Creative Technologist at W12

Creative Technologist

At W12, we’re looking for someone who brings concepts to life, using code as a creative tool to present your ideas. You should have a certain degree of autonomy in programming languages and frameworks, but the finished prototype should feel as real as possible.

We are looking for someone who is comfortable working on the design phase of a product’s lifecycle and someone who is always curious and excited to learn new things.

The successful candidate will be involved with each stage of the design process and lead the production of high-fidelity interactive prototypes that show the clients and engineers exactly how the product will work.

As a Creative Technologist, you will be expected to;

  • Experience working as a creative technologist or developer with a keen eye for design or come from a design background
  • Experience with modern front-end frameworks and workflows. (e.g Reactjs, webpack, SASS)
  • JavaScript - Strong programming fundamentals
  • Understanding of OOP, software design patterns, agile project management and version control (Git)
  • Have outstanding technical, problem solving and communication skills
  • Willingness to turn your hand to and learn new technologies as they arise
  • A good understanding of visual design and UX, particularly responsive design
  • A good level of competence within Photoshop, Illustrator and Indesign.
  • Self-motivated, enthusiastic, with excellent time management.
  • A portfolio demonstrating form and function across a variety product

How we work

  • We use a modern front-end stack, combining React, Babel, Webpack and PostCSS
  • We work closely with the design team, giving input on the UX and Visual approach, also pointing out any technical considerations
  • We don’t produce production code; we create prototypes to explore and communicate concepts and undergo user testing. Meaning we are flexible on the implementation, as long as it looks like the final product and conveys the end user experience.
