About The Role
We are looking for back-end, front-end and full-stack developers with Node.js experience.
You will work on delivering digital transformation projects at FTSE-100 companies, all of them household names, using technologies such as Node.js, React and Kubernetes.
A YLD Software Engineering Consultant is a highly-skilled developer who exemplifies the highest standard in software engineering and enjoys sharing his/her knowledge and experience with others.
