Wren are prioritising the long term security and scalability of their proprietary 2D / 3D CAD package and have a challenge on offer for Senior JavaScript Developers to have massive sway over architectural decisions as the product continues to mature. The CAD Planner tool allows Kitchen Designers the ability to build a kitchen in 2D plan, allowing the Kitchen Designers to bring the customer's dream kitchen to life. The planner ensures no collisions between units and compliance with regulations / manufacturing capabilities during design, before moving the kitchen into highly detailed 3D walk around environment (powered by an in-house Unity3D team), enabling customers to see and feel how their new kitchen will look in their own home before committing to a purchase.

Key challenges for this teams at the moment are:

  • Architectural decisions around the structure of the application
  • Development of APIs to ensure that the planner is being fed with the best quality information from across the business
  • Application security

The Senior JavaScript Developer will join at an exciting time for Wren Kitchens and will be pivotal in the success of Wren's digital offerings in the coming years. The development team are open, collaborative and genuinely forward thinking, encouraging ideas and input from the most junior of developers and expecting input on architectural decisions from those with more experience.
