You are passionate about web development and understand the latest frontend technologies. You know that delivering an experience and not just building them is of prime importance: you make sure your software ships, and you are able to make the practical tradeoffs to prioritize work to manage timelines.

  • HTML, CSS, JavaScript ES5 and ES6/2015
  • React, Angular, or Vue experience - we aren't fussed which
  • Bootstrap or similar ui framework
  • Build systems like Webpack or similar
  • UI testing beneficial
  • Any backend experience with node/php/java/.net and mysql/mariadb or any database is well regarded
  • Solid thinker with good communications skills
