My client is currently recruiting for a Senior Developer who has in depth knowledge of Node.JS.

* Identify limitations and refactor to maximise the framework's potential
* Strengthen validations/logging/exception handling/coding style etc.
* Bolster test suites (Mocha) and technical documentation as to handover to the team, attract a community and aid cohesion with external development
* Work to establish an efficient, low-overhead build/development pipeline
* Work to establish a secure/robust production environment
* Develop best-practice team processes (change management, release management) and assist with developing a team training strategy
* Take a strong lead working with external suppliers (which will be tasked with producing frontend/tooling/branding etc.) to flex the framework and accommodate requirements as they crystallise.

* Have solid/proven 3+ years' experience developing Node.js applications
* Ability to produce high-quality output to tight deadlines over a sustained period
* To have taken a senior role in the successful deployment of multiple mission-critical Node.js-backed services
* To have strong communication/presentation skills, both in written documentation and in-person
* Ability to "think framework" - experience working on/contributing to a Node.js framework would be highly desirable
