Vacancy: Full Stack Developer

Alain Ritchie

Alain Ritchie


Neverbland® are looking for an experienced full stack JavaScript developer to join our engineering team.

The engineering team is a big part of Neverbland but we by no means roll alone. With incredible researchers, UX and UI designers, business analysts and project managers all in house, you'll be exposed to the good stuff with the right level of support.

We call ourselves a JavaScript studio, although the reality is that you'll be working with a lot more than vanilla JS. Frameworks, tools and languages such as TypeScript, Next.js (React), Vercel, Tailwind CSS, Sanity, GraphQL, GROQ, tRPC, GSAP and Framer Motion all come out to play regularly.

You might not have lots of experience in all of these, but that's OK. As long as you have strong foundational understanding with experience in similar roles, you're a keen learner, have a creative way of solving problems and love to get stuck in, there is a good chance you'll fit in just fine.

Working with your peers, you'll not only be actively contributing to the real-world projects, you'll help to scope out project estimates, work with designers to transform ideas into realities and contribute to our never ending conversations about the technology landscape. As someone with experience, you’ll be expected to act as lead developer on projects too.

Hopefully, you love the idea of developing highly functional yet very beautiful, immersive, well constructed, data-rich web applications with a hyper-clean and focused UI. Sometimes these things get complex, but with the team around you we can figure it out together.

Neverbland offers a Hybrid working environment, meaning you're very welcome to spend the majority of time working at home / in a sound working environment. Equally, we have a wonderful, fully equipped studio in Shoreditch that is there to be used by all. Time spent in the studio is very high value when it comes to learning, however we've proved that the model can work well virtually too.

We believe that the best work happens where different points of view come together to solve problems. We recognise that many groups are currently underrepresented in our industry and seek people that can bring diverse perspectives, life experiences, educational backgrounds and cultures to the team. As such, we encourage applications from women and other minority groups in the industry. If you think this is the right role for you, even if you don't tick off everything listed in the job spec, please get in touch.
