Inside IR35

Our public sector client is looking for an experienced front - end developer to improve the graphical user interface of an R shiney application. This is a decision support tool which allows archivists with risk assessment by changing parameters and seeing how different policies and scenarios measure risk.
You will work in an Agile way and scope the work initially. The whole team is working remotely and we would expect the developer to have their own equipment and technology. In particular, you will need access to R, git and the ability to download R packages. Work patterns should fit within standard UK working hours i.e. weekdays 9-5 though we are willing to discuss more flexible arrangements.
There will be regular virtual meetings, which are currently held on MS Teams, and the team uses Slack for quick communications, but there is flexibility with the virtual communication methods available.

Essential skills and Experience

  • Have strong experience of developing applications in R using shiny and other supporting packages (or similar technologies, please specify).
  • Have experience of User Interface development for a web-based application including interactive graphs and visualisations.
  • Have the ability to test components and pages against accessibility standards and fix accessibility issues identified through testing.
  • Write clean, accessible and performant code that it is open by default and easy for others to re-use.
  • Work in an Agile way, following a test-driver approach and demonstrating progress and discussing findings regularly.

Nice to have skills and experience

  • Have experience of coding in R.
  • Have a working knowledge of Git for version control.
  • Have a working knowledge of HTML, CSS and/or JavaScript.
  • Have a working knowledge of performance optimisation.
  • Have a background in statistics or analysis
