Who are we?

Airship is an established SaaS (software as a service) company based in Sheffield. We have two products that serve the best and most exciting brands in the UK hospitality industry - think Revolution, Byron, The Alchemist, Leon, Turtle Bay, Franco Manca, Zizzi and many more.

We’re looking for a front end developer to join our engineering team. The position is remote-first and we’re open to some flexible working, so you’re not tied to the office.

Our development team are proud to be the 2021 winners of the UK Dev Awards “Best Dev Team of the Year”, and we are looking to welcome someone aboard to help strengthen our team even further.

The role

Your role will kick off with mastering our overall product architectures, shadowing other developers and learning the ropes. You’ll immediately drop into our sprint kick-offs and stand-ups so you have exposure to our processes and learn how we work and who we are.

Once you’ve found your feet and know your way around our products, you’ll start collaborating and brainstorming solutions with our Chief Experience Officer (CXO), Head of Product and Head of Engineering, plus the rest of the development team.

You’ll help to modernise the front end of our older product while taking full advantage of our newer PWA’s codebase and component libraries to quickly prototype, iterate and release new features, working alongside other developers.

Bugs are bugs, and we’re not immune to them either. You’ll be quality-focussed, squashing the critical ones as they arise, assisting the customer success team with troubleshooting where necessary.

About you

You’ll love creating and coding front-end progressive web apps with meticulous attention to user-experience and detail. You’ll have a pixel-perfect eye for design and brand consistency along with the ability to maintain great user-experience across all devices and screen sizes. You’ll also care deeply about learning your craft as well as contributing to the success of our products. You’ll no doubt have some of your own personal and professional projects under your belt to show off your technical interests and proven track record, and probably be somewhat obsessed with writing readable, secure, accessible, testable, standards-compliant code.

Our engineering team generally works on web based applications, so you’ll need to be very familiar with HTML, CSS and Javascript. Experience in NodeJS, Laravel, Vue.js or React would be useful too. You will also be very familiar with APIs, including REST and GraphQL. You’ll have a good understanding of building component libraries that can be used to quickly build interfaces that are consistently on-brand.

A graduate degree is not a necessity. We welcome applications from self-taught developers and graduates alike.

Benefits & culture

We work (global pandemics-aside) from our custom fitted out offices in the iconic Park Hill, right next to Sheffield Train station. We have views over the city, green spaces front and back and plenty of space.

We equip everyone with a Macbook as standard (but if you’d rather work on something else, we won’t force you!).

There is an EMI share options scheme in place for employees, so our gain is your gain too.

We are very open to flexible and remote working, so if you’re interested but not able to work in the office everyday, you can work remotely instead and we can meet up now and again for some team contact days (for this reason, we’d prefer if you were somewhere in the UK).

Where can I find more information?

The best place to start is by checking us out on our two product websites:
