Digitalent is proud to be partnering with a highly successfully E-Commerce firm within the gaming,
gambling and competitions industry for this exciting opportunity.
This company was started just over four and a half years ago in Blackpool by a young local
entrepreneur who had seen a company offering a similar service but a delivering a terrible
customer experience. He started the business in the belief that he could create something better.
Four years on and the company is now performing outstandingly from a sales perspective, growing
by more than 100% every year for the past three years. The company has invested in brand new
state of the art offices in Poulton-Le-Fylde and the new office will be ready in early October for the
team to move in.
The business relies solely on the website and mobile app to generate sales and they are now in a
position where they would like to phase out their overseas Development Team of 3 Developers and
bring these roles in-house here in the UK.
Due to the financial success of the company for the past few years, they are now looking to grow
the wider team by at least 5 staff and the Senior Developer role will be the go-to person within the
team from a Software Development and Technology perspective.
After an initial few months handover period with the Lead Developer overseas, this role will
become a stand alone role initially with a view to building a small team of Developers around this
person. The role will report directly into the Founder of the business and there will be lots of
opportunity to have a real impact on the direction of the company from a tech perspective. The day
to day role will be fast paced and have no ‘red-tape’ as you will be working so closely with the
leader and key decision maker of the business.
The Senior Developer role will be involved in developing new features as well as maintaining this
hugely successful website, mobile apps and backend.
The website and mobile apps have been developed in React JS and React Native with some Node
JS using Firebase as the platform to develop the website and mobile apps.
• React JS
• React Native
• Node JS
• Front end skills in HTML / CSS / jQuery
Desirable skills and experience (NOT Essential):
The role will initially be working from home until the new office refurb is completed and ready for
staff to move in around early October. There will then be a requirement for at least the first 6
months to be working full-time from the new office in Poulton-Le-Fylde. There may be an option to
work from home more frequently after this initial period of time.
In order to attract the right calibre of candidate, the company is willing to pay extremely well from a
salary perspective and they also offer regular monthly and quarterly bonuses based on overall
There will also be the opportunity to test out some of the competition prizes on offer to the website
and app customers which include pretty cool gadgets and you’d be able to drive some high
performance sports cars (Ferrari’s, Lamborghini’s etc) too if that’s your thing!
