What will I be doing?

We currently have a small team of engineers and have successfully designed and built a product which is used across some of Ireland's most progressive Veterinary Clinics & Hospitals. You'll be part of this growing team, and help design, implement, and deploy the next tier of software components.

A major part of this is implementing the code that drives our products, but the role includes contributing along the whole development process, including: deciding what features to build, driving the design and architecture, testing and deployment, documenting the features and design.


What technologies will I be using?

Our main product is delivered as a (single page) Progressive Web Application - the core technologies are JS, HTML, CSS, REST. Server is also written in JavaScript (NodeJS) using MongoDB as a data store. The application server is hosted on AWS. We deploy to web (modern browsers only), iOS, Android, and Windows (same code base, using Capacitor / Electron).

Rather than depending fully on one specific client-side JavaScript framework, we instead have a purpose-built internal architecture, that borrows concepts and implementation patterns from the best open-source frameworks to fit our needs. Some of the concepts that we use are listed below. If you have used any modern JavaScript framework, you’ll feel right at home here.

·         Live data updates (via Server Sent Events)

·         Reactive UI views (similar to React, Vue, Svelte, etc…)

·         Simple declarative UI templates (HTML & CSS)

·         Native Web Components for common elements (e.g. Buttons, Input Fields)

·         Single-file UI components for views (similar to .vue / .svelte components)

·         Seamless data layer (similar to Ember Data Store + CouchDB / PouchDB)

·         Encrypted offline data cache (similar to IBM JSONStore)

·         Server-side reactive data processing (MongoDB Change Streams & Lamba Functions)

·         Client-side multi-threading via Web Workers

Our architecture goals include:

·         High-performance runtime (fast & responsive on all devices).

·         Separation of concerns for the core layers (server processing, data sync, REST API, business logic, client-side storage, UI components, etc.). Each component does one thing, and does it well.

·         Common client / server modules and business logic use the same code to keep internal APIs consistent; avoiding duplication of logic.

·         Great DX – it's fast and seamless to build out new components.

·         Solid telemetry across the platform for quickly isolating issues in development & production.

What skills do I need?

·         Solid fundamentals in web application technologies: JavaScript, HTML, CSS.

·         Experience building API-driven client applications.

·         Experience building web services and APIs; for example, in JavaScript (NodeJS, Deno), Python, Java, C/C++, Ruby, PHP.

·         A solid grounding in Computer Science fundamentals, data structures, algorithms, object-oriented design and systems architecture.

·         Understanding of cloud infrastructure fundamentals (virtual machines, basic networking principles, Linux command line).

·         Excellent problem solving and troubleshooting skills.
