Frontend Developer | 6 month Contract | Angular


It’s not often you have an opportunity to work on a project that is socially good for the world by helping others that really need help. A role where you can see the impact of your work (especially within a contract role) and feel good when you go home at the end of the day is, in my opinion, priceless.
If you’re still reading, then that means you resonate with this statement in some way. Good. You’re just the person we are looking for.

Affix has partnered with a HealthTech startup that is working hard to make a genuine difference to people’s lives, for the better.  I’d like to introduce you to Global Kinetics Corporation.

Founded in 2007, their leading product has been developed by neurologists and enables the precise monitoring, quantification, and reporting of movement patterns of neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s disease.  This is a great opportunity to work for a business that has some serious purpose, and who really care about the work they are doing. Their IoT platform is currently in 17 countries, with 18,000 people using their devices. Along with this they are growing substantially, and this is where you come in…

What we need

We are looking for a contractor who is an experienced Senior Front-End Engineer to work in their highly collaborative Melbourne team. You will be supported by an engineering team of five (and growing!), & a Tech Lead.
These guys are looking to draw on the expertise of this person to drive forward consistency across their application and front-end practices. The ability to think on your toes, really take initiative and communicate well with the rest of the business is essential.

What you will be working on

The focus of the role will be to implement a complete user interface in the form of a mobile and desktop as Angular web app, with an emphasis on security, user-friendliness and performance. Main duties of the role include creating modules and components and coupling them together into a functional app. Along with….

  • Delivering user-friendly, complete front-end application that behaves consistently;
  • Ensuring high performance on mobile and desktop including cross-browser compatibility on supported operating systems;
  • Writing component based reusable code, and building customization for specific use case while maintaining a common UI framework;
  • Coordinating the workflow between the visual designer, the HTML coder, and yourself;
  • Cooperating with the back-end engineers in the process of building the RESTful API and reduce load to API from front end, wherever possible;

All the technical bits…

  • Experience in Angular 4, 5 or 6 … 6 being the ideal – but if you haven’t been exposed to it before then this is a great opportunity to get your hands on it
  • Deep knowledge of AngularJS practices
  • Ability to create self-contained, reusable, and testable modules and components
  • Ability to provide SEO solutions for single page apps;
  • Extensive knowledge of CSS and JS methods for providing performant visual effects and keeping the framerate above 30fps at all times;
  • Thorough understanding of the responsibilities of the platform, database, API, caching layer, proxies, and other web services used in the system;
  • Experience with building the infrastructure for serving the front-end app and assets.
  • Any experience in automation testing for the front end would be a real bonus
  • Any medical device experience would be highly desirable but definitely not essential

What’s in it for you

This isn’t a run of the mill role, you will have the opportunity to have an impact on patients, build satisfying work, and make a difference.
High collaboration, great tools and a supportive team are guaranteed, along with real growth opportunities to lead & mentor.
