We are strengthening Maersk's software development organisation, focusing on driving predictability, reducing cost of ownership and increasing agility in our technology. We are hiring Senior UI Engineers with strong front-end development skills and experience to help shape UI engineering within Maersk Technology.
We Offer
Can you help to improve global supply chain logistics? Are you excited to work on a platform that handles millions of people booking and tracking shipments around the globe? In this role, your team will have long-term ownership of one or more applications (e.g. booking a shipment), covering build, test, transition and operation for Maersk's customer-facing systems.

Do you want to be supported in your development as a senior engineer? You will work alongside other developers, mentoring them and learning from them and from the wider Maersk technology teams around the world. We pride ourselves on our brands and identity that builds on our heritage. This role is an opportunity to be part of Maersk's digital evolution.

Your considerable skills will be applied to applications built in both old and new frameworks and architectures; from server-side rendered applications using Backbone JS to SPA’s built in VueJS, backed by modern APIs.
Key Responsibilities
The role will involve:

• Hands-on front-end architecture, development & implementation. You will craft unit & integration tests across all components with code re-use being key to success

• Travel to Maersk locations to meet and work with development team members based abroad (e.g. Denmark), though this will be infrequent
Key responsibilities
• Participation in the elaboration of user stories (technical and functional). Agree stories are sufficiently described for their implementation, verification and delivery.
• Helping to define and maintain front-end development standards adopted by the development teams and external service providers
• You are responsible for the quality design and implementation (supportable, maintainable, scalable, performant, secure) of applications delivering business value
• Collaborating with product owners to identify and mitigate risks, issues, and tech debt, as well as to find new ways to make the websites better
