INTRODUCTION TO WASTECARE

Established in 1980, the WasteCare Group now employs over 500 people based at 9 regional service centres and 7 recycling facilities throughout the UK. We collect and recycle over 200,000 tonnes of hazardous and difficult waste, on behalf of over 20,000 organisations annually throughout the UK. We’ve been recently listed in the Sunday Times Fast Track 100 for companies with the fastest growing profit and we’re looking to set our sights even higher in 2022.

Our growth and success are due to our commitment to providing our clients with a first-class service combined with the highest environmental standards. As a private company, we are continually investing in innovative technology and sustainable growth. This has enabled us to combine a deep understanding of our clients’ requirements with a uniquely flexible service that can be readily tailored to any organisational requirement, within an evolving market and ever-changing regulation.

To drive our growth, we are always looking for the best talent to join our teams across all our divisions. We are currently looking for a front-end developer

THE ROLE

 

Working alongside colleagues in the Development Team, you will be the primary developer responsible for the front-end development of our In-house developed ERP/CRM.

We’re running a Microsoft stack, with on-premise SQL server, and a C# web application that Is part Webforms and part MVC (we’re transitioning to fully MVC). We have a mix of front-end technologies from vanilla JavaScript through to KnockoutJS and Vue. The mix of MVC and Webforms makes for some interesting challenges when trying to standardise a front-end toolkit, so you’ll need to be adaptable and be able to think pragmatically and sometimes a little bit out of the box!

As the only dedicated front-end developer, you’ll be helping us standardise and re-architect our front-end, both from styling and code (which admittedly needs some help!), from the simple enhancement of CRUD based screens through to richer features that operate as an SPA. You’ll be responsible for working with our analysts and designers to implement designs and functionality that make a real difference to our users.

This is a role where your input will be valued and quite wide ranging, we’re a small growing team and are looking to work together to solve problems.  You’ll also need to work with out back-end developers to create workflows and define process that play to everyone’s strengths, so an interest in any back-end technology may be hugely beneficial.

  • Pricing calculators in our customer portal
