They say that the average job seeker spends approximately 60 seconds reading through a job ad before deciding whether to press 'apply' or 'next'. So with that in mind, I wanted to craft a short (and hopefully sweet) ad that ticks all of the boxes but doesn't represent my own version of War & Peace...

An innovative and forward-thinking Software House is looking to recruit a skilled Junior Front End Developer to be based out of their office in the Chelmsford area (Essex). The role is newly created and is part of a wider recruitment drive in their product team, with the organisation looking to get their headcount in place before the inevitably hectic end of the year.

The organisation in question develop a number of bespoke products in the SaaS space, with said products being used by a number of leading organisations across a range of verticals including Retail, Manufacturing and Automotive. This role will see you work across all of those products, taking business concepts and transforming them into complete and responsive UI's using technologies including HTML5, CSS3, Bootstrap and JavaScript frameworks including Vue, Angular, React and ES6. You will be embedded within an Agile development team and your role will ensure that the development and maintenance of their products remains consistent throughout, whilst always adhering to their company-wide technical standards.

But enough about them, this ad is about you. Specifically, what you need to be able to bring to the table in order to apply for this role...

* You need to have proven experience working as either a Front End Developer or a Web Developer, ideally in a Software House or Tech Consultancy.
* You should have an understanding of core OO standards and Agile development methodologies including Scrum and Kanban.
* You should have proven commercial experience working with core web technologies such as HTML5, CSS3, SASS, LESS, Bootstrap and JQuery. Wider experience working with JavaScript frameworks (e.g. React, Angular, Vue, ES6) would be a huge bonus.
* You should have proven communication skills and a background working in collaborative development teams.
* You should have knowledge of tools including Git, NPM and Gulp.
* Finally, you should have a genuine passion for web technologies and a desire to keep up to date with the latest trends and technologies.

In return, you will benefit from a genuinely positive company culture where collaboration is actively encouraged. You will be given loads of time to up-skill and will also be given the opportunity to cross-train into different technologies. Finally, you will benefit from tailored career progression, with this role offering you the chance to progress into either technical architecture or management later on down the line.
