iROKO Partners, the world’s largest distributor of Nigerian entertainment content online, is seeking a Senior UX Front End Web Developer to join its team in London starting immediately.

We’re looking for someone with experience working in HTML, CSS, JavaScript & jQuery, with a strong understanding of HTML5 and CSS3 and the principles of mobile web development.

This person will lead the front-end development and be responsible for the planning and execution of new features whilst managing junior developers and supporting existing code base.

They will have a keen eye for user experience and will be constantly trying to improve our products and take them to the next level.

The qualities we’re looking for:

  • The ability to hand-code clean, semantic, standards-compliant XHTML/HTML and CSS.
  • Will have a firm understanding of responsive design and how to implement it.
  • You understand how jQuery should and can be used to enhance a site and its interactivity.
  • You’re able to identify and tackle cross-browser quirks.
  • You are committed to figuring out the best user experience and validating ideas with A/B testing if necessary.
  • You are able to utilise CSS3 and HTML5 while still maintaining a fallback for browsers that don’t support it.
  • You’re familiar with code versioning systems like Subversion and Git.
  • You have experience with (or interest in) dynamic CSS pre-processors such as SASS and LESS.
  • You know how to navigate Photoshop to translate into code.
  • You don’t just “cut things up” — you translate design into a brilliant user experience and you’re not satisfied until it looks pixel-perfect.
  • You’re passionate about writing logical, well-structured code that’s easy to navigate.
  • You have experience or a keen interest in building mobile optimised web sites
  • Can confidentially manage a small team of developers, delegating tasks and scheduling work.
