Oscatel is hiring a JavaScript Developer to design and implement full stack solutions for a range of projects that underpin operational services for mobile carriers.


We're an established software provider that's bringing development back in house. We're building modular, scalable, solutions - many of which will become long-term products - mainly around operational support services for carriers, and all of which we will help you get to grips with.


The domain entails data-intensive services where security, data integrity and uptime are key. This presents lots of interesting design and coding challenges as we build and integrate our technology. 


You can anticipate a mix of well-defined greenfield projects, initially focused on implementing the application and front ends for a large customer deliverable, along with substantial exploratory work as we validate concepts and build new solutions, maturing these into products. 


We offer a culture where you may work under your own initiative as part of a collaborative effort towards common goals. It's an opportunity to be a formative team member, and to grow and improve together.


Early projects within the team

  • Helping build the central data store, using Node.js
  • JavaScript consoles and dashboards for service admins
  • Representing comprehensive data from analytics and alerting tools
  • Selecting JavaScript frameworks and tools
  • Working towards adoption of containers and Kubernetes
  • Adopting GraphQL
  • Helping establish our development culture, methods and automation


We're looking for

  • Someone able to write code that's efficient, robust, documented and well tested
  • Strong JavaScript/TypeScript, accrued in a modern web application context
  • Familiarity with a current JS framework, and agnostic about framework choice
  • Readiness to adopt Node.js, plus Kendo UI/Sencha/similar
  • User empathy, web service writing skills, and solid SQL/MySQL
  • Ability to understand complex requirements, to uphold security of sensitive data and to conform to best practices
  • Someone considering junior or mid level full stack JavaScript jobs in Bristol such as: JavaScript Developer | Node.js Developer | Full Stack Developer | React Developer | Vue Developer | Front End Developer etc.


Current ecosystem - we'll help you get up to speed

JavaScript | Node.js | Elasticsearch | RabbitMQ | MySQL | Docker | AWS | Linux | Atlassian stack


Salary and benefits

  • £30,000 - £55,000+ we're keeping an open mind
  • 25 days holiday, plus public holidays and a day for your birthday
  • Flexible working - tell us what you need
  • One/two days' remote working each week, once up to speed
  • Modern serviced office with a canteen, showers, bike parking
  • Personal development plan that you can shape, with budget for related training/certifications

We're looking for someone who wants to write great software that utilises our domain knowledge and creates value for our customers.
