    • Develop Unit Tests to validate the functional requirements of the applications
    • Ensure documentation is maintained in accordance with established standards
    • Work with the Exploratory and Automated Testing teams to ensure an understanding of solutions and testing requirements

    A full role profile is available to interested candidates.

    The Candidate

    As a company that has ambitious plans to be listed as a Sunday Times Top 100 Company in 2019 we naturally only recruit the best talent to our business. We are looking for Software Developers with 2-3 years of relevant commercial web development experience alongside 1-3 years of commercial React experience. The ideal candidate will be able to demonstrate strong JavaScript/CSS/HTML skills and experience in building single page applications. Experience of React native, Typescript and working within the financial industry are desirable although not essential.

    You will be a professional who displays the right attitude, behaviours, work ethic and desire to achieve. You’ll recognise a good company to work for and value the focus we place on looking after our staff and ensuring that we meet our fun-work-balance as much as our work-life-balance.

    You’ll already meet our company value regarding being focused on outcomes and you’ll be eager to share with us all the success that you’ve had. You’ll have excellent relationship building skills and use these to build great working relationships with those around you.  You’ll have an enthusiasm for automated testing and a keen eye for design. People are at the heart of JHC and we recognise employees who strive to be the best, are invested in what they do and are prepared to roll up their sleeves and go the extra mile.
