Job Description

This role is all about pitching in. We're in full start-up mode so while you will have a focus on front end development, you'll be rolling your sleeves up and getting stuck in wherever you can add value.

“Looks Good, Works Well!” is the way you approach your work; you are interested in both form and function; and enjoy working directly with designers to realize cutting edge frontend user experiences that are implemented with technical excellence using an SPA approach. 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.


We are looking for 3+ years experience in enterprise JavaScript and exposure to the following areas:

  • HTML, CSS, JavaScript ES5 and/or ES6/2015
  • Vue experience preferred
  • React or Angular an advantage
  • Bootstrap or similar UI framework
  • 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
