Full Stack Javascript Developer - Salon Advantage Systems Ltd

Closing date: 01/01/2019

Salon Advantage Systems Ltd

15-17 Middle Street




Job Description:

Salon Advantage has been developing point of sale and CRM software for hairdressing and beauty salons for 15 years.

Less than a year ago (after 2 years in our development labs) we launched a brand new, fully cloud based system designed to be run in a browser but feel like a desktop – on any device. With a few taps, customers can have a full-service salon system up and running and ready to support their business of any size – solo stylists to big multi salon chains. We provide more than just software though. With over 20 years of experience in salons the real ‘Salon Advantage’ is in helping customers fill their salons and recoup many times more than their investment in their software. Marketing campaigns, reservation forecasting and KPI management are some of the cool features that help salons grow – but we have many more planned.

We are looking for a talented full-stack developer to join our central Brighton team to really accelerate the development of new features, and to support the rapidly growing product

Skills Range:

Technology Stack

- Node.js
- Meteor JS (blaze)
- JQuery / Bootstrap (who knew?)
- Postgresql
- PaaS hosting (Heroku dynos take the pain out of devops)
- Ruby on Rails (legacy only)

About the role

This position involves:

• Working closely with the management team to plan and develop new features
• Weekly sprint cycles with realistic targets
• Understanding customer feedback and solving through innovation
• Investigating, finding and squashing bugs

Salon Advantage has a large customer base and adoption for this new product is rapid. This role is ideal for an ambitous developer with good experience in Node and at least one Javascript framework. Meteor would be ideal however Angular/React/Vue etc are all relevant.
