Havas Lynx is a communications agency with offices in Manchester, London and New York. In the UK, we have a team of 200 people who work to produce global campaigns that truly enhance people’s lives. The majority of our work focuses on healthcare matters and to deliver these messages, we create and deliver a wide range of engaging digital solutions, including responsive websites, microsites, mobile applications and games, to name a few. Due to our continued success, we are pleased to be seeking an additional Senior Front End Developer to join the team in Manchester.

We’re keen 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, technical knowledge and coding skills – you should be able to clearly demonstrate strong capability in all aspects of Front End Development; from HTML(5), CSS, jQuery and JavaScript. You’ll also have a strong working knowledge of build stacks, including Node.js, Grunt, SASS and their relevant frameworks. Knowledge of CMS packages such as WordPress and Expression Engine will also be an advantage, as will your understanding of QA processes – you’ll need to be confident in implementing cross-browser and JavaScript testing as necessary.

Whilst your technical skills are of the upmost importance in this position – genuine enthusiasm is also key. We work with cutting edge technologies, so we hope to hear from applicants who enjoy researching the area, proactively furthering their skills and sharing and debating new ideas. We’re also looking for someone who works well with people – you’ll be responsible for continually improving our processes and we have a range of personalities and disciplines in house, so you’ll need to be well versed in communicating complex, technical matters, in a clear manner.

In return, we offer a supportive environment where there is a high level of focus on your career development – we’re proud to offer our bespoke internal training programme; you can view more on LX Academy via the blog area of our website – We’re also very proud of our heritage and culture and we work in a sociable, friendly environment; take a look at our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter via @HAVASLYNXEU and @LX_workwithus for a closer look at what we get up to socially.
