The main responsibility in the role will be to translate UX design / wireframes into code to produce the visual elements of the application. You will work closely with our UX designers and back end Engineers to bridge the gap between graphical design and technical implementation. Working within a very collaborative, supportive and close-knit team, you will be focusing your time developing the new code base. You will have opportunity to use your Vue.JS or  React skills to develop our ‘mobile first’ sites whilst also being given the opportunity to develop your backend skills through use of Razor etc. 


Typical Duties

  • Develop new user facing features
  • Build reusable code and libraries for future re-use
  • Ensure the technical feasibility of UI/UX designs
  • Optimise applications for maximum speed and scalability
  • Assure that all user input is validated before submitting to back end
  • Participate and collaborate in a fast-paced Agile team throughout the entire software development life-cycle



We are looking for someone with flair! We have a lively, collaborative culture, which we anticipate you being an active and enthusiastic participant in. As the creative arm of the business, we live and breathe innovation, and as the expert in your space, you will be looked to for ingenuity.


Ideal experience:

  • Working with Designers (i.e. generating sites from Mockups)
  • WebPack, gulp, grunt, etc.
  • React and / or VueJs
  • SPA applications
  • Cross Browser development
  • Great communication and interpersonal skills
  • Keen appetite for self-development and continuous improvement


Candidates who have cloud experience i.e. azure/ AWS or some knowledge of Backend technologies (e.g. dotnet, java, php etc.) will be of high interest, but is not essential.


What are we offering?

Our platform, working practices, technology stack, well... everything, is constantly evolving.  We're offering developers the ability to work with autonomy in a company that doesn't "do" agile, but rather "is" agile. We are keen to promote home working practices! Our role is to make MAGO a technology leader, and be a global market leader as we continue to grow as an airport centric travel company . We will pay a competitive salary + pension + parking and reduced public transport, along with various corporate benefits and salary sacrifice schemes
