We have an excellent opportunity for a Front-End Developer in Glasgow to join an early stage, but well-established business with excellent backing and highly experienced leadership.

If you are willing to learn, like to get things done, like to be proud of what you deliver, and enjoy what you do, this is for you!
Our client is developing a new product that allows a virtual consultation between patients and opticians. The platform was developed in ReactJs, integrating with an api developed in Django Rest Framework. The system also has a facial recognition library to allow the dynamic change of test content according to the patient's movement.
The Front-End Developer’s primary focus will be on developing user interface components and implementing them following React.js best practices.
