We are looking for front-end React engineers to join our team supporting our enterprise clients. You will work with the front-end team and the user experience team to develop new UI components and views in React based on UX specifications in Sketch.
- React 16
- Jest (unit tests)
- Storybook JS (UI component development)
- Styled components
- Semantic UI (UI component base)
- Webpack 2-3
Experience in the following technologies are also highly desirable but not required
- Knockout JS
What you will do
Your primary responsibility is to cleanly and efficiently build application components using React by based on requirements from the UX/design team. This includes:
- Taking written and design requirements (in Sketch, Confluence) and implementing in React/CSS
- Ability to assess a technical or design requirement and break it into subtasks with accurate estimates on time to deliver
- Act as a primary/lead React developer, which includes helping less experienced developers in understanding React and performing code reviews
- Documenting your design and implementing core components/documentation using Storybook.js
Given that this position is completely remote, the most important requirement of the job is communication. All communication is done via Slack/Hangouts/phone, which means you respond quickly in Slack to questions and you do not hesitate to reach out and discuss concerns, questions, or issues with the team. Of course, you are ultimately measured on the quality and timeliness of your output, but we have seen many competent consultants fail; they failed not because they could not code, but because they were not good at communicating status or working with the team to achieve common goals.
What we seek
- Up to 2yrs experience working with React professionally. We will consider candidates with no on-job experience, but only if they have example work that demonstrates aptitude with React.
- Someone with an eye and patience for detail, who is able to take visual requirements and reproduce pixel-perfect replications in code.
- A clear communicator that is able to articulate problems and even present architecture/design in front of clients. If you don’t like to speak in front of groups, or don’t like interacting with other humans, then this job isn’t for you.
- Self-motivated individuals who know they need to get a job done and do not require constant hand-holding or oversite.
- Someone who desires remote work and autonomy. This is not for you if you think of work as a chance to meet people and make friends around the water cooler. You also need to be able to clearly separate your work time from the rest of your life and diligently get the job done.
