascript Object Oriented Programming
  • Experience building e-commerce websites
  • SCRUM / Agile methodologies
  • SEO and Analytics
