Senior JavaScript / React Developer

The Company & the role

Tourwriter is an established and award-winning SaaS tech company, whose mission is to build the most loved and intuitive itinerary creation software, delighting and inspiring specialist travel experts to create truly memorable travel experiences.

Tourwriter is currently undergoing a period of rapid growth and we’re on the lookout for some exceptional talent to join our team. Our culture thrives on innovation through experimentation, giving people the freedom to explore and seek out alternative solutions to solve real-world problems. Tourwriter is no ordinary company, so we don’t expect you to be either. If you love learning new things and enjoy making the impossible happen – we need you!

We build new features on top of a modern stack, consisting of web and mobile front-end apps (React), communicating through APIs to .NET and Node.js services, backed by Postgres databases, all deployed using Docker in a continuous delivery cycle to AWS. You don’t need to have experience in all these specific technologies: we’re great at teaching good developers how to use our modern SaaS stack. We don’t follow rigid Scrum or Kanban, but we do work in an agile, iterative way, deploying changes continuously to production.

We’re on the lookout for an exceptional senior developer to work in our Product Team. You will get the chance to work alongside some very talented individuals building performant user interfaces and components using modern JavaScript technology and toolsets. There is also opportunity to work on back-end integrations and APIs if you are that way inclined.

  • Experience in applying responsive design.
