Full Stack JavaScript Developer

Based in Fareham, PO16 8UT


Proagrica is looking for a full stack JavaScript Developer with a strong background in Software Engineering to join its expanding Data & Analytics group. This represents an exciting opportunity to join Proagrica and implement and utilise a range of open source technologies.


The successful candidate will be expected to work within the data visualisation team and create rich web applications using off-the-shelf charting libraries such as Highcharts. Our Tech Stack includes React, Redux, SemanticUI, Node.js, ElasticSearch and MongoDB; experience with any of the above technologies would be ideal, however strong JavaScript experience is essential for the role.


The majority of the work requires writing full stack code, involving queries for data retrieval, implementation of API Endpoints in Node.js and visualisation of data using React and various visualisation libraries. 


Given the profile of the role, prior exposure to Data Products is desirable, but not essential.


The Data Engineer role is based in the Fareham office and will report to a Senior Developer. Travel to other Proagrica offices (mainly Sutton) will be essential.

  • Experience with document databases.

How important is technology to Proagrica?

We use modern technologies, work almost exclusively in the cloud and focus on agile development approaches.


What’s it like to work here?


Outstanding - you’ve probably already got a feel for what we do and the technology we’re involved with but what’s really stands us out from the crowd is our culture. We’re an agile, dynamic and forward thinking organisation who understands the importance of looking after our staff. We pride ourselves on delivering high-quality products, providing our employees with interesting challenges for their personal and career development whilst also striking the right balance between work and family life.


In addition to all of this we offer the following 'core' benefits:

  • Pension and life assurance scheme
  • SAYE Share Options Scheme 


There are also AIP (bonus), car allowance, and medical benefits available at more senior levels within the business.


And what about your career?


Career development is a big thing for us and we take our PDP (personal development plan) process very seriously; we want you to learn and progress quickly in the direction you want to go and we will provide you with the training and support to achieve that at the right pace. The great thing about us career-wise is that we’re a company made up of leading online businesses so you can develop in three dimensions, vertically through the business, across different brands, and across different functions (if you fancy a change). We’re also an increasingly international business and are often able to offer overseas opportunities either as secondments or on a permanent basis.
