Contract Type:

HAVAS LYNX is a global communications group, formed from Creative Lynx and HAVAS 4D, leading digital agencies in Europe and the USA respectively. With 250 employees and supported by the wider HAVAS network, we deliver truly global campaigns based on robust local insight. As a group we have been responsible for a series of industry firsts in social media, closed-loop marketing and mobile and our team of over 180 professionals, based in the heart of Manchester city centre comprise our European head office, from which we work closely with our colleagues in London and New York.

We are proud winners of prestigious awards for effectiveness and innovation and we’re looking for a Senior Front End Developer to join our busy and expanding Software Team – we’re looking to hear from applicants who are from a digital background and who have either worked in a creative agency, or a software development house.

The successful Developer will be able to show us a strong portfolio of work which clearly portrays your individuality and initiative. You will be able to demonstrate a very strong capability in all aspects of Front End Development; HTML, CSS and JavaScript. At LYNX, you will be working with experienced and progressive Software Engineers on sophisticated web applications and as such, there will be a lean towards JavaScript in particular – you’ll be working with Javascript MVC frameworks such as Knockout and Ember, so being able to demonstrate sound knowledge and experience in these areas will offer a significant advantage.

What’s really important however, is a genuine enthusiasm. You’ll be based in an Agile project environment and will be working with practices such as Test Driven Development and the SOLID design principles, which ensure we are approaching our projects using best practice, so you should be open to feedback and eager to continually develop your skills in line with these approaches. We work with cutting edge technologies and development frameworks, so we hope to hear from applicants who enjoy researching the area, sharing and debating new ideas. We’re proud to offer our comprehensive internal training programme to all employees to aid them in their new learning and personal development – you can view more information via the blog area of our website

Based in the heart Manchester City Centre, we enjoy a busy, sociable team environment. Personality is key and we’re looking for a team player with excellent initiative, issues resolution and problem solving skills, who remains calm under pressure and has bags of energy. It is really important that you have your own opinion and ideas and the confidence to share them.
