Description

On behalf of Derivco, Ciklum is looking for a Middle Front End Developer  to join the Kyiv team on a full-time basis.

Who are we?

We are the Poker Team, which is part of the Network Games business unit within Derivco. We are a fast paced, technologically proficient and exceptionally talented group of people. Our multi-award-winning software platform is technologically diverse and offers challenges in many different areas.

How we do it?

We work hard and naturally we play hard, but most importantly we don’t take ourselves too seriously. Our core business values are passion, ownership and care; we believe in our people and it shows! We constantly challenge ourselves to be better than we were yesterday.

Responsibilities

You will be analyzing, designing and developing new features for our cross-platform (iOS, Android, Windows, macOS) poker client and supporting apps.  These new features will be tackled through an agile approach while actively engaging with the team.

Requirements

2+ Years’ experience in Front End web development

The ability to work independently and collaboratively with the team. Integrity, adaptability and excellent communication skills.  A passion for lifelong learning and strong problems solving skills.

Ninja Skills, as below:

  • Embrace SOLID Principles
  • Must have worked with design patterns in designing solutions
  • Experience building large frontend applications in TypeScript / JavaScript
  • A passion for building engaging UX and UI using HTML5, CSS3/LESS is essential
  • Exposure to Virtual Dom (i.e. HTML Dom abstraction) ideal

Desirable

  • Unit testing experience as we use a TDD approach to development using Karma/Jasmine frameworks with all code produced
  • Exposure to automation testing frameworks, especially Selenium, would be great as this is used in our CI/CD
  • We use Trunk-Based Development with GIT as part of our CI/CD process so exposure to this would be ideal!

What's in it for you

You will be working closely with our other development and IT teams located in Durban – South Africa, Douglas – Isle of Mann and Tallinn – Estonia.   We need your help in mentoring more junior developers as you join us in creating a truly awesome poker product.

Although we have a large codebase, existing standards and well-defined processes, we are always looking for new technology to take advantage of and are always keen to embrace change!  We embrace innovation in everything we do (and hand out some pretty cool prizes for it as well).

We’re convinced that we employ some of the smartest people in the business, so if you like being challenged and feel that you could contribute, we look forward to hearing from you!
