About VantiUsing technology to improve people’s experience and wellbeing in the spaces where they ​work, play, learn, and live.

We have humble and people-focused roots that we’re proud to keep despite growing significantly over the past 15 years. We believe this attitude helps us consistently exceed expectations when delivering and integrating the technology within a building.

In the very beginning, Vanti started with founder Raj frantically cycling around London with a rucksack full of AV gear and drill bits, working on everything and anything he could. Fast forward to the present day and we’ve moved into a central Birmingham location with its own warehouse, workshop, testing lab, and a few resident pooches. It’s a real hotspot for collaboration and innovation that is bursting with passion and excitement.

We believe commercial real estate can do more for stakeholders, occupants, and visitors. We transform buildings into smart and efficient environments where people want to work, play, learn, and live; our ever-growing portfolio of projects includes some world-class cutting-edge tech solutions from central London skyscrapers to iconic Birmingham buildings.

About the roleWe are looking for someone to help us develop a cloud-based solution for the modern smart workplace. We are using Firebase (Google Cloud Platform) and Vue.js (front-end web) to develop modern progressive web apps for the smart workplace. This includes desk booking and room booking solutions; supporting mobile, tablets, desktop, and custom kiosks. Our agile software development process helps us quickly respond to customer needs, and implementing new features will be a key part of the role.

What you’ll be doing
  • Developing front end web applications with Vue.js and Firebase including:
  • Adding new features
  • Finding and fixing bugs
  • Designing user interface components
  • Working with Firebase to enable the UI to function securely, including:
  • Writing and testing cloud functions (Node.js)
  • Writing and testing Firebase security rules
  • Deliver and support all phases of the software development lifecycle including analysis, design, deliver functionality, testing, support, and documentation
  • Gathering and refining specifications and requirements based on technical needs.
  • Build scalable applications from early design phases through to delivery
  • Assist with the delivery of larger projects within a tight deadline
  • Work closely with the existing dev team, as well as working with designers and others across the business.
REQUIREMENTS
About you

We’re a complex business operating within complex industries, and we recognise that it might not suit everyone. That’s why we look for the right personality and culture fit before we look at skills and experience, and we try not to put too much importance on qualifications (unless they’re absolutely essential for the role, like an electrician for example). We’ve highlighted below what we think would be the ideal skills and experience for this role, but if you think you’ve got relevant transferrable skills and experience feel free to apply and make sure this is highlighted in your application.

 

The ideal candidate will have all the below technical abilities:

  • Expert knowledge of HTML5, JavaScript, & CSS3
  • In depth knowledge and experience using Vue.js
  • Familiarity with Git for version control
  • Experience with Material Design and the Vuetify framework
  • Experience with Firebase
  • Experience with Progressive Web Apps

We also think you should be/have:

  • Excellent logical problem solving and analytical skills
  • Someone who enjoys complex programming challenges, with the attention to detail for good user interface design
  • Someone who enjoys picking up new technologies and is interested in keeping up with the latest developments for the modern tech we use.
  • Someone who wants to have the chance to impact the company’s growth and evolution
  • Someone who wants to work with people who love what they do every day, and be part of a team who are continually sharing ideas with each other and learning

Benefits and compensation

Salary

Because we know how important it is to give people an idea of what they’d be earning in this role, the salary range we’ve got in mind is £30,000-£35,000. If that sounds ok to you (or even if it doesn’t), we’d like to say a bit more about salaries, so please read on…

We have a rough idea in mind of what salaries we pay for certain types of roles based on current team members and market rate (hence the range we’ve advertised for this role), but we prefer to have conversations with candidates and discuss what they’re looking for.  We would hate to say “we will  only  pay up to £35,000” and for that to put someone off who could add huge value to our growth journey.

We’re transparent and happy to chat about all things finance and money very openly, so feel free to ask us if you’d like to know more!

  • Company discounts/vouchers – earned through creating healthy lifestyle habits
